Hi All

I am currently in the process of building a Windows 10 1803 image in both HyperV and VMware horizon. Our Office products are managed by KMC licensing.

I am wondering how to go about pulling down Office updates? due to the KMC licensing the update option that is normally present in a standard licensed version (home user) is no longer present.  When I run windows OS updates no office update come down either.

Usually we push our Office Update's down via SCCM but as this is a base image I want to have the office version as up to date as possible before we deploy the Windows 10 build to our users.  The SCCM client will not be on the base image as you are moving to inTune.

OS build Windows 10 1803 - Office 2016 Updates

Any advice would be greatly apricated.

Thanks

Vcenter web client error 6.5

After rebooting the vcenter server running Windows 2016 standard, and waiting over an hour, I get the following error
"503 Service Unavailable (Failed to connect to endpoint: [class Vmacore::Http::NamedPipeServiceSpec:0x000001ebb126a030] _serverNamespace = / action = Allow _pipeName =\\.\pipe\vmware-vpxd-webserver-pipe)"

I don't know if it is related but I did change the password for administrator@vsphere.local JUST before the reboot

Does anyone have experience with or know a good way to backup virtual machines running on VMWare? But it is a requirement that there be open source software. Partly because I am on a tight budget, but also in principle because I think there is very good open source software in general.  It is also a requirement that it should run on Linux as I do not have a single Windows machine.

I have an environment of VMWare 6.5 hosts running on HP bl460c servers in a c7000 enclosure. All 16 servers have two vmnic's dedicated to iSCSI, and attached to a DS which is dedicated for storage traffic. These vmnic's are bound to vmk adapters which are in turn bound to the iSCSI software adapter on the host. The server nics are connected to Cisco switches via the passthrough interconnects on the enclosure.

For my storage device, I have a NetGear ReadyNAS 4312 with four 1Gb interfaces. I have configured these into dual bonded nics and both bonds are set with Layer 2 LACP modes and configured channel-groups on the Cisco switches. The bonds were assigned IPs, the vmks, were assigned IPs, and the software adapter was configured to discover the iSCSI LUN on the appropriate IP addresses.

During the original configuration, all MTUs in the path were at 1500. All 16 servers saw the storage and it was presented as a datastore to the cluster for which it was intended. All seemed well, but once the VMs were all running on the datastore, we began to have latency issues and significat lag when interacting with the VMs, whether by SSH or the console. As a test, I moved a couple of the trouble VMs to a different storage and the problems were eliminated. I knew that jumbo frames were supposed to be best practice for iSCSI but didn't want to shutdown the entire environment in order to configure and bounce all the switching but after these problems, and reading several papers on the …

I am trying to install VMWARE from the linux bundle on my Manjaro Linux system.  I got close with the Manjaro Forum (and it is still out there).  I need to find the kernel headers my kernel is using.  My kernel is up to date but I can not find the header files for it so I can tell VMWARE.  The message I get is below.Output of VMWARE install bundle

2 Windows 2012 R2 Data Center NLB IIS DFS/R URL Rewrite
2 Windows 2012 R2 Data Center Web Farm IIS DF/R
VMware ESXI 6.5

I can not access my web sites externally.   Internally using the VIP of the NLB servers it works.

When I modify my Meraki router to point to the VIP of the NLB no one can access my two sites.

If I change the meraki router to point to the physical address of one of the Web Farm servers that works also.

I need to be able to access my web farms thru the NLB servers

Thank you

I am using a Promox VE on my local ML110 xeon 28GB 480GB SSD server. and wish to backup on my Qnap TS-253A 8GB ram nas server.

Normally I log into the local server with: https://snag.gy/RYE3Sm.jpg URL: https://192.168.1.20:8006/#v1:0:18:4:::::: user id: root and then the password. but when I try to log in, it's not working: https://snag.gy/D9zsEx.jpg 

I downloaded nakivo for the backup.

Hi,

I am using vSphere Web Client 6.5 to mange about 20 servers.
I would like to check VMware vSphere Standard (210-AHRT) license status for getting license quotation.

When I tried to check the license status from "Licenses" menu on vSphere Web Client 6.5, it says below:

License provider: All vCenter Server systems
To view and manage licenses, you must have the Global Licenses privilege on the vCenter Server system where this vSphere Web Client runs.


Please let me know how to check the license status.

I also heard that there is flash client?
If so, please let me know the download link for this version.

I appreciate your help.

I am undecided on whether doing Windows clustering (WSFC) used to be MSCS inside VMWare or not.  I need a way to monitor my application and windows services particularly.  I am not aware of a way that VMWare can monitor windows services and restarted them.  If I do windows clustering inside VMware, I am concerned about the complexity and losing some of the VMware HA features.  Any thoughts or advice on the subject is greatly appreciated.

When i issue a command # esxcli storage filesystem list, I get /vmfs/volumes/598c7ef**-** along with name of the Vmware datastore
i am trying to find which of these belongs to storage's naa.600601
I  issued # esxcli storage core path list and it is listing the multipathing information and get naa number.
In other word i am trying to find the way to match the naa.6666*** with uuid. This way i can go into the storage and increase the space for the LUN .

Hi,
I am using vCenter ESXi 6.0.
Since I ran out of space on VCSA due to very big audit.log file, I followed this URL:
https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/2149278

I changed root password, and rebooted vCenter Appliance.
I am unable to access through vcsa.
In web interface, I get error:

503 Service Unavailable (Failed to connect to endpoint: [N7Vmacore4Http20NamedPipeServiceSpecE:0x7f9ab7e2ac40] _serverNamespace = / _isRedirect = false _pipeName =/var/run/vmware/vpxd-webserver-pipe)

Even with vSphere client (the server could not interpret client's request)

How can I solve this?
Thank you

I have Veeam backup and recovery and was wondering why I received the email message after I added disk space to one of my VM's using VMWARE.  I added 50 GB and then rescanned the drive and increased the drive space.  Does it always delete all restore points when you do this?  I thought I've increased disk space before in VMWARE and did not see this message.

Dear Experts, we purchased Disk enclosure HPE 2050 yesterday to expand the storage capacity of SAN storage controller HPE MSA 2040.

We connected 1 SAS cable from OUT port of 2040 to IN port of 2050. After that, we turned on the 2050 device and add disk group, built RAID6 but it seems like take longer time than expected. Moreover, we got the "Degraded" status on Disks information, so is it normal? Can you suggest please? Should we connect the other SAS cable between 2 devices?

VMware displayed fan hardware error message but HP Proliant never ever shows any diagnostics errors when running the full hardware diagnostic at boot.  We have had periodic issues of server shutdowns a couple times a year w/ again no diagnostics errors but this particular one caused a couple virtual machine to get really corrupt to the point we had to perform a Veeam restore.  Anyway, here's the message below from VMWARE about a hardware fan issue but I don't understand why I can't any event logs or diagnostics to reveal a fan error too.  I ripped out the chassis panel and all four fans are blowing hard, no signs of slowing down.  I really don't this type of corruption to happen again causing catastrophic to their most application in the environment.  Any ideas of what needs replacing?  Is this masking a motherboard issue?   I am purchasing 4 fans that are not HP as a start. HP stopped selling for this particular Proliant unit.

Hello!

I got a big problem with vmware workstation 12.5.9 build-7535481:

In snapshot manager I wanted to delete a snapshot.

A message has occourred that there is not enough disk space to do this.

Now the snapshot is not longer visable in snapshotmanager.

The snapshot is not visible running:
C:\Users\hhussy\Documents\Virtual Machines\MONTEVELO3>"c:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\VMware Workstation"\vmrun listsnapshots montevelo3.vmx
Total snapshots: 0

The snapshot-chain seems to be fully functional, because the virtual machine is running correctly.

I am in the process of upgrading my VMware vCenter Server from 5.5 to 6.0.  This is my first attempt at upgrading a vCenter Server so I am flying a little blind here.  When I begin to run the upgrade, I receive the following message:

"Warning: This vCenter Server has extensions registered that cannot be upgraded to or may not work with the new vCenter Server.

Extensions:
VMware vSphere Update Manager Extension on
https://myserver.mydomain.com:[port#]/vci/sdk"

Is this something that I need to be concerned with or is it normal when upgrading from 5.5 to 6.0?

Thanks,

Chris

This is in planning to setup a new VMware-base virtualization that comprises of 4 ESXi 6.5 hosts. All of the current physical servers, some SuSE and remainder MS Windows servers have to be migrated to virtualization. There are few pair of dual-host cluster using MS Windows clustering with shared storage. I heard that you actually can forget about migrate the clustering functionality, indeed, use the VMware's features, such as (but not limited to), HA, vMotion, or even vsan, and other; to "take over" the ms clustering.  Is that true? What would be the best choices to migrate this dual-host MS Windows Clustering into VMware virtualization and how?

thanks in advance
