Sorry for all the downtime, I recently moved over to my own VPS which is hosted by VULTR (pretty decent so far) but I am on the lowest tier with limited memory, was hoping to do all of this for cheap but I just might have to upgrade due to fail2ban using up majority of the resources.
Here is a little preview of the new version, super sorry that it has taken me so long to work on this. I need to add in a few more checks for input validation before I release it to the public but if you’re interested in testing give me a shout and I can send you a link.
Local host support added
Multiple support added (double click the hostname textbox to start the process)
Correct VHD size info and trimmed things back so that they’re readable
New Host Disk tab which displays host disks details
More bug fixes
“Some” code clean up – lots of work to do still
A lot more that I forgot at this point!
There is still a lot of work to do, I need to now think of how to work with clusters and also there is a possibility of SCVMM support.
Please let me know if you can assist in debugging and I can send you an invite to a private chat room.
Hello all, I could use some help with testing out the new version. I have tried it with all of the hardware I have and so far things are running with no issues. This is a beta version (although the entire product should be considered beta as I am still writing it out) and can be downloaded below.
Support for Server 2008/Windows10 is now working (not 100% confident, need help testing against all versions)
Added local host support (if local machine is the VM host, it should load with no issues)
Multi-server support added
Double click the hostname box to enter credentials and select your server list (1 server per line).
Added more logging (still not liking how I am doing this, will most likely revamp logging on official release)
My hopes are that I get confirmation from you lovely people that things are working better than before and from there I will start adding in support for other things (SCVMM, Clusters, etc).
Does anyone know of a good way to chat in real time? Maybe we can start up a chat group so that I can actively fix issues in real time with you guys?
Hello folks, I have sealed the deal on my new hosting and will be migrating things over very soon.
On a side note, I am working on a remake of The Hyper-V Tool with multiple server support, clustering, SCVMM and much more! Lots of things going on, never enough time but please bare with me! Thanks guys!
Hoping this will save someone from a major outtage just to reset a password. If you have a FortiManager in your environment that manages your FortiGate firewalls/proxies/etc then you’re in luck (I hope).
With the FortiManager in place, it has the ability to run CLI commands against the devices it manages. This is a nice feature because otherwise you would have to reboot the device and perform the password recovery steps, which isn’t fun in a production environment.
For those that are interested as to how this all works, during the initial setup of your HA cluster with the FortiManager, you provide it the device serial numbers. The FortiManager then uses this to log into the child devices (kind of like the bcpbSERIALNUMBER login process during password recovery), the child devices allow this communication because they’re already aware of who the FortiManager is.
Log onto the FortiManager in the environment that you want to do the password reset in
Once logged in, under Device Manager tab, select your ADOM
Go to Scripts
Double click and confirm chng-pwd script is as the following (create new if doesn’t exist)
Sorry about that, I recently got married and next week I start my new job….so yeah, I’ve been pretty busy with life in general.
I just uploaded Hyper-V Tools v1.6 to the cloud and if you’re running a older version, you should be prompted to update. If not, then grab the latest version from below (or original thread).
On a side note: I am a utter noob when it comes to GUI design and even the smallest things can be extremely challenging for me to implement, in this case I had to implement additional columns on a per VHD basis but failed miserably, I mean I have been trying to come up with a solution and my brain has already melted and what I produce just does not work. So there is a slight mismatch in information between what the GUI displays and what is outputted to the CSV. The main addition is that in the CSV file, you will have extra columns for VHDs and in the GUI you won’t.
Hopefully I can figure this out and make the GUI pretty but in the mean time, please bare with me.
Here is a simple tool I wrote up to check my servers uptime
The tool does not require to be installed, it can be ran directly wherever you place it. However if you want to use it via command line as I do, then place a copy in your C:\Windows\System32 folder (or a different folder per your environmental PATH variables).
coding, troubleshooting and some explainin, all in a days work for this engineer
