    Let me try to explain better:

     

    No data re-sync was in place and vSAN datastore had around 55% free capacity

    A Host was attempted to be placed in MM with FDM

    Attempt was progressing for a couple of minutes after which I got the error about lack of available nodes/disks (This event still triggered Data re-synch process)

    My last post was posted before this same Data Re-Synch was completed hence why the reading was still at 80% used/20% free in case of additional host failure. Free space went up once Re-Sync completed.

     

    So to summarize placing a Host in MM with FDM is triggering a data re-synch but Host fails to enter in MM due to lack of space. The Data Re-Sync progresses even though the Host fails to enter in MM.

     

    I am interested to know why this is not working as MM with EA is not a risk I would like to take.

     

    Am pretty sure all hosts are running vSAN (not in vSAN MM) as think the vSAN datastore would go down in storage size if that was the case.(stand to be corrected here but will anyway try the command you suggested to double check)

     

    Thanks

    Hello beezleinc,

     

    I determined a likely cause for this issue today - if the VMs have the same uuid.bios parameters they will appear as per your screenshot as vSAN Health/Monitoring has dependencies on this variable and thinks that the Objects associated with all subsequent VMs with identical parameters belong to the initial VM.

    On vSAN or otherwise (unless some element strictly relies on it), best practice is to deploy/clone/create VMs with unique IDs - this can be configured based on the solution (e.g. vCloud Director), in the vmx configuration and other ways. But in your case if you just want this to display properly then manually change the uuid.bios parameters of the VMs vmx to be unique (or re-deploy/clone the VMs putting in place measures that they are deployed with unique uuid.bios).

    Hi

    My "old" HP Server need(ed) an USB 3.0 Card for external Stuff to run in a VM.

    I read many Treads and Posts and bought an USB 3.0 Card with the FL1100 Chipset.

     

    My ESXi why run temporary on an IBM Machine show me:

     

    FL1100 USB 3.0 Host Controller

     

     

    ID

    0000:19:00.0

     

    Device ID

    0x1100

     

    Vendor ID

    0x1b73

     

    Function

    0x0

     

    Bus

    0x19

     

     

    Vendor Name

    Fresco Logic

     

    Class ID

    0xc03

     

    Subdevice ID

    0x1100

     

    Subvendor ID

    0x1b73

     

    Slot

    0x0

     

     

    So everythink should work?

     

    I have a other Card inside who need any external Power to who use the ASM1142 - ASMedia Chipset.

    Does Chipset dont show up. So the is unsupported?

    Thanks

    I just installed a trial version of Fusion 11 from Fusion 10,  I am able to run Windows 10 well within Fusion 11.  However, when I restarted my Macbook Pro (2017 running Mojave) to directly launch the Bootcamp partition, I received a blue screen error, with the code Inaccessible Boot Device error.  In summary, I only get that error message when launching Bootcamp on restart, but that same partition works fine when i open it in Fusion.  How can I repair the BootCamp partition so that I can launch it natively on the Macbook Pro when necessary?  Thank you in advance for help on this!

    Retrieving Storage Policy of a VM with vRO | Cody Hosterman

    Hi,


    We have a weird issue that I can't figure out

     

    We have a 2 node vSAN cluster and a witness server all on the same layer 2 network for management/witness traffic

     

    The 2 nodes also have direct connect 10G for vSAN data (WTS has been implemented)

     

    Everything is working and healthy but if I put 1 node into maintenance mode and disconnect the management NICs (not even vSAN data as that is DC) (we were doing switch maintenance)

     

    The VMs on the other node fail and VMware says connectivity to storage lost...

     

    Any ideas?

     

    I logged a ticket to VMware and they can't figure it out yet...

    Dear Expert,

     

    SSO log in failure.(give error code 503)

     

    Root log in  is fine.

     

    Support give guide t re-deploy a new VCenter server. he said the appliance was crashed.

     

    problem is it is not available on local site to access system. I have to remote the system by Teamviewer. (the internet for that site is very poor due to the system is built on vessel with very small

    satellite system)

     

    There are total 6 Vms in the inventory and in running.

     

    I am afraid of the re-deploy will affect the running VMs. and locally access to be needed.

     

    I deployed  VCenter server appliance about two years ago.  And the procedure  is so clear to me.

     

    please give advice the deploy guide. (better for some practical experience)

     

    tks n brgds

    Hello everyone

     

    I am deploying NSX-T 2.4.1.  I reached the point that I can deploy my first Tier-0 router in active/active mode, I am confused about whether to deploy

    a Tier-0 Router or a Tier-0 Gateway.

     

    On page 386 of the NSX-T Data Center Admin guide, the steps are the following

     

    A tier-0 logical router provides a gateway service between the logical and physical network

     

    2 Select Advanced Networking & Security>Routers > Rout ers > Add.

    3 Select Tier-0 Router from the drop-down menu.

     

     

     

     

     

     

    On page 13, deploying Tier 0 Gateways

     

    A tier-0 gateway performs the functions of a tier-0 logical router. It processes traffic between the logical

    and physical networks

    1 From your browser, log in with admin privileges to an NSX Manager at https://<nsx-manager-ipaddress>.

    2 Select Networking > Tier-0 Gateways.

    3 Click Add Tier-0 Gateway.

     

     

     

     

    During the procedure to add the Tier-0 Gateway,  the process is requiring that I add a tag.  How have you all address Tags?

     

    Thanks in advance....

    Hi all,

     

    Let's say a VM with PFTT=1 that is currently registered to an ESXi at the P-Site in a VSAN Stretched Cluster. (SFTT can be anything, doesn't matter here).

    I understand that you will need at least the P-Site and the Witness-Site to be up before the VM can boot. In other words, you don't need to up the S-Site to boot this VM.

    This has been tested and shown to be true.

     

    I was also under the impression that with a VM with PFTT=0 and the Affinity* locked to the P-Site, you don't need neither the Witness-Site nor the S-Site to be up to boot this VM.

    *Remember if you set PFTT=0 you will be forced to pick the site affinity.

     

    However, when I tested this, this is shown to not to work. Error shown in the below screenshot/attachment when trying to boot such a VM.

    error.JPG

     

    Basically, I booted a P-Site ESXi, but left the Witness-Site and S-Site both powered off.

    Then, I login to the ESXi's Embedded Host Client, picked a VM that has a PFTT=0 and SFTT=0 Storage Policy that is registered to the ESXi, then tried to boot it, but it failed.

    This is strange, shouldn't this VM NOT have any witness components whatsoever? Why does it need the Witness-Site to come up just to boot? Any ideas?

    Entire VSAN Stretched Cluster environment is 6.7U1.

    Thanks!

    First of all you should know about that Re-Deploying VCSA do not affect to the other VMs, So you can do it without any problem.

    But please tell me what's the version of your vCenter? can you open https://vcsa_IP_addr:5480 to manage your appliance or this page also gives you similar error as you mentioned?

    for last question did you install it in embedded mode or external? what's the situation of Platform Service Controller services?

    Do you have SSH access to your vCenter Server ?

    I've just upgrade my systems to Linux Mint 19.1 and Workstation 15 Pro and I'm seeing a very odd behavior.

     

    My host is Linux Mint 19.1 MATE (Tessa).

     

    On it, I'm running VMware Workstation 15 Pro (Version 15.1.0 build 13591040).

     

    And in it, I'm running a virtual with Linux Mint 19.1 MATE (Tessa).

     

    This is a dual monitor configuration, and if I display the Linux virtual in Workstation Pro, set it to full screen, cycle multiple monitors, and set the virtual to exclusive mode, the Linux virtual takes over the full display, just as if I were running it on the hardware directly, which is what I want,

     

    except:

     

    The right-mouse button context menu on the desktop only works on the left-hand monitor, it does not on the right.

     

    I've tried installing the VMWare Tools from Workstation Pro's virtual ISO (VM=>Reinstall VMware Tools) and I've tried installing the open-vm-tools package (apt install open-vm-tools - version 2:10.3.10-1-ubuntu.18.04.1 amd63), and they both display the same behavior.

     

    I did not see this with Linux 17.3 and Workstation 12 Pro.

     

    It's a minor issue, but I thought I should report it.

    Hi,

     

    They are exactly the same. Terminology was changed in version 2.4 and the release of the simplified UI. The old naming is still used in the manager UI.

    Thanks Lucd for the script.

    Now seeing a strange issue.

    Got 3 diplay names in Owner field and department name is fetched for only 1 VM.

    For remaining 2 VMs it doesn't fetch the department name.

    I have verified that there are no spaces in ending or starting of Owner Field.

    In AD I can able to see the department name for those 2 display names.

    The users of Dell printers often have a high possibility of coming across the error code 077-900. The users can easily solve this issue using the steps given below:

    • The users must start by removing all the cables that are connected with the printer.
    • Now open the rear access panel of your printer, and check whether there is any paper or any kind of debris that is jammed inside the printer.
    • If you do find any such thing, then manually remove it carefully without causing any damage.
    • It is also advised that the users clean the feed roller for your printer.
    • Also, ensure that you boot your device in the customer mode to be able to run the Manual Feed Test.
    • If you still hear any irregular sound, then replace the paper tray.
    • Finally, close the access panel, reconnect the USB and Ethernet cables and then given a test page command.

    If there is some issue which you are facing while following the steps mentioned, then the users can promptly connect with Dell Online Support. By doing so, you would get all the required assistance.

    Hi guys,

     

    I know we can set data collecting time intervals by using "configclient.py" in the system shell. But I need to set my favorite time clock for collecting data from vRA and vCenter. Can you give me a clue, please?

    BTW, I couldn't find any document or guide around internet for this configclient parameters! For example there is a dc.vc.backdate.days=1 in the configuration which I don't know what it is! Is there anyone to help?

     

    Thanks,

    Can you try Get-Cluster <Clustername> | get-vm

    Do you also get the same exception when you

     

    Get-VM-Location $cluster

    Tag is not required. I know the UI is a bit confusing there. If you want to use tagging on your objects, “tag” is required while “scope” is optional. That’s what it’s trying to tell you there.

    What is/are the name(s) for the VM(s) for which you see multiple values in the Owner field?

    A VM registered on a host does not necessarily  mean the (only) data component resides on that hosts storage - please validate that is the case here.

    Check and share the 'reason' messages on the far right of both fail power-on, might make more sense.

    That makes sense, I was focussing on VMs and hosts, not on ESXi installs. Do you (or anyone else) have any input on the experience with this kind of setup ?

    It seems to be there is some typo in my previous post.

     

    I got 10 VM Names.

     

    Out of 10, 7 VMs are having SAMAccount Name & Department name is populating for those VMs.

     

    Out of 10, 3 VMs are having DisplayName in Owner Filed.

     

    Out of which the 1 VM which is having Display Name is having the Department Name populated.

     

    Remaining 2 VMs are also having Display Name but Department name is not populated.

     

    I have verified for those 2 VMs and there were no spaces.

    What does the following return for the VMs where the Dept name is missing?

    Replace the <VM name> with the Displayname of those VMs.

     

    Get-ADUser-Filter "DisplayName -eq '<VM name>'"

  • 07/22/19--00:13: Cross vCenter vMotion
  • guten Tag,

     

    wir haben vor einigen Wochen eine neue ESXi Umgebung aufgesetzt und alles soweit eingerichtet. Nach einigen Anpassungen auf der Firewall können wir inzwischen auch ausgeschaltete VMs vom alten Konstrukt ins neue migrieren. Wenn wir aber versuchen angeschaltete VMs zu migrieren erhalten wir Fehlermeldungen. Beim Quell vCenter geht der Balken bis 45% und bricht dann ab. Im Ziel vCenter bleibt er bei Null %. Der Fehler lautet:
    "The destination host did not receive data from the source host on the vMotion network"

    vmkping vom Zielhost ins auf die vMotion IP des Quellhosts schlägt fehlt, weshalb ich zuerst ein Firewall/Netzwerk Problem vermutet habe. Wenn ich aber einen normalen Windows Rechner ins neue vMotion Netz (gleiche Portgruppe usw.) hänge dann lässt sich dieser pingen.

     

    Das Konstrukt ist wie folgt:

    -getrennter Storage

    -dvSwitch Quelle und Ziel 6.0 wegen Kompatibilität

    -Einstellungen auf dem dvSwitch identisch

    -altes vCenter 6.5

    -altes ESXi gemischt von 5.5 - 6.5 über versch. Cluster

    -neues vCenter 6.7

    -neues ESXi 6.7

    -neues Management Netz, altes Management Netz, neues vMotion Netz und altes vMotion Netz sind jeweils unterschiedliche VLANs.

    ->beide Management Netze können in beide vMotion Netze und untereinander funken
    ->die vMotion Netze können sich untereinander sehen

    Wenn ihr mehr Infos braucht dann liefere ich die gern nach.

     

    Vielen Dank und Gruß

    Iam a VMware Partner.

     

    We have customers with ROBO (the normal one and not the HCI Robo). Every customer have one HQ with normal vSphere licensing which means vCenter Standard and ESXi. This can be an Accelerator Kit or normal single licensing or a combination of both because the upgrade path of a Ess+ is a Accel. Kit.

     

    If there is something different in the HCI world... i dont know. I have scrolled through my SKU list and read the descriptions and found nothing.

     

    Regards

    Just tried to upgrade to 1903 but windows itself tells me, that there are problems with Workstation 14.

     

    Is that problem still not solved?

    Should that be really the only so called "solution" to upgrade to a new vmware workstation version?

    Looking at problems with newer linux kernels and their solutions, it looks as if the core of version 15 and 14 are quite similar.

     

    Everything worked for me with version 14, so why should i be forced to upgrade?

    Wasn't there written something about Windows 10 compatible?

    Thanks a lot LucD, you have been my saviour...

    i was able to make many of the tasks to run in parallel. But, i am facing issue in executing "Invoke-vmscript".

     

    I have a custom function to execute multiple tasks using invoke-vmscript. the problem here is,

    when i execute the custom script as a Job, only the 1st call of "invoke-vmscript" gets executed. Rest are not..

    Andre, First of all thank you very much for your reply.

    AND yes you are absolutely correct that windows 2008r2 std has 4vCPU and 32 GB RAM limits.

  • 07/22/19--00:48: Cross vCenter vMotion
  • Hi,

     

    a few weeks ago we installed a new ESXi environment and everything is ready. After some adjustments on the firewall we can now migrate switched off VMs from the old construct to the new one. But if we try to migrate running VMs we get error messages. At the source vCenter the bar goes up to 45% and then breaks down. In the target vCenter, it stays at zero %. The error is:

    "The destination host did not receive data from the source host on the vMotion network"

     

    vmkping from the target host to the vMotion IP of the source host is missing, so I first suspected a firewall/network problem. But if I put a normal Windows computer into the new vMotion network (same port group etc.) it can be pinged.

     

    The construct is as follows:

    -separated storage

    -dvSwitch source and target 6.0 because of compatibility

    -settings on the dvSwitch are identical.

    -old vCenter 6.5

    -old ESXi mixed from 5.5 - 6.5 via different vCenter 6.5 Cluster

    -new vCenter 6.7

    -new ESXi 6.7

    -new management network, old management network, new vMotion network and old vMotion network are all different VLANs.

    ->Both management networks can radio into both vMotion networks and among each other.

    ->the vMotion networks can see each other

     

    If you need more information, I'll be happy to deliver it.

     

    Many thanks and greetings

     

    Aaron

    I found the oneview is in the list.

    before that ,I have restart oneview vm and ov4vc.

    Hi Bob,

     

    That far right column is not 'Reason', but a 'Result' column. It's just a power-on failed message.

    I can 100% confirm that the PFTT=0 and SFTT=0 component of this VM resides in this very ESXi host in the P-Site because this is a 2-node VSAN 'Stretched cluster'.

    In other words, this is the only ESXi host on the P-Site in this cluster.

    As I said, even though the Witness-Site and the S-Site ESXi are both powered-off, I expected a PFTT=0 and SFTT=0 VM registered and "affinity" at the P-Site ESXi to be able to boot on its own.

    I hope I'm understanding this correctly.

    Hi,

     

    I believe that all products have their shortcomings, it is just the nature of the beast.

     

    Re. solution that I remembered that was in the thread - without rereading it all, as I'm afraid I don't have the time.

    There where participants that had contacted VMware support which had reset their keyboard settings and profiles.

     

    Eg. in the menu: Virtual Machine -> Settings -> Keyboard & mouse ->

     

    Select a windows profile .. try restoring defaults...

     

    Sorry can't remember the exact details, but try switching keyboard profiles. Perhaps create a new profile.
