    VM Enthusiasts -- A bit of Learning for you Today -- BIOS in a VM


    Hi folks

    If you are interested in how VM's work and the underlying software behind the VM's other than just using them -- how a bit of a little learning for the New Year !!!

    I think you might find this article on SeaBios which is used in some HYPERVISORS as the BIOS for Guest VM's interesting.

    SeaBIOS - Wikipedia

    Cheers

  2. Account failed logon 4625 on VM guest when clicking the entry of VM guest on failover cluster Manager on VM Host

    Issue:

    We found a multiple failed logon events on VM guest (evert ID 4625) with account (the account you logon on VM host) when we clicking the entry of VM guest on failover cluster manager console on VM host with Integration servers (Data Exchange) is enabled.



    How to reproduce:

    1. Check the “Data Exchange” is enabled on a VM guest (Enabled by default, right?)
    2. Open Failover Cluster Manager Console on VM host.
    3. Click the VM guest entry
    4. Then you may found multiple failed logon events on that VM guest.


    Reference:

    Hyper-V Integration Services



    Question:

    1. Does the multiple failed logons are normal or necessary?
    2. If the failed logons are normal and necessary to be happened and the “Data exchange” function is good to be enabled to gather data from VM guest, any recommendation for us to correct or avoid these failed logon?


    Please advise.



    Constrain:

    We have no chance to use same account and password on VM hosts and VM guests (because all account are managed by password management) and the Audit Policy of Audit Credential Validation must be enabled.

    VM Licenses

    I'm using a Dell PC with a factory installed OEM version of Windows 10 Pro.

    My work requires me to use program editing software from many different vendors, these software titles often don't work well and can cause issue with the PC they are installed on. My thought is to isolate them by using VMs with the software for each vendor
    installed on it's own VM - isolated from my Host and the other VMs I would use for other editors.

    My new PC with Win10 OEM would be the host. Only 1 VM would be used on the host at a time but there would be as many as 10 different VMs I could run on the host.

    Can I copy my host OS to the VM with my OEM license?

    If I can't, and I need a new license for the VMs can I use 1 license for the multiple VMs?

    Is there an upgrade from OEM to FPP ?

    Remote Server Administration Tools on a VM

    I am running Windows 10 Pro version 1803 64 bit. It is running as a VM on a Macbook Pro with Parallels. I am unable to find RSAT on the list of available options.

    Thx
