OpenGL 4.1 support on Linux Guest using Workstation PRO 16

This post was originally published on this site

I’ve see in the release notes (VMware Workstation 16 Pro Release Notes) this line:

Support for DirectX 11 and OpenGL 4.1 in the Guest

I’ve installed Ubuntu 20.04 guest on Windows 10 host and OpenGL 3.3 version is reported. I’ve updated Mesa drivers to latest version (20.1.8) and the same OpenGL version is reported:

glxinfo -B

Can you please let me know how may I get OpenGL 4.1 support?

 

PS: I’ve also tried this guide https://docs.mesa3d.org/vmware-guest.html to build vmwgfx, but it seems outdated.
The error message is:

VROPS – Overload CPU for a cluster

This post was originally published on this site

Hello,

 

I can see in vROPS that one of my cluster has the following stats:

 

CPU cores = 252

vCPU allocated = 3181

Overload CPU = 12,62

 

My customer ask me to explain this value of overload CPU but I don’t really know what to say about it especialy when should I consider it becomes a warning for my cluster?

This one is clearly in CPU contention during the day.

I have another one that is not in CPU contention and has the following values:

 

CPU cores = 48

vCPU allocated = 192

Overload CPU = 4

 

Is is too simple to answer that above 10% overload, it is not good? I imagine that it is more complicated than that.

 

Thanks for helping.

macOS compliance profile marks everything als false

This post was originally published on this site

Hi, I am running a trial of vmware workspace one uem.
Version: 20.8.0.1 (2008)
Build Information:

 

I have an issue where all my macOS compliance checks are being reported as false, while they are in fact not on two macOS 10.15.6 laptops.

Checks in question: – Disk Encryption is not encryptedSystem Integrity Protection is disabledOS Version less than or equal to macOS Catalina 10.15.6.

The devices in question have already rebooted and I have re-requested compliance check numerous times.

e.g. I verified SIP is indeed enabled by issuing `csrutil status` via commandline which reported ‘enabled’.

This all worked fine a couple days ago.

 

Can somebody please help out?

I have passed VCAP-DCV Deploy 3v0-21.18

This post was originally published on this site

I have 8 years of VMware experience. In April this year, I plan to take the EXAM of VCAP. In June, I completed the exam of VCAP-Design.

 

VCAP-DCV Deploy Examination Experience:

 

2020/07/29 Failed the first exam

 

Before that, I had completed a lot of study and work. The test environment was based on vSphere 6.7, so many details may be good. When I saw the exam topics, I was a little confused and had many questions, such as QOS and Lun MASK, which were rarely used.

It also made me realize my shortcomings.

 

Prior to this, I completed the online lab provided by the user, which is a great lab, the lab is in Brazil (time zone UTC-3), pay attention to the time conversion, you can reserve it for $15.

Tip: You need a paypal account.

2020/09/15 The second exam, pass

 

Based on the first failure, I quickly realized my knowledge blind spot.

At the same time, I built my own vSphere 6.5 test platform in the nested environment, completing the construction of many functions.

With all 17 questions completed, the test evaluation feels like a script grading, so pay attention and do as much as you can on each item of each question.

 

 

That night I received the test result of 371/500, and I passed, but with a lower score than I had expected.

P2V Conversion Failed

This post was originally published on this site

The first time conversion was failed with .vstor2-mntapi20-shared-4B1CBA2200001000000000001A000000$Reconfig$”,

 

After that followed the below steps:

  -You should check source & destination processor, memory availability

-Check Password case sensitive before converting to virtual (if any  !@#$%^&*() is there then remove it),if it’s there then reset it before proceeding

– Uninstall Symantec Endpoint Protection from physical server.

– Run chkdsk /R in a command prompt window from source physical server

– Re-boot the Windows 2003 machine (so that Windows can find and fix any disk sectors).

– Then use VM Converter to convert the machine.

 

The second time the conversion failed with A general system error occurred:Internal Error.

 

Kindly suggest how to resolve this issue.

 

Worker diagnostics traces are below:

REST calls to vRealize Operations Manager does character “translation”

This post was originally published on this site

Hi,

 

I need to do an API call to vRealize Operations Manager from vRealize Orchestrator.

And I use the workflow “Invoke a REST operation”

 

Basically I need to have following URL:

https://URL/suite-api/api/resources/b51cc558-22f4-409a-bab9-f324a18a7a41/stats/latest?statKey=OnlineCapacityAnalytics|cpu|alloc|capacityRemaining

 

But the Invoke a REST operation “translates” it to this:

https://URL/suite-api/api/resources/b51cc558-22f4-409a-bab9-f324a18a7a41/stats/latest?statKey=OnlineCapacityAnalytics%5C%7Ccpu%5C%7Calloc%5C%7CcapacityRemaining

 

Anyone suggestions ?

 

Thanks!

Workstation 16 “Could not open /dev/vmmon” on OpenSUSE Leap 15.2 using secure boot

This post was originally published on this site

I just upgraded to VMWare Workstation 16.  The program install without any problems.  However, when I try to load a virtual machine, I get the following error Messages:

 

1. 

Could not open /dev/vmmon: No such file or directory.

Please make sure that the kernel module `vmmon’ is loaded.

 

2. 

Failed to initialize monitor device.

 

3.

Unable to change virtual machine power state: Transport (VMDB) error -14: Pipe connection has been broken.

 

I did a search on the Internet and found the following tutorial to fix this problem:  VMware Knowledge Base

 

The problem is that the tutorial does not work on openSUSE Leap 15.2 because there seems not to exist a ‘linux-headers’ command. 

 

Does anyone know a possible fix that works on openSUSE Leap 15.2?
