My root passw for vCenter Appliance has expired and I need to boot it from Linux Live-CD in order to recover it, now whenever I reboot the vCenter Appl. within the vSphere console, I loose connection to the vSphere very soon. I access vSphere Web with https://10.0.22.2:9443 and vCenter Appliance with https://esxi:5480 (both vSphere and vCener Appliance are on the same IP).
For one of my Server2k8 VMs on an ESXi host, I accidentally set all vSphere users/groups to read-only so all vSphere management options are disabled. We can log into the ESXi host as root and manage the VM but it does not show us the vSphere users so we can't change them from read-only back to administrator.
Are there any vSphere CLI options or other work arounds to fix this?
We are using vSphere 5.5.0.
Using the vSphere Web Client, when I create a new VM or add a new NIC to an old VM, if I tick "connect" for the VM nentwork, the task is completed without error.
But when I reopen the settings window the checkmark is missing again and the VM is not connected to the Network.
The problem occours for every user, every VM on every host.
VMware vSphere 4
SAN storage with multiple data-stores
I shut-down a virtual machine and using the data-store browser did a copy/paste to copy the VM to a new datastore with additional space. The file copy performance was very poor, and due to time constraints I decided to cancel the copy task.
