Everything was working perfect until yesterday, my VPN client refused to connect to the server. I thought it was a temporary server issue until next day, I still couldn't connect. I uninstalled the client, made sure all flies got deleted, restarted my laptop (Dell Latitude E6400), re-installed the VPN client, and still no luck. I was getting the error as shown in the screenshot below.
I checked my windows services (Start -> Run -> services.msc) and made sure that the Cisco Anytime Connect service is running with local system account Log On. I restarted the laptop and tried connecting again, No help.
So, I raised a case with my company helpdesk. They changed the binding order of my laptop's network adapter so that the Ethernet connection (RJ-45) takes precedence over the wireless connection (See how to change the binding order) . I went back home and tried connecting and it failed again. Weird.. what could be the problem?
So again I took my laptop to the service engineer.…
In case you are stuck with this error, here is what I found. Problem -
While trying to clone a virtual machine from a template or a VM (ESX 4.1), I get an "Invalid configuration for device '0' " error after the cloning was about 80% complete.
Only items I changed for the VM (Edit Virtual Hardware option) were the MAC address for the NIC from Automatic to Manual and the ISO device type to "Client Device".
What I did was to clone the virtual machine with the default settings and then make the required changes after it completes.
Hope this helps someone!
I am always amazed by my dad's energy and drive. He is running 71 and still feels he is 18. He is a great teacher be it life, science, literature, art, history, geography, world politics, anything under the sun. When we were kids, he used to always teach us the importance of "mens sana in corpore sano", meaning a healthy mind inside a healthy body. Check out his bio in his own words. - dad, you rock!
