VMware NSX for vSphere 6.4.0 Release Notes
VMware NSX for vSphere 6.4.0 Release Notes
VMware Social Media Advocacy
I’ve had this happen to me on the 5.8.4 appliance and thought I would share. Normally The Hyperic appliance is deployed as a vApp consisting of two VMs, and when the vApp is started/restarted, they each start in the proper order. This process might be needed if the database doesn’t exit/shutdown normally and thus doesn’t start up right the next time. And if the database isn’t running, the Hyperic UI server won’t start.
Login to the server with ssh, use the hqamdin password with the root username that you specified during the vRealize Hyperic Appliance deployment, unless you have changed them of course…
First start the Postgresql database: hypericdb. These services have to be started under the hqadmin account.
'/opt/vmware/vpostgres/9.1/bin/pg_ctl status -D /opt/vmware/vpostgres/9.1/data/'
# su -c '/opt/vmware/vpostgres/9.1/bin/pg_ctl start -D /opt/vmware/vpostgres/9.1/data/' - hqadmin
Once the database is running, start the hyperic server: hyperic. This service has to be started under the hyperic account.
You can follow if the Hyperic server starts properly from the bootstrap log on the xx01-m-hyperic server.
Hope this helps anyone out there who still uses vRealize Hyperic
VMware Cloud on AWS with NSX: Connecting SDDCs Across Different AWS Regions
I prior shared this post on the LinkedIN publishing platform and my personal blog at HumairAhmed.com. In my prior blog post, I discussed how with VMware Cloud on AWS (VMC on AWS) customers get the best of both worlds for their move to a Software Defined Data Center (SDDC) – the leading compute, storage, and The post VMware Cloud on AWS with NSX: Connecting SDDCs Across Different AWS Regions appeared first on Network Virtualization .
VMware’s Cloud Nativeness | filipv.net on WordPress.com
At first glance it feels like VMware’s efforts related to cloud native applications are meant to cater to the traditional admins, people who are mainly running virtual machines today but want, or need, to support other types of workloads as well. People who secretly don’t “get” this new container hotness* and really want to manage…Read More
VMware Cloud on AWS Cost Assessment
This video, we will show to run a VMware Cloud on AWS Cost Assessment to help you identify the costs of migrating applications / business services / clusters and VMs from private cloud to VMware Cloud on AWS. vRealize Business for Cloud comes with an easy to use assessment tool, which can quickly give you the number of hosts you will need, your estimated cost and a simple cost comparison to your current private cloud environment.
Cloud Provider Faction uses vCloud Director to empower Enterprises
In this video, learn how Faction, a leading Cloud Provider, used VMware technologies including vCloud Director to enable and empower Enterprises moving to cloud.
VMware’s vCloud Director (vCD) and vCloud Availability (vCAV) only come with TLS v1.1 and 1.2 enabled out of the box. This process will show you how to enable TLS v1. If more information is needed, please visit VMware’s Documentation on vCloud Director 8.20, or the following KB2145796. This work should be completed after hours as you would inevitably be moving VCD proxy service from one cell to another, and this could cause a brief outage for customers. This process will require taking the cell offline, so do each cell one at a time starting with a cell not running the inventory service
# ./cell-management-tool -u administrator cell --quiesce true
# ./cell-management-tool -u administrator cell --status
