vCenter 7 Lifecycle Manager 404 and Errors when Using Externally Signed Machine SSL Cert

VMware Community - Pi, 04/24/2020 - 19:20

I upgraded to vSphere 7 in my lab environment and noticed a strange issue that causes Lifecycle Manager not to load and work within vCenter v7.


I was coming from a VCSA 6.7 install which had an externally signed SSL cert added to replace the Machine Cert in vCenter that way when I load vCenter in web browser, it doesn't complain about a self-signed certificate. Everything worked great.


When I updated to VCSA 7, the update wizard told me I must reset the certificates back to VCMA certs since something about trust blah blah blah. I followed the KB article it provided which brough my 6.7 back to using vCenter generated self-signed cert. I retried the update to v7 and it worked fine. After upgrade I replaced the Machine SSL certs with my externally signed certs (from Namecheap, domain specific, not wildcard) and vCenter v7 said it was changed successfully and it rebooted the appliance. I can now login to Web UI without annoying warnings, great.


However, if I click "Lifecycle Manager" in vCenter v7, I get a red bar that pops up over that section that loads that says Status 404 - Error and list a URL that has to do with Lifecycle Manager I guess. And below, nothing loads in Lifecycle Manager, clicking any of the buttons doesn't do anything, or just produces more errors like "An unexpected error has occurred". Similar result if I click "Updates" tab on a host of cluster. Nothing to do with LM loads or works. everything else in VC seems to work fine, including proper serving of the signed SSL cert in my web browser.


If I go back to Certificate Management and change the Machine SSL cert back to one generated by vCenter as self-signed, after reboot, Lifecycle Manager works again.


Any ideas? Obviously LM doesn't like something about the externally signed cert even though it works everywhere else.

Horizon UAG Local Network Access

VMware Community - Pi, 04/24/2020 - 17:26

I'm testing out a Horizon setup in my small business and am having an issue accessing the UAG from the FQDN within our office.


Here is my setup


Internet => Firewall => (NIC1 = [UAG] (NIC2 = => Connection Server (


Corporate network =

FQDN = remote.example.com (IP = 96.68.xx.xxx).


It resolves to the firewall (96.68.xx.xxx) and port forwards 443, 8443, and 4172 to (the external NIC1 on the UAG).


When I'm on the Internet (outside of the corporate internal network I can access the UAG by using https://remote.example.com.  The service works as expected  However, when I'm in the office behind the UAG and try to access https://remote.ecample.com I get ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT. Same is true when I try https://96.68.xx.xxx from inside the corporate network.


I've installed a signed TLS Server Certificate on the "Internet Interface".  It works as expected from a remote location.  I can ping remote.example.com from the office and it resolves to the static IP assigned to the firewall.  So traffic is routing correctly from the internal network to the external IP of the UAG (The public static on the firewall that is port forwarded to the UAG).


When I try curl from inside the corporate network I get the following:


curl https://remote.example.com

curl: (7) Failed to connect to remote.example.com port 443: Timed out


When I try (The internal NIC2 of the UAG) from inside the corporate network I'm able to access the Horizon Login page....


Why in the world can't I access the Horizon login page from inside the corporate network when I use https://remote.example.com?  I've spent HOURS trouble shooting.

How would one deploy a NSX-T overlay network on one host in location A, bridged with an NSX-T overlay network on a different one in location B, while they are on the same vCenter. (or alternative way)

VMware Community - Pi, 04/24/2020 - 17:14



Currently the above I have not set up yet, but I'd like to know what my options are of making this work.


I currently have one NSX-T Manager deployed and NSX-T configured on one host, the other host is still untouched. (so the second overlay network has not been made yet.)

What would the best way be to achieve bridging two NSX-T overlay networks together that are on different hosts?


If anyone has ideas on how to do this, please let me know. I have left the remote host untouched and will try what the best option would be to continue with this idea.


The NSX-T version is 3.0 and the hosts are both vSphere 7.

VM missing disks

VMware Community - Pi, 04/24/2020 - 16:35


I have a 2012 R2 server that I was doing some work on and did a reboot and received the dreaded Windows failed to start message. The virtual is running on Client version: 1.21.0


Client build number: 5724747


ESXi version: 6.5.0


ESXi build number: 5969303


So I proceeded to boot to CD and run diskpart to check the drives and received the message "no disks found". I checked BIOS and all of the drives are showing in BIOS, in the console all the drives are showing with their vmdk files for them. I have tried to research the issue but have not had luck with any of the suggestions. This is my SCCM server and it would be a tragic if we had to rebuild this machine. Any help would be grateful, thank you.

HoK token for accessing vRO via REST call [powershell]

VMware Community - Pi, 04/24/2020 - 16:11


i am having difficulties sending REST query to vRO , (8.1) . On the


it is written that:

Single Sign-On Authentication

If Orchestrator is configured with the vCenter Single Sign-On (SSO) server, you need a principal holder-of-key (HoK) token to access system objects in Orchestrator through the REST API.

The HoK token is passed as a request Authorization header element. The value must be gzip, base64
encoded string.

So in my understanding i should add the Authorization header:

    $header = @{'Content-Type'= 'application/json';'Authorization' = $encodedANDgzippedtoken }

    Invoke-WebRequest -Uri 'https://vro816.greg.labs:443/vco/api/org/{id}/workflows?maxResult=3&queryCount=false' -Headers $header


So  i have obtained the HoK token utilizing for this moment SDK examples :



Function ConvertTo-GZipString () {






     Process {

      $String | ForEach-Object {

        $ms = New-Object System.IO.MemoryStream

        $cs = New-Object System.IO.Compression.GZipStream($ms, [System.IO.Compression.CompressionMode]::Compress)

        $sw = New-Object System.IO.StreamWriter($cs)

    $certificatetobeadded = New-Object System.Security.Cryptography.X509Certificates.X509Certificate2




        [System.Net.ServicePointManager]::SecurityProtocol = [System.Net.SecurityProtocolType]::Tls11 -bor [System.Net.SecurityProtocolType]::Tls12;






        $signingCertificate = New-Object System.Security.Cryptography.X509Certificates.X509Certificate2




        $service = [VMware.Binding.WsTrust.SamlTokenHelper]::GetSTSService('https://vc001.greg.labs:7444/sts/STSService','administrator@vsphere.local','VMware1!',$signingCertificate)



        $token = [VMware.Binding.WsTrust.SamlTokenHelper]::GetHokRequestSecurityTokenType()

        $token.SignatureAlgorithm = [vmware.sso.SignatureAlgorithmEnum]::httpwwww3org200104xmldsigmorersasha256

        $response = $service.Issue($token)


        $responsetoken =  $response.RequestSecurityTokenResponse.RequestedSecurityToken

        #This part has to be gziped and into base64


        $responsetokenInsideXML = $responsetoken.InnerXml -replace "\r?\n"

        $encodedANDgzippedtoken = ConvertTo-GZipString -String $responsetokenInsideXML



        $header = @{'Content-Type'= 'application/json';'Authorization' = $encodedANDgzippedtoken }

        Invoke-WebRequest -Uri 'https://vro816.greg.labs:443/vco/api/org/{id}/workflows?maxResult=3&queryCount=false' -Headers $header


    and i end up with bad request

PS C:\Users\Grzesiek>     Invoke-WebRequest -Uri 'https://vro816.greg.labs:443/vco/api/org/{id}/workflows?maxResult=3&queryCount=false' -Headers $header

Invoke-WebRequest : Created with Sketch.



At line:1 char:5

+     Invoke-WebRequest -Uri 'https://vro816.greg.labs:443/vco/api/org/ ...

its the same if i would use curl, same 500 response.


my response token is:

in that post he wrote :


Here's a snippet of perl code I use. I take everything between <saml2:Assertion> and </saml2:Assertion>, not including those tags and call that $token.


Then I:


gzip \$token => \$gzipped;

$encoded = encode_base64($gzipped);

$encoded =~ s/\n//g;


$restClient->addHeader('Authorization',   'SIGN token="' . $encoded . '", nonce="' . $nonce . '", signature_alg="RSA-SHA256",' . ' signature="' . $sig . '"');



so thats why i have removed this assertion  as well.

I did tests with , and without . Still the same result. Also same result if i would be removing new lines or not.


Can anybody point me in right direction ?


I also did a version like the person mentioned in his post:

not sure if thats how its supposed to be , if it is not outdated , person wrote this in 2015.


$response = $service.Issue($token)



$responsetoken =  $response.RequestSecurityTokenResponse.RequestedSecurityToken

#This part has to be gziped and into base64



#$responsetokenInsideXML = $responsetoken.InnerXml

$responsetokenInsideXML = $responsetoken.InnerXml -replace "\r?\n"

$sig = $responsetoken.Signature.SignatureValue.Replace("`n","")

$encodedANDgzipped = ConvertTo-GZipString -String $responsetokenInsideXML

$nonce =  '143210500:asdfsd'

#$restClient->addHeader('Authorization',   'SIGN token="' . $encoded . '", nonce="' . $nonce . '", signature_alg="RSA-SHA256",' . ' signature="' . $sig . '"');

$headervalue = 'SIGN token="{0}", nonce="{1}", signature_alg="RSA-SHA256", signature="{2}" ' -f $encodedANDgzipped,$nonce,$sig


$header = @{'Authorization' = $headervalue}


Invoke-WebRequest -Uri 'https://vro816.greg.labs:443/vco/api/org/{id}/workflows?maxResult=3&queryCount=false' -Headers $header


but this is also failing. as you can see i have used his format for the Authorization headers SIGN token, nonce, sig alg, sig.


I am really out of ideas.

When i read literally the documentation on the vro page, it does not mention to do any sign token, sig, etc ..

it is written, paste the gzipped/base64 HoK. So if i am on the same page, if the HoK is just XML that i pasted, i have to gzip it/base64, and then put this into the Authorization header, then what am i doing wrong  ?

Any ideas ?


Thank you all in advance for any hints.

Teams backgrounds with View and PCoIP Zero Client

VMware Community - Pi, 04/24/2020 - 15:35



i have a Windows 10 VM with 16 GB, 4 vCPU of a Xeon Silver 4110 CPU and via vDGA a Nvidia Tesla P4 GPU.


I'm using a Fujitsu Futro L620 PCoIP Zero Client, which has a Tera 2140 with 2 monitors at 2560x1600.


The Horizon View Agent is the latest and i have USB Passthrough enabled.


At the Zero Client i have a Microsoft LifeCam HD-3000 USB cam connected, this Webcam works without problems. I see the camera directly as a USB device and the driver for this is installed in the VM.


For using the speaker and microphone connectors of the Zero Client i have installed the Teradici audio drivers, this is working without problems too.


The only problem i have: I'm not able to activate my own backgrounds in Teams. I can only use background blur.


Is it possible that Teams disable that feature because i'm in a VDI session?


Or where can be the problem?


Is there something else i can optimize?


Kind regards

I am struggling with the basic network configuration for a simple nested lab environment for personal use. I am hoping someone can please point me in the right direction..



My setup is as follows:-



Single PC, 64GB ram

1 x Virtual esxi 6.7 install, inside of which I have created:-

1 x VM (fw appliance)



Steps so far:-



Installed VM Workstation. Added vmnet2, host-only. Configured vmnet2 nic on my pc with



Installed esxi 6.7 inside workstation and I have gained access to the esxi environment via the browser on my workstation ( I presume I can access this IP from my workstation because the vmnet8 connection type is set to NAT?



From the esxi client browser I created the FW appliance VM and assigned a management IP of during the install. When I view the network settings from esxi the default nic config is applied (Network Adapter 1, type VMXNET 2 (Enhanced)).



The issue I have is that I cannot ping from my workstation ( therefore i cannot remotely manage the fw VM via my pc browser.





I am not fully understanding what is required in network terms to allow my workstation access to the FW VM inside esxi.

Do I need to add a network adapter from within Workstation, esxi VM, or both?

VDI VM Background Blur in Teams Meetings

VMware Community - Pi, 04/24/2020 - 15:10
Blurring Hardware for Modern PCs

Announced in July 2018 along with the free version of Teams, users can blur the background of video calls. The feature is now generally available. However, the technology to perform face recognition to identify the person and understand where the background to be blurred begins and ends only runs on reasonably recent PC equipped with Advanced Vector Extension 2 (AVX2) graphics. AVX2 is what Teams uses to blur the background after it figures out where the user is.

AVX2 is supported by PCs that have a post-Haswell chipset. Blurring works on my Surface Book 2, but doesn’t on my HP Envy 17 of 2014 vintage. Be aware that the CPU has some processing to do to locate a face and blur the background, so it can impact other work on the PC if you run a loaded system.

Background blur is supported in the Teams desktop client for Windows and Mac, but not in the Linux or browser clients.

For more information about the hardware requirements for blurring, see the note in hardware requirements for Microsoft Teams. More detailed information for Windows PC is in hardware decoder and encoder driver recommendations.


The optional Blur my background video effect requires a processor with Advanced Vector Extensions 2 (AVX2) support. See Hardware decoder and encoder driver recommendations for a list of unsupported decoders and encoders.



My VM users do not have the option to blur their background in Microsoft Teams is there any way to get this to work? somewhere in the VM setting? View settings?
