Migrating SRM (Array) Servers to another Cluster

This post was originally published on this site

Team,

 

I quite totally new with SRM Array Based and want to be very sure on my plan. So I would like to ask your assistance.

 

We have Non-SRM and SRM servers. We are migrating them to other clusters (same site and vCenter).

 

What we did:

1. We presented the source cluster datastores to the destination clusters.

2. Presented all vLANS and modified host profiles.

 

They are now using same distributed switches, no problem with the network and storage anymore.

 

Now, we have migrated all non-SRM servers, by changing their hosts. All migrated VMs are working fine.

 

My problem is the SRM Servers, I can do the same as non-SRM server but my worry is the SRM side. What steps do i need to make the modifications so the replicated wont break and still working.

 

Please help and will appreciate any inputs from the community.

Today we are pleased to announce the official launch of docs.vmware.com. This portal unifies the product documentation for all VMware products, versions, and languages into a single platform so you can find the information that you are looking for more quickly and easily. VMware products offer a wide range of business solutions from desktop virtualization to supporting your hybrid cloud. We’ve heard your feedback that finding the right information can be difficult.

Our site design features search on every page. We built a new search experience powered by Elasticsearch with an intuitive taxonomy to help you more easily locate relevant content. You can search the entire site or a particular book.

Filter to Find What You Need

Hi ,

 

We recently acquired vCenter and vSphere 6 Essentials through our server with HP.

We are running the latest version of vSphere and vCenter which is 6.5 our vCenter shows the licensed feature as Virtual Storage Appliance.

Can Virtual Storage Appliance be installed with 6.x though the latest version of the VSA is 5.5 and is about to be EOL

 

 

Any thoughts? Thank you

Vm network unidentified network

This post was originally published on this site

Hi,

I have a hp proliant server ml110 gen9 on which I installed the ESXI 6.0 gyprevisor and raised windows server 2012 on it. The problem lies in the fact that the server is sometimes unresponsive on the network. In the network configuration of the server appears an unidentified network inscription. Only after rebooting the virtual server or restarting the network adapter, everything starts working. In what there can be a problem, help please.

Don’t Login on Untrusted Computers

This post was originally published on this site

A password is only as secure as the computer or network it is used on. As such, never log in to a sensitive account from a public computer, such as computers in a cyber cafe, hotel lobby or conference hall. Bad guys target public computers such as these and infect them on purpose. The moment you type your password on an infected computer, these cyber criminals can harvest your passwords. If you have no choice but to use a public computer, change your password at the next available opportunity you have access to a trusted computer.

Broadcom BCM5719 Ethernet only negotiates at 100mb Full Duplex

This post was originally published on this site

I am running VMware ESXi 6 on a DL380 G9 server.

 

It is connected to a gigabit switch set to autonegotiate, but the server only negitiates at 100mb Full Duplex.

I have checked the cables and switch and both are fine. We have even tried another switch

I cannot force the card to 1000mb full duplex because VMware gives the following error

“Error: Forcing 1000Mbps or faster may not be supported on this network device, please use auto-negotiation instead”

 

No matter what we try we cannot get the speed increased. Can anyone suggest how we might fix this
