Creality Print on ESXi VM

Creality Print needs OpenGL 4.1 in order to show the model view.  By default, although it slices and uploads to printer fine, you cannot see, thus modify, the model.

In VM settings, enable 3D Support, and set 3D memory to 1GB (1GB is Vmware’s recommendation for Win7 and later):

For it to work over a Remote Desktop Connection, within the VM, you need to disable WDDM.

In Local Computer Policy, go to Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Remote Desktop Services > Remote Desktop Session Host > Remote Session Environment and disable Use WDDM graphics display driver for Remote Desktop Connections:

Restart VM.


Creality Print in all its VM/RDP glory:


VMware: Failed to leave the domain . The user or group named ‘\esx^admins’ does not exist.

Sometimes when ESXi loses its trust relationship with Active Directory, you cannot log in with your AD account, and attempts to remove the ESXi server from AD result in an error:

Failed to leave the domain <Domain Name>. The user or group named ‘<AD>\esx^admins’ does not exist.


Create a local group called esx^admins:

/usr/lib/vmware/busybox/bin/busybox addgroup DOMAIN\\esx^admins

(Change DOMAIN to be Netbios name of AD, and not the double \)

Repeat for any other AD based group names you have assigned permission to within the ESXi host.

Remove from the domain, either via ESXi or vCenter (preferred)

Remove the temporary local group(s):

/usr/lib/vmware/busybox/bin/busybox delgroup DOMAIN\\esx^admins

Add the ESXi Host back into the domain via ESXi or vCenter (preferred).

If it fails to rejoin after a long delay, delete the Computer object for the ESXi Host from AD.
