ESXi 6.5 Update 1: Anyone that knows how to edit the port groups of live VMs?

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/08/31

Anyone that knows how to edit the port groups of ESXi 6.5 Update 1 live VMs?

This worked fine in the C# based Windows vSphere Client, but not in the web-client.

When pressing Save, you get this error: Failed to reconfigure virtual machine [[vmname]]. The attempted operation cannot be performed in the current state (Powered on). - dismiss.

You have to edit because of This VM is attached to a network portgroup VM Network Fiber xs4all that doesn't exist. Edit this VM and attach it to a different network. Actions.

If seems a known issue at [] ESXi Embedded Host Client – Bugs: #88 Error while editing a VM more than once, but it is unclear how these bugs are tracked and in which of the labs versions any of the bus are fixed ([] @jpluimers: Hi @elesueur ! …How can we track progress at VMware Labs Flings?).

The big problem is that the vSphere Web Client is nearly covering the vSphere Windows Client, but as of VMware ESXi 6.5 update 1, the vSphere Windows Client cannot be used any more:

Delphi code completion but more relaxed

From my link archive:

Both via I remember someone in this group showed a prototype of a ‘code-completion’ replacement IDE expert, which supports fuzzy matching of method names you typed [WayBack]

If I remember correctly, the Kibitz compiler started to expose less functionality around the Delphi 7 or Galileo era rendering many of the GExperts additions useless. Not sure about the current state of that now.

Delphi TGridPanel – how to get all SizeStyle=ssPercent cells to get the same auto-calculated Value – via StackOverflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/08/31

If you want to set all columns to the same value, select all columns in the structure view and then (assuming SizeStyle [WayBack] is already set to ssPercent [WayBack]) set the Value [WayBack] to 0. This will trigger some automatism that makes all of the columns sized equal.

Great answer by Uwe Raabe [WayBack]
