It has been a little while since I have last posted reason being that everything has been running smoothly until today!
Okay so on vCenter I was performing some VM changes in the settings and I got the following error
To resolve this if you have a windows based vCenter it is much simpler just restart the VMware vCenter service on the box and off you go but if you have a vCenter appliance you are going to need to perform a full reboot
Anyway I hope this helps
For more information please go to the following KB
The update process for Zerto from version 4.0U4 to 4.5U4
And you are done! Easy!
If anything goes wrong get on the phone to Zerto there support is fantastic! I have just finished my update last night and it went a bit crazy and they soon called me back and helped straight away.
Run the following code below to create new port groups on all hosts within a cluster found this pretty useful
Get-Cluster “Test-Cluster" | Get-VMHost | Get-VirtualSwitch -Name “vSwitch0” | New-VirtualPortGroup -Name “New-Test-Network-DMZ” -VLanId 110
VMware is now recommending that you use Open-VM-Tools instead of the traditional VMware tool Linux agent. Below is the script to perform the installation from your terminal session
# Perform Debian VM update apt-get update -y && apt-get upgrade -y # Install Open VM Tools apt-get install -y open-vm-tools
If you have seen my older post about changing the Windows hostname I have also had the challenge of changing the VM names within the inventory to match. Here is the rather simple solution to do this
set-vm Old-VM-NAME=01 -name 'New-VM-Name=01' -confirm:$false set-vm Old-VM-NAME=02 -name 'New-VM-Name=02' -confirm:$false set-vm Old-VM-NAME=03 -name 'New-VM-Name=03' -confirm:$false
