    DB:3.45:Virtual Machine Creation Stuck At 1.6 - Customize Virtual Machine, Windows Could Not Apply Unattend Settings During Pass [Specialized] s7




    Hello,
    I am currently working on a virtual machine manager server on SCVMM 2012 RTM version on a host cluster.

    Here's the deal: when I deploy a virtual machine connecting her to only a workgroup, the virtualization works perfectly. I can then access the virtual machine through the VMM console and join it to the domain using specific credentials.
    But when I try to let VMM join the machine to the domain directly after creation using my credentials in the VM template, the VM creation is stuck at 96% and the 1.6 step at 71%. When I go on the machine with the VMM console, I see an error message telling
    me Windows could not apply unattend settings during pass [specialized].
    Obviously I looked around on forums but I couldn't really understand the issue I'm facing.
    Thanks for any help in advance!

    I need to put together a strategy for backing up each virtual machine image file to a tape library. I would like to run a backup program on the host that first executes a command line to stop a particular virtual machine. Upon checking the command line error code for success, it would backup the VM image files to the tape library, then finish by executing a command line to restart the virtual machine.

    What is Nessus doing when it sees that the Mac Address of a remote machine is a VMWare Virtual Machine? It specifically has a policy to check for this.

    I don't know about Nessus. Are you installing a client in your VM that connects to a scanner? Or are black-box testing your VM? Since a VM in NAT mode is borrowing host networking a scanner like nmap or nessus should be seeing an OS X target. You could also be port-forwarding services on host ports to your guest VM, so a port scanner should be able to detect those.

    What is the definition of "remote" ... Remote is then only on the same physical LAN?

    As far as MAC address tracking goes yes, only on the physical LAN. MAC addresses are lost beyond your IP gateway. Any remote server will have their nearest IP gateway as the source MAC address for a TCP/IP connection as that is where those packets are coming from.

    The exception is, if you have a client/agent interrogating your VM and revealing MAC addresses in the data stream as part of a report.

    Hi,

    On Host 1, I have powered off the 'old' Virtual Machine incase it was holding onto some files. I then powered up my new virtual machine and it works! However, I then go to power on the 'old' Virtual Machine and this has the same error!!

    Hi guys

    Thanks for reading this

    I have Installed WIndows XP on the Virtual machine. The host machine is a Windows XP SP3 machine. I am not able to connect to the host computer from my host computer. The Internet is running through my USB Modem and it runs on the virtual machine too,

    I tried connecting by setting the network adapter on virtual machine to Bridged connection but no avail. an error message is shown that

    "The network bridge on device VMNet0 is temporarily down because the bridged Ethernet interface is down. The virtual machine may not be able to communicate with the host or other machines on your network".

    I also configured VMNet0 from the virtual network editor but still it is not working.

    Please help.

    If you mean you can't connect between your host and your guest, disable TCP Chimney on the host:

    Set the DWORD HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\DisableTaskOffload to "1" in the Registry editor.

    I tried connecting by setting the network adapter on virtual machine to Bridged connection but no avail. an error message is shown that

    "The network bridge on device VMNet0 is temporarily down because the bridged Ethernet interface is down. The virtual machine may not be able to

    communicate with the host or other machines on your network".

    Bridged networking depends on an active physical link.

    I also configured VMNet0 from the virtual network editor but still it is not working.

    That is the bridged network.

    So, if you do not have an active physical network, set the virtual NIC to "host-only". That is a virtual network switch which is available even if you do not have a physical network. Set the guest to use DHCP. If you haven't changed the default setup regarding networking that should work immediately.

    Hi everyone,

    I have enough space on my vmfs3 volume and there is no heavy workload inside virtual machines and esx host. My storage is also lightly loaded.

    I had a similar problem myself yesterday in my Dev lab. I had deleted a couple of guests and tried to recreate them but was told that I couldn't due to insufficient space in the datastore. When I checked the datastore, there was more than enough space to recreate the guests.

    I couldn't find anything to kill (with the limited knowledge that I have with linux), so I rebooted the ESX server. When it came back up, I was able to create the guests.

    I am hoping that someone else out there might be able to tell us what needs to be killed or restarted to remove the locks and release the disk space for use.

    IN progress I see disk creation and both VM configuration and .vhdx files on target disk, but after that I see The Operation has failed. An error occured creating a New Virtual Machine. Invalid Class.

    In fact I see virtual machine in Hyper-V Manager and it's fully functional, but not added to Failover Cluster Roles. When I use Configure Role - Virtual Machine to see eligible machines - it's not there.
    Cluster Validation says that everything is OK.

    Yes.
    Sorry about that.
    SCVMM has history of all events that SCVMM performs. The user that creates a VM is the 'owner' and so forth.

    When I try to create a new VM and I don't select the HA option I get the following error message when selecting the virtual machine host cluster node.
     
    You have selected a clustered host for placing a non-highly available virtual machine. Non-highly available virtual machines cannot be placed on a clustered host.
     
    Do you want to continue and make this virtual machine highly available? 
     
    If I click on No, it cancels the VM creation.
     
    Any Idea's
     
    Thanks

    DB:3.06:Adding A Non Ha Vm On A Cluster Node 1f

    This is possible through the Hyper-V Manager, this is not possivble through SCVMM.
     
    It is totally viable to take advantage of your host resources (on clustered hosts) and not wanting every single VM to be HA.

    - Virtual machine on 10.1.1.5 is powered on

    - Alarm 'vSphere HA virtual machine failover failed'

    - Resource allocation changed

    - This virtual machine is vSphere HA Protected and HA will attempt to restart it after a failure.

    I have installed a Virtual center server on a new machine after the crash of a previous one.

The log contains the error "login failed due to a bad username or password" !

    DB:3.01:Error Connecting Host To Datacenter 9f


    VC will try to connect to the Service Console of your ESX with the username you gave, and will try to create a user "vpxuser" and assign a password to that user (that it generates randomly and stores in the database).

    any of these steps might have failed:

    \- double check your root password (don't forget uppercase/lowercase and your keyboard layout - not everyone types US qwerty)

    \- check on the ESX host whether the vpxuser account exists (you can do that with the VI client, when directly connected to the host). If you're still having troubles adding this host to the VC inventory, delete the vpxuser account from the host manually. VC will recreate it when you retry "add host ..." afterwards.

    DB:3.01:Host And Virtual Machine(S) Networking as


    Hey there,

    I don't know much about your environment, nor do I know how much you know about networking, but there are a number of manual entries about this.

    If you're using bridged networking(this is what most people on a company network w/DHCP usually use), you set up shares just like you would on a physical system. This is not a how-to that we get into, because you need to know how to set up your shares for yourself. Here is a link to our Bridged Networking description, though:

    http://www.vmware.com/support/ws4/doc/network_bridged_ws.html#1061788

    If you're using NAT or Host-Only networking, then you've set up a "network in a box" and need to be able to resolve names inside of that network. If you're not familiar with setting up DNS, then there's some amount of learning to do there. Here's a link to our description of Host-Only Networking:

    http://www.vmware.com/support/ws4/doc/network_host_ws.html#1061835

    Getting an IP addressing scheme, avoiding packet leakage, and sharing files on a host-only or NAT network can be harder to set up, but on the VMware side, here are some links for you:

    IP addressing schemes:

    http://www.vmware.com/support/ws4/doc/network_select_ip_ws.html#1061951

    Hi @all,
    I've successfully installed and configured SCVMM 2008 RTM on Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V. But I have two issues regarding virtual disks:
     
    1. Create new virtual disks
    How to create a new virtual disk via SCVMM and store it into the Library? Maybe I'm too blind to see this. I cannot find a Create new virtual disk in SCVMM anymore. Any suggestions?
     
    2. Creating a virtual machine based on a template
    I have successfully created a hardware profile and a guest operating system profile in the library. Based on this two profiles I have successfully created a template. In that template I defined the Blank Disk - Small.vhd to be used as the IDE device at the primary channel.
    When I now right click the Template and choose New virtual machine the creation starts, a storage mini port driver is being installed on the host and then the creation fails at step 1.5 Install VM components and in the summary I see
    Error (13206)
    Virtual Machine Manager cannot locate the boot or system volume on virtual machine %machinename%. The resultig virtual machine might not start or operate properly.
     
    If I use a syspreped virtual hard disk instead, I works fine. But I want to use templates together with blank hard disks.
     
    How can I create a virtual machine based on a Template with an blank virtual hard disk?

    I am trying to create a VM from a VM template and I get error 13206 - Virtual Machine Manager cannot locate the boot or system volumen on virtual machine NewVMName.
    First, the current setup:
    Host OS: Windows Server 2012
    SCVMM: 2012 SP1
    The VM Template creation process:
    - Create a normal VM from SCVMM: Guest OS is Windows Server 2012 R2
    - Simple configuration of the guest OS (eg: regional settings, ...)
    - Disk within the VM is configured as Dynamic (has one simple partition that is System Reserved and another simple partition for the System (C:))
    - Sysprep the guest VM with Generalize and Shutdown options
    - Import the syspreped VHDX onto the SCVMM Library (making sure that the transfer is unencrypted)
    - Create the VM Template using imported VHDX (since this is SCVMM 2012 SP1, not R2, the option to select the VHD generation (1 or 2) is not provided)
    The VM creation from template process:
    - Create a VM from the template with the default values and ticking the box for the VM to start the virtual machine after deploying it on the host
    The Job process:
    - Create virtual machine = Completed
    - Deploy file (using LAN) = Completed
    - Change properties of virtual machine = Completed
    - Fix up differencing disks = Completed
    - Install VM components = Failed =Error 13206
    Some additional details:
    - Hyper-V integration services are not installed on the guest VM
    - Repeated the same procedure with both Dynamic and Fixed VHDX
    - Original VM was created with only 1 disk for boot drive (no additional disks)
    - Original VM does not have any roles or features configured
    - The VM Template does not make use of answer files nor is it configured to join the domain
    - Enabled SCVMM log tracing using Microsoftkb2913445 and searched the logs using the VHDX ID number - Not found

    Any help/guidance is greatly appreciated...

    I posted this under the wrong thread, so I am resubmitting it as a new thread.

    I have been trying to run 1.0.2 and 1.0.3 on RHEL4 U4, and every time I create a new virtual machine, during the virtual disk creation, the progress bar hangs around 30%, the memory utilization on the host computer (3GB) sky-rockets and then I start seeing error messages of processes being shutdown one after another. I am talking about several processes and daemons. Does anybody know what could be going on? I only experience this problem during the creation of virtual disks whether as part of the creation of a new VM or a virtual disk using the command line tools. I read RHEL4 U4 was in experimental stage, however vmware server 1.0.0/1.0.1 worked fine with RHEL4 U4, and recently any version I use has this memory usage problem. Any thought or workarounds? My VM's are dependent on services running on the host computer, so when those services go down not only some of the VM's are shutdown, but also the ones that are kept running become partially operational since they cannot talk to services running on the host.

    Even worse is that it takes forever, and appears to slow down as the disk gets larger. I've been preallocating a 500GB disk for about 28 hours now and it's at 89%.

    It scares me that the allocator gets slower as the disk file gets larger. I wonder--does this mean that there will be a severe performance degradation as the disk fills up?

    Hi,

    On my host machine, i have vista and I just instaled VM Player with XP pro SP3 on it. Now, I can't get the virtual machine to connect to the internet. My host machine uses wireless connection. I tried bridging the virtual adapter with the host connection but i get a error saying i can't have MAC bridging or something. I tried NAT and it doesn't work either.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    If all you need is basic internet for your virtual machine, leave the networking to NAT. NAT will use whatever networking your host has. But if you change from bridged to NAT, you likely didn't get a proper IP address ffor the NAT network. Set your virtual machine's OS to use DHCP (if you changed it to use a static IP) then reboot the virtual machine. (Or release renew the IP address. If you don't know how to do that, then reboot should work.)

    DB:2.98:Cant Create Virtual Machine In Virtual Network j1


    I'm trying to create a virtual machine inside a virtual network to host a domain controller.

    The steps I've followed are:
    1) Create the virtual network
    2) Create a storage account in the same affinity group as the network
    3) Create a VM
    The problem happens on step 3. When I try tocreate a VM from the gallery (selecting the December release of Server 2008), I do not see the storage account I created in step #2.
    If I try the option of having it create a storage account on demand, the VM creation process always fails with the error Internal Server Error.
    If it helps, I've been trying to walk through the steps outlined here:

    DB:2.98:Hyper-V Migration Problems zc

    On first glance, it looks like a constrained delegation problem. You could try out a couple of things - (1) Check if the migration is successful if you initiate the operation *on* the same server (eg: From failover cluster manager on host2 in your case)
    on which the VM is running or (2) Go thro' Taylor's blog on constrained delegation

    Hi All,

    At the time of clone creation our parant server experienced momentarily network connectivity loss . I dont suspect that the cloning process would cause the outages.

    However, I see that there was a virtual disk consolidation for each of those servers and that I believe would have caused the outage.

    and, this consolidation was happned as a part of VM cloning?

    "Unable to add virtual machine "Path\Name.vmx" to the inventory: Invalid Virtual Machine"

    It only happens when the VM disk size is greater than 100 gb. When i tried with a disk size of 8Gb and same setting for other parameters, it added successfully. There seems to be no problem with the disk creation as it gets created successully and i could even attach this disk to a VM created with parameter "Use an Existing virtual disk"..

    DB:2.95:Resizing Vm Drive sc


    Hi there

    I have created a virtual machine but I need to resize the hard drive as I didn't give myself enough space with the original install. I am trying to do this with a Windows XP guest machine, on a Windows XP host machine running VMWare workstation 5.5, with VMWare Converter.

    I have attempted to do this by using the VMWare Converter, and converting the VM to a new one with a bigger hard disk (8gb to 16gb). However, after the creation successfully completes in Converter, I can't boot into Windows on the new machine. All I get is an error about there being no drive A, and a blinking white cursor and it won't boot into Windows.

    I can boot into a Windows install disk on the virtual machine, and I have tried both chkdsk and fixmbr, but neither have helped. Can anyone offer any advice please?
