Workstation 15: Guest screen flickering occasionally – can someone reproduce this issue?

This post was originally published on this site

After having upgraded to VMware Workstation 15 on my Windows 10×64 machine, each of my VMs shows a black flicker from time to time (once every 10 minutes or so).

 

This disturbance can be reproduced easily:

 

Simply start a VM with a Windows 10×64 OS installed and wait for about 10 seconds after having signed in to the guest OS. Then the first black flicker will occur:

After having opened a support ticket I’m having long discussions with VMware Support. They don’t seem to be able to reproduce this issue.

 

So I’m asking here: Can anyone reproduce this issue?

Windows 10 1809 Upgrade failes

This post was originally published on this site

Hello,

 

we have about 400 Windows 10 VDIs in use. We are currently trying to install the upgrade Windows 10 1809. Our hard disk controllers are available as SCSI controllers. During the upgrade the virtual machine gets stuck in the boot screen and does a rollback. The failure “The installation failed in the SAFE OS phase with an error during the INSTALL_UPDATES operation” appears.  If I connect the hard disks to the IDE controller, the upgrade works. The latest VMWare tools are already installed (10.3.5). But we wouldn’t like to switch all VDIs to IDE controllers. Is there a general problem?  I hope someone has an another idea. Thanks in advance.

 

With kind regards
Dominik Geb

HPE Custom Image for ESXi 6.7 + Proliant Microserver Gen10 No IPMI capabilities

This post was originally published on this site

Hi there,

I’m really a newbie, so I may be asking something stupid, but I hope you can help me.

I downloaded and installed the HPE Custom Image for ESXi 6.7 GA Install CD on a HPE Proliant Microserver Gen 10 and everything went smoothly.

The thing now is about monitoring.

On the web client I go to Host > Monitor and the system says: This system has no IPMI capabilities, you may need to install a driver to enable sensor data to be retrieved.

Since here https://www.hpe.com/it/it/servers/hpe-esxi.html you can read (in Italian) “it supports Gen 9 and newer servers”

My understanding was that using this image I would not need to install anything else to monitor stuff like the RAID controller status.

 

Can you help me?

 

The final goal is to get to know ESXi, in order to make a step forward and offer our customers a better service but I am moving my first steps in this V-world and everything is really interesting but overwhelming.

 

Thanks in advance.

Recently upgraded console from 9.1.2. to 9.7.0.3 and I am trying to check the assignments for VMWare Boxer in our environment, however I’m unable to save to actually get to the assignment screen.  Under the license box on the right side of the screen it’s telling me i have -5 unallocated licenses and it will not let me save to continue.

After windows update outlook mail not working

This post was originally published on this site

Today morning, I have updated Windows 10 new patch around 640 MB. It takes around 2 hours to update this patch. After patch update when I tried to access Outlook mail it doesn’t open. I don’t know what the issue in the mail. I have tried many manual methods but no one works properly. I have searched this issue on this forum and found one thread related to Outlook:

https://communities.vmware.com/thread/586605

 

But still facing the same issue. After tons of searches, I have collected a few resources. Please refer to these resources and suggest which one is better.

Phone Call Attacks

This post was originally published on this site

More and more scams and attacks are happening over the phone. Whenever you get an urgent phone call on the phone pressuring you to do something (such as a caller pretending to be the tax department or Microsoft Tech Support) be very suspicious. It’s most likely a scammer trying to trick you out of money or pressure you into making a mistake. Protect yourself, simply hang up the phone. You are not being rude, the person on the other line is trying to take advantage of you.

Email and Emotions

This post was originally published on this site

Never send an email when you are angry; you will most likely regret it later. Instead, when you are emotional and want to reply to someone, open up an email and write everything you feel, but do not send it. (Be sure there is no name in the TO field so that you do not accidently send it.) After you have vented, save the email and come back an hour later. You only want to reply to any type of emotional situation after you have had time to cool down.
