SRM 8.2 Appliance – how to execute scripts a windows server

This post was originally published on this site

I’m planning to upgrade from 6.5 (windows) to 8.2 (appliance), but I can’t find any guidelines on how to migrate existing recovery plans, with custom commands steps, executing bat/powershell files located on the SRM server?

 

Alternative, is there a way to call a script (bat or PS1) within a Windows server from a custom command step?

 

I was hoping it was possible to configure an external script server (Windows or Linux based), to store and execute scripts on.

VMware Workstation 15.1 mouse issue with RDP and Windows 10 1903 host

This post was originally published on this site

I have a computer that I RDP into that runs the latest version of VMware Workstation (15.1). I just upgraded it from Windows 10 1809 to Windows 10 1903.

There is a defect where anytime the mouse changes inside a VM (like from a pointer to a hand) the mouse jumps slightly, making it very annoying to actually do anything in the VM with a mouse. The guest OS can be anything, Windows OR Linux. I’m also running the latest VMware tools in the guest.

This problem only occurs if the host is running Windows 10 1903 AND you are RDPing into that host. This is guest agnostic.

When I reverted the host back to 1809 the problem went away. The mouse jumping problem seems to be associated with a Windows 10 1903 host running VMware Workstation.

I’m not sure where to report this bug. I tried to buy a support contract for VMware Workstation but you can’t buy one if you only hold one license.

Is there a place where I can report this bug? Does anyone have a workaround for it?

Horizon 7.5 to 7.8, and vSphere 6.7 to 6.7 U2a

This post was originally published on this site

Hello everyone,

 

So I get to do an upgrade

I was thinking on how to do this and I just thought I should bounce it off somebody to do a check and see if I’m right.

From what I can tell I need to upgrade Horizon first and get it to 7.8 from 7.5. We are not using composer we are just running connection servers.

Each user has a persistent desktop.

I was going to upgrade one connection server at a time from 7.5 to 7.8

Then upgrade the view agents from 7.5 to 7.8

Next weekend upgrade vCenter from 6.7 to 6.7 U2a

Then do the ESXi hosts.
