Set up your target and communications infrastructure
Before you install the iSCSI initiator on any of your servers or workstations, you must have something to which the initiator will connect. This can be one of the enterprise class arrays, such as those available from LeftHand, EqualLogic, Dell, or EMC or, if you’re on a tighter budget and want to build your own array, a target running iSCSI target software, such as StarWind.
I recommend that, whenever possible, you use either a physically separate infrastructure or separate IP network/VLAN for your iSCSI traffic. By doing so, you simplify troubleshooting and configuration later on.
In our previous posts, we saw the option to deploy the VCH using CLI utility, vSphere client etc. In this post, we see an option to automate the VCH deployment using vRealize Automation ( vRA)
The current automated world requires the seamless and fastest deployment of its infrastructure. VMware vSphere Integrated Containers gives developers an essential tool for streamlining the process of building and running containerized applications in production. The deployment of VCH is done through various methods as we see in our previous posts. But in this post, we are going to see how to automate the VCH deployment and the first VCH in few mouse clicks. By using the service catalog in vRealize Automation to provision Virtual Container Hosts on-demand as a ticketless offer, you can make your developers self-sufficient.
The vRealize Automation 7.4 and later versions support provisioning and management of Virtual Container Hosts(VCH) for running vSphere Integrated Containers (VIC…
Virtual Container Host Deployment using the "vic-machine" Utility - VMware Integrated Containers In our previous posts, we saw the steps to deploy VIC appliance and deploying the VCH from vSphere client. In this post, we will see the steps to deploy the VCH using the "vic-machine" CLI Utility
Once we deploy the vSphere Integrated Containers (VIC) appliance, access the VIC appliance IP from the browser and we land on the below page. From this page, we can download the vSphere Integrated Containers Engine bundle from the appliance and unpack it on the workstation/laptop/ jump host where we connect to our vSphere environment.
Unpack the downloaded bundle
The bundle included the following contents and utilities
The VIC bundle includes the vic-machine CLI utility. We use "vic-machine" to deploy and manage virtual container hosts (VCHs) at the command line.
Procedure: Open a terminal on the system on which we d…
This post is related to the issue what we faced today when we replaced the SSL certificates in our setup. When I launched the web-client and access the update manager tab, I get the message "interface
com.vmware.vim.binding.integrity.VcIntegrity is not visible from class
I started off by
restarting the VMWare vSphere Update Manager Service for the affected vCSA: 1. Log into vCenter
using the email@example.com account. 2. Home - System
Configuration - Services - Restart
This did not resolve
my issue... And we tried restarting all the services by SSH/Console into the
affected server and run the following commands: service-control
--start --all Still no luck. Make sure the certs are applied and it gets reflected in the config file. ( verify if the thumbprint matches) root@homelab71 [
