Ever wonder why a VM isn’t on the network? I was working on deploying some test VM’s and for some reason all the VM’s that were cloned decided to start with the network disconnected, and the connect on power on was also not selected. I decided to throw together this quick one-liner that will make sure every VM is set to start connected on power on and is currently connected.
So I am in the process of doing some vSphere 6 testing and needed to test a redeployment of one of my VCSA’s. The problem is when I went to redeploy it I got the following error. Decoding the error, I pretty much figured that the object already existed in the SSO database and I needed to delete the existing object. Here is how you do that. Log in as root to the appliance shell of the Platform Services Controller appliance with which the vCenter Server Appliance is registered.
