Serial port locked after Win10 Pro VM/Service restart

This post was originally published on this site

ESXi 6.7 on HP ProLiant DL380 G9 and Win10 Pro VM.

 

Physical serial port assigned to VM and works fine under control of a service. It is assigned to device /dev/char/serial/uart0.

Runs for days without a glitch.

 

If I restart the VM or the service to update a piece of code or a configuration, the serial port is not available anymore, no matter how many times I do resets.

 

To recover, I need to:

– inhibit the serial port in the VM’s Device Manager

– restart the service

– activate the serial port in the VM’s Device Manager

– restart the service again.

– then it works … until I need to restart the service another time …

 

Anyone has an idea what the cause may be … and, most importantly, what’s the solution?

 

Thanks

6.5 U2 – Install on HP DL360 G10

This post was originally published on this site

I am looking to do a fresh install of 6.5 U2 on a HP DL360 G10 Server.  I have downloaded the customized iso for this server and have created a bootable USB using Rufus.  I used MBR partition scheme for UEFI and FAT32.  These are the settings I have used in the past on other servers.

However, while going through the install, it keeps hanging at 75%.  Once it gets to 75% in errors out with “errno2 No Such File or Directory”.  This occurs with the customized iso for HP as well as the standard iso for 6.5.  I have tried different USB’s and have disabled the secure boot option in the BIOS. 

 

Any help or suggestions is appreciated.

New ESXI Host, no management connectivity

This post was originally published on this site

I have been trying to figure this out but so far, not able to. this is brand new, never connected to vcenter or anything yet.

 

Set management network to use all 4 on board 1GB NIC’s, ( I have a fiber network as well as a SANS 10GB also)

 

I set the ip, subnet, GW and DNS, the NICS note they are connected. also there is activity on the NICs on the back of the server.

 

I have been looking at the switch ( consulted my network admin) and I can not find any activity on the ports the network cables on the switch.

 

I have contacted the Server manufacturer and they sent a tech with a new motherboard and that didnt do anything.

 

Ideas?

NVidia GPU on ESXi 6.5 with V.M. not EFI Bios

This post was originally published on this site

Hello,

We need to install a NVidia P2000 (Q0V77A) on a HP ML 360 Gen10 with VMWare esxi 6.5 and pass it in passthrough to a Win2016 Virtual Machine already working.

I found fragmentary information on the internet (no precise and complete official VMWare article) explaining how to configure the video card to be viewed and managed directly by V.M. and the part that worried me is that someone says that the V.M. must be configured with the Bios in EFI mode while the V.M. which I have already operative from the customer is definitely installed in normal Bios mode, being also the mode recommended by VMWare during installation.

The problem is that if i change the Bios in EFI mode, the V.M. not boot anymore.

If the Bios in EFI is an essential prerequisite for the correct operation of the video card, this would mean having to reinstall the virtual machine, the terminal server, the ERP software. Can you give me more precise information?

Thanks a lot.

Is there a recommended value on QFullSampleSize,QFullThreshold on vSAN??

Configuration

 ・ESXi 6.5 U2

 ・HPE 3PAR StoreServ is connected with iSCSI

 ・vSAN is also connected

 

Question

・We are doing troubleshooting on performance and we are trying to change the value of QFullSampleSize

HPE Custom Image for ESXi 6.7 + Proliant Microserver Gen10 No IPMI capabilities

This post was originally published on this site

Hi there,

I’m really a newbie, so I may be asking something stupid, but I hope you can help me.

I downloaded and installed the HPE Custom Image for ESXi 6.7 GA Install CD on a HPE Proliant Microserver Gen 10 and everything went smoothly.

The thing now is about monitoring.

On the web client I go to Host > Monitor and the system says: This system has no IPMI capabilities, you may need to install a driver to enable sensor data to be retrieved.

Since here https://www.hpe.com/it/it/servers/hpe-esxi.html you can read (in Italian) “it supports Gen 9 and newer servers”

My understanding was that using this image I would not need to install anything else to monitor stuff like the RAID controller status.

 

Can you help me?

 

The final goal is to get to know ESXi, in order to make a step forward and offer our customers a better service but I am moving my first steps in this V-world and everything is really interesting but overwhelming.

 

Thanks in advance.

Hostd, vpxa and the vSphere API/SDK – Confusion on where the APIs actually live

This post was originally published on this site

Hi All,

I’m taking the VMware vSphere Deploy, Manage course and was confused about this:

  • In one slide, the instructor showed that vCenter Server communicated with the ESXi host using vSphere APi/SDK (The VMware Host Client also communicated using this)
  • In another slide, the instructor showed that the vCenter Server communicated with a vCenter agent living on the ESXi host (vpxa). This then communicated with another process called hostd, which then executed commands at the hypervisor…

With the second bullet point in mind, where does the vSphere API/SDK fit in? Is hostd the item that houses the vSphere API? Does vCenter communicate with vpxa, which then communicates with hostd using the vSphere API/SDK?

 

Clarification would be much appreciated.
