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.

Hi to everyone,

I am facing some issue, I configured NLB on server 2012  for share point server, i have two host with high availability and two share point server.....
 now i can able to ping virtual ip and also able to resolve from any server with same subnet.

But from client am not able to ping virtual ip but i can able to ping same server  subnet  like share point server etc and virtual ip also set same subnet of share point..

Hi, I am trying to set up VMM in my domain and I am struggling a bit with creating a cluster via VMM. I have used clusters before but never through VMM.

I have a blade chassis with 16 blades in and I am trying to standardise the machines. Each blade has 2x 10GB connections across 2 switches and 4x 1gb connections across 2 switches (ports 1+3 switch 1 and 2+4 on switch 2).

Now I think I am doing my setup correct, but some advice on what is wrong would be great.

I am trying to create 4 different connections. Management, cluster, storage and Hyper-v. To do this I have created 3 logical switches. 10GB, Client and Management. I have then created 4 logical networks.


Storage - 192.168.10.0/24
Client - 192.168.20.0/24
Management - 192.168.12.0/24
Cluster - 192.168.14.0/24

On 3 blades for now while I test this I have gone in to the virtual switches tab. On here I have created the following

Client Switch - No virtual adapter and assign physical adapter 1GB port 1 and 2. - I then assign this to the VM's and set the IP's and they can communicate fine.

Management Switch - Physical 1GB adapters port 3+4 with a virtual adapter on the Host management VM network I created and corresponding IP pool / static address

10GB Switch - Physical 10GB adapters port 1+2 with 2 virtual adapters, one for storage and one for cluster. I have a separate VM/Logical network for each of these and I have set them to the corresponding IP pools with static IP addresses.

So I think …

2008r2 HyperV host with single VM, has one vhd and single snapshot

Flailing attempts to reduce consumed disk space have made the situation worse - now down to around 550MB free space for the host drive file system.

Researching the issue I believe that an export is the only option if snapshots are present but of course I need to retain the GUI and name of the server.  So successfully exported to a larger host disk with ample space but then the import of course fails.

So now it would appear that the only way to stay on the same host is to delete this VM - but then when the VM is deleted the avhd will be merged with the vhd file and it will run out of space (and I need to then be on-site to make more space happen).

I want rid of the snapshot but not the changes on it.

Any suggestions are welcome?

Oh yeah, I did do a Windows backup to shared folder if that matters.

Thanks

Hello,

I am looking into a Nutanaix hyperconverged system to replace some ailing DELL PowerEdge servers.  We currently utilize Windows DataCenter 2012 R2, running as our hypervisor and have virtualized all of our servers on this hypervisor.

The Nutanix solution allows us to continue to run this hyper visor within it's Acropolis O/S.  

I have some concerns regarding this system, since the hypervisor is now housed on a "foreign" o/s.  I worry that at some point there will be a problem and getting support will be convoluted, because MS would say this is an unsupported environment, and left bouncing back and forth between MS and Nutanix for help.

Our main goals are to provide fail over for DR.  Initially our thought was to buy new robust servers, continue to run datacenter and look into replication and HA.  A datacenter server housed at separate sites connected with high speed fiber links.  Providing us failover if a hardware failure occurs, or if a site is rendered unusable.  Can I accomplish this with just utilizing MS Datacenter?  A single Nutanix 3-node cluster will provide us with failover in the event of a hardware crash, but would require a completely separate 3-node DR cluster provide failover in the case of a site being rendered unusable.

I would like to know the answer to the question above, and first hand experience with Nutanix.

Thank You for your help.

We have Windows Server 2012 R2 that has 2 Virtual Machines inside running Win 7 Pro sp1. They were working fine until last week when I opened Hyper-V manager, there was no VM listed. Tried to connect to them by right clicking on Hyper-V manager --> connect to server but I get an error message : "An error occurred while attempting to connect to server "servername". Check that the Virtual Machine Management Service is running and that you are authorized to connect to the server". So I checked the services and found that VMMS doesn't start.

so far I have tried disabling Firewall, made an exception on Anti-Virus, Restarted Windows Management Instrumentation and none of them made any changes.

Do you guys have any ideas how to resolve this issue?

Many thanks

We have established site to site connectivity between our on-premises VLAN and Windows Azure VLAN. But when we are trying to access any resources of our on-premises network from Azure virtual machine its showing error message as "unable to find network location" and vice versa. We want to know if we are missing any steps which stops us from accessing resources between the network.
