Constant RDP disconnects from Windows 2012 on VMware

Running Windows Server 2012 virtual machine on VMware ESXi hypervisor and receive constant disconnects through RDP.

Checked the logs and found out e1qexpress which indicates incompatibility of virtualNIC
Power down the machine, remove existing network interface and add a new one based on VMXNET3.
Bring the machine up and Windows should automatically apply the changes.

 

Constant restarting of opscode-erchef – bad gateway

I’ve freshly installed Chef Server 12.7.0 on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and opscode-erchef kept getting restarted approx every 40 seconds and was getting Bad Gateway error.

Checked the logs unfortunately, couldn’t conclude anything out of it. Found this open issue with Chef https://github.com/chef/chef-server/issues/435

By cleaning and re-configuring the server everything worked.

$ chef-server-ctl cleanse
$ chef-server-ctl reconfigure
