vSAN Encryption and Core Dumps

This post was originally published on this site

During the last three days, I’ve spent on vSAN training (VMware vSAN: Deploy and Manage [V6.7]) which was very useful even for me who is observing vSAN since the beginning (2013) and did a lot of self-study and home lab practicing during the last year or so. The trainer (Jiri Viktorin) is very knowledgable and ready to answer any question. To be honest, I personally prefer class training over

Performance of vRealize Operations REST APIs

This post was originally published on this site

About three years ago I posted a blog discussing the performance of the vRealize Operations REST APIs. That blog post still gets referenced, but I thought it was time to update since there have been overall platform performance improvements with each release and the original blog doesn’t address a specific question that I keep getting

Powershell: Migrate Standard Portgroups

This post was originally published on this site

Hi, just wanted to share this piece of code with you. This short script creates a mirror of virtual portgroups from one vSphere ESXi host to another. I only takes the name and vlan id into account, so all policies, nics and other settings are not migrated at this time, but it is easy to … Continue reading Powershell: Migrate Standard Portgroups

VMware vRA 8 Configuration Workflow

This post was originally published on this site

Cloud Account – Cloud accounts allow you to bring your public cloud and on-prem data centers under management. This is like Endpoint (In vRA 7.x)

Cloud Zone – Cloud zones associate compute resources with projects and account/regions to form the basis of deployable virtual machines. In addition, they enable you to define capabilities that Cloud Assembly matches with blueprint constraints to define where and how resources are configured for deployments. This is like Fabric Group (In vRA 7.x)

Project – Projects link users and cloud zones. Think of projects as groups that control who can use what cloud resources. This is like Business Group (In vRA 7.x)

Flavor Mapping – Cloud vendors use flavors, or instance types, to express standard deployment sizings such as small (1 CPU,2 GB RAM) or large (2 CPU, 8 GB RAM) for compute resources. When you build a blueprint, you pick a flavor that fits your needs. This is like Component Profile (In vRA 7.x)

Image Mapping – Cloud vendors use images to configure a VM based on OS settings, such as an ubuntu-16 configuration. When you build a blueprint, you pick an image that fits your needs. Map an image name to a value for each account/region. You can also add constraints and configuration scripts to further control resource placement. This is also like Component Profile (In vRA 7.x)

Blueprint – Blueprints are specifications for the resources that you deploy.
