• Hi James,

        Is there any specific reason where desktop files/icons not showing when users login to other computers, what we have learnt is that we go to onedrive- go to settings - backup - manage backup - start backup. once we do that desktop/files and icons comes back. we have apply all the GPO that you have recomended. Kindly please help.

  • Most commercial backup programs don't support ESXi Free. In the past Trilead VM Explorer could do the job, but that doesn't exist any more. One free option still available is GhettoVCB.

  • What would you recommend to use for backup in this case?

  • Another powershell statement uses this command

    Stop-Process -Name notepad

     

    But want to provide 'L' as the answer and continue to the next statement. Is it possible to select 'L' ?

  • did you ever find an answer for this it would be great if we could build a repository of offline LXP's then transfer when needed or if we could load the LXP into the packages section of an MDT server.

  • I am so close to having the alwayson device tunnels going.  However when I run the powershell VPN_Profile.ps1 script, I am hit with an error that reads:
    Unable to create AlwaysOn VPN profile: A general error occurred that is not covered by a more specific error code."

     

    Any ideas on this?

  • Excellent post Vladan, thought I had found an answer to by issue.

    We recently upgrade a 6.7 Windows based VC to 7.0.0.0 which appeared to go well, eventually. What we noticed a few days latter was that we could not hit :5480 for management. Everything else in VC is perfect except cant get to 5480. Opened a support case with VMWare and have been working it for a month now. Making no progress. I thought to myself, I would just migrate 7.0 to a new 7.0 appliance. Imagine my surprise when I found that you are not allowed to migrate same versions. I have, under VMWare's instruction, done an inpalce upgrade to 7.0.0b but this did not help.

    Any thoughts on how I can perform a 7.0 to 7.0 migration. Upgrade dosnt work as it is already the current version and a migration does not work as it is an appliance not a Windows server.

    Kind regards

  • Nice; there is some issue with 6.x version series , so when I upgraded from 5,x to 6.x it suddenly stopped copying between host and VM provided the text is longer(say 10000 lines) where as it used to work in 5.x

     

    I have downgraded it to 5.x , and things are working fine again.

     

    I hope, someone will face and resolve the issue from this comment.

     

     

    Thanks.

  • Great article, thanks.

    I have couple of questions,

    1. does redirection happens to ADFS (MFA) as soon as we entered vCenter FQDN on web browser? or  still we need to enter credentials on vCenter server login page and gets redirected to ADFS ?

    2. Can we still use administrator@vsphere.local account to login? How MFA is leveraged to login as SSO admin?

  • The older cpu bypass works to install esxi but then it refuses to apply patches later on. Also, many passthrough functionality is broken.

  • In case you don't want to specify the destination filename:

    If filename is part of the url, you could use

    $filename = [System.Uri]::UnescapeDataString((Split-Path -Leaf $strDownloadURL))

    (e.g. "Test%20123.pdf" --> "Test 123.pdf")

    If it's not: Use function "Get-RedirectedUrl" from https://stackoverflow.com/questions/25125818/powershell-invoke-webrequest-how-to-automatically-use-original-file-name/25127597#25127597

  • Thank you for this tutorial. I was wondering if it possible to execute this with a filter that chooses records with "AllStreams.End Time" greater than a certain date. 

    I would like to use this field as my date picker instead of the StartDate and EndData options.

    Thanks

  • Both are based on the same idea to provide recommended group policy settings, one for Windows Update and the other for security settings. But otherwise they are not related, execpt that they share a common script and have a similar name.

  • In the United States we are having a lot of racially charged discussions and the phrases white/blacklisting are getting a lot talk. I'd like to suggest using allow/deny listing as alternative for future articles.

  • How does the restoration process actually occur, does it go to a different location or back over the original source? What kind of granular control is provided during restoration? How does this work with a Team that has apps, bots and tabs added?
