  • 09/28/16--10:07: Run a DELAYED logon task.
  • I would like to run the UEM Shortcut refresh a few seconds delayed after logon.




    I have a DirectFlex for the "AppV 5.x Integrations" (triggered off SyncAppvPublishingServer.exe) that runs after you get your desktop.

    That takes a few seconds to process.

    I have a couple of Desktop Icons for Outlook & Lync that I would like to show up, but the DirectFlex job finishes after the usual UEM shortcuts are populated.

    I've tried adding a "User Environment" sub task to the "AppV 5.x Integrations", as a Post-Import Task...but it is still too early.


    Does anyone else know any tricks to running a delayed process? (without a visual batch file running a count statement)

    Great to hear you found the root cause and a proper solution!


    This is valuable feedback, thanks for letting us know.

  • 09/28/16--10:18: Re: Storage DAS
  • FreeNAS or OpenFiler will not will help you to use all 3 servers storage and use features like HA, DRS, vMotion.

    You can install FreeNAS or Openfiler on one of the Host and provision all its storage to other remaining ESXi hosts.

    In this case you will have dependency on one single host of FreeNAS or openfiler.


    if you would like to use all hosts local storage with advanced features  then you will need to use hyper converged solution like Virtual SAN.


    Introduction VMware vSphere Virtual SAN


    to use this you will need to have vCenter, ESXi license and also Virtual SAN license.

    Its easy to use and configure. However it has specific hardware requirements.

    Virtual SAN Software-Defined Shared Storage: VMware


    With VSAN, you would be able to use features like HA, DRS, vMotion with local storage.

    When you say "first set of instructions" I take it you meant:

    Ubuntu or Ubuntu Server with a graphical user interface


    Was there any error message?


    In the VM have you tried adjusting the screen resolution under display settings (or something along those lines, I don't have a Ubuntu VM here near me atm)

    devakumar Thank you for the information. Do you know if this is still an issue in the 6.5 SDK? If so is it known whether this will be fixed by the time 6.5 GAs?  Thanks again, much appreciated.

    Try below commands.  txt file path - C:\temp\inputFile.txt


    $vmList = Get-Content C:\temp\inputFile.txt

    foreach ($vmName in $vmList) {Get-VM $vmName  | select Name, @{N="VMHost"; E={$_.VMHost.Name}}}

  • 09/28/16--10:47: Re: Storage clustered
  • Yes, if you configure one of the NAS devices so that both host can assess it and see the datastores then HA will restart VMs on the other host if one hosts fails *YOu need to setup a cluster, put the hosts inside it and enable HA)


    If the NAS fails, you can recover the VMs via vSphere Replication UI, you need to manually trigger this otherwise your VMs might get recovered during a "false positive" outage)


    If the VC is down though, then you will not be able to bring up the VMs on the other host with vSphere Replication because you need the VC to be online.


    Solution 1) Store the VC on the other NAS and ensure you have backups

    Solution 2) In the event of main NAS failing, manually bring them online (Search datastore for the replicated VMs and add to the inventory)

    Solution 3) Or build another VC (licensing?) and replicate to a Replication appliance deployted to that VC, store the VC on the other NAS


    Also, ensure you are using RAID on both NAS devices to help prevent any failures.


    For your other question, Your VMs disks and VMs configuration filess should all be stored on the NAS. The host requires a very small amount of space to install ESXi, depending on the evrsion of ESXi it's something like 8GB for the install and some space for logs etc. Recommended option is to install to a USB stick or SD card installed nside the host


    I hope this helps, anything else just ask.

    customer is using UEFI .... is this supported ?

    What is the storage infrastructure?


    Have you looked at HCIBench? It is not CLI-based but does handle deployment of worker VMs to generate workload and can be pointed at a particular datastore.

    UEM has two events in the Application event log, Event ID 256 for import start and 257 for import finish. You could create a scheduled task to run as NT Authority\System based on that event and the action "c:\program files\immidio\flex profiles\flexengine.exe" -UemRefresh Here is a task configured that way that can be imported. This looks like it  might be too early though.:

    If that is too early, you could use a scheduled task with a logon trigger with a delay:

    CustomizeVM is using sysprep to do the customization. Is there any other easy way to just set static IP Address on VM without using sysprep?.


    Any help would be really appreciated.


    Thank you

    Has anyone had a chance to look at this issue?

    To summarize, it is an issue with applications that use the vise.navigator.nodespecs extension point with a parentID of vsphere.core.navigator.solutionsCategory.

  • I know the solution of VSAN, but i don't have any SSD... and i can't buy anyone.

    If i try your solution, i 'll lose 8*600 Gb HDD... sad :-(


    Thank you anyway for your reply Haridas.

    Hi John,


    Why have you enabled DirectFlex for the App-V 5 integrations?

    Why not simply import them at logon, that will solve the timing issue I guess.

    I find this frustrating as well.

    I don't need all the fancy typography from high-dpi displays, necessarily (although that would be nice, too.)

    But, a feature/checkbox to say "scale each virtual display pixel to two physical pixels" would be a fantastic feature.

    I'm using Workstation 12.5, hosting on Windows 10 AE, guests VMs are everything from very old Linux/X11 systems to Windows 7 Pro.


    (Also, "stretch guest" is dimmed for me, I cannot select it!)

    Hello community,


    I need to set up an instance with specific IP. It is on the network which doesn't have DHCP.


    This answer Is there a way to specify static IP for a deploying OVA in the ovftool command? advises to use properties. But I am not using .ovf, but .ova file, and when I do:

    ovftool gateway-9.1.01-6703-vmware-centos-x86_64e.ova


    I get the following info from ova file:


    [13:06:46][Step 5/13] OVF version:   1.0

    As you can see there are no properties for me to configure. So therefore I can't do anything like that:



    So who do I set up this .ova instance with the specific IP on DMZ network?


    I've tried various combination of the following, but unsuccessfully:

    ovftool --nic:ipAddress="" --powerOn --datastore="SSD_Datastore" --noSSLVerify --name="my_name" -dm=thin --network="DMZ" C:\Shared\gateway-9.1.00-6342-vmware-rhel-x86_64.ova vi://root:"my_password"

    I'm running windows 10 enterprise 1604

    followed this guide for optimization VMware Horizon View – Windows 10 Golden Image Creation » ITuDA

    ESXI - 6 u1

    View environment - 6.2.0 build-3005368

    Pure storage solid state

    teridici video

    2 linked clone pools with and without a disposable drive



    log into the vm through Horizon view client everything runs fine no lag in the file explorer.

    when i attach app stacks file explorer slows way down and the more apps i add the slower it gets.

    the file explorer displays "working on it" for 3 - 5 seconds before pulling up anything.

    i have tried starting explorer in "this PC" and in "quick access", still the same results.

    I have probably been going in circles for over a week on this


    i have rebuilt the image, rebuilt the apps, the app capture system, tweaked and tweaked and tweaked the base image , rebuilt the pool several times

    any one else running into this issue?
