Virtual Machine Cloning Is Failed At 33%

I got two exactly same hardware, installed same ESXi version. Somehow cloning from  other ESXi to one server was working, but another one always failed at 33%. It only impacts to existing VM cloning but not impact to new created virtual  machines. I spent lot time on the troubleshooting. We replaced cables, switch ports, reinstalled ESXi. There was no  abnormal logs except following: 2017-11-15T05:47:36.023Z [FFF001A0 verbose 'NfcManager' opID=F39DF7E6-00002211-da-c-bf] [NfcClient] Closing NFC connection to server 2017-11-15T05:47:36.023Z [FFF001A0 warning 'Libs' opID=F39DF7E6-00002211-da-c-bf] SSL: Unknown SSL Error 2017-11-15T05:47:36.023Z [FFF001A0 info 'Libs' opID=F39DF7E6-00002211-da-c-bf] SSL Error: error:1409E10F:SSL routines:SSL3_WRITE_BYTES:bad length VMware support eventually provided me following KB to workaround the problem.

How To Get Used Space By PowerShell

早上Vinny醒来后不知怎么了大哭着要妈妈,不让奶奶和我接近他。看到他满脸是泪和鼻涕,拿了张纸去给他擦,结果这小子又踢又蹬十分剧烈的反抗。当时没忍住一下盛怒,大声地训斥Vinny并让他闭嘴不准哭。小家伙一下子很害怕的忍住不哭,但是表情又很憋屈的样子,能看得出来他心里一定十分的愤怒、伤心、害怕。忽然意识到如果我这样用威严和大声的训斥他来压制他,可能会导致他的个性变得非常容易屈从于权威。如果以后老师也这么对待他,他可能都不敢回来给家长投诉。 赶紧跑出去叫他奶奶进来安慰他,心里一下又紧张着急的不行,因为确实把他吓得不轻。不停的抽涕,但又不敢哭。以后真不应该这样了,作为父亲,我希望我和他的关系更亲近,而不是疏离。要不停的告诉自己要有耐心...今天是我做的不对,我并没有告诉他为什么我那么生气,而只是训斥他。以后要多一些耐心,对其他人也一样。
