VMware의 경우, 로컬(VMware ESXi Host)에서는 adureport를 취합할 수 없음(제약사항)

원격 서버(Client role)에서 수행해야 함

 

ESXi 호스트에서 확인:

1. putty로 esxihost에 접근하여 ssadu 명령 동작 여부 및 SHA key 확인 (별도 기록 필요)

-----------------------------------------------------

[root@esxihost:]esxcli ssacli cmd -q "controller all show status"

 

[root@esxihost:] openssl x509 -in /etc/vmware/ssl/rui.crt -fingerprint -sha1 -noout
SHA1 Fingerprint=2B:AE:78:C1:17:6C:59:BB:F7:AD:00:E4:C5:14:E9:DD:C1:35:9B:7C

-----------------------------------------------------

 

Client Host에서 수행:
Linux:

1. Install esxcli 7.0.x (Check esxi version, esxcli need to match with its version)
ESXCLI
https://code.vmware.com/web/tool/7.0/esxcli

vCenter 서버를 리부팅 후, 재접속을 시도하니, 떠억!!! 오류가 출력 되었다.

 

Symptom:

------------------------------------------------------
503 Service Unavailable (Failed to connect to endpoint: [N7Vmacore4Http16LocalServiceSpecE:0x0000564fdd410120] _serverNamespace = /vsphere-client action = Allow _port = 9090)

------------------------------------------------------

 

 

기대하지 않은 상황에서 경험한 이벤트라서 당황했지만, 검색해보니 많은 사용자가 경험하는 증상 같더라는 ...

 

대체적으로는 15 ~ 20분 정도 기다리면 접속이 재개된다는 것이다.

관련 서비스가 지연 시작되어 나타나는 현상인 듯 ... 해당 증상은 자동으로 해소될 것이라는 KB도 확인된다 ...

 

인내심이 필요 해지는 순간 ...

 

한 참 후 다시 접속해보니, 오홋! 서비스가 초기화 중이란다 ...

------------------------------------------------------

The vSphere Client web server is initializing

------------------------------------------------------

 

혹, 그래도 안된다면, VCSA 콘솔 쉘에 접속해서, 아래 명령을 수행하고 또 인고의 시간을 기다려 보자 ...


# service-control --stop vsphere-client
# service-control --start vsphere-client

# service-control --status --all

Array 정보 확인 (VMware)

1. Copy HP ESXi Utilities Offline Bundle to datastore

HP ESXi Utilities Offline Bundle for VMware vSphere 5.5

2.2(30 Mar 2015)

http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softlib2/software1/pubsw-windows/p2128318412/v97967/hp-HPUtil-esxi5.5-bundle-2.2-16.zip

 

2. Connect VMware Console via ssh

 

3. Install HP ESXi Utilities Offline Bundle

Example:

~# cd /vmfs/volumes/datastoreX/"Bundle Depot path"/

~# esxcli software vib install -d /vmfs/volumes/datastoreX/"Bundle Depot path"/"hp-HPUtil-esxi5.5-bundle-2.2-16.zip"

~# esxcli software vib install -d /vmfs/volumes/55de5576-c5e4aa60-e6db-9cb65490b9ec/Depot/hp-HPUtil-esxi5.5-bundle-2.2-16.zip

 

4. Check array status

Example:

~# esxcli hpssacli cmd -q "controller all show config detail"


** ESXi Host에서 ADU report 취합 시도 >> 실패


~# esxcli hpssacli cmd -q "controller all diag”

Error: An ADU report cannot be generated in VMware ESXi using the diag command due to limitations of the operating system. You must use the HPSSADUESXI utility executed from a remote machine in order to obtain the report.


ADU Report 취합 

Linux(RHEL 6.x)

5. Install VMware vSphere CLI and hpssaducli on RHEL

HP Smart Storage Administrator Diagnostic Utility (HP SSADU) CLI for Linux 64-bit (American, International)

VMware에서 출시한, 중-소규모(?) 클라우드 구축용 어플라이언스 솔루션

 

서버 하드웨어와 독립적인 SW 베이스 솔루션 (SDDC: software-defined data center)를 강조하며, 쉬운 도입 및 자원 배포/관리를 특징으로 한다.

 

VMware 사의 소개 페이지로 개요 정보는 이미 충분히 공개되어 있는 듯하다.

https://www.vmware.com/kr/products/evorail


VMware eVO:RAIL Product Overview
http://bcove.me/flmno0gb

 

VMware eVO:RAIL E2E Experience
http://bcove.me/p6fq0vg9 

 

특히 튜토리얼 부분에서는 사용자의 편의성을 강조한 부분이 인상 깊다.

 

2 Socket 2U 서버 4대가 하나의 그룹(HCIA:Hyper-Converged Infrastructure Appliance)로 구성되며, 총 4개의 세트까지 확장이 가능하다.

서버 하드웨어 4개 노드 및 연결해줄 네트워크 스위치 그리고 VMware ESXi가 핵심인듯~

 

HP에서는 CS200(ConvergedSystem 200) 솔루션을 EVO RAIL과 접목시키고 있다.

 

최대로 확장한 솔루션은 결코 작은 규모가 아닐 수 있겠다.

이에 간편해 보이는 인터페이스는 많은 장점을 줄 것으로 기대해 볼 수 있겠다.

 

기존에 많은 하드웨어 벤더들이 자사 하드웨어에 VMware를 패키징하여 어플라이언스로 공급하고 있었기에, 보다 빠르게 시장에 침투할 수 있지 않을까 기대해 본다. (서로 아규가 없다면 ~)
