Note of disapproval of player not persistent in VI Toolkit 1.5

I've updated my VI Toolkit (the script thing) 1.5 1.0 Tuesday, and I discovered a problem with one of my scripts.  Changes to the road from IndependentPeristent to IndependentNon-persistent States no longer work, produces the following message:

: 12/02/2009 13:30:22    Set-HardDisk  C9875D59-A700-4FDC-AE1D-8DF0189623B9    Changing virtual hard
disk persistance from "IndependentPersistent" to "IndependentNonPersistent" is not supported. At
C:\vmbop\VMBOp.ps1:163 char:58+  Set-Harddisk -VM (get-content $strVMList) | Set-HardDisk  <<<<-Persistence IndependentNonPersistent

While there is a slight pain as the script is concerned, the reason is a bit more concerning.

The bit that changes the persistence of the car is as follows:

Get - hard drive -VM $objVM | Hard drive set -Persistence IndependentNonPersistent

I thought that maybe the syntax has changed in this latest version, so I ran help against the command Set - hard drive that showed me what follows:

Specifies the disk persistence mode. The valid values are: Persistent, NonPersistent, IndependentPersistent, IndependentNonPersistent, and Undoable. This parameter
is supported only when the disk type is set to "rawVirtual" or "flat". Note that the 'NonPersistent' and 'Undoable' persistence policies are deprecated and will be discontinued in future releases. Their
usage is not recommended because they do not work with snapshots and are not supported on ESX 3.5 and higher.

I changed the command to:

Get - hard drive -VM $objVM | Hard drive set -Persistence not persistent

Which resulted in the following:

Consider using another persistence policy because 'NonPersistent' is deprecated
and will be discontinued in a future release. Also it doesn't work with
snapshots and is not supported on ESX 3.5 and higher.

And then wrong with:

Set-HardDisk : 13/02/2009 14:15:53    Set-HardDisk    2A59A949-0BCF-4E7A-8837-4D3583D27C8A    Changing virtual hard disk persistance from "IndependentPersistent" to "NonPersistent" is not supported. At line:1 char:48
+ Get-Harddisk -VM MSIBenchmarking | Set-HardDisk  <<<< -Persistence NonPersistent

If VMware remove non-persistent features for disks, then this will cause me trouble, according to the circumstances, that I can't use snapshots.

Also, does anyone know how to fix the script so that it will work in VI Toolkit 1.5?

It looks like a bug. We change the behavior of this cmdlet, and I think it is because it is impossible to create discs of IndependentNonpersistent on 3.5. Which corresponds to your experience?

I asked the dev team to watch him.

  • New library filter column does not persist


    LR 5.

    I add a new column to my filter (type of file for example),

    but when I restart LR, this new column does not persist and that it is simply missing.

    Either I'm back with the default columns 4.

    What I am doing wrong?

    Thank you!


    Hi x 700700.

    After you have added a column for library filters save it as a custom preset and name it what you want.

    Thus, if in the case whenever the filter gets changed default column, you can still select it from your custom preset list.

    Let us know if that helps.

    Kind regards

  • VMware-cmd persistent / not persistent does not work in vsphere / esx4?


    We have a problem with the definition of a State of non-persistent disk with a script - something that we used to be able to do with ESX 3.5

    On ESX 3.5, this used to work:

    # vmware - cmd XPROUTER.vmx scsi0:0.mode independent-no persistent setconfig

    On ESX 4.0, the statement runs as follows and does not return anything - that is:

    # vmware - cmd XPROUTER.vmx scsi0:0.mode independent-no persistent setconfig


    Neither does not change the .vmx or the State of SCSI0.0 in the GUI.

    Also, if I try to edit the .vmx with text editor line.

    scsi0:0.mode = persistent "independent-no.

    The change does not appear in the GUI configuration...

    Looking at vmware-cmd reference V-sphere, it seems that the order to setconfig is gone?

    What method can be used to assign a disk of the machine non-persistent / persistent command-line on ESX 4.0?

    Thanks in advance!

    That's right, which was removed from vSphere, I think that it might have been some curiosities and items in the past with the command and perhaps removed all together. Technically, the vmware-cmd is an obsolete utility. You'll probably want to take a look at using vCLI or PowerCLI to reconfigure your VM to fire the drive persistent or not persistent.

    You can take a look at the vSphere SDK for Perl, there are a variety of scripts that allow for the wide range of operations against your vCenter, the host and the VM (s): That would be of interest is , you will find that you will be able to update your disc mode.

  • CS5 settings not persistent

    I have a problem where parameters such as the snap-snap-in and JPEG saving options do not persist through several documents and must be set each time which is incredibly tedious. I looked in preferences many times and could not find an arrangement that could solve this problem.

    Someone here has a solution to this problem? In the meantime I'll have to go back to CS4 as it is incredibly exasperating.

    Thanks in advance!

    Have you checked faulty Setup discussions, which causes the Photoshop preferences must be created with restricted permissions?

  • Session Variables do not persist

    Hello everyone, I am writing an app to work where a user connects to a system and then adds and removes entries from a database via a web application. I use session variables to store the ID of the user and the permissions of this user. I get through the connection very well. After clicking on a link on the following points if the page ("a href =" link) session variables are not available on the next page. I don't understand why the session variables are not persistent throughout the site. In my application.cfm I < name cfapplication sessionmanagement = "true" sessiontimeout = "App" = "#CreateTimeSpan (0, 1, 0, 0) #" > any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

    I solved the problem. The problem was that the CFID and CFTOKEN variables have been changed from one page to another page in my site. It was because I was using http://app/... http://###.###.###.###/... and a few pages in other pages. I was using the name of the server for some intellectual property for some and FC saw these different sites and changed the CFID and CFTOKEN variables, so my session have not persisted through the site.

  • PersistentStore is not persistent between the device restart


    I use the PersistentStore to store a hash table with an integer simple mapping custom of POJO. It seems to work between the restarts the application, IE, I can totally my application and restart and persistent data are restored. However, after a reboot of the appliance, such as pulling on the battery, the data are there not more and everything is reset to 0 by default. Same thing happens on the Simulator.

    I certainly call the commit() every time I change the contents of the table of hash and that in a thread safe way. Nothing appears in the journal of the events, or all exceptions...

    It's with OS 4.6.0 and in this case a "BOLD".

    One with ideas or similar issues that I could hurt?

    Thank you.


    Right, I found the problem: all the objects you want to persist must implement the Persistable interface. Too bad there is no word about it in the JavaDoc of PersistentStore and PersistentObject and too unfortunate that PersistentObject.setContent () takes an object as a parameter instead of an instance of a Persistable implementation. That probably has to do with the fact that the implementation allows implicit persistables objects as the Java object representatives for more than native data types Hashtable and vector.

  • Custom folder settings (details, sort order, etc.) are not persisted

    Do not save the changes I make to my files. If I move the icons on my desktop, the next time I have to disconnect or reset, they're going to order by default/placement (is all concentrated at the top on the left side of the screen). If I change the "details" that appear in a certain folder, or view records or sort order, these details disappear the second I click the folder, click again it in the Navigation pane (or if I close the Windows Explorer window, and then open a new).

    Global settings (from the display of folders in the control panel option) are OK, it's just customizations to records that disappear.

    Is there a way I can force my folder for each folder customizations to persist?

    This type of problem with saving settings often indicates a corrupt user profile.  I suggest test you in a different user account (create one if necessary) and see if the same problem occurs or not.

  • Tiles start to open a web page in Chrome are not persistent

    Separated from this thread.

    I'm having the same problem. Create a shortcut to open a website in Google Chrome, pin it to start, to open and close Chrome a couple of times, and the tile is removed from the start screen. Don't believe me? Try it for yourself... :(

    More info: even after the tiles disappear from the splash screen, shortcuts remain in the AppData/Microsoft/Windows/Start Menu/Programs/folder. Try to pin shortcuts in menu start again creates new tiles, for example ' website (2) ", and after the closing and opening Google Chrome again, that will disappear too.

    Hey Ethan,

    Usually this problem is due to corruption of user profiles or reason to set another browser as default. I would like to know some information about this problem so that we can help you further.

    1. is this problem confined to any specific Web site shortcuts?

    2. you use Internet Explorer as your web browser by default?

    3. are you facing the same issue on another user account?

    I would suggest trying the following methods and check if it works for you.

    Method 1:

    As a first step, try to create a Web site on the Internet Explorer shortcut and check if the same problem exists with Internet Explorer or not.

    Method 2:

    If you do not have a different user account, and then try to create a new user account and check if the problem persists. This is to check if the problem is caused due to a corruption of user profiles or not.

    See the following article from Microsoft Help to create a new user account.

    Please reply with the status of the issue so that we can better help you.

  • Mark EO does not persist.

    Hi Experts,

    I have 3 OF1 of EO, EO2, oe3 where oe3 is child of EO2 EO2 of of1. I have only EO2 to oe3 association. Now, I created an EO2 VO2 and oe3 and a VO1 for of1 with a ViewLink VO1 and VO2.

    My main requirement is that I use this assessment and only looking for VO and CreateInsert Office for the creation of a LINE, but I don't want to make this data persistent. Instead, I read this values in my Managed bean go to AM and call my EJB it persists.

    My problem is that I am able to call my EJB, but when I do

    getDBTransaction () .postChanges ();

    getDBTransaction () .commit ();

    2 rows are committed in my PB. One of the EO and one of my EJB. How can I mark my EO does not make persistent?

    Java (TM) Platform1.7.0_51
    Oracle IDE12.

    this.getVO1 () .remove ();  ?

    This will therefore remove h VO.

    You must delete the row and VO not together, something like: this.getVO1 () .getCurrentRow () .remove ();


  • Difference between persistent messaging and messaging is not persistent


    I have a confusion related to persistent Messaging.

    According to my knowledge, the message becomes persistent if the JMSDeliveryMode flag is set

    SO what - this by defalut?

    Where stored for instant messages for non - persistent messages.

    Thanks in advance :)

    Persistence of the message is defined by the attribute of mode of delivery for the producer in the JMS message client or it can talk together on a basis of messages in the send operation. The default value for the mode of delivery to the producer of the message is PERMANENT.

    WebLogic JMS has a function to override the shipping method defined by the producer of message. This is the configuration of the Destination where there is an attribute called the Mode of delivery replace which can take the values:

    Not provided: Mode of delivery of the message producer is not overridden
    Persistent: All messages are marked as persistent regardless of the message setting producer
    Non-permanent: all Messages are marked as non-persistent regardless of the message setting producer.

    All non-persistent messages are stored in the memory in case of normal use. If there is a stack to the top of messages, weblogic moves the body of the message the disk in what called a store of pagination for the JMS server, keeping only the headers of the message in memory. The characteristic of non-persistent messages, is that he cannot survive server restart. If these messages even when they are on the disk in the paging store custom survive restart of the server.

  • Local storage setting is not persistent.

    Hi all

    I'm having a problem, try to increase the setting of local storage in my Flash Player. Given that I have installed the flash player local storage parameter is set to None. Whenever I have try to increase it, and then return to the settings panel there is reset to zero. I think it's a problem with my machine, is there something that could cause this problem? Permissions on a directory maybe? I have seen that local storage is stored in player %APPDATA%/Macromedia/Flash... but this directory does not exist for my user.

    Thanks in advance,


    Solved the problem, it was caused by the AppData registry setting on my machine doesn't point is not a valid path. The key can be found here "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders" even though I think you need to change here 'HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders' and when you log in the process explore will evaluate the settings of user Shell folders and move them across Shell Folders (so you have to maybe restart the process explore to make it work)
