Adding more cores to a VMClient : Feature ‘Hot-Pluggable virtual HW’ is not licensed with this edition

This post was originally published on this site

I am trying to add more cores to a VM client running on  the following HP Server and I am getting the following error:

 

Feature ‘Hot-Pluggable virtual HW’ is not licensed with this edition.

 

What do I need to purchase in order to add more cores?  The server has 1 CPU and 6 cores?

 

Product: VMware vSphere 6 Hypervisor Licensed for 1 physical CPUs (unlimited cores per CPU)
License Key: H129K-0UL9L-28Y88-XXXX-XXXX
Expires: Never

Product Features:
    Up to 8-way virtual SMP

 

Reconfiguration fails on standalone with vim.fault.NoPermission during registry access

The relevant fragment of the worker log appears to be as below.  What could this be caused by?  Is there a possible workaround / solution?

ESXi 6.0 U3 installation stuck on enter root password page

This post was originally published on this site

HI while installing custom made ESXi 6.0 image into HP Proliant DL380 Gen 10 server, I am stuck on enter root password page.

 

My logical disk is show at remote section and not on local. I can still choose remote location and pressing enter takes me to set root password.

 

This is where I am stuck, I try to enter password to root section but as soon as I hit seven characters it says password mismatch, even though I have not enter password on confirm password section.

Pressing enter key dose not seem to work here but still can press back (F9) and ESC key.

 

Not sure what the problem is.

 

The custom image consist of ESXi 6.0.0 offline bundle and contains this driver VIB package from HP website found below:

Start of VMWARE Workstation Player fails

This post was originally published on this site

Hi.

I have a new Computer (HP Spectre x360 with AMD Ryzon and Windows 10 pro.

If i try to start Vmware Workstation Player 14 i get a error message:

 

Windows 7 Pro Work Vmware Workstation 14 Player

Vmare Player and Device/Credential Guard are not compatible.
Player can be run after disabling Device/Credential Guard.

 

I was visit the suggested web site for turn off Device/Credential Guard, but found no answer.
Have anyone a idea, what i can do in this case?

 

The Windows Defender guard is deactivated also Virtualization based security.

Thank you for help.
