The world v. CrossFit – Can we stop the hate?

I’ve been a fan of fitness for many many years. Am I an “athlete”? I’m sure that depends on the interpretation, but the word athlete is defined as a person who is proficient in sports and other forms of physical exercise. I played football in middle school, by high school, everyone was bigger than me, so I played golf my entire high school career.

After high school, I began going to the gym, mostly light strength training, I would run a little here in there. And by a little, I mean 1-2 miles. I ran a 5k in high school when I was maybe 16, and think I finished with a time of roughly 26 minutes & change, by no means fast.

Fast forward to today. I still hit the gym, although more focused on strength & high intensity. Every once in a while, Google Now will throw something into my feed that’s interesting. A while back, I saw an article from Runners World: The CrossFit Workout Runners Should Actually Try. It outlined some workouts regularly found in CrossFit to help runners.

How to create an NSX CLI user, API user & set up NSX Plugin for vROps

TL-DR: See below for details on these commands

Create a local user in the NSX Manager’s CLI, then use the API to grant CLI privileges to that user.

Here’s how using a linux machine:
ssh admin@[nsxmanagerIP]
user vrops-readonly password plaintext notrealpassword
user vrops-readonly privilege web-interface

Log out of the NSX Manager (type exit) and stay logged into the linux machine.
Create cli-auditor.xml that contains this (replace brackets with greater/less than):
[?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1" ?]

Add the user as an auditor in the NSX Manager as a CLI user:
curl -i -k -u 'admin:password' -H "Content-Type: application/xml" -X POST --data "@cli-auditor.xml" https://nsxmanagerip/api/2.0/services/usermgmt/role/vrops-readonly?isCli=true
Add your domain/vCenter user as an auditor in the NSX Manager (NOT as a CLI user):
curl -i -k -u 'admin:password' -H "Content-Type: application/xml" -X POST --data "@cli-auditor.xml" https://nsxmanagerip/api/2.0/services/usermgmt/role/ReadOnly@THEPHUCK.COM?isCli=false
