Part 3: Architect and Create Cloud Services Organizations for Skyline

Welcome back for Part 3 of Architecting and Creating Cloud Services Organizations for Skyline. Let’s review, in Part 1 we stepped through creating a Cloud Services Organization for Skyline. In Part 2, we deployed a Skyline Collector, registered it with our Cloud Services Organization, and added a vCenter Server and Horizon Connection Server to the

Hyper-V encountered an error trying to access an object on computer


I was taking on online course for learning MS Server 2012 R2. The course had me install vmware which the eval license expired before I could complete the course. So I thought I would follow along using Hyper-v, but when I tried to open it I got the error
below. This is on a computer that I am running MS Server 2012 R2 and it has worked before on this machine. Can anyone please help me get past this?

Thank you,

Can I replicate between two servers in different domains?


I’ve done replications between servers all the time - sometimes they aren’t on the same subnet but never between two domains - first time - not sure if there is something different I need to do.

I have two servers each host running 2016 (and all guest VMs are 2016).   I have set up a trust between the two and conditional forwarders.  I can ping each server by name.

I have the hyperV settings set for kerberos.   I’ve disabled all firewalls on both servers - there are
NO firewall policies, rules, or anything else between the two domains.    All firewalls are disabled.

When I set up a replication from one host to other using kerberos, I get these two messages

event 3200 Hyper-V failed to enable replication for virtual machine ‘Test’: A connection with the server could not be established (0x00002EFD). (Virtual machine ID 71EFDF26-BD0D-4C85-81FB-6C6918AA036E)

THis is the setting on the server I’m replicating from - 

Not sure if that ! about configuration details is the source of the issue.

These are settings on the server I’m replicating to - 

event 29230 Hyper-V cannot connect to the specified Replica server ‘HOST1’. Error: A connection with the server could not be established (0x00002EFD). Verify that the specified server is enabled as a Replica server, allows inbound connection on port
‘443’, and supports the same authentication scheme.

Hyper-V Virtual Network Switch – Missing SIP traffic

SIP traffic is mirrored in a switch and sent to both a PBX and a standalone server, which hosts our call recording software. The standalone server is old and we intend to replace it with a Server 2016 virtual machine (Hyper-V).

When the Ethernet cable (mirrored SIP traffic) is moved from the existing server to the VM, SIP traffic is dropped / not found (WireShark) - return the cable to the existing server and the SIP traffic is present. If the same cable is connected to a laptop
the SIP traffic is visible in WireShark.

Both Antivirus and Firewall have been disabled on the VM. The virtual network switch is configured as External and allows network/internet connectivity i.e. ping and browse websites etc.

Any help would be appreciated, thank you

Deploying SBC environment on Windows Server Hyper-V

Hello all,

What exactly does it mean to build an SBC environment using RDVH and RDSH in a Windows Server Hyper-V environment? Is this possible? Isn’t it possible that the implications of VDI and SBC are indistinguishable?

Assuming that you have created a collection of Unmanaged Pool-style VMs that have installed the programs that users need on Windows Server 2016 servers and are used by domain users, is this an SBC? VDI?

Hopefully, many of you would leave your thinking, opinion or idea.

Hyper-V Host Server treating direct logins as "Remote" Logins after RDS Role installed.

Hello All.

I’m busy with an installation for a clien using "Server 2019" as the Hyper-V Host Server.

On the host I am running two (2) Hyper-V OSEs, also Server 2019 Standard. One acts as the AD Domain Controller, the other is acting as an APP Server for their Financial software on which they need remote access. Everything runs fine through the entire configuration
right up to the point after I added the Remote Desktop Services Role. From there on the whole thing goes bonkers. 

When I log back in after a restart, the profiles under C:Users are all messed up. "domainAdministrator" is gone and there are folders like "Administrator.000", a file that looks like a VHD, I’m guessing this is a Remote Desktop User

Sometimes it would all of a sudden block my login attempts saying: "To sign in remotely, you need the right to sign in through Remote Desktop Services. By default…. blah blah bla." So I am physically logging into that server "on" Hyper-V,
but it is treating the login as a "Remote" login.

I thought it might be a bug in Server 2019, so I installed 2016, and it is doing exactly the same. I am doing the RDS configuration to the letter as per Microsoft, I am just not using the RD Gateway. 

Could someone "pleaaaase" tell me why this is happening? I have to deliver the server to site in two days.

Kind Regards and thank you in advance.

Virtualization Setup

Hi Guys,

1. Does the unlimited virtualization in Windows Server 2016/2019 datacenter mean that the guest machines (VMs) don’t have to be licensed, and will automatically be licensed upon creation? And what previous OS versions are allowed when for example you have
a 2016 DC license, and your guests run 2008 or 2012?

2. After licensing my servers which i want to cluster, do i still need CAL licenses, and how should these be applied if I’ll need them?

3.What replciation should i use, hyper-v or storage replica  to replicate the volumes on my storage, which will be a HPE MSA hosting the VMs

4. Is automatic fail-over possible for my new setup, where my clusters will be 500miles apart, and what are the minimum requirements to achieve such?

Your help will be highly appreciated.
