alert on adapter instance collection state

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

I have has several instances where the collection status of several vcenter and vsan (no the same ones at the same time) have went into a starting state with a collection status of not receiving. to fix this i start and stop the collection.


This does not seem to be generating errors. Is there a way to send an alert when a collection state is not "Data Receiving" I could then maybe send this to vRO and start a workflow to API restart it.


I cant seem to find a metric or property for this.

VMWare vSphere Client 6.7 - Web Console - Missing Keyboard Characters

VMware Community - Pi, 04/24/2020 - 11:01

We are running 6.7 vSphere Client - launched in HTML5 mode (in Chrome)  and when we launch Web Console for a VM we always have trouble with missing keyboard keys like "\"  @ etc..

Most of our VMs are Windows servers 2012 and upwards - all set for UK lamguage/keyboards

I understand this was a problem with version 6.5 - is it still there in 6.7 - anyone know the cause or a workaround please?


Many thanks

VM occasionally resumes to grey screen

VMware Community - Pi, 04/24/2020 - 10:17

Fusion Technology Preview 20H1, 15468164


Windows Version 2004, 19041.207


Most of the time, works really well, but sometimes, after the VM was suspended, it just resumes to a grey screen. The VM appears to run (so it could be some interaction problem between the Fusion UI and vmware-vmx?); I just can't see it. Asking the VM to restart (safely) also doesn't appear to do anything. Asking it to reset (unsafely) does work.


You can see in the log at 11:40:28 that it's resuming (but I could never interact at that point). I think at 11:44:49 is the soft restart, which didn't seem to do anything, and at 11:45:10 is the hard reset.

Host Profile - iSCSI issue

VMware Community - Pi, 04/24/2020 - 09:56



Strange issue with Host profiles. I have set a Discovery Target with a fixed LoginTimeout and DelayedAck disabled. The remediation completes, but does not apply the settings, so the compliance always shows as "Not Complaint".


It looks like it sets the value, but does not untick "inherited from parent"


Any ideas please?

iOS purchased app - pending check

VMware Community - Pi, 04/24/2020 - 08:03

I've a purchased app which already shows new version in the app store (Apple Business Manager).

But on my iPhone I still see the older version, it tells me to download new version from app store. But app store is hidden for the iPhones.

They get the apps via VPP from Workspace One. But in Workspace One I still see "pending check".

I have no chance to force update. I only can activate "auto update" but still see "pending check".

Upgrading vCloud Director

VMware Community - Pi, 04/24/2020 - 07:57



I have a soon to be production environment with vCloud Director 10.0 and NSX-v, vSphere 6.7. After a local webinar about new things in vCloud Director 10.1 I thought of upgrade to version 10.1 and NSX-T before I will ship this infrastructure to production use. Firstly, I've tried to upgrade my vCloud cell, then NSX. I've tried to follow this guide , but instead of local download I've used remote repo. Update successfully downloaded and installed. Upgraded DB without any errors, but after reboot, my updated vCloud Director can't connect to vSphere, that was already registered and worked in previous version. I reverted to a snapshot, checked, that old version is working without any issues and tried to upgrade again without any success.

Is upgrading to this version broken or it is well-known behavior of an upgrade process? Is my only option here is migration to a new cell?

What is RDSH App Session Pre-Launch feature in Horizon 7.3 & later?

VMware Community - Pi, 04/24/2020 - 07:21

Application Session Pre-Launch feature greatly reduces the application launch time for end users.


Generally when user launches any RDSH application, Horizon client establishes the session with backend RDSH application with a message "Connection server is preparing your application" and then launches the application from it. This usually takes some time to load the application (Mostly under a minute or so).


With session pre-launch feature, Horizon client launches the session to RDSH application (Not application itself just session) even before user actually launches the application from Horizon client. So initial connection process is already done by the time user actually launches the application.


  • What does it mean?
  • Will it open Applications automatically for user?
  • How does it work exactly?
  • Does this work in cloud pod architecture?


To explore all these questions, we will setup RDS Farm settings and an application pool in Horizon with session pre-launch option set to enabled and Horizon client settings. By the way, I am using Horizon 7.7 in my test lab.


See detailed information at https://blogs.virtualmaestro.in/2020/04/23/what-is-rdsh-session-pre-launch-feature-in-horizon-7-3-later/

Quickest and easiest steps to take for upgrading / migrating VCSA-HA to the latest version?

VMware Community - Pi, 04/24/2020 - 05:11

Hi All,


I need the quickest and the easiest way to patch Center appliance (VCSA) that is configured with High Availability (HA).

Since there are three VM nodes (Active, Passive and Witness).


  1. Create a VM snapshot on the Active VCSA-HA node and note down the existing ESXi server hosting it.
  2. Connect to the Active VCSA via Putty, then issue destroy-vcha -F command to destroy/dissolve the VCHA.
  3. Delete both Passive & Witness VCSA nodes.
  4. Follow your steps defined in https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-vSphere/6.7/com.vmware.vcenter.upgrade.doc/GUID-C27CD7DF-AB52-4A77-A6A6-A966498D5CA0.html
  5. Once verified up and running, configure VCHA using: https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-vSphere/6.7/com.vmware.vsphere.avail.doc/GUID-5F7DAFB2-60BD-4C50-A7E5-29A319CBB714.html
  6. verify 3x VCSA-HA are up and running.


However, I got confused in the steps #4 between https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-vSphere/6.7/com.vmware.vsphere.avail.doc/GUID-10E2660C-B0AD-4C1C-AD87-24AB4F2B8995.html or https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-vSphere/6.7/com.vmware.vsphere.avail.doc/GUID-5F7DAFB2-60BD-4C50-A7E5-29A319CBB714.html


Any help and suggestion would be greatly appreciated.


Thank you in advance.

The CPU has been disabled by the guest operating system

VMware Community - Pi, 04/24/2020 - 04:41

I just created a VM on vsphere ESXI 6.50, then I installed the Ubuntu 18.04 LTS VM OS, and then I install and config the jitsi application for video confrence. After a few days, suddenly my OS could not be accessed, after I check the esxi side, it turns out there is a message "the CPU has been disabled by the guest operating system". after restart VM OS, the application is normal again.

Has anyone ever experienced an issue like me. ? because this incident is very disturbing and happened several times.


I attach the screen shoot message

standalone esxi host running ver 7.0.0

VMware Community - Pi, 04/24/2020 - 03:21

I have a mysterious Virtual Flash partition/disk that I cannot seem to get rid of.


It shows as 119 GB Virtual Flash, and is VMFSL (read only as well).


So I am unable to delete, and this host was on 6.7 prior to upgrade so not sure if it is the previous datastore which I was attempting to wipe and re-partition on the fresh v7.0.0 install.


Can someone help me recover this space?  Image attached
