You can switch to another console, log in to a new session, and then kill the ping process running in the first console. To switch consoles, just press Alt while pressing the left or right arrow keys. This take me through 6 different consoles.

As you correctly state, all Azure disk storage (except for temporary disks) are replicated 3 times in the same DC, and if you use geo replication than another 3 times in another DC, so realistically disk failure is an unlikely cause. There are a few reasons I could think of that might explain this: As HopelesNoob mention, it could be data corruption, if ...

The problem was due to the machine being cloned. Remote Desktop has a certificate associated with it. That certificate has the machine name within it. If the machine name in the certificate does not match the current machine name, Remote Desktop will not run. To solve this problem: Run the Certificate Manager ( certlm.msc ). Navigate to Remote Desktop -> ...

I raised a ticket with Microsoft and they confirmed that the SQL Express version number caused the problem. Their response was: the product team has confirmed that the "SQL Server 2014 SP1 Express on Windows Server 2012 R2" image was wrongly built by an internal builds (12.0.4193.9). I am not sure when they will have it fixed. As a workaround I ...

You want to add a line like: HWADDR=0A:0B:0C:0D:0E:0F in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ensXX (XX could be some number) using vi - say. then run /etc/init.d/network restart and type ip route and you should have an ip address and default gateway. To get the address you should add, you want to go to virtual machine settings -> hardware -> network ...

When you install a virtual machine, the system uses a slightly different configuration than the normal running configuration (e.g. the installation ISO may be mounted, or PXE boot may be configured). Once installation finishes, the installer is expected to reboot, and instead of rebooting, virt-install shuts down the VM. This is so that it can be ...

I want to sync files from serverA to serverB, but there's no direct connection between them, but I have serverC that can access both serverA and serverB. what worked for me is: on serverC: ssh user@serverA 'rsync -avP -e "ssh -ax user@serverC ssh " /source/files user@serverB:/des/tination'

In a general sense I suspect MTU (frame size) is the root of the problem. I have a few reasons and a few suggestions. First, this behavior varies by L2 (it only happens with the wired traffic as opposed to wireless). That in itself is suspicious and suggests that there is a problem at the interface level. Second, packet fragmentation is a symptom of MTU ...

Solved it! I wrote a batch file and added it to windows start up folder. C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\StartUp Batch file content @echo off net use * /delete /yes cmdkey /add:<yourstorageaccountname>.file.core.windows.net /user:<yourstorageaccountname> ...

The obvious way is to run a login script (either GPO or local policy) to map the drive. Obviously the downside to this is that your storage credentials will be stored in plain text in the login script, you can do some encryption with PowerShell or similar but this still doesn't stop someone walking away with the login script and using it elsewhere. Which I ...

What I do is perform a pair of hot rsyncs from the running Zimbra instance to a second directory. Immediately following the second hot rsync I stop all Zimbra services and perform a cold rsync. Immediately after the cold rsync is completed I start the services back up. From here I can take a backup of the target directory of the rsyncs instead of the ...

Update: Installation of Spice client needs the following (Linux, Kubuntu) - spice-client - spice-vdagent - (optional) spice-vdagent (Windows - Works well with Windows10): Windows binaries Then you need to open ports on your host: 5900 (unsecure), 5901 (secure - needs additional configuration). I did this with gufw, a very simple tool to build a ...

You can use ssh HOST nc as a proxy: Host *.saturnin.* *.saturnin bb-* ProxyCommand ssh -q -A saturnin.lab.eng.brq.redhat.com nc %h %p IdentityFile ~/.ssh/bot_rsa User root Drawback: this requires having entries in /etc/hosts on the host. Alternatively I am using nc with sed to get local name/IP: Host tbb-* ProxyCommand ssh -q -A ...

I tried this link and successfully added existing ARM VM into availability set. but it will deallocate your existing VM creates new VM with same configuration from existing image image You need to create new Availability set and configure it while creating new VM like => $vm=New-AzureRmVMConfig -VMName $vmname -VMSize $vmsize -AvailabilitySetId $avset.Id ...

Yes, that is not recommended approach. Reverse DNS can be set up, for example, you can go with that - https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/azure/mt126026.aspx and set up, but i would recommend to set up the external one or use SendGrid from Azure Marketplace. I believe that was done for the security sake.

You cannot connect these VMs directly to one another. If you want them to be on an isolated virtual network, created a NAT network (or use libvirt's default network), assign all the private network based NICs to that network, and give them IPs that will be able to ping each other.

Well there is still no option in the GUI, but Samir Farhat has written a powershell script which can be used to change the AS of existing VM in ARM mode. AFAIK, this feature may be addressed by the end of this year. It's a big challenge for the MS team to allow such operation. Changing the availability Set requires a review of the VM mobility ...

In order to be in an same availability set the VMs need to be in the same region.

DS-series VMs are capable of using Premium disks for either OS or Data (or both). But the performance will ultimately depend on which type of disk you use. If you use a standard disk, it will perform just like a D-series. In your case, since you created your OS disk as a standard storage VHD, it will have all the performance characteristics of standard ...

Your Classic VMs and ARM VM's can't share the same VNET, they need v1 and v2 VNETs respectively. You could join the two VNETs togther using a VNET to VNET connection, but this document states: A cloud service or a load balancing endpoint CANNOT span across virtual networks, even if they are connected together. This goes for the ARM load balancer as ...

This isn't really an Azure question, its a "how do I do SQL clustering question". You can't just share a SQL database between two VM's and it magically work, you would need to setup your VM's in a cluster to share the SQL workload between them. Clustering in Azure is slightly different than on premises as you can't use shared disk storage for clustering ...

No, this is not directly possible, as the client know nothing about the provisioned storage. You can infer some information using specific client-side benchmarks, though.

A wireshark traffic capture from your Server VM will sure help. You say that the DHCP gives the IP and PXE info right? are you sure you have only one DHCP server in your set up? are you sure the IP that the DHCP server gives belongs to he corresponding sub-net? If you check these things outs you will probably find the client is getting the IP from a ...
