How to use VMware vSAN ReadyNode Configurator

17 décembre 2021 à 16:10

VMware vSAN is a hyperconverged solution that creates a shared datastore from locally attached disks within each server of the cluster. As such, you do not need to buy dedicated SAN hardware. The whole cluster IS the shared storage, as each server within the cluster participates with its local disks.

Disaster recovery strategies for vCenter Server appliance VM

27 novembre 2021 à 05:33

In this post, we'll list some of the most common disaster recovery strategies for small environments for VMware vCenter Server Appliance (VCSA). With small environments, admins usually run only one single sign-on domain, so there is no case where the vCenter Server is linked to another vCenter Server. While it is simpler for any backup solution, it is also a single point of failure. That's why it is important to have some kind of disaster recovery for VCSA.

Compress-Vhdx: Compress multiple VHDX files using the PowerShell cmdlet Optimize-VHD

17 novembre 2021 à 16:05

My PowerShell function Compress-Vhdx allows you to compress multiple VHDX files with a single command to reclaim space from a folder (and its nested subfolders). The function uses the Optimize-VHD PowerShell cmdlet, which comes with the Hyper-V role. You no longer need to provide the full syntax separately for each VHD. When the operation is complete, you get a nice summary of the amount of space saved for each separate VHDX.

How to migrate VCSA to a new host without VMotion

5 novembre 2021 à 14:36

This is a post for VMware admins who manage a small environment based on vSphere Essentials that does not have a VMotion license. In some situations, you need to migrate VMware VCSA (vCenter Server Appliance) to another host within the environment so that you can carry out maintenance tasks or upgrade the underlying host to the latest ESXi version.

Snapshot management in vSphere

2 novembre 2021 à 16:27

As many who use vCenter to host their virtual servers know, snapshots are a critical function, one that is frequently undertaken before upgrades or changes to a system. However, taking snapshots can be a tedious process, particularly if you are taking multiple snapshots. Fortunately, VMware has created the PowerCLI PowerShell module, which can make this process much more efficient. I used the VMware.VimAutomation.Core PowerShell module, which was downloaded from the PowerShell Gallery website. Let's review how to perform common tasks in the web view, and see how to do the same task from the CLI.

New free VMware tool: Virtual Machine Desired State Configuration (VMDSC)

22 octobre 2021 à 18:23

The new free VMware tool, Virtual Machine Desired State Configuration (VMDSC), allows you to optimize the performance of your virtual infrastructure without impacting business-critical VMs. You can modify the configuration of VMs that need vCPU or memory changes without rebooting them. The changes are stored in the VM's VMX configuration file and then used for reconfiguration at the next reboot. The next reboot is usually scheduled a long time in advance during application upgrades or cumulative patch installs.

VMware vSAN Automatic Rebalance vs. Proactive Rebalance

15 octobre 2021 à 15:26

VMware vSAN's Automatic Rebalance capacity is part of vSphere 7 U2. What is the difference between vSAN Automatic Rebalance and vSAN Proactive Rebalance? Storage usage higher than 80% triggers reactive rebalancing. A difference of 30% between vSAN capacity disks will trigger vSAN's Proactive Rebalancing function.

Install Windows 11 in a virtual machine

28 septembre 2021 à 15:14

The new hardware requirements for Windows 11 apply not only to physical devices but to virtual machines as well. The advantage of virtual machines here is that PCs without a physical TPM can install a virtual one instead. Other requirements, such as Secure Boot, can also be met in a VM
