Virtualization is the act of creating a virtual (rather than actual) version of something, including (but not limited to) a virtual computer hardware platform, operating system (OS), storage device, or computer network resources. Virtualization is usually the creation of a system that executes separate from the underlying hardware resources, or the creation of an entire desktop for systems located elsewhere, similar to thin clients.

I am trying to setup MDT for work. I was given instructions to set up two virtual machine on Hyper-v without making it a domain machine and capture image. I have created two Win10 machines without a member domain and now I am trying to install MDT on it. During MDT installation, it is asking me to download WADK, and with in WADK I am getting error for Toolkit documentation x86. When I am locating the file to the path, it is giving me an error "unable to verify the integrity of downloaded content. it might be corrupted. please check your network connection and try again.
These two machines are not part of domain and not connected to the internet. I have tried to connected them to internet. I cant seem to get them connected to internet.

Put Machine Learning to Work--Protect Your Clients

Machine learning means Smarter Cybersecurity™ Solutions.
As technology continues to advance, managing and analyzing massive data sets just can’t be accomplished by humans alone. It requires huge amounts of memory and storage, as well as high-speed processing of the cloud.

Using vmware Site Recovery Manager.  All components are version 6.5.

A specific VM is replicated with vsphere replication, which is valid and up to date.
The protection group it was assigned to declared the VM to be invalid and no longer protected.  Attempts to configure protection fail with complaint that I do not have permission.  Same with attempt to remove the vm from the protection group. Cannot delete the group since it still has objects in it.

I am logged in as administrator @vsphere.local

I was able to remove all other vms from the group and make a new group, protecting the entire set of vms, including the one declared invalid.

So my vms are protected, but I have this ugly red spot on my dashboard that says I have a problem somewhere.  Any ideas how to get permission to clean this up?

Here's the situation:

We're a Citrix shop.  Most of our users launch XenDesktop session on iGel thin clients with multiple monitors.  That works fine.

I launch my XenDesktop the same way, but sometimes, I need to launch a XenDesktop session inside my XenDesktop session.  That is, I sit down at my iGel, launch my desktop (full screen, multi-monitor), then once I'm inside Windows, I log into Storefront and launch a different desktop.

I need that second desktop to appear Windowed, not full screen.  Right now, that second desktop opens full screen/multi-monitor, and I have to use Shift-F2 so that I can drag it sort-of-out-of-the-way.

The rub here is that I know that in the past, this worked fine.  I could open multiple XD sessions within Windows via Storefront Web and they would open in window-mode and I could minimize them while I worked.  Then, somehow, my Receiver decided that all my future XD sessions had to be full screen and I was borked from there on out.  Resetting my receiver doesn't help.

Any ideas?  I don't want to go editing delivery groups, master ICA files, or anything else that might effect most of my users' sessions.  I just want my sessions to launch in window mode when I launch them from my desktop receiver client.

Thanks!

Good morning,

I have the following disadvantage, currently in my organization uses a tool called HP Service Manager CMDB to perform the discovery of all servers in its infrastructure.

When I try to perform the discovery of two Windows servers through the tool I encounter the following errors:

- error: java.lang.Exception: The object exporter specified was not found.
- error: java.lang.Exception: Failed to connect to Wmi:RPC Server not available

I have doubt and could be an error internally of the tool and the operating system, since the firewall is disabled and I do not know what else could be happening.

Stay tuned to your comments.

Regards ...

Hi guys

I am going to be conducting a test for a candidate and would like that person to be able to access Vcenter to set up a new virtual machine. Is there a way for them to access Vcenter without being able to edit/touch the other VM's or even perhaps have them not be seen so that when they access, they only have the menu options and be able to set up a new virtual machine without worrying they might break/touch the systems?

Thanks for helping out

Trying to convert Hyper-V VM to VMware using VMware vCenter Converter Standalone Client 5.5.3 build-2183569 but getting following error at the time of connecting the Hyper-V Server (Windows Server 2012)-

"The version of the selected Microsoft Hyper-V Server is not supported. Select an earlier version of Microsoft Hyper-V Server or another supported source type."

I am running VMware vCenter Converter on the vCenter Server 6.0.

Need your expert help to resolve this issue.

I am working with a client to document their IT infrastructure and also to get their systems ready for an audit. The network is small. 100 users/SQL DB/Exchange 2013 on-prem/hyper-v virtualization with about 10 VMs – nothing fancy. The audit is SOC 2. I have never worked on audit or compliance before so this is a new challenge.

How do I go about getting a network ready for a SOC 2 compliance? Where do I even start? Any pointers would be very helpful?

I get the below errors when migrating a VM. This vm had an invalid .vmx file I imported.. It has issue.  I ended up commenting out some lines.  This being lines that pertain to UUID of datastores that don't exist on the new server.  Can't I just remove this VM from inventory and create a new VM and manually add the virtual disks?

The source detected that the destination failed to resume
The VM failed to resume on the destination during early power on.

I found this link but this was way too much work..

Hi All,

Can someone here please share some comments and steps in how to convert all three of my VCenter below:

Data Center 1:
PRODVCSA01-VA.domain1.com
VM: VCSA v6.5b

Data Center 2:
PRODVCENTER01.domain1.com
Physical: Windows Server 2008 R2 – VCenter 6.0 Update 1

Head Office 2:
HQVCENTER.company.com
VM: Windows Server 2008 R2 – VCenter 5.5 Update 3b

so that I can cluster it better like below two nodes Active/Passive VCSA ?
I do not have any load balancer in my company so I will use DNS Round Robin to automatically provide resiliency.

Thanks in advance.

First time setting up virtual machines using ESXi. I am running ESXi 6.5 and I have 4 NIC's which I added to the vswitch. I have then created 3 seperate Windows Server 2012 R2 virtual machines. On each machine I added 3 NIC's and bridged them together to give me a 3gb connection. When I run an internet speed test I am only getting 1mbps when I am expecting to get about 100mbps.

The virtual machine shows that the NIC's are Intel 82574L adapters. I went to intel and downloaded the latest driver but when I try to install it is says it cannot find any intel network adapters.

Any help would be appreciated.

This morning, I downsize the memory of a SQL 2008 R2 standard VM from 96 to 64GB and reallocate the CPU arrangement from 8 socket X 2 Cores to 4 sockets X 4 Cores.  

RAM arrangement because our version of SQL can see only up to 64GB.  CPU rearrangement to make SQL see 16 CPUs comprare to only 8 previously.

The WEB app that connects to this SQL is showing slowness.  Is there something in the SQL side I need to do to accommodate the changes?

Please advise if someone has an idea or suggestion.  

Thanks.

I have a user who would like to run the current Windows 10 operating system running on his Lenovo laptop as a VMware virtual machine within the Mac operating system.

We will purchase a Windows 10 Pro license to activate Windows 10 running as the Mac virtual operating system.

What is the process for doing this?

Hi

https://community.teamviewer.com/t5/Knowledge-Base/Remote-printing-with-TeamViewer/ta-p/4605

The link above shows how to print document from a remote PC to a local printer via team viewer,,,this doesn't serve my need .

My question how can I print I local document to a remote printer without transferring the file to a remote computer?

Means I have a local laptop that access 3 remote desktop located on the same place.

One desktop is connected to a carpentry machine (special machine for cutting wood) , from the laptop we transfer a drawing file but that desktop in not connected to any printer, therefore can't print

On the same we need to printer that drawing file via another desktop without transferring it .

Is that doable using team viewer ?

OSs are windows 7 for all

Thanks

Are there any problems or issues with using both and Parallels & VMware on same Mac Sierra v. 10.12.6 operating system?

Can both of these programs be run at the same time within the same Mac OS?

When you export a VM in Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V, does it export the VM and ALL checkpoints with it?

When I import the VM later, will it have the entire checkpoint subtree in the imported VM?

Hi All, i am consider the new Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 package at a site with two Host servers.

I have a pretty simple question that i cant seem to get an answer for, the Failover procedure is pretty straight forward and easy if i need to take the Source VM offline or its corrupted, my question is this, how do i get the Replicated Target Host VM online in the event hardware failure on the Source Host where Veeam is installed, if the Target Host has failed and i have no access to the Veeam console, how do i get the Replica VM online on the Target Host

I am sure there must be a simple solution, just cant seem to find anything

Thanks in advance

Hello Experts

I was getting the following error message whenever I tried to power up my VMware Windows VM

image
A very helpful expert provided me with an answer and I went ahead and purchased the CPU here:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Intel-Pentium-E5400-2-7GHz-Dual-Core-CPU-/263073163965

Unfortunately, I'm still getting the error message.

Can someone let me know what may be the problem?

Cheers

In Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V, I deleted the checkpoint subtree for one of the VMs ... let's call it VM1.  I see the "merging ..." status when this is happening.

Suddenly all other VMs were automatically paused in "Paused-Critical" state, and I can't restart any of them.

When I try to restart VM1 it says:
Could not initialize memory: There is not enough space on the disk. VM1 failed to start.  VM1 could not initialize memory.  There is not enough space on the disk.

The Virtual Machine VM1 failed to start because there is not enough disk space.  The system was unable to create the memory contents file on "C:\ ... . bin" with the size of 4097 MB.  Set the path to a disk with more storage space or delete unnecessary files from the disk and try again.


Before I deleted the checkpoint subtree for VM1, VM1 has 13GB of free virtual space, and the host / physical server 38GB free space.  Please help.

Hello,

      I have been asked to move a Terminal Server/RDP server that is a VM machine on a Server that serves also as a DC within two days! The server and their Dell Sonicwall TZ400 will be moved across the city to a temporary location but they still want it accessible to employees during the interim. Honestly, I am not certain what all settings I will need to change to point the employees to the new IP address on the sonicwall and server. I am aware they will need to adjust the IP/port on their RDP clients individually, but I need some direction as to what on the firewall and/or the Physical and VM server to make this work. I do have available static IPs at the new location.

      I have tried using the trusty Google, however I only find ways to trransfer license and CALs etc, but that is not the case. I am just physically moving the server and firewall from one location to the next with no hardware changes other than ISP/IP address. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Client is looking to have 3 separate locations connect to FileMaker databases.  Sometimes 2 users will want to access the same file.

Can they set up FileMaker Pro on a Virtual Private Server and use that copy to serve files?   What is the limit of open files for non-server FileMaker at the moment?
IF they purchased FileMaker Server, would that work?

Could they remotely run FileMaker on a VPS?

Is there a way to do this?

Thanks.
