    I have just performed a P2V conversion using vCenter Converter Standalone with a legacy Dell PowerEdge R2950 running Windows Server 2003 R2 with SP2.  The conversion completed 100% successfully and I'm able to boot the converted VM on my ESXI 6.7 U1 host.  However, I'm unable to install the VMware Tools to the VM to complete the driver setup for the NIC.  I'm running the latest build of VMware Tools of 10338.  I'm getting the following pop-up error in vCenter when I attempt to install VMware Tools:


    "The required VMware Tools ISO image does not exist or is inaccessible."


    I presume the issue is due to running such an old version of Windows Server 2003 on the converted VM.  Is there a way to manually install this version of VMware tools or possibly an older version of VMware tools so that I can get the NIC drivers to complete?  The original server is using a motherboard NIC by Broadcom. 


    Thanks for any input.

  • 09/06/18--07:46: Migrate NSX-V rules to NSX-T
  • We are in the process of migrating from NSX-V to NSX-T.


    Many of our DFW rules leverage virtual machines as objects which does not appear to be a paradigm within NSX-T.


    Is there any PowerCLI available that will assist in collecting the IPs for each VM object and rewriting the rules using IP addresses?


    We know there is a migration tool in the works, but we are looking for something now.


    Thanks in advance!

    Hi All,

    The Port Group have a "backup network" but report missing and the VM guest goes to half.

    When I create a "new port group", it can assign it but the "backup network" is missing on the network adapter.

    Even reboot the ESXI host the problem can't be fixed.


    Please advise.

    P.S. I also tried 6.5 but same results.

    any help would be much appreciated.

    after first reboot it becomes empty



    under windows 10 I never get access to it to be precise I never found it



    After all I was prompted to install vmware tools

    but I  can't find them anywhere



    Above the technical questions can't understand why I can't fill in a support request

    At the moment I can't share data between vms and the host I'm tottally locked ouy of my work

    I have a script to collect performance data from vCenter 6.0, here is the script code snippet with comments:


    First of all, script gets the metric list for which I want to collect perf data, then it creates queryspecs for all entities (host and VMs) using the following code.

    Queryspec for host:

    entities = []


    host_mor = ManagedObjectReference(value=host_moid, _type="HostSystem")

    queryspec ='PerfQuerySpec', entity=host_mor, metricId=metrics, format=format_type, intervalId=20, startTime=st, endTime=et)



    Same as queryspec for VMs which are powered on and exist on this host system and append to entities.


    Then this queryspec is passed to the performance query method to retrieve performance data.


    perfdata = Connection.perfmanager.queryPerf(entities)


    The script is working properly in the normal scenario and it is running continuously at every 180 seconds with the 180-seconds difference b/w startTime and endTime. But in some case, it throws the following error:

    Serverraisedfault: 'Theobjecthasalreadybeendeletedorhasnotbeencompletelycreated'


    If I checked the vpxd logs on vCenter then able to get the log for the same failure at same time with queryspec in log file.

    -->          },

    -->          (vim.PerformanceManager.MetricId) {

    -->             counterId = 513,

    -->             instance = ""



    Here it gives vm-105 object not found and due to which "Received SOAP response fault" but If I check for the "vm-105" object then it does not exist. For all the failures it gives different objects which do not exist on that server.


    Note: I have also logged querspec created by script and it doesn't contain the missing object still vCenter is throwing the error for it.

    Can anyone please help when this error occurs and where to get information about this missing object?

    I am developping custom credential provider for a horizon remote desktop. I need to get authentication informations that is authenticated with Horizon Client on the client side.

    Because Horizon don't give authentication informations to the credential provider.


    If I use RDP protocol, I can get a user and domain name from WTSQueryInformation(Windows API). But If I use PCoIP or Blast, I can't get none of informations.


    I checked "Session Enhancement SDK" and "RDP VC Bridge SDK". But I couldn't find such apis.


    Can I get a user name and domain name and password of horizon client on remote(desktop) side?

    Is there any SDK that has such functionality?

    Dear All,


    I have upgraded my vcenter to 6.5 U2 (in place upgrade) from vcenter 5.5 using sql database on Windows 2012 R2, so as migration procedure the database is migrated to PostgreSQL. All is well but still I see that services for 'sql server (vim_sqlexp) are running on the windows server which is off course taking resources of system.


    My question is can I turn off services for SQL server and the DB (VIM_VCDB) since it is moved to PostgreSQL, as I understood from the migration procedure. I need advice before I stop SQL services to reduce resource utilization.

    I'm trying to restore single files from VDP backup of linux machines (vSphere Data Protection Linux File Level Restore - VMware vSphere Blog).


    Everything is at the most recent release. When I try to mount the backup in the flash client (https://VDP_APPLIANCE:8543/flr) I get this error:

    Failed to get disks: Failed to determine the partition type. Verify that all the disks on the VM have valid/supported partitions 


    I tried with nodes with various disk structures, but the error is always the same:

    VDP manual says that at least ext4 (first try) should be supported. By the way, is it possible that XFS (the default RedHat filesystem) is not supported at all?


    Thank you very much!

    Hello Everyone,


    Can we pull the Hardware upgrade compatibility & VMware tools upgrade Scheduled or enabled at next re-boot  for bulk VM's from the lists e.g. C:\Temp\list.txt

    Not for individual VM.




        @{N='HW Upgrade Scheduled';E={$_.ExtensionData.ScheduledHardwareUpgrade.UpgradePolicy -eq'OnSoftPoweroff'}},

        @{N='Tools Upgrade Scheduled';E={$_.ExtensionData.Tools.ToolsUpgradePolicy -eq'UpgradeAtPowerCycle'}}

    Hi all,


    Here's my scenario:


    I have two VMWare ESX hosts in a cluster connected to a storage array with all the required licensing for vMotion etc..  This is managed by a vCenter Server Essentials server installed on a standalone ESXi server using a free license.  The reason for this is to have the management outside of the cluster.


    I want to upgrade the vCenter server to 6.7, but get the following error during the upgrade process: VCHA is not enabled on the source host.


    Short of copying the appliance onto my VMWare cluster to do the upgrade, is there a way of getting around this without me having to copy the appliance?

    Hoping to get some help with this as I just recently got into powercli scripting and what I am being asked to provide is a bit above my expertise right now.

    I have an environment that has multiple virtual centers, multiple clusters in each virtual center, and multiple resource pools in each cluster. Resource Pools have specific names for example each cluster has a resource pools who's names start with 01 and resoure pools who's names start with 22.  I need to be able to collect resource pool stats for only resource pools who's names start with 22 in all clusters that are in all virtual centers.  I need to be able to collect cpu average, cpu maximum usage, memory average, memory maximum usage.  These stats need to be collected in eight hour intervals so that it can be sent out three times a day (midnight, 8:00 am, 4:00 pm) and they need to be shown in a percentage.  The resource pools correspond to an application compute pool so I also need to be able to convert the resource pool name to the compute pool name.  So something like :

    Compute pool 01 = virtual center 01, cluster 01, resource pool 22*

    Compute pool 02 = virtual center 01, cluster 02, resource pool 22*

    Compute pool 03 = virtual center 01, cluster 03, resource pool 22*

    Compute pool 04 = virtual center 02, cluster 01, resource pool 22*


    I have also attached an empty spreadsheet that shows an example of the fields I need.

    I appreciate any help I could get or if someone could point me in the right direction.

    I have three hosts with the following hardware for Homelab :

    1x USB for ESXi installation

    1x 250GB SSD for vSAN cache

    1x 500GB SSD for VSAN


    On the 250GB SSD is now the scratch partition created. I can not use it as a VSAN cache now. The disc can not be deleted.


    Is there a way to move the scratch partition to USB?

    Or other suggestions?

    A while ago I bought an upgrade from PRO12 to PRO15 on Windows and now I have found time to actually install it.

    But I have a number of paused guests on my system (both Linux and Windows virtual machines), do I have to shut these down from within PRO12 before proceeding?

    Or will they work also if I leave them as-is during the upgrade?

    I am on an HP Elitebook 8560w with Windows 7 Pro X64.
