Some Resource Groups (Azure) are not visible inside MCS wizard while catalog creation

When creating MCS catalog for Azure, master image need to be selected from its Resource Group.

While doing this, some Resource Groups are visible, and some others are not. All visible and non-visible Resource Groups were created manually and they all were working fine during initial deployment. But some of them are not visible on Studio anymore after some days.

The affected Resource Groups are neither visible in Studio nor in PoSh SDK (image.folder location in XDHyp: Posh drive). However, if we know the Resource Group name, can browse to them by typing the name manually in PoSh SDK. Subscription scope service principal is used for all Resource Groups, and we are also able to browse to them in PoSh SDK. So it is not an access related issue.

If we create new Resource Groups, they are all visible on Studio for master image selection.

Travel Efficiently with PowerEdge Servers and Intel Optane DC Persistent Memory

I spent part of the weekend being an amateur travel agent for my family. It reminded me that the logistical details of travel are like the complexities of data-centric workloads. Data may be our most precious resource, but the speed at which we can access and use it is equally important. Look at it this way: say you were going on a trip, but your luggage was delayed at your connection. All your carefully-packed items are not useful to you until you have them. Data works the same way. We have more data points now from … READ MORE

Increase the number of multirowed dataclass displayed rows in edit page

I need a solution


Is there a way to increase the number of rows displayed on the edit page of a resource?

The default is 5 rows and if dataclass has more, then the scroll bar appears.

I’d like to increase that number to, let’s say 10 or 15.

Attached image for reference shows a class with 4 rows – sometimes we have marginally more than limit (like 6 or 7 rows).

Kind regards.

Deployment Solution Resource Import Tool Image Not Showing Up

I need a solution

I recently added an image via the Deployment Solution Resource Import Tool. The import was successful and I can see it under disk images. When I go to create the deploy take and select the image it is not list. I verified the images is available on the site servers. What am I missing??  Thanks!




Some User Resource Names are being changed

I need a solution

In my environment I have a section of about 200 out of 2200 user resources that are showing up incorrectly. 

For example a user named John Smith with an employee id of 123456 would typical show up as a user resource smit3456. Recently some of the user resources have started showing up as adsmith, john. 

Most of the users we have seen get changed in our environment are using macs or have used a mac. I have looked at the target agent import settings for both mac and pc and everything is setup the same way between the two.

Has anyone else run into an issue like this?




Re: Date Field in Database entry is throwing error

Hi All,

When a clicking on the Date field I am getting an error as below.


404 – File or directory not found.

The resource you are looking for might have been remove, had its name changed, or temporarily unavailable.


Site Administrator is able to access it.Can any one advise what might be the cause of this issue.

Thank you,

Re: Recovery a file from a EMC networker saveset that has expired and no longer browsable

Let me first make these comments:

– A single save set that spans 15 tapes – not a good idea, in general

– Changing the browse (and retention) once the save set is not browsable any more will not repopulate the CFI info which

has been deleted when it changed state from browsable to recoverable/recyclable.

If you really need the CFI info, you must run “scanner -i” for that save set.


In general you have 3 options for a standard file system backup which start the save set as ‘browsable’:

1. Recover by rebuilding the file index info first

Of course the client file index must be available (the metadata must be retrievable within the data stream).

If you have deleted the client in the meantime, you must first

– ensure that you can resolve the hostname (worst case by an entry in the local hosts file)

– recreate a client resource (the exact parameters do not matter because you don’t want to run backups)

– I do not remember exactly any more but you might need to set the browse and retention dates for the save set high

enough so that the current policies would not automatically delete the metadata immediately again.

– rebuild the CFI with “scanner -i”

– recover the file(s)

2. Recover the whole save set to a temp directory and get the file(s) from there.

3. Run a subset recovery like

recover -iR -R <dest_client> -d <dest_directory> -S <ssid> -a “exact_pathname_what_to_recover”

– This of course implies that you know the exact pathname (directory- or file name)

– Be aware that NW will read the whole save set … which may take a while … but only recovers what you want

You better familarize with the command on a small (sub) save set 😉 .


Re: Networker Uptime

Of course Hrvoje’s solution will work … if the current daemon.raw contains that information.

Here is an nsradmin query that will work:


NetWorker administration program.

Use the “help” command for help, “visual” for full-screen mode.


nsradmin> . type: nsr

Current query set


nsradmin> option hidden

Hidden display option turned on

Display options:

Dynamic: Off;

Hidden: On;

Raw I18N: Off;

Resource ID: Off;

Regexp: Off;


nsradmin> show totals since


nsradmin> p

totals since: “Mon Jul 09 22:29:27 2018”;


nsradmin> q

Re: Isilon Aliases In ViPR Controller

The vipr-c online help (if you search for “ifs”) shows the following:


To mount the NFS export, you can look at the order or at the Resources > File Systems page to find its mount point.

For example: 

If you have created a mount-point directory on you system (for example, /mnt/mynfs) the export can then be mounted using:

mount -t nfs /mnt/mynfs

You can add, modify, and remove NFS export rules for a file system at the Resources > File Systems page.


I hope this helps!
