VMware View Agent for VMs not in vCenter

Hi all Requireent If you have to install the VMware Horizon View Agent outside a VM (or a phyiscal PC) not managed in vCenter you have to use the following command:   Soution in VMware Agent VMware-viewagent-Y.Y.Y0-xxxxxx.exe /v”VDM_VC_MANAGED_AGENT=0″ If you then create a manual desktop pool in the VMware Horizon View Admin you will see the desktop listed in “Other” sources. Hope this helps other out there in the jungle 🙂

VMware error: “Failed to write header to…”

Dear VMware User Today a customer called me and showed me following error (Veeam & VMware logs): Error A general system error occurred: Failed to write header to “/var/log/vmware/journal/1487689997.1: Error while writing to file. There is no space left on the device Reservation destination directory   Solution Solution was to move the logs away from the scratch partition (in our case a 4 GB SD card) to a persistent scratch location (i.e. a VMware datastore) More information on the VMware KB site: https://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=2003322

Disks not available during ESXi Upgrade on HPE servers

Today I did an ESXi update on some HPE DL380 Gen9 servers for a customer. I attached the ISO and rebooted the first host as always. But during the update process no disks was shown to update / install the ESXi host.   Resolution: The issue was, that I should take the HPE Custom ESXi ISO. Download: https://my.vmware.com/group/vmware/details?downloadGroup=OEM-ESXI60U2-HPE&productId=491 (Google for other vendors) Reboot again with the right ISO and I could start the update. Hope it helps some others out there.
