    Hey there,

     

    I was wondering if you could help me clarify the following question:

    What is the difference between a user directly placed in a OU rather than having this user being part of a user group in the exact same OU?

     

    For clarification:

    For my UEM test I have created a OU called Horizon.

    Within that OU I placed my RDS Hosts as Computer Objects and a bunch of test user acocunts.

    Result: they all work fine. User information is logged as specified in the "FlexEngine logging" GPO in my UEM user share as expected.

     

    Now it comes to managing real world users but they exists in other OUs already.

    To come by this issue within this newly created OU Horizon I created a user group and added the existing accounts.

    Result: they all are able to log in but policies are not applied and no user folder is created in the UEM user share and thus also no logging is done nowhere.

     

    What options do I have to work with people that already exist in other OUs but need the UEM functionality nonetheless so have my UEM restrictions/settings applied to users in a user group rather than users directly in that OU?

     

    I have loooots of questions marks above my head right now -- hopefully you will be able to help me.

    If anthing is not clear please ask and I'll try to specify in more detail.

     

    Thanks a lot in advance!

    I have a home lab and do some testing for Oracle DBs to help me learn.  I have ESXi 6.5 installed and I want to enable the multi-writer capability.  I read I need to run this command.

     

    esxcli system settings advanced list -o /VMFS3/GBLAllowwMW

     

    I did but got no response so I looked up to see if this was an option and it returned no.  Can I do this with the free version of ESXi?  If so how can I do this?  Thanks

    This has been happening for a while, but I think I am just done with dealing with this. Every few days, my two VMs on Workstation 15.0.2, with host running latest Windows 10, VMs both running Windows Server 2008 R2, go black. It is about every few days, usually overnight. I cannot shut them down, they just say it is busy, and the VMware VMX processes won't end in Task Manager, because "Access Denied". I have to restart my host every time, then start the VMs back up.

     

    The logs give a curious error: "E1000: E1000 rx ring full, drain packets.". I found a solution to go in the network adapter in Device Manager while in the Guest VM, and increase the Receive and Transmit Buffers to 512. The Transmit was already there, so I increased the Receive from 256 to 512. It still happened.

     

    So I tried it on the host machine too, and it STILL happened.

     

    VMware Tools seem to be up to date on both VMs, and VMware is too. Please, somebody, tell me how to fix this.

     

    Here is the contents of one of the VMs' log from when it starts (the other VM's log is the same):

    Hi,

     

    My home lab host was running ESXi 5.5 for almost 6 years without any crash. No hardware was changed, only the location in August 2018. A couple of weeks ago I noticed that the host is rebooting regularly. Initially I thought it had something to do with an IPv6 roll out on the location, which was known to be buggy in the version I was running. After first disabling IPv6, I eventually updated to ESXi 6.5. The host is still crashing as you can see from the Xorg.log below. By reading the network switch log, I can tell that the host sometimes crashes multiple times before completing the reboot.

    The crashes appear like if you just unplug the power cable. There is no purple screen, no dump files and in none of the logs I can find hints of what happened prior to the reboot.

     

    In vmkernel.log I noticed a few memory corrections so to be sure, I ran memtest86 for 72 hours. No errors found.

     

    The server has a redundant power supply. Currently I have disabled one module to see if it makes a difference. after 24 hours I will swap to the other module. It's a shot in the dark, specially since the memtest could run for 72 hours. Other than this I am running out of idea's. Although I can remove some non essential hardware from the host like a GFX card and 2nd storage controller. But I would expect log entries when those are failing.

     

    Any input will be very much appreciated. Perhaps there are other logs that I am missing which contain info. Or can I enable more advanced logging?

     

    Thanks,

    Robbert

  • 01/12/19--10:07: ISO Windows 10 1809
  • Ciao,

    Ho la ISO di Windows 10 versione 1809, come posso creare un template ( versione 6.5 ) per creare delle VM di Windows 10 1809?

    Purtroppo ho poca esperienza e mi servirebbe una guida passo-passo, magari con immagini, anche in inglese..

     

    grazie

    After upgrading to 4.10 I've had audio dropout issues with Skype.

     

    The audio for the whole VDI drops out, meaning I can't listen to a youtube video even until I've reconnected the desktop. It'll work fine for a few minutes and then it's just silence again. Windows audio doesn't show muted or anything.

     

    This seems to only happen during Skype calls/meetings.

     

    Not sure whats going on, but its really frustrating.

     

    I'm going to try and go back to 4.9. Just wondered if anyone else was seeing the same problem.

     

    Thanks.

    The computer just crashes wish the Green Screen of Death showing the error KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE anytime I try to run a Virtual Machine, no matter which guest operating system I try to run.

     

    Same problem with VMWare Workstation 14 and 15.

    Hi There,

     

    I'm I've been using Powershell more and more lately and at my current job they've PowerCLI available, oh boy!
    I've been busy with creating a script over the weekend that works with a menu, which my fellow sys-admins can use to snapshot their VMs.

    I've been having a certain issue, but I don't now what I’m doing wrong. I hope someone can help me or tell me what I’m doing wrong.


    The function can read a .csv with some server names and it does correctly make a snapshot with the given
    name. But now I want to give me feedback on what he just did. I want feedback on what machines just received a snapshot. I've been using multiple commands, but nothing seems to work. Whenever I run the function it just doesn’t output anything, not even an error.
    Whenever I run it in the shell it self with out using any function :  get-vm | Get-Snapshot | select VM
    , Created, Description, SizeGB | sort Created | ft -au I’ll get the result I want it shows me the latest snapshots I just created.


    vmware.csv content:

     

    Name

    S-test01

    S-test02

    S-test03


    Earlier defined variables:

    $svice03 = "s-vice03.test.int"

    $serversvice3= Import-Csv "C:\temp\vmware.csv"

     

    This is the function:


    function vmsnapvice03
    {

         Connect-viserver $svice03

         cls

         write-host "Connected to the S-Vice03"

         $serversvice3 | %{Get-VM $_.Name | New-Snapshot -Name "Pre-Patching" -Description "Before Patching" -Quiesce:$false -Confirm:$false}

         sleep 5 

         get-vm | Get-Snapshot | select VM, Created, Description, SizeGB | sort Created| ft -au
    #write-host "Created snapshot for " $serversvice3            

    }

     

    I've been also trying to use:

     

    write-host "Created a snapshot for " $serversvice3

     

    Which works but it print it out in a ugly format: Created snapshot for @ {name=s-Apps-18} , If I could make this just s-Apps18 I would be happy. But then again, what am I doing wrong in the function that it doesn’t work with get-vm.

    Additional information, we're using PowerCLI 6.5 release 1 build 4624819

    Thanks for reading and thinking with me.

    I just updated VMWare Horizon client for version 4.10.0 on my Windows 10 machine.  Now when I try to connect to my remote desktop, it disconnects my PC's wifi and drops the connection immediately.  If there are any errors messages, the are too fast for me to see.  Any ideas why this will not allow me to connect?

    On VMWare Fusion 11.0.2, I recently created a Mojave VM from the installer that was downloaded on my Mac host (Install macOS Mojave.app).  When I run Chrome on the VM, every tab constantly refreshes, to the point where it can take several minutes to type into any form on the page.  Even on the chrome://settings page, the screen constantly reloads and makes it difficult to perform any actions.  This is especially noticeable on Gmail login.

     

    The Mojave VM has 4 GB RAM and 2 cores assigned.  When the flickering is occuring, the VM still has at least 1.5 GB available to it with a CPU load of ~60% User, and 14% system.  The Mac host still has 3 GB available,with a CPU load of 6% User, 23% System, so the host is not straining to run the VM.

     

    VM: Mojave (10.14.2)

            Chrome (Version 71.0.3578.98 (Official Build) (64-bit))

  • 01/09/19--19:11: Using Nginx with Vsphere
  • Hi experts,

     

    I have 2 vsphere 6.5.0 hosts, eg 10.1.1.1 & 10.1.1.2

     

    Now, I need to access the vsphere hosts via sub-url. eg:

    1. https://lab.domain.com/vm1 -----> 10.1.1.1

    2. https://lab.domain.com/vm2 -----> 10.1.1.2

     

    Plz note that:
    1. I have no vCenter servers and not plan to purchase it since we are a running small business

    2. Due to some limtation, I don't have multiple domains (even have no sub-domains). In this case, I have to use sub-url to identify different vsphere hosts

     

    Thanks in advance

    I sold my client a 5 host ESX 6.0 u2 with vSAN 6.0 in early 2016. Late last year we upgraded to ESX 6.5 u2...but since VMware technical support had no idea how long a block-by-block vSAN 6.0 to vSAN 6.6 upgrade would take my client has left it running vSAN 6.0. I certainly can’t blame them...and I would never sell hybrid vSAN again even if my life depended on it.  It complicates EVERYTHING. Want to put a host running hybrid vSAN in miantenance mode? You’d better carefully plan that out and expect it to take 4+ hours.

     

    Anyway, enough venting. I want to create the (2) L3 VPNs between thier production cluster and a new on-demand 3-host VMware Cloud then live migrate their workloads over to AWS.  Then run the (long overdue) vSAN 6.6 on-disk upgrade on their production cluster. My question is

     

    1. Am I forgetting something.

    2. They don’t have NSX on their production cluster but I’m planning on selling them NSX Entrrprise Plus SPLA licenses (~$20/month/per protected VM) Prior to the live migration since NSX is running on AWS.  Any advice?

    3.  Windows licensing & Trend Micro Deep Security licensing & Veeam licensing.  I sold this client Windows datacenter licensing with Software Assurance, trend ds licensing and you guessed it Veeam licenseing.  Since I don’t intend to instantiate new Windows guests while in the AWS environment I’m betting/hoping it is kosher to run these properly licensed Windows workloads in AWS. I’m not even going to try to migrate the Trend licenses - we‘ll have to roll the dice on viruses.  Which leaves Veeam...which again cant migrate the licenses.  So my plan is to create AWS snapshots regularly and then a fresh full Veeam backup the minute a server is live migrated back.  Please don’t be shy in telling my plan sucks. 

    4.  Uhm...did I mention that my client has a mission critical ~12TB VM fileserver? Well they do.  If I could devote a 500Mbps circuit to it alone that would take 50 hours. They have ESX 6.5 which the FAQ said is all that is required for live migration. Question: has anyone live migrated such an enormous VM? Can anyone confirm that it would be available on-prem after triggering the vMotion to AWS but before the vMotion completed and vice verse be available in AWS after triggering the return vMotion?  Anyone think this part of my plan sucks?  If so, what would you do?

     

    Thank you.

    Hi Y'all,

     

    I'd like to know which would be the best way to allocate the processor resource for VMs. I've got Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows 10 64 bit, Windows 7 64 bit and Windows XP Professional 32 bit in my VMware Workstation Pro. The Host processor is an Intel Core i5-8250U Processor with 12Gb RAM. Advice on RAM allocation for each VM would be nice.

     

    Thanks

    I followed this VMware guide for optimizing Windows images:

    Creating an Optimized Windows Image for a VMware Horizon Virtual Desktop | VMware

    Everything seemed to be working fine with  until I created a new user profile. The first thing I noticed was that the task bar search quit working. Then I went into Settings - Update and Security, and none of those links worked so I could not run troubleshooter, or anything else for that matter. Who knows what else might be broken.

    If I log back into the VM with the original Administrator account, everything still works fine. This makes the image useless for me, after spending most of the day building it. It is a Golden Image for linked clones.

     

    Anyone have an idea about what might be causing the new user profiles to be broken? By the way I did not activate a mandatory profile since we are going to use Persona.

    Thanks,

    Barry

  • 01/12/19--14:22: Which New iMac to Buy?
  • Okay, I've been running a 2009 iMac with El Capitan OS X 10.11.6 and Wndows 8 with VMFusion Ware 7.1. There is a 3.06GHz processor and 4MB memory.

     

    As you know, Apple won't support this Mac or upgrade its OS. Windows and VMFusionWare run like like a dog much of the time (especially in the firs 30 or 40 minutes after boot up). Anyway, I have to buy a new iMac. Can I go low with a 2.3GHz processor with 8MB Ram? Or do I go high with 3.0 or 3.4 GHz and 16MB memory. I only run one QB client on Windows. I know more is better but since its just one client on QB...

     

    Thanks,
