Updates to vSphere vSphere 4.1 5

Posted by jl on March 13 2013th

Hello everyone

In this and subsequent articles I will describe the steps we have taken to upgrade to vSphere vSphere 4.1 5 in a production environment.

The virtual infrastructure that we set is composed of a cluster 3 4.1 ESX servers and virtualized vCenter Server database having an external SQL server 2005. Besides the three ESX servers, two are migrated from previous versions and you have a new installation of version 4

The steps that we have divided the upgrade process were as follows:

Upgrade licenses

Pre requirements

updating vCenter

Reload vSphere client

Update update manager

Reload esx host

Reload vmtools

Virtual hardware upgrade

Reload datastores

We will develop each of the parties Megacrack read »

Cleanup ESX servers 4.1

Posted by jl on February 8 2013th

Hello everyone

In this article we will see how free space on servers ESX 4.1 or seeing an actual example above has happened to us.

In all servers ESX they are in the 4.1 version and are not new installations, but come from upgrades from previous version, such as 3.5 or 4, we may find that when we go to apply patches us a bug that the task could not be completed , which can be of this style "Did not succeed for remediation hostesx.local, esxupdate operation 1.30 15 version Error"

One of the causes of this this error may be we have no enough space on the / boot partition as in older versions of vmware hosts ESX only had 100MB. To check this we open an ssh session against the host ESX and we run the command df -h we can see the size of the partitions team

[[Email protected] vmware] # df -h

Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on

/ Dev / sde5 4.9G 2.8G 1.8G 61% /

/ Dev / sde2 2.0G 377M 1.5G 21% / var / log

/ Dev / sdc1 99M 98M 1M 79% / boot

/ Dev / sdc6 2.0G 176M 1.7G 10% / esx3-installation / var / log

Here we can see that we only have a free 1MB in the / boot partition so we have not enough space to install new patches. To see that is what is occupying the space we go to the directory / boot and run the command ls-la

[[Email protected] boot] # ls -la

We see similar files to initrd-xxxx-xxx.img that are old images and can be removed with rm initrd-xxxx-xxx.img command and free up some space.

We checked with the command df -h

Already it freed some space and we can proceed to install the patches.

Problem deleted roaming profiles on terminal servers virtualized server

Posted by jl on December 27 2011th

Hello everyone

Today we will talk about a problem that arose us deleting profiles to virtualize Terminal Server servers. The environment we had was an NLB physical terminal server cluster where domain users are connected to access an application and once closed the session profile session erased. Of the farm are virtualized several with no problem, but after a few days we realize that it is increasing the disk space occupied and are not automatically deleting the roaming profiles of users when they disconnect from the remote session.

The cause of roaming profiles are not deleted is that by doing the installation of vmtools option is installed Shared Folders and it makes it can not delete the file hgfs.dat inthe route found C: \ Documents and Settings \ usuario.000 \ Local Settings \ Application Data \ VMware

This can be solved by uninstalling the option of SharedFolders of vmtools or go on the server to the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SYSTEM \ CurrentControlSet \ Control \ NetworkProvider \ Order \ y delete the value vmhgfs

PerfilMovil

Once done, provided that users have logged into the server can delete all profiles, reboot the server and the next time users log are automatically delete the roaming profile.

One thing to keep in mind is that each time we update the version of the vmtools, and especially if we do it in an automated manner, for example using the update manager of virtual center, we have to repeat this process.

Until next time

Greetings and happy holidays
