I have a vcenter cluster of 12 ESX hosts (ClusterA) and another cluster of 3 ESX hosts (ClusterB). All of these are a mix of poweredge r620s and r630s.
Some of the hosts have hardware errors that can be seen in the iDRAC logs and front LCD screen such as:
- CPU machine check error
- Correctable memory error rate exceeded As expected, this is causing those hosts to be unavailable (Not responding) in the clus ...

I have a bare metal server running vSphere/ESXi 7.0 U3d, and a bare metal NAS running TrueNAS Core 13.0. The NAS has a single pool shared via iSCSI; the pool is running all defaults (lz4 compression+SHA512, no dedup, 128kb record size). For setup purposes, the shares are wide open with no security restrictions. The machines are connected to the same switch and are on the same VLAN, and can communicate f ...

I'm trying to move all my persistent volumes from vSphere to NFS, I managed to do it for many applications that use
Deployment kind. All I have to do is:
- Mount the NFS volume to a different path (
- Copy the data from vSphere volume to NFS volume (using
cpcommand in the pod)
- Swap the volumes names in
Deploymentdefinition and finally get rid of the vSphere volume
Now, I have S ...
So I am new to vmware and used vmware workstation to install ESXI 7 on my windows 10 pc. I am trying to create a test enviornment where I can have two vm's connect to the internet from my pc.
I did not use an external HD or CD/DVD when installing vmware.. is this why I am not seeing any device listed for my vmware devices.
How do I add a device to then create a datastore?
I have recently configured a vCenter Server to monitor our companies virtual machines, and would like to use the Windows Sessionauthentication. The vCenter is already joined to the AD Domain, and i can log in with my domain credentials no problem, but in order to use the Windows Session Authentication feature i need to download the "Enhanced Authentication Plugin", whenever i try to do so i get a certif ...
We are running vCenter7 to manage our virtual machine infrastructure, i am trying to set up backup verification with nakivos screenshot verification feature, however when the flash VM boot job recovers the VM i want to verify, the verification process always fails because the newly recovered vm doesn't automatically install/start vmware tools when being created. Is there a way to automate installation o ...

I have been looking for this all day but can not find an answer anywhere. We have vmware 7 with vmware horizon 7.
We have over 100 vm's running all the time. For 40 of those the users are not assigned but 40 users are assigned to a pool of vm's. So when they login they get assigned a random vm.
I was wondering if there is a way to shut down the vm's, and let them auto start when a user logs into hor ...
I'm currently using an environment lab for testing ESXi so I run nested ESX(two ESX are installed on ESX)
The problem is I was trying to install vCenter on both of my lab ESX and at the end of stage 1 of deploying vCenter, I got an error that says :

I was currently working on the ESXi lab and trying to do some work with it. So I have an ESXi that is running on a server and I installed 2 ESXi on it (two ESXi are running on the primary ESXi). The problem is after finishing installing 2 ESXi, none of them had a datastore. So I had to create a new VMFS. But I faced this problem: There is no device in the list so I can create anything!
I am at the point I really need some help to configure pfSense. I am getting no support from the IT and half of the time I am not sure things are not working because of me and my limited experience, or because the IT is not allowing them.

I'm trying to interpret the above performance chart from vCenter. The thing is, each of these clusters each has four servers each with 64GB of RAM for a total of 256GB per cluster. What confounds me is that the chart seems to indicate the cluster in red has:
(red-blue)/(total red memory)
utilization. Except the units of measurement are millions of KBs and in this case that would be roughly 360 mill ...
I have a vSphere 6.7 connected to an ESXi 6.5 server. Recently, I noticed the CPU utilization is always 100%. The process I am aware of "dbused" is consuming all of the CPU resources.
root@vcsa [ ~ ]# ps aux|grep dbused root 15520 146 0.0 2437200 6908 ? Ssl 15:09 0:55 dbused
What is that process? I tried to kill that but it resurrected again.
With custom TCP/IP stack, you get following benefits:
- Separate Memory Heap.
- Personalized ARP Table.
- Personalized Routing Table which helps avoiding routing table conflicts that might appear when many features are using a common TCP/IP stack.
- Isolate traffic to improve network security.
Playing with the custom TCP/IP stacks and wanted to find out how I can benefit from it but all I can do with ...
The ESXi's IPsec commands require the encryption/integrity keys be inputted in plaintext from the command line. This is not recommended security practice. The command line history is even logged to

vSphere 7 Update 1 added a new "vSphere Clustering Service (vCLS)" and according to the doc:
The basic architecture for the vCLS control plane consists of maximum 3 virtual machines (VM), also referred to as system or agent VMs which are placed on separate hosts in a cluster. These are lightweight agent VMs that form a cluster quorum. On smaller clusters with less than 3 hosts, th ...
We have a EPYC Rome 7502 host running vSphere v7.0.3, and for .net applications we're seeing a performance hit of around 50%, compared to the old host which is Xeon E5-2630.
The performance hit in the .net app is all CPU based.
CPUZ suggests the host should be faster for both single and multithreaded tasks.
According to VMWare's white paper we shouldn't have to do anything. It doesn't explain how to con ...
What is the canonical way to use VMware's
ovftool to query to see if a VM exists or not?

There is a virtual machine located at a machine, which I access through VMware vSphere Client.
- it has only 200 GB HDD which is quite a bit.
- it's connected to a domain and a lot of users are using it with domain accounts.
- it has old snapshots, because of licenses, which I cannot delete.
The issue is how do I extend that C: drive from 200 GB to something bigger by knowing that I cannot remove all the ...
we have Kafka cluster with RHEL 7.6 , all Kafka are VM machines
on one of the Kafka machines , we noticed that sdb disk became read only ( when sda is the OS disk )
mount | grep sdb /dev/sdb on /var/data/kafka_DB type ext4 (ro,noatime,data=ordered)
from my point of view its little strange that DISK VMDK became read only ( because its not mechanic disk )
from red-hat I find the following
