    I'm wondering if anyone has seen odd behavior with rest operations that pass in larger documents as the data for the request.  I've got some calls I'm making that seem to fail once I get past a certain sized document.  If its not the size maybe some sort of serialization issue?  It sure seems like size.  As soon as I submit a post of more than 1993 characters I hit issues.  The error I get back from the api I am interacting with is that it is receiving a zero length object.  Maybe I'm hitting some limitation somewhere of 2048 characters like the total request size including headers or total url length?

  • 01/15/19--08:46: Com port issue
  • I'm throwing this question at the board to see if anyone know how to get this to work.


    Here is my situation/configuration:

    I'm working on an old controller (not a PC) that is from about 1997.  Originally, this device would be programmed using a PC connected through a special proprietary com cable that installed on the Win 95 PC with a win 95 driver to the com port.  This device would then show as a com port on the Win 95 PC and allow connections to the device.


    I need to work on this machine - I have a newer proprietary cable with Windows 7/64 (usb)drivers.  It connects to my host PC as COM15.


    I have a Win 95 VM with the software needed to edit the controller's program.

    The cable is connected to the host (win 95 doesn't have a USB driver for this) at com 15.

    I want to connect the com port in the VM to my host com 15.  If I try to add a com port to my VM, it only shows "available" com ports; COM1 and COM14.


    How do I connect my VM com port to my host com 15?


    Thanks in advance!

    I have an ESXi 6.7 server where I pass through the onboard SATA controller with 6 disks to a FreeNAS VM. It was working great for months until one day it froze and I had to do a hard restart and the SATA card hanged ID numbers and the passthrough was disabled and the server identified all the attached disks. I fixed the passthrough to the VM but only 4 disks are being passed through a 2 disks are still showing in the storage section of the ESXi server. Any idea to force the server to forget they exist and pass on to the VM?

    Is it possible to move edge gateways from one vDC to another vDC if they are backed by different vCenter Servers, but same instance of vCloud Director?

    If not, is it possible to download and restore edge gateway configs so that I don't need to recreate all rules again?

    Does VM Fusion Version 8.5.10 (7527438) work with MacOS Mojave 10.14.2. ?

    (German versions)


    Today I updated Mac with Mojave.

    But now VW Fusion seems to work (it opens, and features are available)

    BUT my Windows 10 does not open.

    If VM Fusion 8.5.10 doesn't NOT work with MacMojave, which error message would I get?


    Thanks in advance

    Hi Guys,


    I got a Skyline appliance 1.4.0 Build 9405761. It was working perfectly and suddenly stopped working for no reason. Checking the booting process I can see the following:


    I tried the following with no luck


    Hit SHIFT+UP or SHIFT+PGUP in the console and you'll see that a device needs to be checked for errors. Put your skyline root password in and then type "fsck -y /dev/log_vg/log" and it'll do a file system check.  After that, just reboot the appliance and you'll be back up.  If you're not, check the output again for any other mounts that need to be checked and perform the same.


    Any idea will be highly appreciated.

    Hi, I am trying to restart the vCenter Web Client service and noticed that the options are grayed out. vCenter6.5  is installed on Windows 2012R2.

    I am seeing some strange behavior with the latest 4.10 client.


    If I try and start the usbarbitrator service during init, it will segfault.

    A subsequent run will successfully start.

    If I don't try during init, and just manually kick off the service after boot finishes, it also works

    It only seg faults if I try during init.


    This is different behavior than 4.9, which always worked.

    I am trying to get Windows 10 Pro N working on our VMware instance however am having a few issues with disk usage throttling at "100%" (~2.5MB/s - ~5MB/s) with barely anything running.


    The "top" usage of disk usage according to Task Manager is usually "System" and when opening file location, it points to ntoskrnl.exe.


    Things I've tried:


    Details of our VMware instance:

    • Hypervisor: VMware ESXI 6.5 5310538
    • Model: PowerEdge R730
    • Proc Type: Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2667 v4 @ 3.20GHz


    I'm not really sure how else to proceed to fix this issue. Would upgrading to ESXI 6.7 help?


    NB, I do not have any issues with using Windows 7, only Windows 10 it seems.

    I see this KB


    In my case i use LACP. In KB 1003490 i see this:

    • If LACP is enabled and configured, do not restart management services using command. Instead restart independent services using the /etc/init.d/module restart command.


    I use " restart" command on this host and on others hosts, Other hosts are ok, but this host are gone crazy)

    Ony ideas?

    P.S. i cant reboot host.

    We have ESXi running.  I wanted to move the VM with the original snapshots to a new server.  Without VCenter it looks like the only way is to scp the entire directory to the new server.   I did this for 4 servers.  one works great.   The other 3 allow me to create snapshots, but does not allow me to remove any snapshots.  I keep getting "This locked snapshot cannot be deleted.".


    I searched some posts/questions and nothing has really helped.  Not sure what to do really.  I guess I could try fully removing the servers and copying them again.   I didn't want to do this if I didn't have to.


    Thanks in advance for any help.

    This is a home lab so the setup is pretty simple.

    HPDL360 Gen 7 server

    Gigabit switch

    Cheap NAS device.


    When I migrate a guest off the local disk or clone to the NFS device traffic is extremely slow (5k kB/sec). If I scp the guests over I get expected throughput (90k kB/sec). And if I migrate back from the NFS device to the local disk I get "better" throughput (60k kB/sec). The only time I get extremely poor performance is using storageVmotion or when cloning to the NFS device. I just don't understand why I am getting such poor performance in these cases. Any thoughts?

    I am getting errors re mediating profiles stating the "option.option has been changed from its expected default value".   But there is no "option.option" in the settings.  My workaround is to just take a profile from a host that already has this error and apply it to the other hosts in the cluster.


    Thanks for the help.

    I'm designing a kiosk app which can let users build blueprints.  I cannot find the API which can retrieve a list of VM templates in the repository.  Specifically, is there a REST API to replicate this feature in vRA?  Or do I need to use vSphere API to retrieve that level of information?

    Hi, I just migrated our vRo 7.4 to a 7.5 and I've run into an issue where workflow.changeCredential no longer seems to work any more.


    From the client I get this error:

    Workflow execution stack:


    item: 'CC Test/item1', state: 'failed', business state: '', exception: 'null'

    workflow: 'CC Test' (98d1aee9-1485-47ba-9469-a1df64dedaf7)

    |  'no inputs'

    |  'no outputs'

    |  'no attributes'

    *** End of execution stack.


    I've attached the server errors I get when running the workflow (not sure exactly what is not authorized).


    The workflow I have made up just has a Scriptable task with this code in it below:

    var cred = System.getModule("com.plex.common").getConfigurationValue(null, "Credentials", "provisionWorkflowRunAs");


    The credential object is properly populated with a username and password and I've tried to make a credential object as a general attribute instead of pulling from the configuration variables and it produces that same results.  It seems to just be this function that has an issue with the credentials, because I've tested the method Server.isValidLdapCredential with the same credentials passed to it and it works just fine.


    Not sure what I'm missing, hoping someone can help.

    Stage 1 got stuck at 99% and failed to complete verification (this is probably because I need to open access to the new temporary VCSA IP/port).


    However when I consoled to the new VCSA VM I noticed that the IP is correct but the hostname is photon (do not have the full name but definitely had photon, I expected this to be the Temporary system name I set during the setup), any idea if this is something to worry about or if this will be corrected when it does the config sync in Stage 2?


    I will also need to connect the new VCSA to the non-ephemeral distributed virtual port group, not sure if I can to this prior Stage 2 from the new VCSA VM properties?


    Can I check if the VCSA root password is expired? (Heard that some VCSA upgrades fail because of this reason but error might not be indicative)

    Does VM Fusion Version 8.5.10 (7527438) work with MacOS Mojave 10.14.2. ?  (German versions)  

    Today I updated Mac with Mojave.

    But now VW Fusion seems to work (it opens, and features are available)

    BUT my Windows 10 does not open. (also today, there was an windows10 update).

    If VM Fusion 8.5.10 doesn't NOT work with MacMojave, which error message would I get?     Thanks in advance

    We have a request from the business to alias the vRA login portal URLs they put in the browser from the standard      https://<vip appliance fqdn>/shell-ui-app/org/<tenant>/      to just <tenant name>

    As there are multiple tenants we can't do a simple DNS alias. Reading other posts the appliance VIP in the certificates would need changing. Also I think the VIP appliance fqdn from the URL is used as embedded on the appliance as a install parameter, so that might give a problem. Architecture is  vRA 7.3 distributed model with separate appliance VIP, IAAS VIP and IAAS web VIP.

    Users keep bookmarking the portal login page with the security info listed hence the bookmarks can't be re-used.


    Has anyone found a way of doing shortened portal URLs or friendly names?

  • 01/15/19--06:41: migrate vm from vds to vss
  • Hello,

    Need help for this script.

    I have to migrate a lot of VMs from vDS to vSS.

    I'm using the following script which does not work.

    When starting the script vCenter logon is ok, but then the script do nothing.

    No errors



    $cred = Get-VICredentialStoreItem -File "D:\Scripts\Credentials\credentials.xml"

    Connect-VIServer -server $ -User $cred.User -Password $cred.Password


    # Read Input File

    $InputFile = Import-CSV "D:\Scripts\NETWORK\ARS-OFM.csv" -Delimiter ';'


    # Parse the input file

        $Clustername = $Network .CLUSTER

        $vSwitchname = $Network .VSS

        $NEWVLANname = $Network .VSSPG

        $OLDVLANname = $Network .VDSPG

        $VLAN = $Network .VLAN

    Hi Everybody !


    I know that we have many threads on the error 503 for the vCenter but I can not find a solution for my issue.

    When I start the vCenter, I have the classic error "503 Service Unavailable...\wmware-vpxd-webserver-pipe)"


    When I run the command "service-control --start --all", but all services do not start.

    In logs, I have :

    I'm on this link: VMware vCenter Converter: P2V Virtual Machine Converter

    The claim is: "VMware vCenter Converter transforms your Windows- and Linux-based physical machines and third-party image formats to VMware virtual machines."


    Great, I need to turn a linux (Ubuntu) instance into a VM.


    Click on "Download Now" and it goes here:…


    Click on "Go to Downloads" and we get something that's windows only.

         The other versions of this product are also windows only.


    What am I missing?  Do I need to run this on wine?  Is this not actually working for Linux?


    Thank you,

    I installed VMware-VMvisor-Installer-6.7.0-8169922.x86_64 and deployed a VM installed. I wanted to edit the CPU and Memory allocation but it seems the Edit tab and other tab (as you can see in the circle) in the top menu tool bar is greyed out. The greyed out appeared after I added the VMware vSphere Hypervisor 6 License.  I am wondering if I missed something. Trying Power off first but it is also greyed out, as you can see

    . Please advice.

    I used some of LucD's great posts to draft the following script, but the one thing I can't figure out how to do is to calculate a VM's Subnetwork address from it's IP address and Subnet Mask.

    I know that you can use -band to apply binary calculations to values, but I don't know how to write the calculation part into the Select statement:


    e.g. @{N='SubnetworkAddress';E={$IPAddress -band $SubnetMask}



    Here's what I have so far:



    &{foreach($vm in (Get-Cluster MyCluster | Get-VM)) {

        $vm.ExtensionData.Guest.Net | select -Property @{N='VM';E={$vm.Name}},


        @{N='IP';E={[string]::Join(',',($vm.Guest.IPAddress | Where {($_.Split(".")).length -eq 4}))}},

        @{N='Subnet Mask';E={

            $dec = [Convert]::ToUInt32($(('1' * $_.IpConfig.IpAddress[0].PrefixLength).PadRight(32, '0')), 2)

                $DottedIP = $( For ($i = 3; $i -gt -1; $i--) {

                    $Remainder = $dec % [Math]::Pow(256, $i)

                    (                        $dec - $Remainder) / [Math]::Pow(256, $i)

                        $dec = $Remainder



                [String]::Join('.', $DottedIP)


        @{N='Gateway';E={[string]::Join(',',($vm.ExtensionData.Guest.IpStack.IpRouteConfig.IpRoute | %{if($_.Gateway.IpAddress){$_.Gateway.IpAddress}}))}},

    Hello Community, I am as new as new can be to vRealize Orchestrator. I am trying to pull the name of the physical host that a VM is hosted on. I have searched the googles and I can't find the property. If anyone can offer any assistance on this I would greatly appreciate it.

    I'm trying to use the VcenterVStorageObjectManager ExtendDisk_Task operation to extend a virtual machine's virtual disk to 30GB, but for the VirtualDisk device it seems that the VDiskId property is always returned as null no matter which VM or disk try it on. I'm not sure why that is, we are running 6.5 on all hosts and VCSA and all VMs are VM version 13. The code seems pretty straightforward if I could figure out why VDiskId doesn't seem to be populating. Does anyone have any ideas? Useful information on using the virtual disk manager seems pretty scarce from what I can find searching


    VcenterVStorageObjectManager vDiskMan = (VcenterVStorageObjectManager)vimClient.GetView(vimClient.ServiceContent.VStorageObjectManager, null);
    VirtualDevice[] devices = vm.Config.Hardware.Device;
    VirtualDisk vd = null;                
    foreach (VirtualDevice device in devices)
    {     device.DeviceInfo.Label.Equals("Hard disk 1"))     {          vd = (VirtualDisk)device;          VirtualDiskFlatVer2BackingInfo backInfo = (VirtualDiskFlatVer2BackingInfo)vd.Backing;          //vd.VDiskId always reports null          vDiskMan.ExtendDisk_Task(vd.VDiskId, backInfo.Datastore, 30720);     }

    Trying to convert a Windows 7 box to vm.  Getting "Unable to find the system volume, reconfiguration is not possible." error at 98%.  I've tried booting to Windows recovery (windows 10.  Does that matter?) startup repair + bootrec etc to no avail.  Always ends with BSOD after windows splash screen.  I believe its an issue with the small boot volume.


    Can someone have a look at the log and point me in the right direction?


    Thank you in advance.

    I am running VMWare Fusion 11.0.2, and am trying to connect a new USB hard drive to one of my virtual machines.  When I tell the drive to connect to the desired virtual machine, it disappears from the host computer's desktop, but never appears in the virtual machine.  When I check Disk Utility on both the host computer and the virtual machine, the drive does not appear in either.  Then only thing I can do is to tell it to disconnect from the virtual machine, at which point it reappears in the host computer.


    I have restarted the host computer, the virtual machine, and powered off and back on the USB drive.  Another USB drive that I have assigned to that virtual machine mounts just fine.  It's just this new one that doesn't.  Any ideas for getting this drive to mount in the virtual machine would be appreciated.

    We are running vRops 7.0, vCloud Director 9.1 and Tenant App for vCloud Director 2.1.

    We want to customize the Dashboard/View which is presented to our customers or perhaps delete some of the things which is visible to our customers - like "Billing".

    Does anybody know if that's possible ???

    Everybody that I have asked, told me that it's not possible

    I have made quite long google search but have not found that command. For Hyper-V there is Set-VMSecurity. Is there something similar for vSphere?

    Main goal is to deploy new VM from command line with VBS turned on.

    My new project is converting our physical Exchange DAG servers with mailboxes servers to VM on ESXI hosts. am looking for some Best Practices to watch out for. I will be using the VMware Converter Standalone to perform the conversion. but what is the best way, step-by-step, to do this? Should I use the "Synchronize" function in the converter? Do I need to convert each server with stopping services Or can I simply convert them online

    I'm developing a H5 plugin and try to add a action to the "ACTIONS" dropdown list when user select a host. The issue is when the modal dialog open the actionUrl, it only passes locale, objectId is missing, i pasted the sample definition FYI.

    But if i use   com.vmware.vsphere.client.htmlbridge.HtmlActionDelegate instead of com.vmware.vsphere.client.HtmlPluginModalAction, it works and passes both locale and objectId.

    I reproduced it with both vSphere 6.5U2 and 6.7U1, Is it a defect of com.vmware.vsphere.client.HtmlPluginModalAction ? Tks.

  • 01/16/19--00:28: UEM - Printers
  • I'm currently looking to move away from having printers installed by .bat or GPO and have been playing with UEM.


    I can get the printers to install based on client IP without any difficulty, but is there a way for the printers to be removed also?


    E.g user logs in on and receives PRINTER1

    user reconnected on and receives PRINTER2, whilst also having PRINTER1 removed from their Devices and Printers.

    ....with Condition setting "member of group"  'domain\xyz'


    my old way over SCCM:


    cmd.exe /c certutil.exe -f -addstore "root" "\\server\folder\cert1a.p7b"

    cmd.exe /c certutil.exe -f -addstore "trustedpublisher" "\\server\folder\cert1a.p7b"


    We need this for the application "Passwordsafe" for over 150 user on different clients, not every time the same clients because the user is moving.

    Dans VMware Workstation, il est possible de partagée de VM (Shared VMs) et donc de se connecter dessus via l'option "Connect to server" présente également dans VMware Workstation.


    Question : Est-il possible de partager une VM hébergé sur un ESX et intégré dans Vsphere pour pouvoir se connecter dessus de la même façon que si elle était sur Workstation ?


    Existe-il une option dans Vsphere capable de rendre la VM partagée ?


    Merci d'avance

    I am admittedly very rusty with Vmware administration, so I figured I would bounce this off you all;


    I have 6 hosts running 5.5 and a Windows 2008 R2 guest with vCenter 5.5 managing it. I am (finally) upgrading the hosts - the goal is to replace the 6 hosts with 4. This is all fine, but I think I want to move vCenter from a Windows guest to a VCSA, and get us up to 6.5 in the process. I think this will allow me to get vCenter updated, and then let me phase out the old 5.5 hosts, and replace them with the new 6.5 hosts one by one.


    My questions are;

    1. Has anyone had any issues with moving from Windows based vCenter 5.5 to VCSA 6.5 using the wizard / migration tool? It seems so simple, I just haven't had the opportunity to play in a lab at all.

    2. I would really like to get the vCenter server and esxi host's management network interfaces onto a different subnet. Right now, they are on the same subnet as our "production" network with the majority of servers and client machines. I am not quite sure how to implement this transition... has anyone done something similar? Is it feasible to have a vCenter server manage esxi hosts in two different subnets?


    TIA -

  • 01/15/19--06:52: vmotion 21%
  • Dear all,


    we have 2 serperate vm enviroments, and we try to migrate hosts with vm`s from the old 6.0 enviroment to the new 6.7 enviroment.

    this works , i remove a host ( with running vm`s ) from the old 6.0 and add it to the 6.7 enviroment.


    when i try to migrate ( vmotion ) in the new enviroment from one host to the other host, vmotion fails at 21%


    the only way it works is to shut down the vm and then migrate, this works.

    only we would like to keep the vm`s running, is there a option to keep the vm`s running and migrate ( vmotion )


    the old host is 6.0 and the new is 6.7 ESXI


    thanks for all your reply


    best regards

    Hi everyone


    I'm trying to create a Rule via the API. According to the documentation, the body needs to be provided as follows:


    <rule xmlns=""><vcServerId>1</vcServerId><customerName>CustomerTest</customerName><objectType>VM</objectType><valueType>Unique ID</valueType><value>vm-21</value></rule>


    This works fine for rules with valuetype "Unique ID". But i need to create a rule with the valuetype Substring and I cannot figure out, how I need to provide the body. If I send it according to the documentation i get the response that rules with valueType Substring mustn't provide a vCenter ID. If I send the body without the vcServerID Element i get the response that this is a mandatory element. If I leave it blank I get a parsing error back. Can anyone point me in the right direction? We use version 3.6.1.
