Acer notebooks and IP

March 13th, 2015 5 comments

Our customer bought Acer notebooks and he started to have problem with management server 🙂 Management server has IP address When I checked ARP responses other server using WireShark I found out that there are 10 ARP records for IP address So there were IP conflicts.

WireShark ARP conflict

Customer has IP range and management server has IP Problem is that this stupid Acer Notebooks have same IP address for their ASF and it’s enabled by default.

You can disable/configure ASF using BIOS:

  1. Go to BIOS -> Advanced -> Integrated Peripherals
  2. Set “ASF” to Disabled
  3. Save BIOS settings and restart PC

Have a nice day and don’t buy Acer 😀

Now new version (6) of VMware vShere is released. When you open website for vShere Web Client you get following warning (vmware-csd):

The solution is to install VMware Client Integration Plugin. You can download it from here.

Or you can go all the way down on vShere Web Client website to “black space” and there is installation link for VMware Client Integration Plugin.

Let’s see some more newies from VMWare.
