Teradici Management Console 1.7.1

April 17th, 2012 | Posted by spritian in PCoIP | VMware - (1 Comments)

Just a quick note to help other ESXi 5 admins… The package Teradici provides for this gives an ollllld vmx and vmdk. The simplest way to get it to work on ESXi 5 is to convert the disk like so:


vmkfstools -i teradici.vmdk teradici-new.vmdk -d thin

Do this via ssh on the ESXi host… Next, edit the settings of the vmx in vSphere, remove the unsupported devices, and add a new Hard Drive attaching the converted disk. Lastly, upgrade the Hardware to version 8 and it should work flawlessly!

EVGA 124-IP-PD02 Random disconnects

I’d figure that it would be a good idea to post this to help others using an EVGA 124-IP-PD02 with VMware View 5.

If you see this error in your log…


0d,00:00:29> LVL:2 RC: 0 GSOAP :SOAP 1.2 fault: SOAP-ENV:Sender [no subcode]
0d,00:00:29> LVL:2 RC: 0 GSOAP :"End of file or no input: 'Bad file number'" Detail: [no detail]
0d,00:00:29> LVL:2 RC: 0 MGMT_CMI :Failed to communicate with https://�*�:50000
0d,00:00:29> LVL:2 RC: 0 MGMT_CMI :Failed multiple attempts to contact SOAP server!

Your user might be getting random disconnects. The solution? ASSIGN A STATIC IP!

Not sure why we have this issue at our office, but assigning an IP fixed it… I’ll look into it more, but this is a temp workaround…
