  • Route RPKI validation April 1st, 2022
    RPKI is a security framework by which network owners can validate and secure the critical route updates or Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) announcements between public Internet networks. BGP is essentially the central nervous system of the Internet and one of its fundamental building blocks. The main function of BGP is to facilitate efficient routing between Autonomous Systems (AS), by building and maintaining the Internet routing table. The Internet routing table is effectively the navigation system of the Internet and without it, traffic would be unable to flow between its constituent networks. Unfortunately, routing equipment alone cannot distinguish between legitimate and malicious routing announcements,...
  • RIPE – Atlas Anchor February 17th, 2022
    We have become an even more integral part of the RIPE Atlas project by hosting an anchor, a device that allows for latency analysis of traffic between autonomous systems.https://atlas.ripe.net/probes/7073/RIPE Atlas anchors play an integral role in the RIPE Atlas network by acting both as enhanced RIPE Atlas probes with more measurement capacity, as well as regional measurement targets within the greater RIPE Atlas network. Anchors are able to perform many more measurements than a regular RIPE Atlas probe, and the large amount of data they collect is made available to everyone. In addition, anchors act as powerful targets that can...
  • MANRS June 20th, 2020
    GOLINE firmly believes in initiatives to protect networks, improve security and resilience of the global routing system. Therefore we decided to support the MANRS project and join as participants.Mutually Agreed Norms for Routing Security (MANRS) is a global initiative, supported by the Internet Society, that provides crucial fixes to reduce the most common routing threats. MANRS offers specific actions via four programs for Network Operators, Internet Exchange Points, CDN and Cloud Providers, and Equipment Vendors. Requirements for Participation Please read the full MANRS Actions document before applying. You can become a participant if you meet these requirements: You (or your company) support...

VMware Horizon: cancellare gli Instant Clone

VMware Horizon 7.12: cancellare gli Instant Clone


Quando il pol viene disabilitato, le repliche utilizzate dagli Instant Clone non vengono rimosse automaticamente da vSphere e sebbene non utilizzino risorse, consumano spazio.

La problematica può essere riscontrata quando vengono disabilitati i Desktop Pool in VMware Horizon manager tramite l'opzione Status > Disable Desktop Pool.



Nonostante il pool sia disabilitato, gli oggetti cp-parent e cp-replicate non sono rimossi dall'ambiente vSphere.


Sfortunatamente l'opzione Delete from disk presente in vSphere Web Client non è utilizzabile per questi oggetti e quindi non possono essere rimossi.


Per risolvere questa situazione, l'installazione di Horizon include l'Instant Clone Cleanup Tool implementato per rimuovere questi oggetti da vSphere.


Cancellare gli Instant Clone

Effettuare il login nel Sever Windows dove è installato Horizon Connection Server ed aprire il Command Prompt. Posizionarsi nella cartella C:Program FilesVMwareVMware ViewServertoolsbin> ed eseguire il seguente comando per connettersi al vCenter:

iccleanup.cmd -vc <vCenter> -uid administrator@vsphere.local -skipCertVeri

cd Program FilesVMwareVMware ViewServertoolsbin
C:…bin>iccleanup.cmd -vc vcsa01 -uid administrator@lab.local -skipCertVeri


Digitare il comando list per visualizzare gli oggetti disponibili:

> list


Identificare l'indice del gruppo di VM interne da rimuovere e lanciare il comando:

> delete –index 1


Ora verificare se il gruppo è stato rimosso:

> back
> list


Le VM interne sono state rimosse correttamente. Verificando nel vSphere Web Client, ora non ci sono oggetti presenti nel Resource Pool.

L'Instant Clone Cleanup Tool è molto utile per rimuovere i cloni inutilizzati lasciati dal sistema e per liberare spazio nello storage.
