Hyper-V Quick Tip: Safely Shutdown a Guest with Unresponsive Mouse

Q: A virtual machine running Windows under Hyper-V does not respond to mouse commands in VMConnect. How do I safely shut it down?

A: Use a combination of VMConnect’s key actions and native Windows key sequences to shut down.

Ordinarily, you would use one of Hyper-V’s various “Shut Down” commands to instruct a virtual machine to gracefully shut down the guest operating system. Otherwise, you can use the guest operating system’s native techniques for shutting down. In Windows guests running the full desktop experience, the mouse provides the easiest way. However, any failure of the guest operating system renders the mouse inoperable. The keyboard continues to work, of course.

Shutting Down a Windows Guest of Hyper-V Using the Keyboard

Your basic goal is to reach a place where you can issue the shutdown command.

Tip: Avoid using the mouse on the VMConnect window at all. It will bring up the prompt about the mouse each time unless you disable it. Clicking on VMConnect’s title bar will automatically set focus so that it will send most keypresses into the guest operating system. You cannot send system key combinations or anything involving the physical Windows key (otherwise, these directions would be a lot shorter).

  1. First, you need to log in. Windows 10/Windows Server 2016 and later no longer require any particular key sequence to bring up a login prompt — pressing any key while VMConnect has focus should show a login prompt. Windows 8.1/Windows Server 2012 R2 and earlier all require a CTRL+ALT+DEL sequence prior to making log in available. For those, click Action on VMConnect’s menu bar, then click Ctrl+Alt+Delete. If your VMConnect session is running locally, you can press the CTRL+ALT+END sequence on your physical keyboard instead. However, that won’t work within a remote desktop session.

    You can also press the related button on VMConnect’s button bar immediately below the text menu. It’s the button with three small boxes. In the screenshot above, look directly to the left of the highlighted text.
  2. Log in with valid credentials. Your virtual machine’s network likely does not work either, so you may need to use local credentials.
  3. Use the same sequences from step 1 to send a CTRL+ALT+DEL sequence to the guest.
  4. In the overlay that appears, use the physical down or up arrow key until Task Manager is selected, then press Enter. The screen will look different on versions prior to 10/2016 but will function the same.
  5. Task Manager should appear as the top-most window. If it does, proceed to step 6.
    If it does not, then you might be out of luck. If you can see enough of Task Manager to identify the window that obscures it, or if you’re just plain lucky, you can close the offending program. If you want, you can just proceed to step 6 and try to run these steps blindly.
    1. Press the TAB key. That will cause Task Manager to switch focus to its processes list.
    2. Press the up or down physical arrow keys to cycle through the running processes.
    3. Press Del to close a process.
  6. Press ALT+F to bring up Task Manager’s file menu. Press Enter or N for Run new task (wording is different on earlier versions of Windows).
  7. In the Create new task dialog, type 
    shutdown /s /t 0. If your display does not distinguish, that’s a zero at the end, not the letter O. Shutting down from within the console typically does not require administrative access, but if you’d like, you can press Tab to set focus to the Create this task with administrative privileges box and then press the Spacebar to check it. Press Enter to run the command (or Tab to the OK button and press Enter).

Once you’ve reached step 7, you have other options. You can enter cmd to bring up a command prompt or powershell for a PowerShell prompt. If you want to tinker with different options for the shutdown command, you can do that as well. If you would like to get into Device Manager to see if you can sort out whatever ails the integration services, run devmgmt.msc (use the administrative privileges checkbox for best results).

Be aware that this generally will not fix anything. Whatever prevented the integration services from running will likely continue. However, your guest won’t suffer any data loss. So, you could connect its VHDX file(s) to a healthy virtual machine for troubleshooting. Or, if the problem is environmental, you can safely relocate the virtual machine to another host.

VMware Project Dimension to deliver managed HCI, edge networking

VMware is developing a managed edge appliance that has compute and storage for running applications and a software-defined WAN for connecting to the data center and public clouds.

The upcoming offering is in technical preview under the name Project Dimension. The product is a lightweight hyper-converged infrastructure system that includes the vSphere infrastructure compute stack and the vSAN software-defined storage product.

For networking, Project Dimension uses VMware’s NSX SD-WAN by VeloCloud, which VMware acquired last year. The VeloCloud SD-WAN provides connectivity to the corporate data center, SaaS or applications running on IaaS.

Project Dimension is essentially the branch version of VMware’s Cloud Foundation, which merges compute, storage and network provisioning to simplify application deployment in the data center and the Amazon and Microsoft Azure public clouds. Companies could use Project Dimension to run IoT and other software in retail stores, factories and oil rigs, according to VMware. Actual hardware for the system would come from VMware partners.

Companies already using Cloud Foundation could apply their policies and security to applications running on Project Dimension.

“There’s a lot of potential for operational simplicity. There’s the potential for improved multi-cloud management, and there’s the potential for faster time to market [for users’ applications],” said Stephen Elliot, an analyst at IDC.

But Project Dimension’s hybrid cloud approach — which lets companies run some applications at the edge, while also connecting to software running in the cloud — could eventually make it a “niche product,” said Andrew Froehlich, president of computer consultancy West Gate Networks, based in Loveland, Colo.

“While hybrid architectures are extremely common today, most businesses are looking to get to a 100% public cloud model as soon as they can,” he said. “Thus, it’s an interesting concept — and one that some can use — but I don’t see this making a significant impact long term.”

How Project Dimension works as a managed service

VMware plans to offer Project Dimension as a managed service. A company would order the service by logging into the VMware Cloud and going to its Edge Portal, where the business would choose a Project Dimension resource cluster and a service-level agreement.

Businesses would then upload the IP addresses of the edge locations, where VMware would send technicians to install the Project Dimension system. Each system would appear as a separate cluster in the Edge Portal.

VMware plans to use its cloud-based lifecycle management system to fix failures and handle infrastructure firmware and software updates. As a result, companies could focus on developing and deploying business applications without having to worry about infrastructure maintenance.

VMware, which introduced Project Dimension last week at the VMworld conference in Las Vegas, did not say when it would release the product. Also, the company did not disclose pricing.

Hi, you are looking at my ad for my dell optiplex 780 usff desktop pc, which is running Windows 10, i upgraded to Windows 10 for free when it was available, and I’m told it’ll still be on there after I’ve reset everything?, it will come with a logitech k400 plus lightweight keyboard with built in track mouse, internally the computer spec is decent considering it’s age, it has 4gb corsair xms3 ddr3 1333 ram, 120gb crucial ssd & an Intel core 2 duo e8600 @ 3.33ghz,I’ve only ever used the computer for watching /streaming movies online which it has no issues doing, it also boots up extremely fast only thing i will say is that it hasn’t been used for the last year or so, and when I turn it on it’s saying internal battery voltage low, so either the battery needs charged as it’s not been used for a while or swapped for a new one, no sure tbh, anyway everything works 100% & is in excellent condition.

Also included will be 2 display port to hdmi cables, please note display port only does video no audio.
