What information do you actually want to get? Get-VMHost has a field for build. This will give you the ESXi build number, which is a more reliable way of telling which version of ESXi you are on than the version number (as the build number also accounts for patches and mid version updates). There is also a field for Version There's also a field for ...

Visit your BIOS config page and check processor settings. Do you see a value of "4" for "Number of Cores per Processor"? Also, can you provide the build number of your ESXi installation? This could also be a bug (less likely).

You would download the patches from here: You would apply the patches using the ESXi command line and following VMware's instructions. In the end, you're basically putting the host in maintenance mode and running something like: esxcli software vib install -d "/path/to/patch/ESXi500-201111001.zip" The patches are cumulative (kinda), so you only need the ...

iPXE approach is really a cowboy hack. The answer to your question is "No"; do not expect any standard PXE client (including VMware PXE ROMs) letting you set any DHCP option.

From (the little) that i know: If you own the domain name and this domain name is registered to a Registration Authority and the entry is being added correctly into the Zone file of a Name Server and the propagation time is elapsed (depending on the TLS setted in Zone file) Then it should work

As it says in the event log error description, this will almost certainly be a fault with the system hardware, which can be a rather nebulous concept when talking about virtual guests. I would be looking very hard at the storage subsystem - Given my recent experiences with virtual clusters built on Dell servers I would suspect either an issue with network ...

You'd probably want to use the Get-VMHostNetworkAdapter cmdlet. In particular, using the -VMKernel switch to only get the host's management interfaces. Something like this: Get-VMHost <hostname> | Get-VMHostNetworkAdapter -VMKernel

I was trying to do just what you described; boot the client computers over LAN using a PXE and TFTP server that pushes a customized image of Live Ubuntu that has Horizon Client installed. This involves some work, and it tried it in my company's lab, and it worked successfully. First, I downloaded the Ubuntu Linux 14.04.2 LTS Desktop 64-bit ISO file ...

Then setup a terminal server for your users to work with. What you want to do is like multiple PCs using only one hard disk, which just can't work, at least in write mode.
