    Hey all,


    I was looking for a method to put a vHost into maintenance mode, but first evacuating the VMs using DRS.  I am having some issues finding the terms for the second part.

    Hi Andy,


    Do you want to user DRS? or just move the vm?


    Here is a link to the Move-vm cmdlet.

    we have just put vra 7 in and we are building blue prints etc.  One issue i have is that when you connect to the server using rdp a rdp client is downloaded for you to connect.


    this is fine when i am in the office but remote users will use MS direct access so can only connect over the host name. is there a way of populating the rdp client with the server hostname rather than the ip address?

    Is your DRS set to automatic mode?
    If yes, the VMs should be vMotion-ed when you set the host to maintenance mode with the Set-VMHost cmdlet.


    If not, can you set the DRS mode temporarily to FyllyAutomated with the Set-Cluster cmdlet?




    if($cluster.DrsAutomationLevel -ne'FullyAutmated'){





    Or is it something completely different you want to do?

  • 03/02/17--12:14: VDI implementation
  • Hello,


    We have our main Head office in Egypt and branch offices in Dubai and Sharjah. Our management wants VDI solution implementation in such a way that there will be a centralized setup in head office (Egypt), they want to place at least 3 servers and storage in each branch office (Sharjah and Dubai). now there will be replication in between head office and branch offices and the user of branch offices can access the head office VDI in case if the branch office data center fails. The head office should have up to date copy on daily basis.

    Kindly guide what is the best scenario to achieve this goal.


    Thanks in advance.

    I have an SQL server running an application.  We also have a test environment SQL server, and every so often, we copy the database from live to test to test new things.  Currently, we have 2 SQL databases (live and test), and 2 web applications (live and test).  I'd like to consolidate the SQL servers down to 1, while still keeping the 2 web application servers.  Ultimately, I'd like to have the live DB/Log on a set of vmdks, and the test DB/Log on a set of vmdks that were cloned from live, instead of copied.


    I would like to find a way to run a script that will clone the DB/Log vmdks, mount the new cloned drives, and mount the SQL database from the cloned drives as DBName_Test.  Our test web application server would then be set to point to DBName_Test.


    My environment consists of a 6-host vSAN, so it's a vSAN datastore (no 3rd party SAN).  Also, due to the vsansparse file system, I'm not worried about keeping the snapshot around for a while.

    Did you ever get any answer to this?  We have the same problem but only with the web client.  I used to have issues doing stuff with AD nested groups, but I long ago changed all of thhe permissions around to specifically avoid any AD nested groups.  Just this past week though, I've had two instances where a user went to go use the web client, and they couldn't see any VM's in the VM and Templates view including the ones in their folder.  Another user with the exact same permissions set up albeit in a different admin group and applied to a different folder, had no issues whatsoever.  Very frustrating and annoying... It seems like the only sure fire way to deal with permissions in SSO and the Web Client is to individually define permissions for every user every where they need it instead of using groups.  One thing I haven't tried yet is creating SSO groups that contain my AD group's account members and using those to apply permissions.  I have a feeling it will work better but it's a lot of work to set up and will require manual work to maintain updated group memberships.

    It was not running by default.. i had to start it up. After putting sudo service apache2 start, it started up, but there is a warning:

    Could not reliably determine the server's fully qualified domain name, using "my DNS server IP address". Set the 'ServerName' directive globally to suppress this message.

    you can ignore that message.  are you able to authenticate now?

    Does anyone know of any other options as far as where the "Install the Horizon Client" Link takes users? Is it possible to send that hyperlink to a different URL?

    No, I can't start the openstack services from the vSphere web client by clicking "Start Openstack services".. See the attached screenshots.. if i try to stop, i get the "configuration error"..

    Also the horizon dashboard shows the maintenance portal.. So can't log in..

    What concerns me is why the controlPlane VM would stuck on the boot up.. Causing issues with services and "configuration error" with the deployment whereas it doesn't do that the first time i deployed VIO, again everything looked fine until i stopped/started VIO from vSphere web client.

    The login still works (using IE only though), but the latest version that's available on the portal is v3.0 from 2012.

    Hello. Thanks a lot for replying.

    I want the 2 VMs can connect with Internet and ping Host machine Windows 10 .

    I choose VMnet8 (NAT).


    I have checked my 2 VMs Settings > Hardware > Add > Hardware Type: There is no Virtual NIC. There is only Network Adapter.

    I assume your "Virtual NIC" is the same with "Network Adapter". The Network Adapter has 5 types of connection as below:

    1) Bridge

    2) Host-Only

    3) NAT

    4) Custom: VMnet0 to VMnet19

    5) LAN Segment


    In my old computer Windows 7 using VMPlayer 3.0, VMnet1 and VMnet8 come up in Windows 7 Network Sharing Center. I configure VMnet8 (NAT) easily to enable 2 VMs to communicate with each other in Windows 7.


    After I copied the 2 VMs into Windows 10 and use VMPlayer 12.5 or VMware Workstation Pro 12.5 in Windows 10, there is no VMnet1 and VMnet8 come up in Windows 10 Network sharing Center.

    I click on Windows 10 > Control Panel > Change Adapter Settings: You are not connected to any network.


    My questions are:

    1) How to have VMnet1 and VMnet8 come up in Windows 10 Network Sharing Center for configure 2 VMs to communicate ?

    2) Does "copying the 2 VMs into Windows 10 and don't create the 2 VMs originally in Windows 10" cause "VMnet1 and VMnet8 don't come up in Network sharing center" ?



    Thanks in advance.

    After vCD upgrade to 8.20 in our lab environment I can't access the new Tenant Portal.

    "Manage Firewall..." option direct to file not found page.


    "File not found. Firefox can't find the file at"


    I have added necessary rights to vCD according to

    1) How to have VMnet1 and VMnet8 come up in Windows 10 Network Sharing Center for configure 2 VMs to communicate ?

    As far as I know, they should be there when you install Player (or Workstation).  If those adapters are not there, I'd re-install VMware Player - and make sure you run the Installer "As Administrator".


    Copying / using existing created VMs should have no difference from creating brand new ones.  Think of virtual machines like Microsoft Word documents - you create them on one machine, and send/copy onto others.  Or just keep them on one machine.  Uninstalling Word then reinstalling it does nothing to your documents.  On a second computer, as long as a version of Word is installed which is new enough to recognize the document format/version, you will be able to open and read it.  Same thing with virtualization software to virtual machines.

  • 03/02/17--13:32: Re: vROps VMs added
  • There are metrics for total VMs and total running VMs at the datacenter and vCenter level.  Comparing the total VMs over time can give you and idea of how many were added, of course it will also decrease if VMs are deleted.  If you want to see only new/created VMs there isn't a metric for that.

    I just had to use PowerCLI, worked like a charm I might add.



    1. In PowerCLI, connect to the vCenter in question with the connect-viserver command
    2. Remove-VM -VM <VMName> -DeletePermanently -Confirm:0


    You can leave off the Confirm:0 part
