I LIKE TO MOVE IT


Martytoof posted:

Ugh is there any way to programatically rename all the files associated with a VM when you rename the VM itself?

You're supposed to be able to do a storage vmotion to rename the associated files but for that to work you have to move it to a DIFFERENT datastore. If you "vmotion" it to the same datastore it doesn't do any renaming.

I have like 30 VMs I want to change the name scheme of and i know it doesn't actually MATTER what the files are named behind the scenes but I'm anal like that so it looks like I'll be spending the next day removing, renaming, and importing by hand.

Rename them, then SvMotion them to a temp datastore and back. If you can. Or script it, as said. Renaming the files and the lines in the vmx file isn't terrible.

You read it right. As of vSphere 6.0 Update 1, the vSphere Update Manager (VUM) now has itís interface fully-integrated in the vSphere Web Client! What does this mean for you? Now you truly have no excuse not to ditch the c# client and move directly into the Web Client!

Yeah the lack of VUM isn't why people aren't using the web client. Also VUM still requires Windows. How is that still possible after all this time?

How does licensing for vRealize Operations licensing work, specifically for the Performance Monitoring and Analytics side?

A coworker (mistakenly) bought a 25 seat license for vRealize Operations Advanced (we have something like 500 VMs) thinking it would cover everything (???). It works, but we'd like to get into licensing compliance.

We also have various VM's that we really don't need much monitoring on (Std level monitoring/analytics would work fine) and critical applications that we're trying to virtualize that we absolutely need application level monitoring on.

Can you mix and match VM licensing within a single vRealize Operations instance?

You can be compliant with a 25 pack in an environment with 500 VMs, just create a user for vROps to use that only has permission to view the 25 VMs you want to monitor ( KB 1036195). Otherwise, yes, you can mix in additional vROps 25 packs to get up to 500.

It's actually happened.. I switched to the VCSA Web GUI full time.

I've been using it so long that I had an opportunity to sit down at my oft-neglected Windows laptop and boot the C# GUI and I was like "ugh what the hell is this, where is everything"

I'm not making any statements about its performance or overhead, but as far as functionality I think I can honestly say I'm happy with having the WebUI.

Just ditch the loving flash and I'll be content.

Is there ever any hope of a vCenter-less "new VM from template" functionality addition? At least I think you need a vCenter server to be able to deploy from templates. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Anyone have any recommendations for a cost effective, low profile, quad port, PCI-e NIC for use with ESXi 5.1, 5.5 and 6.0? Any reason not to go with Intel I350-T4's? They're ~$140 new through Amazon. They would be used in my current IBM x3650 of varying types with HP Procurve switches if that has any impact. I plan to transfer these cards to whatever servers I end up replacing the IBM's with - probably HP servers.

e: There's this HP card (HP NC364T) that's supported by ESXi 6.0U1: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...h?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I would think so, but I'm quite sure what to look for with server NICs. There's a quite a large price difference between some NICs and I'm not sure if it's additional processing power/cache or features or what. Hoping someone can chime in with a "yeah, that's fine. there's no reason to spend more for features you won't use."

You mostly pay for QA. Ask me about the two weeks I lost to Emulex's dog poo poo handling of SFP+ twinax connections.

Some NICs do iSCSI in hardware, etc. You really just need the basic hardware offload features that have been around for a decade unless you're doing crazy kernel-bypass poo poo like high-frequency traders.

I'll give the HP NIC's a shot since they're waaaaaaaay cheaper. The cost of 6 of them is less than one Intel I350 from CDW. I'll test them out on my test hosts first.

I assume you mean vSphere's Operations Manager product?

If so then yes it's getting a lot better and there are a number of additional extensions you can bring in to monitor things like your storage and some of your applications. VSOM can then provide you some recommendations that actually make sense instead of just the health badge and a number thats not 100% clear.

It also has merged dashboards into one unified dashboard so you can get all the data from one place. If you're good with Operations manager then you'll get a lot out of it.

Ran in to a really weird bug on the upgrade to vCenter 6.0u0 where the web gui wouldn't load any inventory, but the thick client worked normally and all the alarms were good so clearly the backend still saw everything. Support didn't know what was up and u1 came out two days later and installing that cleared it up.

6.0 web gui really does work better than 5.5. but its still not great. I'd prefer to stack on the thick client if they weren't locking me out of things. On the plus side, it looks like all the update manager functionality has finally been ported to the web client so I'll just pretend the thick client doesn't exist and suffer in silence.

This happens if either the web client or VCenter service aren't properly registered through the lookup service. The thick client connects directly VCenter and does not use the lookup service.

Weird, I looked through the logs and didn't see any complaints coming out of lookup. The problem was slightly intermittent, the worked immediately after the upgrade to 6.0 and then it rebooted for OS and stayed broken until U1. I'll keep on eye on that in case it comes back again.

DO YOU HEAR THAT? THAT'S THE SOUND OF ME PATTING MYSELF ON THE BACK.

I got a bit of a puzzler. I think I got caught with an outlier situation that I may not be able to improve upon, but I'm not 100% sure.

Our main switch backbone is a pair of Nexus 5672UP units. 3 out of our 4 hosts are connected via 1gb links to FEXs whereas our 4th host and our new reference architecture is connected via 10gb links directly to the Nexus.

The setup is as follows.

2x10gb links for Management (active/standby), Vmotion(standy/active), and VM Traffic (active/active)

Basically, we make sure that Management and Vmotion traffic aren't competing on the same adapter unless there's a failover and let VM traffic use both adapters normally.

2x10gb links for iSCSI traffic.

In both pairs, one adapter is plugged into Nexus A and one to Nexus B.

The storage has 4x10gb links which gives us 8 paths. Paths are set to round robin and 1 I/O operation per path based on SAN manufacturer recommendations. Paths failover has been validated by pulling network links. Same with the Vmotion and Management failovers.

Here's where things get odd. Nexus A puked on Friday night and eventually rebooted. I say eventually because things started going south before the reboot happened.

Now, I have a physical database server connected to these same two switches so I was able to compare what I saw on the VMware side compared to just plain Windows 2012 R2 MPIO.

For the physical windows cluster, I saw MPIO start failing out paths around 11:57 pm. However, windows didn't log a link loss to the switch on that adapter until 12:02pm So, the switch must have hung or otherwise gone south 5 minutes before it rebooted. The cluster handled this well. Paths died, latency increased a bit, but the OS didn't lose access to volumes and things recovered once the switch was back online. It was exactly what you would expect.

The picture on the VMWare side isn't as clear. I see some events logged that say "Lost access to volume <GUID> due to connectivity issues. Recovery attempt is in progress and outcome will be reported shortly". However, I also see other events just saying that path is degraded. So, I don't know for sure that volume access was lost for the host with the 10gb adapters Does it log that "Lost access to volume" message whenever a path fails but may not have truly lost full access to the volume?. I did have some VMs fail ping checks, but that could have been on the network side of things and not IO related. I don't really see any evidence in those VM event logs that they had any severe IO stalls.

Management access to the server died for the 5 minute period between 11:57 and 12:02. Since failover is on link failure, that seems to make sense. If the switch was on but not processing traffic during that period, VMWare likely didn't have a reason to failover the link. Beacon mode wouldn't have helped necessarily either since with only two adapters, it wouldn't have a tiebreaker. As soon as the link went down when the switch rebooted on its own, management failed over to the other interface and was up again. I then saw other failure events about 6 minutes later when I think the link was failing back.

So, I think for the most part the configuration I have is valid and best practices and I really didn't have an real impact from the switch crash and reboot, I just got some unexpected results based on a strange failure mode on the switch. That's a whole other issue, I look forward with wrangling cisco over that one.

So, I guess rant done, I don't know that there's a real question in there, just kinda working over the incident in my head. I guess the only real question is if multipathing worked properly in this instance and if any volumes were really impacted other than having a few stalls over path failovers.

Failover to standby paths or controller failover can cause the "lost access to volume" message since there is a period of time where the device is unavailable while VMware either waits for recovery on the primary path or waits for the storage controller to complete failover and begin serving data again. As long as it reconnects within the within the SCSI timeout value of the guests it's generally going to be fine, though you may see some latency spikes on guests during the interval. What storage are you using?

On the network side, the appeal of LACP over simple active/standby adapters in the port group is that LACP can detect that sort of ghost switch problem where physical link is still active, so link state detection does not cause a failover, but the switch is not actually processing or passing data.

bull3964
Nov 18, 2000

DO YOU HEAR THAT? THAT'S THE SOUND OF ME PATTING MYSELF ON THE BACK.

Storage was a combination of pure and netapp. Yeah, the loss of access to volume is what threw me, but I couldn't find any evidence in the guests that storage was interrupted in any way.

In all, the incident was less severe than I initially thought (other than a Cisco Nexus switch hanging and rebooting for no reason) and all the failovers and multipath worked as intended within the best of their abilities. The loss of management access briefly was annoying and set alarms off like crazy, but it really didn't cause any issues for the most part. Though, I don't know if this would have been the case if ALL of the hosts would have lost management access, I assume that would have caused HA to go into a bit of freakout mode. Still though, the VMs should have been ok.

LACP isn't an option for me unfortunately. That requires VDS and Enterprise Plus and we are only on Enterprise.

Heh, it would actually be cheaper to get a few 10g FEXs and let the switch handle LACP internally since the FEXs are all cross connected with the Nexus switches. We didn't see any evidence of network connectivity being interrupted on the hosts connected via the 1g FEXs and they only lost half their paths to storage (due to the controllers losing half their connections) rather than 75% of the paths going down with the 10g connected host (due to both half of the controller connections being down and 1 of the 2 host connections being down).

Threw me too. It was up for 340ish days without incident (they were installed at the end of October 2014). I haven't dug into them too deeply yet since I was trying to get my head around the behavior of the VMWare host and storage. Only A switch rebooted, B switch is still chugging.

'show system reset-reason' shows unknown and 'show cores' comes up with nothing at all so no core was created.

It's been the month of odd hardware failures. Our 6 month old Netapp SAN had a controller die a few weeks ago. Dead dead. Like, was reset by watchdog and wouldn't power on dead. Only the service processor was functional. Took the tech 3 1/2 hours to replace since most of the instructions for replacing the controller assume it's up in some shape or form. So, he was on the phone with Netapp pulling info from the Autosupport checkins. Meanwhile, the instructions they gave the tech and the instructions they had posted online for the controller replacement were totally different. The guy on the phone was telling the guy on site to run commands with switches that were for other commands. It was a clusterfuck. My first experience with Netapp support was not...glowing or confidence inspiring.

We have a vSwitch for iSCSI with two 10gb adapters in it. One vmk has the first adapter active and the 2nd adapter unused and the other vmk has the 2nd adapter active and the 1st adapter unused. Pretty much bog standard config.

Maybe I missed a thread on this, but does anyone have any recommendations or experience with setting up/running a private cloud with Azure Stack/Azure Pack? I found a few technet articles and blogposts online about setting this up, but was curious if there are any shops out there that have deployed this, particularly a hosted VM infrastructure using the Azure pack frontend. Essentially I am looking at migrating away from Citrix Xenserver to hyper-v on my hosting backend, and trying to leverage a good frontend portal that will allow customer self-service and automated billing, particularly with VM hosting in mind.

Until then, I get to enjoy a million schannel errors and intermittent vCenter failures as IIS and Python duke it out for control of TCP 8006.
