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.

HyperV VM Refuses to Power up Following a Power Loss in HyperV Cluter.

I am getting event IDs 21502, 1069.1205, and 1254. Looks like some config file got corrupted, can I just remove the config file? Tried rebooting one of the hosts in the cluster but that didnt do it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Keep up with what's happening at Experts Exchange!

Here’s the setup:

VMhost running ESXi 6.5
BROKER1 – 2012r2
RDS1 – 2012r2
RDS2 – 2012r2
RDS3 – 2012r2
All updates applied to all servers involved.
All clients running Win10x64

User profile disks are saved on a share on the broker.  Nothing unusual with effected user’s disks as far as I can tell (all of similar size).
RemoteApp (Not Remote Desktop) used by clients to run a SQL frontend app.  Some user’s queries going much slower than others, even those logged into the same session host running the same queries.

After deleting the user’s profile disk and having them log in again, the SQL queries start going fast again.  This last for weeks sometimes but eventually it slows down to a crawl again and I must delete their UPD all over.

The users effected have the same permissions as everyone else and are connecting from the same office, over the same 100Mb up and down fiber.
I haven’t been able to find anything out of the ordinary in the event logs on either the broker or the session hosts.

Any ideas?

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.

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.

Free Tool: Port Scanner

Check which ports are open to the outside world. Helps make sure that your firewall rules are working as intended.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

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.
