Let me know scenarios when different virtual machines with the same UUID are created in VMware Hypervisors?

Let me know scenarios when different virtual machines with the same UUID created in VMware Hypervisors, aside from editing the .vmx file?

Advertisement

The only other way I've seen is when you manually copy the virtual machine to another location on the data store (or another data store) and then when turn on/off the virtual machine, select I moved, rather that I copied it (the default option).  This will keep the same UUID.

  • PowerCLI Script to migrate virtual machines with the same network Source for the new vCenter Server.

    Hi all

    I checked a few posts on the migration to the new vCenter Server virtual machine. But I'm not very good with Powercli and need some help here.

    We have a new vCenter server where we migrate virtual machines from one source vCenter server. Here are two things that I don't know how to connect together to make sure that bwfore we turn on the virtual machine to the virtual machine is connected to its source network.

    Part 1 - this script works well but do not get any network on the vCenter destination.

    cluster = Get-Cluster "clusterA.

    $inventory = get-Cluster $cluster | Get - VM | Add-Member - MemberType ScriptProperty-name "VMXPath" - value {$this.extensiondata.config.files.vmpathname}-Passthru-Force | Select-Object Name ResourcePool, folder, VMXPath |

    $inventory | Export-Csv c:\file.csv

    $inventory = import-csv c:\file.csv

    $cluster = get-group 'b '.

    {foreach ($vm to $inventory)

    $ESXHost = get-Cluster $cluster | Get-VMHost | Select - 1 first

    New-VM - VMFilePath $vm. VMXPath - VMHost $ESXHost - location $vm. Folder - ResourcePool (Get-Cluster $cluster |) Get-ResourcePool $vm. ResourcePool)

    }

    Part 2 - I want to preserve the Portgroup macaddress and the Ip of the virtual computers and connect them to the new vCenter. How can I do this with the script below. Or how can I combine them together?

    $vm_list = get-Cluster-name "clustera | Get - VM test * | Name sort

    $information = {foreach ($vm to $vm_list)

    $network_adapter_information = get-NetworkAdapter - VM $vm

    $vm | Select Name,PowerState,ResourcePool,@{N="Path; E=       {$_.

    }

    Step 2

  • Oracle XE on multiple virtual machines on the same physical machine?

    Hi people,

    Can I install Oracle XE on several virtual machines that are on the same physical machine?

    Thank you

    G. grangier

    I find that this interpretation is questionable.
    Instance, what do mean?
    What they mean by server?
    Unless Oracle explicitly forbids the execution of several databases of XE on different virtual machines at the same time, I don't see violations.

    For example, imagine that the user has runs that XE on AWS and user B running an another XE on AWS.
    They are not running on the same "Server"?

  • Tagged management VLAN and the virtual machines on the same VLAN

    I'm faced with a problem related to our Brocade switches newly acquired and get the private VLAN to work on trunk connections to our ESX servers.  Every time I try something different, he creates a new problem.

    In our configuration, our management of VLAN is not tag and we have a VLAN for this management network that is placed on our switches VLAN no marked native.  We also have virtual machines hosted on those same ESX servers that are on the same VLAN and everything works fine.  However, when I change the ESX management to carry a label on this VLAN and change the switchports accordingly (IE no untagged VLAN native), management work, but hosted on the ESX Server machines that are on the same VLAN can get no network connectivity.

    Is it possible to have a management network labeled and also the host of virtual machines on the same VLAN or is it totally impossible?  I'm not very familiar with networking behind ESX, so I apologize if this is a dumb question with an obvious answer.

    Thank you

    Mark J.

    Is it possible to have a management network labeled and also the host of virtual machines on the same VLAN or is it totally impossible?

    Yes, it is possible... why it doesn't work for you I don't know, but try the following:

    1. set up the Group of ports of VMS to use VLAN;

    2 configure the interface of management VMkernel port group use VLAN;

    3 configure the physical switch port to allow to this VLAN and put the default VLAN natively for these interfaces.

  • I had the opportunity to see all the drives in windows 7 and XP virtual machine on the same screen. He suddenly disappeared, and I need.

    As I set up my computer with Windows 7 Professional and XP virtual machine, I could see all the readers, W7 and the virtual machine on the same screen. I can't do now for some reason any. All I can understand what is is past is that I got a page long list of automatic updates of W7 and some XP updates and as far as I know, the current page of readers has disappeared since then.  I need this feature if I can transfer files between W7 and XP because some of my programs are in one program of windows. I have nothing special when I installed XP to achieve this functionality, so I really don't understand what it controls.  How can I get that back?

    I have solved my problem by trying everything that moves. Here are my steps:
    -Open Virtual PC and minimize it
    -In the Windows 7 machine, click Start click all programs
    -Select Windows Virtual PC
    -Select Windows Virtual PC (in the drop-down list)
    -When the window opens, right-click on Windows XP Mode
    -Select share >
    -Select the homegroup (read/write)

    -Minimized open Virtual PC
    -Select my computer
    Windows 7 disks will be under other

    I hope this works for you also. As I said, it worked like this until I had a huge list of automatic updates of Windows 7 and XP more some updates. Apparently, one of them cut something.

  • Start and stop Virtual Machines with the system

    Hello

    In a server cluster @vcenter HA/DRS 5.1, I enabled start and stop virtual machines with the system option but after I checked two days later, he is off again somehow. What makes this option off? I had a power failure in the datacenter. vCenter server has not been upward. I started all of the ESXi servers manually then went all VMs account is declining. I want that they start automatically when server ESXi upward.

    Thanks in advance,

    Thank you. This option is more valid than if the hosts are part of an HA Cluster license. I suspect that you configured through the traditional vSphere Client and that it is a bug with this client. If you try with the new vSphere Web Client, you will find a notice that it is disabled and there is no button "Edit".

  • A virtual machine at the same time...? Which means that for Vmware replication

    Hi guys

    I read the Vmware 5.5 replication, and it says what I do not understand.

    I was reading the recovery process and he said:

    You can recover a virtual machine at the same time on the site replicated on the incoming replication tab

    what it means?

    I restore a VM and I have to wait until he said recovered to start the recovery process or simply means that a single virtual computer at a time and no group of the virtual machine can be recovered I can begin the process of recovery in 3 VMs at the same time, but I have to go one

    Thanks a lot guys

    Hello

    The second. You can begin the process of recovery for each virtual computer and they can go in parallel. However, there is no option to select more than one replication and begin the process of recovery in a single step.

    Kind regards

    IM the difficulty to create a virtual machine with the type of controller SCSI to "LSI Logic SAS". The cmdlet New - VM im struggling to find where to create the type of controller?

    If you create a virtual machine without specifying a disk it will create a 4 GB SCSI type thick (0:0) hard drive 1 with 0 Parrall default BusLogic SCSI controller.

    Greetings, steddyeddie-

    You should be able to use Set - hard drive and SCSI controller Set cmdlets to set the storage format of your hard drive and the SCSI controller type, respectively.  You were close to on the part of game - hard drive .  Try something like:

    ## get the VM object $vmVMSTORE23 = Get-VM VMSTORE23 ## set the harddisk storageformat to thin$vmVMSTORE23 | Get-HardDisk | Set-HardDisk -StorageFormat Thin ## set the SCSI controller type$vmVMSTORE23 | Get-ScsiController | Set-ScsiController -Type VirtualLsiLogicSAS
    

    It could pack in to your existing order to keep it as a good word, but for readability.

    Host-Only is VMnet1, you used only NAT. static use of intellectual property and switch to DHCP for now. Make sure that the VMWare DHCP Server service is running. Put network cards in comments to "host-only '.
