What is Clock Rate and Why is it Set

Clock rate is set or provided to fix the speed at which the data is to be received.
DCEs and DTEs are used in WAN connections. The communication via a WAN connection is maintained by providing a clock rate that is acceptable to both the sending and the receiving device.
For example, if a device connected via a WAN link is sending its signal at 1.544 Mbps, each receiving device must use a clock, sending out a sample signal every 1/1,544,000th of a second. The timing in this case is extremely short. The devices must be able to synchronize to the signal that is sent and received very quickly.
By assigning a clock rate to the router, the timing is set. This allows a router to adjust the speed of its communication operations, thereby synchronizing with the devices connected to it.
Clock rate is set on Router’s Serial Interface, if the router is running as a DCE (Data Communication Equipment). Generally clock rate is provided by teleco or Internet Service Provider through CSU/DSU in this case the router is said to be as DTE (Data Terminal Equipment) Device.Command to set Clock rate on Cisco Router
Router(config-if)#clock rate 1000000

Note:- New ISR Routers adjust Clock rate automatically by detecting DCE connections and set clock rate to 2000000 Router(config-if)#clock rate 1000000

a file I/O error has occurred while accessing vmware converter

While converting physical Windows 7 machine to Virtual machine of infrastructure type, I got this error. The error seems it is unable to read/write source or destination datastore.

I have installed VMware-converter-en-6.2.0-8466193 on Windows 7 physical machine with option locally selected. (not at server/client option)

All of my ESXi servers are connected to the vCenter Server, so I had to use vCenter Server's IP address to send this physical machine to the virtual world.

The issue i found was with the dns resolution to the vCenter Server's hostname. Since I am not using the same dns server on the Windows 7 client machine. So I updated the host entries manually for the vCenter Server's hosname to it IP address.

After adding dns eteries to the hostfile of windows 7, I am not getting this "a file I/O error has occurred while accessing vmware converter" and the migration has started.

Connection control operation failed for disk 'ide1:0'

I was getting this error while removing Operating System ISO image mounted on the Virtual Machine.

What worked for me, is
1. Uncheck the "Connected and Connect at power on" from Device Status.
2. Then Change the Device type from "Datastore ISO File to Client Device" Radio Button
3. and press OK to save the changes.

Note:- I was able to remove the mounted ISO only by directly logging to the ESXi at https://esxi-ip-address/ui

where it asks

"The guest operating system has locked the CD-ROM door and is probably using the CD-ROM, which can prevent the guest from recognizing media changes. If possible, eject the CD-ROM from inside the guest before disconnecting. Disconnect anyway and override the lock?"

You need to select yes to eject the CD-ROM and then remove the ISO file successfully.

GNS3 Docker Error while creating node: Docker has returned an error: Cannot connect to host docker:80

Error while creating node: Docker has returned an error: Cannot connect to host docker:80 ssl:False [No such file or directory]

After adding docker template for Alpine Linux in gns3, you get above mentioned message when you want to use alpine linux in GNS3.

To get rid of this message you have to install Docker by following below link
curl -fsSL https://get.docker.com/ | sh

If you do not have curl installed then instal curl first with below command.apt-get install curl
After installing Docker you need to add your user name in the docker group with the following command. $ sudo usermod -aG docker your_username

Verify if the docker service is started with following command$ service docker status
If docker is not started then start with following command $ sudo service docker start
Logout from GNS3 Virtual Machines and log back. Start gns3 and use alpine linux.
