VMware is virtual machine software that provides a virtualized set of hardware (a video adapter, a network adapter, and hard disk adapters) to the guest operating system. VMware virtual machines become highly portable between computers, because every host looks nearly identical to the guest. In practice, a system administrator can pause operations on a virtual machine guest, move or copy that guest to another physical computer, and there resume execution exactly at the point of suspension. VMware's enterprise software hypervisors for servers, VMware ESX and VMware ESXi are bare-metal embedded Hypervisors that run directly on server hardware without requiring an additional underlying operating system.

IE 11 gives either "cannot open web page" or "Can not open search page".  Chrome works fine.

We are using Server 2008 R2 Enterprise. We recently moved a server from one VMware storage to another. We also took off the network card and put it back on. The ip address did not change. Also other programs can't access their services such as Malwarebytes can't do updates, teamviewer can't connect and one or two others. I get the feeling it is a network issue that is affecting several programs IE 11 being the most obvious symptom


So far I have:
-reregistered ie11 dlls
-flushed DNS
-changed to dhcp with reservation
-reset all advance ie settings
-disabled addons

Issue = Esxi 5.0 Hosting two vm's. One VM shown as Unknown (inaccessible) stored on the local datastore. Although unknown/inaccessible, that vm continues to run w/o issues and is accessible via RDP. On the same host but in shared storage (another host), the other vm looks and runs fine. I saw this post < https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/28436360/vm-shows-unknown-inaccessible-after-iscsi-datastore-power-failure.html > but it did not provide a resolution. I removed the vm from inventory and created another one but it failed to start saying the VMDK file was locked and the vm could not be started. I think i'm going about the wrong way trying to restore a vm that somehow still running but not showing in inventory anywhere. Any help will be much appreciated. Please let me know if you need more information to help me with and/or understand the above issue. Thank you all!

Dear experts, we are configuring Veeam backup jobs. We have:

Job1: 5 TB for full,  120 GB for incremental

Job2: 2.5 TB for full,  100 GB for incremental

The storage has 15 TB free,  we would like to take one full backup per month,  then incremental.  So which settings should we choose in backup mode,  and the optimal  schedule for these 2 jobs?  Should we run full backup jobs in the same day?  

Many thanks.

Exchanger services stuck in starting state  ( info store,  transporting services,  etc)
but all this is cause by my corrupt dns on the dc. The exchange server even takes for ever log in. " applying user setting"
This is probably due to connectivity issues to the dc

I need to rebuild/ reconfigure my  dns,  it's corrupt,  is there a way to do this with AD integrated?
DCdiag:  dns,  fix  etc all gives the same errors

note,  this has nothing to do with the firewall  

We also had a physical DC,  moved to  VM but it seems like the Tech never resolved issues on the previous DC,  corrupt entriesi in the sysvol.
Can  these entries be cleared out

I've done a metacleanup on the new DC but it still feels like old entries exist somewhere.  
On dns:  I thoroughly went through all folders and removed entries of the old DC,  even on sites and services and ADSIedit
but when you reload on  any zone,  it bring back the old DC,  host file.
Scavenge is turned on.  

There are some loopback entries under reverse lookup but I can't even …

Hello, I am looking for a pdf copy of a book called VMware vShpere: Install, configure, Manage [6.5] . Please let me know where I can get this. Also, if anyone has any recommendations for VMware 6.5 training or books that will be great. I have little knowledge of VMWare and would like to start somewhere.

Greetings,

I have an esxi host with about 132 GB of RAM. It is showing between 88% and 92% memory usage. I only have 3 servers running on this host. A vCenter 5.5 appliance, a DC, and exchange 2013. On exchange vm summary, consumed host memory is 112942.00 MB. Active guest memory is 10485.00 MB. Task manager on exchange shows only 45% memory usage. Nonetheless, exchange is running slow.  

Any ideas on how to deal with this are greatly appreciated.

Hi experts,
we are implementing a HA environment based on vmware and two DELL hosts wit one iscsi DELL san.
We are moving from Hyper-v where we can connect directly hosts on san without switch in the middle.
Now we are looking to vmware best practices, in order to create a regular and officially supported configuration.
We cannot find the exact documentation about interconnection between HOSTS and SAN in a failover cluster with VSPHERE 6.5 (License used are ESSENTIAL PLUS)
We need to know if we can connect directly hosts to san with their nic, or we need to use a 10gb switch in the middle
For this reason we need the exact documentation reference.
Really thanks for your support, ask me for details if i was not clear

A simple question around vSphere Enhanced Linked Mode configurations.

The supported topologies are here: VMware Knowledge Base https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/2147672

What I am trying to do is end up with 3 different sites; Site1, Site2, Site3. Each site is in a separate area of the country, so I have concerns about having only 1 PSC at 1 location and pointing all other VCSA's to it.

What I would like to do is have 1 VPSC and 1 VCSA at each site, all joined to the same SSO domain in enhanced linked mode. From the topology KB linked above, it looks like the only way I can have more than 1 site each with their own VPSC is to use a third party load balancer, however I do not believe this is accurate.

At a previous company I had 4 sites, each with their own VPSC and VCSA but all in one SSO domain in enhanced linked mode with no issues. Am I reading the supported topologies wrong?

The 4th option down form the top states:

1 Single Sign-On domain
1 Single Sign-On site
2 or more external Platform Services Controllers

It does show multiple VPSCs without a load balancer but only allows 1 site, so I am confused. Each office would be it's own 'site' but I would not be using a third party load balancer.

After updating vCenter (on Windows server) from 5.5 to 6.5, it looks like all tags have been orphaned in the database.  We use Veeam to backup used to vCenter tags.  After the update, we still see the tags displayed in the tag configuration section but we can't edit them.  When trying to assign an existing tag to a new VM or folder, no tags are available to be assigned.

During all this Veeam has been working with the existing tag configuration but now we need to add more objects.

Has anyone experienced a similar issue?

In the VMware Advanced VMware performance tab (using the C# client as the customer is running 5.5), when selecting the CPU performance monitor - I want to view the CPU performance in Mhz over a year.  However, the counters options are: -

- Usage in Mhz (Min)
- Usage in Mhz (Ave)
- Usage in Mhz (Max)

When loading in each counter you then get the max/ave/min of the CPU usage.

From what I can see the counters take a min and a max reading with the Average being of the two and each has its max/min/ave of those numbers- however, what is the actual MAX CPU usage and which counter should be used?  I want to know what the max CPU usage is over the year - if I follow the max counter and look at the max value then it states the CPU Mhz maximum is the total CPU Mhz available on the host - which I don't believe is true, but the max value on the average counter looks too low in comparison to the realtime usage.

Been doing this for years and never noticed the max and min counters so must have always taken the average stats, but would like to know the best practice

Hi, I am trying to connect through RDP to a Windows10 VM (VMware ESXi), from my workstation (W10 too)
It seems authentication is fine, I can see desktop background for 1 second, and suddenly I am disconnected.
I also tried with local console, same behavior.
How can I solve this?
I am not pretty sure, but probably this VM got latest OS update (fall creators update).
Yesterday I was able to connect via RDP normally.
Thank you

I am setting up a test VMware ESXi 6.5 environment via VMware Workstation.
I configured a ESXi host.
Initial setup for vSwitch0 is set for DHCP and obtains an IP address from my ISP server.

ISP vSwitch0
On my other VMs in VMWare Workstation I have 2 NICs on each machine:  Internal (10.1.1.x) & External (DHCP from ISP).

All my machines can communicate with each other except for this ESXi Host, via the Internal NIC.

I am having problems configuring a 2nd NIC for Internal use only.   Meaning there is no GW needed.  My internal network has no Gateway, because it is just within this private network.

How do I setup a second NIC on the ESXi host, so it can communicate with my internal VMs?

Thanks
