Last week I encountered a bug in the VMware WebClient in conjunction with NSX. When a VM is selected, no information about NSX Security Tags and Groups is displayed in the summary. Instead, only rotating circles are visible.Continue reading
After VMware released vSphere 6.7 Update 1 all want to install it. But many of them didn’t check the interoperatibility with, for example, the backup software. So… Veeam Backup and Replication 9.5 U3 not supports vSphere 6.7 Update 1.

VMware acknowledged a known issue (KB2136854) within ESXi 6.0 and 6.0 U1. CBT looses the information of I/Os during snapshot consolidation. The main backup isn’t affected but all data written during the consolidation task are missed.
ALL CBT incremental backups are potentially affected.
VMware currently has no resolution.
VMware released a patch for the CBT bug.
VMware ESXi 6.0, Patch ESXi600-201511401-BG: Updates esx-base (2137546)
The VMware Labs engineers built a fling to migrate a vCenter Server installed on a Windows Server to the vCenter Server Appliance.
For me the greatest limitation is that Windows Server 2012 a higher isn’t supported yet. Because of “winexe-bug” the migration appliance could not get the data from the source machine. William Lam told me that the engineers know about this issue and hopes that it would be fixed soon.
For all of you who could not wait… maybe I’ve a workaround.
