VMware Workstation自动打开vCenter虚拟机的控制台

如果你的Windows 10电脑上装了VMware Workstation和VMware Remote Console,当你在vSphere Web Client里打开运行在vCenter上的虚拟机控制台时,VMware Workstation可能会代替VMware Remote Console自动连接到控制台。恭喜!你的VMware Remote Console被劫持了。这个问题解决起来比较复杂所以我叫它“劫持”。

网上有一篇文章谈到这个问题。VMware Workstation 12 Hijacks VMware Remote Console. 但不知道为什么在我的Windows 10电脑上没法修复。研究了一下,最终找到了一个解决方案。

  1. 找到VMware Remote Console执行文件vmrc.exe的路径. 比如我的路径是 C:Program Files (x86)VMwareVMware Remote Consolevmrc.exe

  2. 运行 regedit 打开注册表编辑器.

  3. 在 HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTvmrc 下把 DefaultIcon 键值改为"C:Program Files (x86)VMwareVMware Remote Consolevmrc.exe" "%1"

  4. 在路径 HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTvmrcshellopen下把 command 键值改为"C:Program Files (x86)VMwareVMware Remote Consolevmrc.exe",0

注意 :在这两个键值处只可修改路径不可以修改其他参数。


如果你的Windows 10和我一样装了VMware Workstation、VMware Remote Console、VMware vSphere Client、VMware Client Integration Plug-in等,那这个问题基本无法避免,因为VMware对于这几个软件在同一台电脑的安装是有顺序要求的。依次是VMware Remote Console → VMware Workstation → VMware vSphere Client → VMware Client Integration Plug-in。具体参考VMware知识库Installing the VMware Remote Console fails with the error: VMInstallHcmon - Failed to install hcmon driver.

Connect-NsxtServer shows "Unable to connect to the remote server"

When you run Connect-NsxtServer in the PowerCLI, it may show "Unable to connect to the remote server".  Because the error message is a little bit confusing with other login issues. It's not easy to troubleshoot. The actual reason is the NSX-T uses a self-signed certificate, and the PowerCLI cannot accept the certificate automatically. The fix is super easy. You need to set the PowerCLI to ignore the invalid certificate with the following command: Set-PowerCLIConfiguration -Scope User -InvalidCertificateAction:Ignore -Confirm:$false

Setup Terraform and Ansible for Windows provisionon CentOS

Provisioning Windows machines with Terraform is easy. Configuring Windows machines with Ansible is also not complex. However, it's a little bit challenging to combine them. The following steps are some ideas about handling a Windows machine from provisioning to post configuration without modifying the winrm configuration on the guest operating system. Install required repos for yum. yum -y install yum -y install yum -y install yum -y install epel-release yum -y install yum-utils yum-config-manager --add-repo Install  Terraform . sudo yum -y install terraform Install  Ansible . sudo yum -y install ansible Install  Kerberos . yum -y install gcc python-devel krb5-devel krb5-libs krb5-workstation

How to List All Users in Terraform Cloud

Terraform has a rich API. However, the API documentation does not mention how to list all users. We can leverage the organization membership API and the PowerShell command  Invoke-RestMethod  to get a user list. 1. Create an organization token in Terraform Cloud. 2. Create the token variable ( $Token ) in PowerShell. $Token = "abcde" 3. Create the API parameters variable in PowerShell. $params = @{ Uri = "" Authentication = "Bearer" Token = $Token ContentType = "application/vnd.api+json" } Note: You need to replace ZHENGWU with your own organization name. And I used 100 at the end of the URI to retrieve the first 100 users. It can be any number.  4. Retrieve the API return and list the user's email address. $Test = Invoke-RestMethod @params $
