Adobe CC and UEM

This post was originally published on this site




I’m trying to setup Adobe CC 2018 on an app stack. I have been able to capture the application on a stack fine. The challenge I have is to capture the actions of accepting the license agreement and to logon to the adobe cloud for licensing using UEM.



Here is what happens:

User logs on > Opens a component of CC > users is asked to accept the license agreement then user is asked to logon to the cloud for the license. User logs off > vm gets deleted/rebuilt (Persistent Instant Clone) > User logs on > Opens a component of CC > user is asked to accept the license agreement then user is asked to logon to the cloud for the license.

Has anyone figure out a way to address this with UEM?


Current Environment

Horizon 7.3.2

App Vols.




Upgrading soon to

Horizon 7.5.1

App Vols. 2.14

UEM 9.4

Unable to log into vCenter 6.7 VMware Appliance Management page

This post was originally published on this site

vCenter 6.7 fresh vCenter Server Appliance install with an embedded Platform Services Controller on a 6.5 ESXi host.

Stage 1: Deploy appliance – Completed successfully

Stage 2: Configure appliance – Completed sucessfully


When I try to log in as root on the VMware Appliance Management web:5480 page using the IP address of the server, I receive the error. Unable to login, NOT the error Unable to authenticate user. I can successfully log in using the console with root credentials. Used a variety of browsers and validated security settings. Any ideas?


Adding NIC to HP DL580 Gen9 running ESXi 5.5U3

This post was originally published on this site

Having some troubles with our HP DL580 that I was hoping I could get some suggestions for;


When we build our ESXi servers, we set the BIOS settings and Legacy BIOS mode via the profile templates in HP OneView.

We have just finished configuring a HP DL580 Gen9 with our standard build scripts and SPP but were asked to provide an additional, dedicated connection to provide a direct network path for patching.


Generally the server is built with 2 x CNE1200 NICs and 2 x LPe12000 HBA. To accommodate the client’s request, we added an additional CNE1200 NIC to the server, ran the SPP again to apply drivers and restarted the server (new total 3 x CNE1200 NICs on DL580 Gen9)


When the server comes back online after installing the NIC, we are issued the following error message:

1706-The Extended BIOS Data Area in Server Memory has been Overwritten – Smart Array Interrupt 13h BIOS Cannot Continue – System Halted


During some troubleshooting, I noticed that if I revert the server BIOS setting to UEFI mode, it will circumvent this error and it appears that ESXi 5.5U3 loads up properly and I am able to interact with the server in vCenter no problem. We are able to configure and utilize the server properly at this stage but if I try to revert the BIOS settings to Legacy Mode, it will present the 1706-error message again.


I was poking around based on some articles I saw online regarding similar errors others have dealt with; and I noticed that the Smart Array Storage Administrator fails to load as well – the screen gets stuck on the ‘loading drivers’ portion of the built-in application.


Is there a reason to be using Legacy BIOS in ESXi 5.5U3 if I am able to boot to the OS?

I read that swapping between the 2 was not supported after installation but I have been able to do so without any obvious adverse behaviour in the system

Is there a recommended process/steps I can follow for adding hardware such as NICs to an already running server configuration?

Would a full re-imaging of the server be recommended to have this new hardware function properly?


I can try to provide any additional, relevant information in determining the underlying cause should it be required


Thanks for any help you guys can offer

vmware-vmx high cpu usage causing Mac to heat up constantly

VMWare Fusion Professional Version 8.5.10 (7527438)


When I power-on the VM, MacBook fan starts to run very noisy and get machine hot. I’ve seen in Activity Monitor that a process “vmware-vmx” is hanging a lot of CPU (about 100-150% at any time).


I got a Windows 10 Enterprise VM with dedicated/allocated 2 cores and 8GB RAM. I power-on the virtual machine and min later the fans are running very fast and Activity Monitor shows that vmware-vmx is using +100% CPU.


I’ve tried to play with the resources, turn off accelerate 3D graphics but no result. What can I do to troubleshoot and how do I get to the root cause. This issue was not even noticeable a year ago but not sure what changed to all the sudden heat up and run high CPU.


Help please!
