While deploying a fresh image of HPE SimpliVity on a Cisco UCS machine, I came across a problem where the HPE SimpliVity Deployment Manager was not able to recognize the IP address of the machine as OmniStack host.
This article explains the cause and how to fix it.
Update: This article is valid for Lenovo SystemX, Cisco UCS and Dell OmniCube. All non-HPE hardware is requiring an alternate approach to deployment after factory reset.
Have you ever wondered if this is all there is? If the life you are living right now, is the right way? Did you think outside the box and see new opportunities? Maybe lift the barriers and see what other things you can accomplish?
This post is something else from my other posts. It’s not technical, but more related to life in general and how I personally started exploring and basically enriched my life with so much more than just work, money and distractions during the past two years.
Increasing the amount of vCPUs in ESXi is a simple admin task when working with a single or low number of virtual machines. However, performing this on a large number of virtual machines can be an intensive task.
This article is about my use case and how I resolved this with a script, which can be found at the bottom.
At my current assignment, I got busy with the replacement of an existing vCenter Server and migration of all linked objects. This included migrating the vSphere Distributed Switch Port Group objects, settings and permissions.
Exporting the vSphere Distributed Switch configuration is an easy-to-do job using the GUI. However permissions are not included. This post is dedicated to the script I wrote to export and import these permissions.
