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.

Hello,

I am trying to deploy OVF template using web client error message

Status :Connection to the remote resource was lost. Check your network connection.

Target :  esxhost25.XXXXXXX.XXX
Server :  Vcenter20.xxx.xx

Does it mean  vcenter20  server has issue accessing esxhost25  using  port 9443  ?

I have a workstation with two NIC the only use of this PC is for the vm

In hyper-v there is a option to optimize/maximum bandwidth for vm to designate one NIC for the vm only by not Allowing management operating system to share this network adapter

Is this option available with VMWare

I'm currently trying to get a Fujitsu fi-6130 document scanner to work in a virtual environment. This is my setup:

Hyper-V host running Windows 10 Pro
Hyper-V guest VM running Windows 10 Enterprise
Hyper-V guest VM running Windows 7 Pro SP1

On the host, I have enabled RemoteFX via Group Policy, and verified it is active through RSoP. The Fujitsu scanner drivers are installed on the host, and the scanner works properly. In the Hyper-V manager, I have a vGPU that can be used with RemoteFX, and have added that as an adapter to the VMs. When starting the RDP session, I can see the scanner as a RemoteFX USB device, and have selected it. But even after installing the drivers on the VMs, the scanner is not visible. It does not appear in Device Manager, Devices & Printers, and when I attempt a test scan using MS Fax & Scan, it tells me there is no scanner connected. I even went so far as to enable RDP redirection of RemoteFX devices on the VMs as well.

Everything I've read about it indicates that USB scanners should work through RemoteFX, but it's just not working for me. Am I missing something? If anyone has had success in getting this to work, I'd love to know how they did it.

I have been asked to migrate/update an Access/SQL Application so it can run in a VM Environment on a true SQL Server; I have a general understanding to get started, but this is my first VM project, so step one is to plan for the unexpected. I request that you treat me as a novice when making suggestions.

Rather than write a novel about the function of this Access/SQL Application and to minimize suppositions, I would rather respond to questions about it.

To start this off, here is the current configuration ...
Standalone Workstation
Windows 10 64 Bit
Access Pro Plus 2013 (Front End)
SQL 2016 Express (Back End)

What would be the best approach and what pitfalls should be anticipated?

One of our customers is having a complex (multi-symptom) issue with a Server 2008 R2-based VM running in Hyper-V.  

Affected server:  Server 2008 R2 virtual machine on a Server 2012 R2 hypervisor.  VM functions as a file server, DC, DNS server, DHCP server, and application server (yes, we're aware this isn't a best practice, but we inherited it from another provider). Integration services are up to date for this VM.

Symptoms:

--Client PCs on both of the customer's network segments suddenly and randomly (morning or evening) all lose the ability to reach the server's file shares (all clients timeout trying to connect).  App and system logs on the client PCs, file server VM, and hypervisor show no apparent problem.  In fact, the file server can be pinged just fine from every workstation, and curiously, I can browse to \\PCname\C$ of each PC on the network from that server!

--When the VM is restarted, it hangs on "shutting down", and the "turn off" function in Hyper-V Manager must be used to power it off (we've waited 1 hour and then 30 minutes the first 2 times this happened).  As soon as it is powered back on, Windows loads without incident, and client PCs can reconnect to all shares.  The app and system event logs for the VM show the transition from shutdown to restart, but there's nothing abnormal noted.

--When this VM experiences the issue, no other VMs on the same host have problems (we have an Exchange VM, terminal server VM, etc.).

I should mention that…

We have  a VMware environment which has 3 hosts and we have multiple production VM's. We are planning to implement an FTP solution where we will have the FTP running in our production VM on one of the 3 hosts and there is an associated gateway product which needs to sit in the DMZ to provide a safer way of communication to the FTP server from the outside world. I have seen some articles on the web but want to hear from someone with real experience in setting this up in their environment

My question is
1. Can we utilise the existing VM infrastructure and create a DMZ environment utilising the same hosts
2. What are the best practices for having the DMZ VM's alongside our production VM's whilst providing the separation and maintaining the security aspect of what is needed
3. Can we setup the DMZ VM's in this fashion and also gain the high availability function utilising the VMotion capabilities.

My HyperV host is licensed with 2012 R2 Standard, and my first attempt at installing the guest OS of 2012 R2 didn't go well, so I deleted it and started over. (I don't remember having to activate that one)
I have this VM all set up and ready for production, but it has a notification that it needs to be activated. Did I do something wrong? It will not activate with my original key either...

I'm looking at a single, physical Windows Server 2008 R2 server, that is running both Hyper-V (5 virtual machines) and SQL Server 2008 R2.  Is this a supportable configuration.  I saw a Microsoft article that said it wasn't, but it only applied to clustered environments...this is not one of them.

I have a single Exchange 2013 box running all roles on a VM. It’s been in place for years and we haven’t made any recent changes. I built a FrontendTransport receive connector to allow selected internal and external servers to relay anonymously. This has been in place for years as well and nothing has changed recently. In the middle of the day one day last week mail suddenly stopped relaying from internal servers and printers. Any servers on a different subnet relay just fine. Incoming and outgoing mail works as expected. When I point the internal servers to the outside IP address for the Exchange server, and add their external IP address to the relay connector the mail flows fine.

I used ADSI Edit to verify that Anonymous Logon had “Accept any Sender” selected. I have restarted the server and the Transport service many times and even deleted and recreated the receive connector. I cannot telnet into the server from the LAN either. I get a “421 4.3.2 System not accepting network messages” error. I can connect and send mail via telnet from the Exchange server itself. There is not any AV software installed on the Exchange server. I have tried turning off, turning on and disabling the firewall. I even created a rule to allow port 25 separate from all of the Exchange rules. I cannot figure out what’s happened here. Any help you can provide would be appreciated.

I Get the following error...
Note that the refernced account does exist, but is not the one the jobs are created with  which is an admin user speicifcally used for the task. All was working fine till I upgraded.
I have the backup location, and created new ones (and multiple variations on that theme.
I have upgraded to the latest version (twice).
Note that it seems the original 018 error, is general, the more accurate 027 is reported later...
Any ideas?

The backup operation encountered an error. (Error code 'BASEBACKUPCONTROLLER_018')
Additional information is available:
None of the backup locations configured for this VM can be connected and written to. (Error code 'LOCATIONPROVIDER_001')
Please check that any required locations are connected and accessible. If you are attempting to use a Network Path or Server Location please ensure that the saved credentials are correct. It is important that the Host upon which the VM resides has access to the locations.
Additional information is available:
Cannot authenticate to the network path: \\10.240.11.80\Altaro-37ACE20466EFA4FA4F59B1B3E6080B47$ on domain "WKS-ALTARO1" with user "AltaroUser_7527" (Error code 'HARD_DRIVE_027')

Hi, some time ago I have cloned and installed this project github.com/openshift/openshift-ansible on the VMs where SELinux was disabled
And now I can see this doc openshift.org , where they say: Security-Enhanced Linux (SELinux) must be enabled on all of the servers before installing OpenShift Origin or the installer will fail.
So my question is how does Openshift play with SELinux? What is the algorithm of this play?

Hi
I have created 3 Win2012 R2 (Evaluations) servers and 3 Win10 Pro (Evaluations) within VMware workstation 5.5. I have made sure that  there are in the same NAT network and the connected to the same adapter in Vmware workstation and there  can all connected to the internet. I have promoted one of the servers to a domain controller and enabled DHCP, DNS. However when l try to join the VM machines to the domain it says the domain controller cannot be contacted. I have tried to given the VM machines static IP addresses not included in the NAT or DHCP but still l cannot get them to join the domain.  I would appreciate any assistance.

Our production website is using SOLR Search.   I am in the process of standing up a dev/test and staging environment.  Each needs to have it's own instance of SOLR.   My question is this.   How can I see what server SOLR is indexing?   I want to ensure that the dev/test and staging instances of SOLR don't attempt to reference the production VM.

Hi Experts,

I have a couple of applications - Great Plains 7.5 and Great Plains Integration Manager which have to be run on XP 32 bit. The approach Ive taken on Windows 7 PC's is to use VMware 12 player and create an XP VM then load the applications. This approach works with out a problem. I've attempted to repeat this on W10 PCs and GP 7.5 works fine but Integration Manger will not load correctly.

I thought that VMware player would provide the same environment on either W7 or W10 host but obviously this is not the case.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks

I am de-commissioning a physical server running SQL and replacing it with a Hyper-V virtual machine.  Can I simply name the new server the same as the old one so client machines don't need modified?

Hi, following along on a tutorial on using Netbeans debugger. However, when I set a break point then click to debug and then try to use the Step Into (F7) command a windows opens up with a name like InputStreamReader.java and I am out of the debugger.

The code used for this tutorial  has a variable that is set from a user input and the only error I see is
"Variable Information not available, source compiled without -g

I am using a virtual machine built in VMWare Pro 12. Not sure if that has anything to do with it. At any rate I am not able to step into.
