Microsoft Virtual Server

Microsoft Virtual Server was a virtualization solution that facilitated the creation of virtual machines on the Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows Server 2003 operating systems. Virtual machines are created and managed through a web-based interface that relies on Internet Information Services (IIS) or through a Windows client application tool called VMRCplus. Features included Linux guest operating system support, Virtual Disk Precompactor, symmetric multiprocessing (SMP), x64 host operating system support, the ability to mount virtual hard drives on the host machine and additional operating systems support, including Windows Vista, and a volume shadow copy writer.

We use SCCM 2012 to remote our user computers.
RDP works on all computers but Remote Control only works on some ones.
I check some of these failing computers and SCCM client is installed and the Remote Control setting enable.
If I run "Msiexec /i Client.msi SMSFULLREMOTETOOLS=1" this fix the problem.  Apparently the Remote Tool component is missing in these computers.
Is it a way to fix this problem remotely?

Aloha,

We have a situation where when we failover a vm to a DR site, the times on the failed-over vm's show UTC +0 - which is 10 hours ahead of us. The same thing happens no matter which direction we failover. Within ESX (5.5U3) we sync to the same time server across all hosts and the times showing up are consistent and correct.

Zerto is starting to hedge that this is vmware problem, which I know is bogus. Yesterday they even shot themselves in the foot on this claim. They asked me to do a clone of a vm using Zerto and sure enough the time came up screwed. I can clone vm's within vsphere till I'm blue in the face and every clone will have perfect time. Any ideas out there???

Mahalo,

Hello we have an IIS hosted website, binded to Citrix XenApp Store Front.  We have an AD server, Web Server, Citrix Server.
Currently in order to access site users need a CAC/PKI once this have authenticated they must enter a username & password to get into store front to see their application(s).  What we would like to do is get rid of the username & password, have just CAC/PKI authentication.

Hello,

I have got in to little trouble our VM host was corrupted because of sudden power loss so i had to rebuild VM-host machine and then created new VM using hyper-v manager by attaching existing HDD, i thought i should have current user data on it but strangely it has previous user who was using this vm a month ago data on it but no data for current user who used it even last week, I still have VHDX  files from few days back in C:\Users\Public\Documents\Hyper-V\Virtual hard disks, so i was wondering is there any way if i can apply vhdx file to existing VHDD or any other way to get current user data back i have attached the picture of hyper-v HDD's
Thanks

Hello Experts!

I am having a weird issue with my SCVMM server. I have a Windows 2016 server with SCVMM 2016 installed on it. all patches to the latest version.   When I try to connect remotely from my desktop (Win 10), I can't connect using ' use current Microsoft windows session identity'.  What is weird, I specify the credential, and I put my credential and it works. I need to put  username instead of domain\username.

that being said, it cause backup issue as Veeam also connect using domain\username. I am pretty sure resolving one will also resolved my backup issue.

Any advice appreciated

Today we were doing a new firewall install, the old firewall is a cisco ASA 5510 that was going to be replaced by a Sonicwall TZ 400(This was happening at 2 locations, the main office and the Colo).
The install was a bust and we were switching back to the Cisco, now upon switching back we cannot get virtual machines at the Colo to work, their office is up and running without issue, or any computer to use a couple IP addresses. Example LAN IP:
192.168.0.10
255.255.255.0
192.168.0.1
(it doesn't matter what the DNS is set to whether it is a public google/xfinity or to a DNS server that's local)
The systems cannot reach the outside network whatsoever
We have tried rebooting all network equipment
tried running netsh winsock reset
rebooting systems multiple times
destroying VM Switch adapter and recreating
investigated Cisco Firewall and no rules are in place stopping it.
The Cisco did show that from the inside out it is fine, but from outside in (Google dns to local ip) fails and defaults to the basic deny rule.
I have exhausted every resource I have and I am just short of going and sacrificing live chickens to the IT gods.
Please someone save me from this nightmare.

Running Windows 2012r2 Host with W2102R2 guest running Exchange 2016 CU7. When EPP is active on the host no traffic gets through to the Exchange server (guest). Disable Network Protection on Host and everything is fine. Standard setup with Virtual switch. Separate IPS on both host and guest. Traffic to both can be pinged. This is the second installation like this with the issue. EPP is not running on the guest only Windows firewall (both installations).

I have a 2012 VM running on a host 2008 server sp2.   I am having issues with the 2012 vm shutting down every few minutes.  I am seeing the following error in the hyper-v admin log.   I have tried to install integrated services.   Is there and update for 2012 integrated services running on an older host (2008 server sp2).

Integrated services version according to the registry is 6.2.9200.16384.

Data Exchange failed to connect to virtual machine 'Win2012APPS4' because the version does not match the version expected by Hyper-V (Virtual machine ID D8A5FF01-E0BE-47EF-BA5D-9017FD7CE70F). To fix this problem, remove the existing version from the guest operating system and then install the version provided with the version of Hyper-V you are using.

What is the process to attach .VHDX and .VHD hard drive files to existing Hyper-V virtual machines?

These are files from former Hyper-V virtual machines that I need to connect so I can copy data from them to newer existing Hyper-V virtual machines.

Hi,
I currently have Excel importing data from an Access db, however, the database is moving to a Virtual Machine that we have with MS Azure.
I am unsure what I need to do to connect to the db once it's moved.  The Excel will still be on my local machine.
We currently login to the VM via Remote Desktop Connection.  Within the VBA, what do I need?  Do I need to enter the password (as I do when I connect via RDC)?

thanks in advance

I would like to make a few 100 vm's available for remote users to access through a Barracuda 480 SSLVPN Appliance. These users will be logging into these vm's on a daily basis. I'm a little unsure about which direction to go. Do I do a virtual machine based or session based deployment? All of the documentation that I have read is very confusing at times. I have a Nvidia K2 installed on my host so I will be applying remotefx on those vm's.

Hello - I was asked by a school to create a VDI environment that students can access through thin clients. I haven't done a lot of research yet and wanted to check if anyone can point me to a good reference or even a little walk through how this should be done,

The school wanted to setup the lab entirely in Azure, however the monthly reoccurring cost are to high in the long run. So I suggested an on-premise setup with the option to provision clients to Azure if needed. From what I was reading about Windows Server 2016, it's seems to be designed to work closely with Azure.

What hardware specs would you recommend to provision, manage and run those 50 VMs? I was thinking about getting a lower end server for AZURE ADS connector and the Systems Center suite which I assume is needed to manage and provision VMs.

For the Hyper-V server running the VM I am a trying to find out what the minimum specs should be to accommodate all machines at the same time. Or would it be better to get two servers and setup a cluster?

As for licensing, I wanted to go with the Server 2016 standard or is there any feature in the Datacenter edition that I would need? I am also unclear on the licensing? Do I need a user or device CAL for every connection? The machines are supposed to run Windows 10 with Office installed and some other free software. How would that be billed (education licensing) ?

Hope I was able to give an idea what I am trying to do here. I am looking forward to your …

We have a 2012 Server running Hyper-V. I have 3 VMs running under it. Win 2016, Win 8.1, and Win 10. The W2016 and W10 VMs are both experiencing an issue whereby the date/time are rapidly switching back and forth between the host time and some date/time back in 2015.

Some facts.
The problem goes away if the W32time service is disabled on the affected VMs.
We do not see this issue on VMs with earlier versions of Windows.
The host and VMs are only in workgroups.
None of the machines (host or VMs) are a DC.
I've reproduced this exact behavior on another host.

Any input on this time sync issues would be very welcomed

I have 2 HYPERV host servers.

HYPERV1 is hosting APPSERVER
HYPERV2 is hosting  SBS2011 server and TERMINAL server.

(besides I have another domain controller and  approx 20 workstations)

I had hardware issues with the HYPERV2 host server and had to rebuild it with MS Server 2016 standard (It was MS Server 2012 R2 before)
I use Altaro for backup of the virtual machines.

I restored (or rather imported from backup) my main server Sbs2011 (Small Business Server 2011)

Now after the restore I have issues with connectivity to this server.

The server seemed to be restored correctly, but when I want to connect to shared folder on the Sbs2011 from another server I get following message:

"\\sbs2011\share is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of the server to find out if you have access permission.
Logon Failure: The target account name is incorrect"

I thought that possibly rejoining the domain will fix the issue, but when I try to do that I get:

"The following error occurred attempting to join the domain "domain":
Logon Failure: The target account name is incorrect."

It looks like I have no issues connecting to the SBS2011 by IP address.
I also noticed that after the reboot the SBS2011 netlogon service is paused and time service is not started.
They start manually without issues.

Well I am stuck - please help.

[Webinar] Cloud and Mobile-First Strategy

Maybe you’ve fully adopted the cloud since the beginning. Or maybe you started with on-prem resources but are pursuing a “cloud and mobile first” strategy. Getting to that end state has its challenges. Discover how to build out a 100% cloud and mobile IT strategy in this webinar.

Dear Experts,

Need urgent expert suggestion. Our hyper v cluster formed on SMB as storage is going unstable lately for some reason. Vm's just goes missing out of no where, the cluster behaves erratic, Host communication goes down from VMM but actual host will be running

We had this situation twice earlier and somehow recovered but this is recurring again like once in 10 to 15 days.

Please suggest where else to start looking for reason and if there is any trouble shooting guide to iron out the problem

Thanks and looking forward

Best Regards

I am setting up a site in an Azure VM Windows 2012 server. The DNS is pointing to the external IP of that machine.
Yet, when I go to IIS to bind the site to that IP the IP is not displayed in the drop down menu and the site does not come up.
I checked the traceroute and the domain is correctly pointing to that IP, I am not familiar with what other configuration needs to take place in order to bind the external IP to the site so that it comes up.
Any guidance would be helpful.

Hi all,

all of a sudden my virtual machine on the hyper v can't access network. the server have been working before without a problem.
now, the server can't even ping its default gateway. However, it can only ping one IP in our network.
i removed the network card adapter and recreated but with no chance.
the server is running windows server 2012 standard.

kindly advise.

I have a question regarding deploying templates.

when we deploy a template with SCVMM 2016 we receive error.

Error (2906)
The specified path //XXX-XXX-XXX.jict.local/MSSCVMMLibrary/Templates_xxx/XXX-TS-XXX-2/XXX-TS-XXX.vhdx is not valid on the XXX-CLA-XXX.jict.local server.

Recommended Action
Ensure that you have specified a valid path, and then try the operation again.

Open in new window


you can see in the error above. that the slashes are the wrong way.... is there a way i can change this path?

Pls advise.

I have a quick question. I am building a hyper-v virtual machine. I am new to virtualization. On a physical machine I would make a "C" drive for the OS and create another partition for the Data drive. On a virtual machine, would I do the same or create a virtual disk for the "C" and a virtual disk for the "D"?
