VMware Cluster as create and enable HA from VirtualCenter.

Posted by Xaus Xavier Nadal 1st on December 2012

VMware ClusterTo create a VMware cluster we have an essential form of a VirtualCenter (vCenter) and therefore of physical servers ESX 2 installed.

What we want to install a VirtualCenter server and put under a vmware cluster?

For various reasons including: vmotion (You can move virtual machines from one host hot ESX to another), Storage VMotion (Included by default in the 5.1 version of the standard license) you can move the virtual machine datastore hot (awesome) ... if a LUN is no space you can move the machine to another LUN without losing service, Fault Tolerance, etc.. With all this we make it easier for example spend all virtual servers from one physical server to another and so can upgrade ESX smoothly.

We from here I highly recommend it.

You can follow the following items according to your preferences, to install VirtualCenter if you have it already installed.

When you have installed the vCenter and you may access it through a vSphere client, only you should follow these steps that we show below:

Create new Datacenter.

Create new cluster.

Add Hosts.

Install vCenter Server Essentials Plus mode 5.1 Appliance

Posted by Xaus Xavier Nadal 21st on November 2012

Installation vCenter Server Essentials Plus mode 5.1 Appliance It is very simple.

We assume that we have already licensed the product and in this case will be one of the Essentials Plus packs which they are designed for small businesses that are starting to migrate physical servers to virtual and do not want to invest heavily in virtualization products, but want to reduce costs on physical servers.

In large corporations we can also use safely since for example for a small delegation with few users work seamlessly us and we can save money that will be very useful to devote to a good disk array.

If you want to see the differences between the different versions of the product you can see the following:

http://www.vmware.com/products/datacenter-virtualization/vsphere/compare-kits.html

If you want to see the official prices between different product versions you can consult the following link:

http://www.vmware.com/products/datacenter-virtualization/vsphere/pricing.html

This time for the item we have chosen the product version Appliance Virtual Center mode which we discussed earlier in this blog, the only difference in this product is installed when the license instead of being a product license is the new standard license acquired Essentials product. As simple as this.

We got installing vCenter Essentials Appliance mode instead of Windows mode because we saved the cost of the Windows license and can use to improve the cabin again ...

Essentials Plus It meets all our needs vSphere High Availability, vSphere vMotion, vSphere Storage Appliance, Among others, and we will not integrate into the cluster hosts over 3 2 or more sockets per host so we will adjust this license perfect for our environment and not have to toil away more money than necessary. It is cheaper even if we had already installed a vCenter. The only downside is that require a new installation of vCenter Essentials Plus because it is not compatible with vCenter and could not include the machines within the corporate infrastructure of Virtual Center.

The steps to provide a vCenter Server Essentials Plus mode 5.1 Appliance They are as follows:

1.- Install vCenter Server Appliance 5.1 in mode.

http://www.megacrack.es/2012/11/14/instalar-vcenter-server-5-1-en-modo-appliance/

 

2.- Configure vCenter Server Appliance 5.1 in mode.

3.- Install a license on a Virtual Center.

And that's it.

How to install a license on a Virtual Center

Posted by Xaus Xavier Nadal 14th on November 2012

In this article we show how to install VMware licenses in a Virtual Center environment.

What we will do is tap a previous article where we explained as install y set up vCenter Server Appliance Mode 5.1 and thus complete the installation of the license necessary for the system has greater functionality than 60 days is the term they give us free until we buy a product license vCenter and can use it for life.

We recall that once bought a license VMware is not necessary to be renewing the license every year unless of course we want to update the product or as VMware calls it (make an update version) does not mean putting on patches but increase the versioning for example when moving from one ESX 3.5 4 to, or a 4 5.1 to, etc ... I guess you know what I mean.

This article aims to explain the steps to be followed to introduce a license to a Virtual Center environment.

I hope you find it useful, and although simple, many of you sure helps you see with screen shots.

Please write to any comments if you have any questions or want to contribute knowledge to other blog readers.

Greetings and enjoy the reading.
