Andy's VMware vSphere tip#18: Rather than burning your VMware ESXi Hypervisor installation ISO to a CDROM/DVDROM, "burn" it to a USB flash drive, for quicker installation! (and if you execute from RAM even quicker!)

OEM-DELL-ESXi.jpg
You can use Rufus or YUMI to do this.

https://rufus.akeo.ie/

https://www.pendrivelinux.com/yumi-multiboot-usb-creator/

We actually have a number of flash drives, and USB external hard disks we use for different installations, for different vendor OEM ESXi, e.g. separate devices for Dell, HPE, Lenovo/IBM, and Fujitsu.

and also different releases, e.g. 5.x, 6.x, 7.x!

We also add to these flash drives, on the release of new ESXi versions, and we keep all the legacy versions, just in case there is a need to repair and installation!

HOW TO: Fix the Error loading /s.v00 Fatal error: 33 (Inconsistent data) in the VMware vSphere Hypervisor

Andy's VMware vSphere tip#6: [InstallationError] [Errno 28] No space left on device - updating from 6.5 U1 to 6.5 U2 (possible other versions as well!)

We were updating HPE Proliant Servers Generation 8 [G8], and it would appear as of writing HPE have still not released a Gen8 ESXi 6.5 U2 Image! So we had to use 6.5 U1 and updated to U2. [Please note always use the OEM version of ESXi for vendor servers, e.g. HPE, Dell, IBM/Lenovo, Fujitsu etc]

This might lead you to this VMware Kb - https://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=1007638

But it does not appear to be anything to do with space on the device, and when you investigate there is plenty of storage space.

Here's a quick workaround..

 Install the vib manually, see here

1. cd /tmp

2. wget http://hostupdate.vmware.com/software/VUM/PRODUCTION/main/esx/vmw/vib20/tools-light/VMware_locker_tools-light_6.5.0-1.47.8285314.vib

3. esxcli software vib install -f -v /tmp/VMware_locker_tools-light_6.5.0-1.47.8285314.vib

Complete 6.5 U2 upgrade as normal.

4. esxcli software profile update -p ESXi-6.5.0-20180502001-standard -d https://hostupdate.vmware.com/software/VUM/PRODUCTION/main/vmw-depot-index.xml

How Microsoft helped imprison a man for counterfeiting software it gives away for free

https://techcrunch.com/2018/04/25/how-microsoft-helped-imprison-a-man-for-counterfeiting-software-it-gives-away-for-free/

Wondering if he hadn't made these disks look like Dell's this would have made it to court.

I would guess he's either really annoyed someone or the DMCA supporters want a scalp.

He's organised, at his own cost, for 1000's of reinstallation DVDs for Windows 7 to be produced, in doing so he's had them made to look identical to the Dell DVDs that are shipped free when you buy a new computer.

This is where it gets messy legally.

Reinstall DVDs from manufacturers just contain software. They are provided "free" with a new PC.
(Actually there's a nominal cost to the PC manufacturer in manufacturing them but it works out at pennies - the convicted guy was creating these and his costs would have been a little higher as he was making 1000's while PC manufacturers make 1,000,000's). They have printed on them "Please do not make copies of this disk".

Windows software requires a license to use. When you buy your PC with Windows from Dell, Dell have bought a Windows license from Microsoft and are selling it on to you. The cost - around $20 compared to $140 for the full retail version.

The short version of the court case is two-fold - (1) Microsoft say they've lost out on 1,000's of $20 licenses AND (2) because the disks look identical to Dell's originals they …

I have a Dell H625cdw Copy\Scan\Printer that I am having issue getting to scan to email.   The owner of the device had lost the admin password so I had to factory reset it.   Now that it is factory reset I am not familure with the SMTP settings to make it work.   The owner is using Office 365 and I am using smtp.0ffice365.com as the SMTP server.   I have tried several of the authentication type settings but expect that is the current issue.   Can someone give me a little guidance with this unit please.   Thank you

Here's an article from MS on how to set it up - https://support.office.com/en-us/article/How-to-set-up-a-multifunction-device-or-application-to-send-email-using-Office-365-69f58e99-c550-4274-ad18-c805d654b4c4

Make sure you have the port set to 587 and TLS is enabled.

Installing VMware vSphere (ESXi) for the first time, and are using a branded server, e.g. IBM, Lenovo, DELL, Fujitsu etc update the firmware FIRST, and then head off and download the OEM version of ESXi, and install it! Do not use the VMware version!
