Hi,

We current have a VMware 6.5 using a Dell Equalogic PS6000 SAN as the backend storage. Unfrotunatley we have two datastores that have extents that cover two physicaldevices, so I plan on vmotioning the vms off the datastore, delete and the recreate the datastore without the extent on the other storage device. On the SAN the storage is split into several volumes used for storage. When I have tested, I have deleted and recreated the datastore fine no problems, but on the volume on the SAN any used space within the new datastore has simply been added to the in se space on the volume. The SAN has no idea that the datatstore has been recreated (I assumed that the new datatstore would be able to use upto the in use space the volume thought it had before growing the volume). I'm guessing that my only option is to vmotion the vm's onto another datastore. Delete the datatstore and back end volume on the san. Recreate the volume on the san and then the datastore and then move the vms back?

Cheers,
Paul

We have a DELL MD3000i array with dual-controllers (A/A). Last week, one of the controllers went bad due to memory parity error (or aka. Memory Consistency Error) and we took a huge performance hit. We ordered a replacement and swapped it out, the error was still there.  We thought we may have received a defective part, so we got another controller, but the error doesn't go away. We took out the battery and memory from the controller, waited 2 mins, then popped it back in, but still no luck. Does any one know how to correct this issue? Does something else needs to be done beside putting the controller in offline mode before swapping?

I have plugged in this dell dual pcie nic card ( Link ) into port 0 of my pcie slot on my HP Z800 Workstation and it is now beeping 5 times when i start the server and it also shows the following during boot:

207-incompatible DIMMS Detect
       slot CPU0 DIMMS
203-Memory module failed self-test and failing rank was disabled
       slot CPU0 DIMMS
207-incompatible DIMMS Detect
       slot CPU1 DIMMS
203-Memory module failed self-test and failing rank was disabled
       slot CPU1 DIMMS


When i allow the workstation to load it states that it is only using 8 GB out of the 12 GB that is actually installed on the Workstation

When i remove this PCIE card the workstation will load without any beeping or reported errors as above and will show it is using all 12 GB of memory installed!

Any ideas how to resolve this?

Device ManagerHi,

 I have a DELL Latitude E5570 laptop. It had Windows 7 and I upgraded it to Windows 10 today, but the problem is that the LCD screen display nothing when it boots.
 I can see DELL logo and Windows 10 Log (4 small squares), but I don't see the logon screen.
 However I can connect to that computer remotely using Spalshtop software or Remote Desktop program.
 in Device manager, there are yellow marks on Video Drivers. I downloaded latest video drivers and chipset program and installed them all, but I can't get rid of these yellow marks.
 When I connect the laptop to an external monitor using HDMI cable, nothing is displayed on the external monitor.
 Can you help?

Hi All,

We currently run VMware at two sites. Both sites use Dell SANS for storage. We have a few production vms that are managed from site 1 but the datastore is on site 2. The naming of the datastore to SAN volume do not match for many of the datastores. What is the easiest method to marry a VM datastore to its volume counterpart on the SAN?

Cheers,
Paul

Hi, we have just had Avaya IP Office and Voicemail Pro installed on a Hyper-V Virtual Server (A Dell Poweredge R7040 with 32GB RAM Intel Xeon Silver 4109T 2Ghz (2 Processors). The Avaya virtual server has been running fine since Christmas but over Easter it crashed. The telecoms guys that support it say that for 1-100 users it should be at least a 4 Ghz Processor (we have 75 users) and 2-3 cores.

Now, I can shut it down tonight and give it an extra processor, but would we really need to upgrade the processors to faster ones? It's a fairly new server and I thought that the Xeon Silver 4109T although low Ghz are pretty good? Thanks for the help.

Dell N3048P's switch connected route disappears and re-appears, causing intermittent issue.


 * Indicates the best (lowest metric) route for the subnet.

Default Gateway is x.x.x.x
S      *0.0.0.0/0 [1/0] via x.x.x.x,   21h:51m:28s,  Vl100
C      *x.x.x.0/24 [0/0] directly connected,   Vl100  -----------> this disappears and re-appears every minutes or so. When it disappears, it can't talk to certain resources.

I checked the switch and uplink ports and don't see any errors or misconfiguration.  Nothing int he log too.

thx!

Good Dell shared storage?

I have four hosts that need shared storage between them.  All the hosts are Dell so I prefer Dell storage.   Entry level...say 30TB at the most using some existing 3.5 inch SAS drives.

Thanks

Dell S4810 Switch's backup VRRP is responding as default gateway, which I think it i causing some issues.

Does anyone know why the router acting as backup for several VLANs are responding and acting as the gateway when it is in backup mode?  We can see this in the traceroute.  This is not happening to all VLANs but some VLANs, which I think is causing the latency issue we're having.

I see nothing in the logs or not VRRP state changes.

thank you in advance.

We have a super weird thing happening.  We have two Dell R730 servers, both with Perc H810 controllers in them.  The two servers are connected to an IBM V3700 and a Dell MD1220.

Last week, we rebooted the first host and at the boot, we got this error:

"LSI-EFI SAS Driver:
Unhealthy status reported by this UEFI driver without specific error

UEFI0116: One or more boot drivers have reported issues
Check the Driver Health Menu in the Boot Manager for details.

One or more boot drivers require configuration changes.  Press any key to load the driver health manager for configurations."

So, we got that after the reboot and after some googling, we decided to move the Perc H810 out of the second server into the first and it booted right up, no issues.  So, we chalked it up to a bad card, ordered a replacement, put it into the first server and it booted just fine as well.  There you have it, we had a bad Perc card.

Now, fast forward a week.  Server 1 has it's new Perc and it's running great, seeing all of the storage and we are happy.

Server 2 is running great with it's Perc card that we stole from server 1 last week and life is good.

Now, tonight, I need to reboot server 2 and boom, it hangs and is now reporting the exact same error as noted above.

Pressing any key does nothing.  The machine will not boot into anything...iDraq doesn't even kick work when it's in this state.  All we can do is remove the Perc card and it boots normally.

It "could be" that…

Latitude E5520 with clean install of Windows 10 Pro v1809 onto brand new HDD.  Everything works great, except the wireless adapter after a short period of time will show the exclamation mark and it will not communicate with anything.  The troubleshoot fails to resolve anything, the drivers are all updated, BIOS included, and Windows updates are current as of this writing.  No AV is installed yet, as testing is being done first to prove the laptop is still viable option for the business client.  He did not have any wireless problems before, just very slow.  Old HDD was in failed state (SMART) and data was recovered only.  The data hasn't even been restored yet, until laptop passes all tests in Windows.  It has nothing to do with power options, since the laptop doesn't even have to go to screen saver to fail on wireless.  The WiFi connection never drops.  Disconnecting and reconnecting will solve only temporarily.  WLAN is Dell 1501.  The laptop doesn't have any verified drivers for Windows 10 (Dell).  Appreciate any thoughts.

Ok Experts here is a dozy for us...
Unlocking domain accounts on our computers takes about 20 seconds, doesn't matter the hardware, old computers, new computers, doesn't matter. Started Monday, no changes to Group Policy were made.
Additional info: Remoting (RDP) into the computer is instant, like it should be, being physically at it seems to cause the issue. Any computer is doing this doesn't matter the specs, how many monitors, and/or what video card make/model. All the computers are Dell and the hardware firmware and driver versions doesn't matter either.
Background: We needed to turn off the AppReadiness service due to several users getting black screens after login, you could run commands manually however explorer wouldn't load.
We were very behind on updates on all of our compute devices and seem to have caught up, however this is annoying us now.

Please let me know if any additional information is needed, the whole RDP is OK but physical is not is really puzzling us. Logon does take a hair longer as well, but folks aren't complaining to us about it.

Thank you!!

I have a new Dell R440 Server on which I need to install Win Svr 2012 R2.
I have the iso file on a file sever which is connected to the same switch.
The server takes forever to boot up to the virtual media and when it does and the OS installation begins, the copy process is again very slow.
It then fails after reaching about 10 %.

I am trying now to boot from a USB key which i made from the iso image using Rufus, but it says it failed to boot from USB device.
Do see attached picture.

My question is: is there a particular bios setting or other settings that i need to configure before I could be able to boot from the USB key?
Also, what possible reason could there be for the slowness i am experiencing when booting from the Virtual Media (iso located on file server)?

When I turned my AIO dell on this morning, the monitor was solid green. No text, no beeping..nothing. I tried unplugging the power to it for 15 sec. then a second time for a full min. I also tried unplugging all peripherals and then restarting it. Still green. Any thoughts?

I've got a Dell B2375dnf Mono Multifunction Printer, that was given to me, that works fine, other than if you're trying to jam pack the automatic document feeder. I wanted to reset back to factory defaults, but doing so requires an admin name & password. After trying the defaults & finding out that no one from office has a clue what it might be, anyone have the answer in here?
Thanks-

I have a Ruckus ICX 7250 24 port switch with 8 Licensed 10 GB SFP+ ports and I will be getting a Dell EMC ME4024 Storage Array with 8 Port Dual Controller for iSCSI SFP+. I would like to know how to configure it on the switch and how to best use it with vmware vsphere 6.5.

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I've never had to configure one from scratch.

Thank you

I have a client with a Dell XPS 15 and i want to limit the notebook from charging past 80% to promote better battery health and life. Asus notebooks has an amazing app that you can set your notebook to charge to either 50,80 or 100%. I installed it on the Dell and it did not work. Does anyone know of an app that i can install on the XPS15 that does the same thing?

Problem: BitLocker encryption would not start.
I confirmed that the TPM chip is enabled in the BIOS and I updated the BIOS.
In the BIOS, under TPM Security, the check box for TPM On, is selected.

Hi all, I've been a member here since 2016 but have only been in-and-out to peek at some solutions which have been very helpful to me over the years.  So first off, I'd like to thank all the awesome people out there who provide answers to our questions - Thank You!    I have done a quick search in the exchange about my current question: "VMware ESXi 6.5 Console session, cannot type, keyboard does not work in console".   My setup, I have a Dell R210 II server, installed ESXi 6.5 Hypervisor on it, and stood up a VM with two dual core processors, 6GB of RAM, and 3 NIC interfaces .  A very basic setup.  The intent of this VM is for a Sophos XG Home firewall.  Standing up ESXi went quickly without issues, as well as configuring the VM in the Hypervisor.  I uploaded the ISO to the datashare, and the VM did successfully boot to the Sophos 17.5 XG Firewall install.  My issue is, when I login to the ESXi web interface and browse the VM's to launch the console session, no matter what I do, I'm not able to type in console.  I've tried to connect to the console in I.E., Firefox and Chrome - same result.  I've closed the console session and reopened the session a few times, no change in results.  I've even rebuild a second VM with the same parameters, no cigar. Has anyone ever experienced this?  I'm beginning to think there's an issue with the laptop I'm using to interface with the ESXi Hypervisor, but that doesn't make sense to me.  I don't think there's an issue with the ESXi server... …

ok, we have two Dell R730 servers with LSI HBA cards.  Those two servers are connected to a Dell MD1200 enclosure with 36TB of storage.

Server 1 was running ESX 6.0

Server 2 is running 6.7

I vMotioned the live VMs off of Server 1 over to Server 2 and upgraded Server 1 to 6.7

Both server are now running ESX 6.7

The problem is, Server 2 came up and while it is connected to the MD1200, the existing datastore does not show up in the list of Server 2 datastores.  The internal storage is there, and the IBM v3700 is there, but the Dell MD1200 didn't come back.

Now, Server 2 is connected to the MD1200 and all VMs live there.  I simple want Server 1 to reconnect and share that datastore, but I'm not sure what is going on.  

Can someone point me in the direction of making that MD1200 come back to Server 1 now that it's ESX is up to 6.7??

Thanks

Cliff

PS:  Reminder, Server 2 is connected to the Dell MD1200 and all live VMs live there and are on that host.  I just need my newly upgraded Server 1 to reconnect and share the storage.
