    Hi all,


    I am using a Dell PowerEdge 1950 with dual Xeon Quad Core 5450 and 32Gigs of RAM. I was trying to set up an MCSA lab in EXSi.


    When I tried to install Hyper-V role in Server 2016 I was getting the following error:



    I tried different methods to fix this issue like adding, several additional lines to the vmx file and restarting but still, I am stuck here.


    I could find different forums where people were able to work but I fail to do so. Also after adding lines and changing Virtualization to "Hardware, Software MMU", the VM says Intel EPT is not supported by the host.


    Could someone please help me out.


    Thanks in advance.

    Is it possible to retrieve VM's tags from VM Guest with vmtoolsd or vmware-toolbox-cmd like custom field ?

    In scope of a migration process, I was using vSphere Converter to convert some VM's from one to another hypervisor (ESXi 6.5). In that process I used special chars which is not advised (gave issue when trying to replicate them with VEEAM). In order to convert them, I stopped the VM, renamed it (actually converted it to the new name), checked the new VM and removed the old one.

    This worked fine for most VM's, but one had severe issues.

    When stopping the VM named "[DEV] fhml-srv019 Ubuntu Maarten" (Ubuntu 14.4 upgraded to 16.4) via the ESXi (6.5) gui with the stop button, it took quite long to shutdown. Actually the gui didn't show me that it was stopped. When I checked in Converter after a few minutes, I didn't see this VM at all! But I saw suddenly another (stopped) VM named "/vmfs/volumes/541abbb4-c091ccfe-7be6-40a8f02a99b8/Ubuntu Maarten dev/Ubuntu 14.04 vmx09_1.vmx". After a refresh the ESXi gui showed the same. This file didn't exist on the datastore! The folder had the name of the VM before the previous conversion!?! And in that folder only 1 file was present:

    [Roger@FHML-VM002:/vmfs/volumes/541abbb4-c091ccfe-7be6-40a8f02a99b8] ls "Ubuntu Maarten dev" -l

    total 104857600

    rw------ 1 root root 107374182400 Jul 19 06:46 Ubuntu 14.04 vmx09_1-flat.vmdk


    We were able to create a new VM (for development purposes) from a template and were able to restore the vmkd definition file (VMware Knowledge Base ). The vmdk flat file contained all information and was mounted, so all required data could copied to the new VM. So after some extra work no data was lost and work could continue within a few hours :-)


    But I'm a bit concerned as I don't have a clue what caused this issue (corrupting a VM when stopping it via ESXi) and have still some VM's to go. I couldn't find an answer when googling.

    Has anyone experienced this issue as well? Or has anyone an idea what could have caused this behaviour and how to prevent it?


    If you need more info, please let me know.

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    I am trying to make a demo app for Android in VS2017 on the following machine. CPU - i7-3840QM, 16GB DDR3 Ram, 512Gb SSD. VS is installed in virtual machine (Win2008R2 in VMWare Workstation 12). I have to wait up to hours till appearance of my Android app in Qemu. During all that time I see nothing but this picture in the guest OS Task Manager. How can I make it work faster?

    Yello folks,


    I currently have a simple infra set up

    1) 2 ESXi Host

    2) 1 Aruba 2930F switch

    3) 1 MSA 2050 SAN storage


    MSA is connected to both the ESXI host over ISCSI, vmotion, virtual machine all are configured on different VLAN.

    Everything works great.

    Now the thing is we are planning to provide redundancy at switch level. So planning to add one more Aruba 2930F and stack them.

    But i am not really sure on how to go about vmotion Config?

    1) Will i need two physical port on each server?

    2) I team those ports and distribute each port to on stack member and do LACP between those two pysical ports?


    Any help or document will be greatly appreciated.


    Best Regards,
