Can I dig deeper for info OS?


Hello

Part 1

Using the Get - VM and Get-VMGuest, I can get a range of elements. However what I can't do are things like:

-Service Pack installed

-The person who created the virtual machine?

-Last connection to the machine (person id)

Are these pieces of information available IF the virtual machine runs via a feature of vmware tools in the guest OS? (i.e. to assume vmware tools is installed and the virtual machine is running)

Part 2

Some of our ESX are old, i, e, 3.5 rather than 4.0, I guess that means I don't think OS Info? or there is another way?

There are 2 other options to get the info on the guest operating system (and I guess that your guest operating system is a Windows operating system).

(1) the guest operating system is accessible, then you can use the Get-WmiObject cmdlet to get this information

Get-WmiObject-class Win32_OperatingSystem - ComputerName MyPC | Select *.

(2) the guest operating system is not available, then use the Invoke-VMScript cmdlet to browse the Get-WmiObject inside the guest OS the VMware Tools (which must be installed).

$vm = get-VM-name MyVM

Invoke VMScript - VM $vm - ScriptType PowerShell - ScriptText "Get-WmiObject-class Win32_OperatingSystem".

To get information about who created the virtual machine, you can use the Get-VIEvent cmdlet and look for entries VMCreatedEvent .

There are several examples of these methods in this community.

  • BlackBerry smartphones can not download Twitter for BlackBerry

    I have a flashlight and recently uninstalled Twitter for BlackBerry and installed Uber Twitter instead. Since I found that I prefer the former. However, now I can not install Twitter for BlackBerry. He told me that my device does not meet the requirements.

    The requirements are: 64 MB, 1000 KG free and BlackBerry version 4.5 or higher software.

    I have 512 MG on my device; 3.7 GB available on the built-in memory and 2.9 GB available on my memory card. I use BlackBerry device Software version 6.0.

    I'm going back with BlackBerryHelp on Twitter, but they cease to tempt me what I already tried.

    I tried to download it from the page Twitter (mobile) as well as page BlackBerry.com (mobile) with the same results. I also tried to send the link by email and download it from the link. Nada. The application does not appear in my App World.

    Help? Please? I'm tweetless.

    Hello

    Maybe it's because Twitter for BlackBerry is currently being updated.  Start by following these steps:

    1. with the unit, remove the battery for 15-30 seconds, then reinsert and wait for the device to reboot.  This will ensure that you start with a clean slate.

    2. If you have BlackBerry AppWorld, try to open AppWorld and search for Twitter here.  Twitter for BlackBerry app should be listed first.  You can then download the Twitter app from there.  This will actually give you the most up-to-date version.

    3. If this does not work, or if you don't have App World installed on your device, try to download it again from http://www.blackberry.com/twitter via your BlackBerry browser.  Now that you've done the battery pull and provided all the files are gone, you should be able to download it.

    If she won't even download, let us know.  Perhaps it is that the servers are updated and which is interrupt your ability to download.  If necessary, I'll ask another user of torch to see if it can access the download.  If he can't, then we will move the info along to those who can check it out further.

  • The emails that I deleted and are not in the trash always appear in full text in global research. How can I remove them for good?

    I deleted these emails, some time ago. The basket is empty. I would like to remove them permanently, but have not been able to locate them in a form that will allow me to do. They are not using edit > find > find messages. I did a manual search of all files, but they aren't there. I tested on a "dummy" email removal function, which removes also trash without problem, but always presents itself in a global search, with no specified location. It seems that there is a permanent record of every email as a "phantom", even after Trash has successfully cleared. I looked in the Profiles folder, but cannot locate a file where they can be stored, but they must be in a file somewhere on my computer. I would like to know where it is so I can nuke once and for all of these emails of undead.

    FIXED by the questioner. I found a file called 'global-messages-db-sqlite' in the folder ' (user) > AppData > Roaming > Thunderbird > profiles > jt * .default.
    He showed the current date, but I suspect that it updated in the search of the original that I ran to find the files I wanted to delete. (The test email that seemed to confirm the problem indeed there successfully removed; I deleted from my Inbox but forgot to remove it from my 'Sent' folder).
