    Hi all,

     

    I'm on vRA 7.5, and have the latest/greatest versions of both Chrome and Mozilla. When I attempt to order an AWS server against a specific location the subnets that are listed out in the drop down are always skewed:

     

     

    This graphical behavior always happens no matter if I use Chrome or Mozilla. I tried to tweek some of the styles through my browser's inspector to see if I could perhaps update the CSS files on the appliance to clean it up a bit. Unfortunately I was only able to change the size of the dropdown, not the menu that pops up underneath.

     

    One thing I did learn after looking through the CSS was that this GUI appears to have been written in ExtJS. If that's the case, I'm thinking that the picker being used to show the subnet values might need to be updated to use the matchFieldWidthattribute set to false. This would allow the picker underneath to extend longer than the parent combobox. This Fiddle illustrates the difference in behavior:

     

    Sencha Fiddle

     

    Is this something that can be addressed in a future release? Thanks!

  • 10/17/18--16:54: windows 10 1809 slow
  • I downloaded the Windows 10 1809 and Server 2019 ISOs the day they became available so I can start working on my templates.

     

    I built the templates with EFI, paravirtual for the C drive and vmxnet3 adapter. I've been using this combo for other versions of windows 10/8/7and windows server 2008r2/2012r2/1016 without issue.

     

    So far Windows 2019 (with desktop experience) seems to be ok at least for a basic vm and guest customization. Haven't tried anything else yet.

     

    Windows 10 1809 on the other hand is very, very slow to reboot after the initial install or even just rebooting after making some changes post install. After installing the OS it took 10-15 minutes for the initial windows setup stuff (user, security settings, etc) to appear . I tried a VM set to BIOS and it seemed faster but was still quite slow. Server 2019 and other versions of windows 10 have no issue.

     

    The hosts are esxi 6.5 and 6.7.

     

    I haven't had a chance to try every combo of BIOS/EFI/vmxnet3/e1000e/paravirtual/lsi sas to see if one is the cause of the issue but was wondering if anyone else had noticed any issues or if it was just me?

     

    Thanks

    Exeption code 0xc000005 (access violation) has occurred.

    You can request support.

     

    Because is a free soft, they refused tecnical support.

  • 01/11/19--17:20: LinkedIn Groups
  • Hello,

     

    Every link on the https://communities.vmware.com/community/linkedin page directs me to my groups on LinkedIn and not the group I clicked on.  Are these LinkedIn groups closed (private)?  Do they no longer exist?

     

    Thanks for reading!

    Hi,

     

    I have been searching for info on my problem and can't seem to find anything.

     

    I have a XenServer Pool, Version 6.5. I am using the VMWare Standalone Converter to attempt to migrate VMs over to ESXi 6.0. The linux VMs I did worked great, no issues.

     

    The same can't be said for Windows Server 2012. The VMs migrate over but when they boot I am stuck on a couple of issues that I just can't get past:

     

    - Constant restarts and BlueScreens trying to boot. Tried Windows repair with no luck. Sometime I can get into Safe Mode without any problems but it will not boot up into regular Windows.

     

    - A BSOD caused by xen.sys that I was able to work around that then turned into no bootable drive.

     

    I have tried combination of uninstalling the Xen Tools, not uninstalling, installing the VmWare tool, not installing, tried exporting OVF/OVA files from Xen, etc. Nothing seems to work. When I try to look back and remember what I did and didn't do my head starts hurting.

     

    Getting to the point where I am almost ready give up and build the VMs from scratch in ESXi. It may take a week of 14 hours days but at least I can move on to other headaches.

     

    Any help, links, guidance would be greatly appreciated.

     

    Thanks,

  • 01/11/19--09:27: Effects of EVC mode changes
  • Hi. We had a cluster that was originally westmere cpu hosts and over time one after another they were replaced. the evc mode is westmere and we have 1 westmere host left. the rest are broadwell or skylake. Couple of questions:

     

     

    1. How do you determine what 'benefits' you're going to get by upgrading to a higher evc mode? In the gui in 6.7 at least it names the benefits but I have no idea if we'll actually use and benefit from them (see list below).

     

     

    2. it is mentioned that we may need to reboot VMs for it to take effect. If we have the buffer on the hosts, is an alternative to evacuate a host, put it in a new cluster with that new evc mode on it, migrate vms to that host and evacuate another host, and migrate, etc? is there any downside/risk to this? Does this prevent having to reboot our hundreds of VMs?

     

     

    3. what if we have a spare host that's older and we really want it to be in the cluster as a last resort spare? It may not be in the compatibility list completely but we've used it on the version it's on without issue so we're OK having it as an emergency host. Is the only way to add it to turn off EVC so it can join? Once it's off we won't be able to turn it back on at the previous level I assume.

     

     

    Thanks a bunch!

    how to get esxi server license after evaluation is  expired


    0 0

    Is there anyway to list users, create users and reset password for a user accounts in ESXi server.  I can possibly use SSH, but I am looking for any vRO vCenter object that can run commands on the ESXi host.  I think even esxcli still needs SSH to be enabled to connect to.

  • 01/11/19--06:09: Disabliing RDP
  • We only use PCOIP in our environment. I would like to disable the RDP service on all the VM's using group policy. Any side affects? Mainly doing this because security scans are complaining about self-signed certificates, hash values etc...

    I am having trouble getting outlook to work on our non-persistent VDI desktop pools. I have went through the setup for UEM and created a writable volume in App Volumes, after setting up my Outlook profile the OST file is saved to the writable volume and everything appears to be working. But, after logging out of the virtual desktop and logging back in I am forced to go through the process of setting up outlook again.

     

    I have been through all the documentation I can find on UEM 9.5 and App Volumes 2.14 with no luck.

    Hi,

     

    I have a Windows 10 with Java 8 Update 191 installed on it that when I accept a Java website it remembers the first exception, but not the second exception.

    Hello,

     

    First of all this is my first post here. I hope you guys will be able to help me out.

     

    I just started a new position at work and one of my first jobs is to investigate the poor performance we are getting out of our VMs on two ESXi 5.5 hosts.

     

    The hosts have pretty low CPU utilization, but esxtop reports very high %USED for a couple VMs. Any idea on where to start?

     

    Host CPU & RAM usage:

    esxtop results on that host:

     

     

    I'm kind of a newbie regarding best practices for VM performance so any help is greatly appreciated.

     

    Thanks!

    So ive come across a werid issue in my new test system (just a test setup, esxi 6.5u2 , host only, no vCenter):

     

    I have a 2.5" p3700 nvme disk attached to my supermicro x10 based system (its direct attached via a sm riser card= AOC-2UR8N4-i2XT , which has 4x nvme ports , which goes to a sm nvme backplane, i dont think this HW is relevant though).

     

    I had been running the system great for about 2 weeks, i had a datastore created direct on the nvme disk with several VMs running from it.

     

    Yesterday my power flickered and when it came back my nvme data store was gone, and under storage->adaptors the nvme "hba" wouldnt show up  I tried removing and reinserting the nvme disk, trying a different nvme bay, shutdown/rebooting host a few times. nothing.

     

    However, this entire time i could see the disk via gui, manage->HW->PCI devices (see image) and also via ssh LSPCI:

    0000:08:00.0 Mass storage controller: Intel Corporation DC P3700 SSD [2.5" SFF]

     

    assuming the flash was fried or something, i boot the sys into a ubuntu live CD, and under the disks utility, there is the p3700 disk, with its proper 1.6tb VMFS partition intact.

     

    I then update/patch from 6.5U2 (may2018) to 6.5u2 (latest patches ~ nov1 2018). Reboot, still no nvme show up.


    I happened to attach a random sata disk (to a MB sata port), format it as a datastore (VMFS), then reboot, and BOOM the nvme datastore is back! if i remove the sata disk, reboot (so that the nvme is the only attached disk appear to esxi), the NVMe again wont appear! 

     

    So it seems that as long as i have some kind of other disk attached, my nvme appears properly.

     

    Any ideas what this is about?

     

    thanks!

  • 01/11/19--09:42: DR Licensing
  • Hello all,

     

    I have a production site with 2 servers. They are licensed with vSphere essentials plus.
    I'm planing to create a DR site with 2 new servers and to use vSphere replication to keep the DR

    site synced with the production one.

     

    The DR site will not be use for anything but DR.

     

    Do I need to buy an additional vSphere essentials plus license or may I use the one I already have?

     

    Thanks in advance,

    Ron.

    As you can see, it doesn't really work. You might think that's because pretty much everything is at zero, but if I manage to display much more lines in my terminal output by reducing character size, I find some stuff way down :

    So I have two questions :

     

    - Why can't we sort when inside a world in esxtop ?

    - What is OCFlush and why it would be taking so much CPU while no VMs are running ?

     

    Why does it matter? This is actually a home lab, and ESX is running on a spare MacBook Pro, bottomline is the fans are making too much noise and I want to fix this!

     

    ESX 6.7.0 (Build 8169922)

    Hi all

     

    Please kindly help me to resolve my issue with Horizon View. I setup Vmware Horizon View 7.1 and i created a manual pool. But when i tried to connect on my VM in my Vmware infrastructure since my horizon client, i get this error " Unable to start from the pool for user '$myuser ': all responsive machines are in use. When i check events on Horizon view i see that "all the reactive machines are occupied".

     

    Since i try solve it but i can not. I'm new on Horizon view

    I previously created a VM that used an entire physical disk (taken from an old computer). This was created in Workstation Pro 12.

    I had not accessed the VM for a while, and had since upgraded to Workstation 14.

    Now when I attempt to start the VM, if get an error message "The operation on file "\\.\PhysicalDrive3" failed."

     

    Investigating further, I found the same problem with creating a fresh VM using a physical drive.

    I have also confirmed that error occurs before the virtual  machine's BIOS screen is shown. The log files in the virtual machine folder do not shed any light beyond repeating the error dialog.

    Reverting back to 12 did not change the outcome.

    When attempting to start the VM, (as expected) I am prompted for admin permissions.  I have also tried running Worksation with admin rights. This did not change the outcome.

    I have checked the the disk (attached via a USB caddy) is visible in Disk Manager, and that there are no mapped drives on any of the partitions in that drive.

     

    So, I am presuming that some recent (as in last year) Windows 10 updates may be the cause of the problem.

     

    I have searched for people with similar problems, but have not found anything relating to Windows 10 or Workstation 14.

     

    Does anybody have any ideas where I should be looking? 

     

    Thanks,

     

    Theo

    Hi,

     

    I have an host based on ESXi 4.1 but my evaluation mode has expired. Unfortunately when I "Access your VMware vSphere Hypervisor license and download" from the email (Access your VMware ESXi 4.1 License) that I have received, are redirected in "VMware ESXi Hypervisor 6.0 license and download" page. It Seems That You can not download a free license key for ESXi 4.1 .... The same happens when I click on the link "View licenses and downloads" from "My Download History" in "VMware vSphere Hypervisor License 4.x". How can I do? Please, my customer is very angry Because your virtual machines are in "power off" and when to I "power on" it, visualize the "Your license has expired" message ..... I need your urgent help. Sorry forthe ignorance and my english (I am italian)

    Thank you in advance
