    Hi everyone, this seems to be the first question in this community.

    I'm starting to explore AppDefense and its functionality. From now I can say that it is an awesome solution. But I have some doubts and misunderstandings. One of that is about the integration with other security product as well as monitoring tools. For example, with AppDefense, do I still need to use a traditional antivirus? Could AppDefense replace vShield Endpoint? And moreover, I saw and understood the integration with vRealize Automation.... but nowhere I see about integration with vRealize Operation.... I think it should be used in order to detect resource anomalies....or perhaps AppDefense already do it?

  • 12/15/18--00:55: Answer VM Question
  • Hi,


    I am trying to disconnect a CD ISO or change the device type to "client device" in both cases the workflow is getting executed but, the execution is paused until I manually answer a VM Question.


    A VM Question can be answered using PowerCLI example:


    Get-VM my_vm | Get-VMQuestion | Set-VMQuestion -Option button.yes -Confirm:$false


    Can such a VM Question be answered via vRO if yes, how?


    The screenshot of VM Question is shown below:

    I need to change the ESXi setting for my 3PAR.

    need to replace this: "esxcli storage core device set --device "naa.60002acXXXXXXXXXX" --queue-full-sample-size 32 --queue-full-threshold 4" with powercli.

    This works fine:



    $deviceSetArgs = $

    $deviceSetArgs.device = $WWN

    $deviceSetArgs.maxqueuedepth = 32



    But if I try this:



    $deviceSetArgs = $

    $deviceSetArgs.device = $WWN

    $deviceSetArgs.queuefullsamplesize =  4

    $deviceSetArgs.QueueFullThreshold= 32



    powercli returt to me:


    Index (zero based) must be greater than or equal to zero and less than the size of the argument list.

    At line:9 char:1

    + $$deviceSetArgs)

    + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

        + CategoryInfo          : OperationStopped: (:) [], FormatException

        + FullyQualifiedErrorId : System.FormatException


    What am I doing wrong?

    I was correctly using VMWare, when the USB weren't recognized any longer, and sometimes it locked the recognition of the USBs in the host itself, so that I had to reboot the host to make them work again.

    For this reason, I had completely uninstalled VMWare and tried to reinstall it.

    When I try to complete the installation, the wizard fails with the overmentioned error, what should I do?

    Obviously it is official installer downloaded from VMWare website.

    Thank you!

    VMWare Fusion 10.0.1


    Trying to create a VM from my OS X High Sierra system.


    Getting this error "VMware Fusion could not find any recovery partitions on this Mac."


    but "diskutil list" shows a recovery partition DOES exist.


    How do I do this? If I can't then VMEWare Fusion is useless to me.

    I'm having several VMs (created by VMware Workstation) which I didn't use for a
    long time.


    Now I'm going to use them again.


    Unfortunately I couldn't find a way how to perform this.


    If someone knows a solution, please inform me about the procedure.


    Best regards

    Hello, this is my first post.


    I run Windows 10 Home x64 as my host.


    I've been experiencing an issue with Windows 2000 and XP virtual machines where the audio is garbled, cracks, and is distorted.


    Looked all over the internet for a fix, but none of them are working. I've tried reinstalling VMWare Tools, installing drivers for the Creative EsoniqPCI card, editing the .vmx file, and changing the hardware compatibility.


    If anyone has a working fix, I would be glad to try it.


    Thank you.

    When disconnecting a CD ISO for a VM deployed via vSphere host client or vCenter, no VM Question is prompted. However when I try to disconnect a CD ISO connected to a VM deployed vRA, the action requires me to answer a VM Question. Example:



    I believe this behavior is due to an advanced configuration parameter part of VMX. I don't recollect this parameter name/value. Can someone help me with this custom advanced configuration to disable a VM Question on a VM?


    An extension to this question is how can I add such an advanced vmx configuration parameter when deploying a VM via vRA? Maybe define it as part of a blueprint?

  • 12/15/18--08:50: Help Downloading VMWare esxi
  • I want to download VMWare esxi but i keep getting this error "Unable to process your request. Please try again later." I've created an account why won't it let me download

       Bear with me, this is my first day w/ this software as I normally work w/ Hyper-V.  For the life of me I cannot get the AVAGO LSI storage authority to log into my host to display info.  I get the following "Error Code:65537 : Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password"  I've confirmed correct credentials to log into host.

      I did get it to work once oddly and it hasn't since.  What I do notice is in ESXi under  Host | Monitor | hardware | storage | everything but memory is Unknown.


    Hardware:  Lenovo Thinkserver TS460

    RAID controller: embedded MR9340-8i


    Things I have tried/done:

    • Followed instructions and added host file to guest OS.  Both VMWARE and GUEST OS can ping each others host names
    • Disabled firewall on VMWARE per lenovo driver install instructions and confirmed disabled
    • Ensured that LSA detects VMWARE host
    • Ensure slpd and sfcbd-watchdog services were running.  restarted both as a diag step
    • ran enum_instances cim_system lsi/lsimr13 and got the following so I assume it is at least seeing it?



    Name = 500605B00DD3F6E0

    CreationClassName = LSIESG_MegaRAIDHBA


    What is installed:


    • LSIPROVIDER:  LSI Provider for ESX Server 500.04.V0.71-0004 (From broadcom site)
    • RAID DRIVER:  Version: 7.705.10.00-1OEM.670.0.0.8169922 (From lenovo site)


    GUEST OS (2019 Server)

    • LSI Storage Authority
    • MegaRAID 7.7


    Any input would be greatly appreciated.
