    host os: Windows 10

    VMware workstation 12

    Guest os Linux 4.x 64

    Guest memory size: 12G


    when windows wakes up from sleep, it take quite about 10 minutes of high disk io before disk io LED is quiet.

    i found a solution to this before: execute sync.exe (from cygwin) before sleep, it take about 10 minutes to sync and then sleep, at least it won't do it during wake up when i want to use the computer


    recently i find the real cause, it was the memory map file, the *.vmem file

    prefvmx.minVmMemPct = "100"

    MemTrimRate = "0"

    mainMem.useNamedFile = "FALSE"

    sched.mem.pshare.enable = "FALSE"

    prefvmx.useRecommendedLockedMemSize = "TRUE"

    i use these setting to disable the map file and the problem is gone


    however this solution is not permanent, as soon as i use suspend feature of vmware, a new *.vmem file is generated.

    so the question is, can *.vmem not be sync to disk when it is in memory?

    So I have been dealing with this FCoE issue since we implemented our blades system. We have a C7000 Chassis with 16 Blades and 4 Virtual Connects. We have 2 Brocade switches. VC 1 goes to Brocade 1, VC 2 goes to Brocade 2, VC 3 goes to Brocade 3, and VC 4 goes to Brocade 2. Each blade has 4 HBAs (FCoe) adapters which in each goes to one of the VC's. In the zoning it is configured as Single Initiater to the SAN (we have 4 SANs). The issue we have is I can only have 2 of the HBA adapters active in the Brocade zones other wise we have issues. If only 2 of the 4 are active everything works fine across all SANs, if either 3 or 4 are enabled we have issues. The issues we have are if 3 or 4 adapters are enabled, the 3rd HBA will not see all the LUNs, it will see partial LUNS, and the 4th ones won't see any. I am not able to present new LUNs to them because they will not detect them either, unless I reboot then the LUN i presented will show up. I have a ticket with HP and VMWare and they can not figure it out either. I am on the latest HP firmware, and we have even tried downgrading firmware to see if that helps. Anybody have ideas or am I just out of luck?

    have you enable the vMotion on all of your host or not ,the reason for not power on the second VM in vMotion , for your information you don't need to power on the second VM its auto Power on

    when the Primary VM on and  also check your VM must be on  shared Data Store . you are testing FT on Live  Hosts or Workstation ?

    I suppose the content of the file vms.txt has a list of VM Names.

    So when you import it in the variable $VMs, it has a list of the VM Names. Similarly $VM has a string value with the name of a VM. So in the "$VMDK = $VM | get-harddisk" you are essentially giving a string value and trying to get the Get-Harddisk of the VM. This is obviously failing as the pipeline input should an object.


    Change it to "Get-VM $VM | Get-HardDisk" Should do.



    $VMs = get-content vms.txt


    foreach ($VM in $VMs)


    $VMDK = Get-VM $VM | get-harddisk }

  • Hi Matt



    I implemented something similar to what was recommended here in our live environment yesterday, and so far it seems to work as we'd hoped.


    Thanks for the help with this, really appreciate it

  • Thanks.

    So, update the Virtual Machine needs only for new hardware features? No more secure?

    What ever licences you are using they will need to be upgraded in the vmware portal. eg the 5.8 vrops licences will not work with 6.x vrops and the 5.5 vcloud suit licence will not work with 6.x vrops


    6.x vrops will run and fully supported with vsphere 5.5

    Are you using Player 12.5.1?  There were some issues with networking in 12.5.0.

    Thanks for the suggestion, that is exactly what is happening. I logged in and the cluster (only the 1 node) was at "Failed to Start". I hit Bring Online, and now it is sitting at "Waiting for Analytics".

    I have 7 node cluster with ESXi 6.2 and VSAN enabled all flash, currently i have storage policy with Fault Tolerance method RAID-1 (Mirroring) - Performance,


    i need to change it to Raid-5/6 (Erasure Coding), Can this be done live without affecting the VMs running in the cluster?

    Yes, this is certainly possible, and common.  One solution is found on Ulli's page - transparent bridge.
