VMware: Install Broadcom 5720 network adapter

March 20th, 2013 2 comments

Today I installed a new Dell PowerEdgde R620 host with vSphere 5.0 update 1. The Intel Ethernet I350 adapter was recognized and installed correct but the Broadcom 5720 wasn’t. I downloaded the latest Broadcom driver CD from VMware and uploaded the extracted content to my local datastore.
To install the drivers I used the following command:

esxcli software vib install -v /vmfs/volumes/pathtodatastore/NIC/net-tg3-3.120h.v50.2-1OEM.500.0.0.472560.x86_64.vib

^ full path to the file must be specified

After reboot the Broadcom adapter was installed successfully:

VMware: Console-setup, Configure or Troubleshoot the ESX Service Console

December 2nd, 2010 No comments

Oke.. I didn’t know this feature, last week a colleague consultant shows me a little menu to (re-)configure the ESX service console. With the command “console-setup” you can add or delete some vSwitches, create a new SC and view current configurations.

If you never worked with ESX CLI then will this a nice feature to setup/troubleshoot the SC.

image

The option “Console-setup” is available since ESX 4.0 update 2

Menu structure:

When you console-setup as root from the service console, you are presented with this menu:

1. Show Current Service Consoles

2. Show Network Adapters

3. Show vSwitch/vDS Information

4. Delete Service Console

4.1 Select the interface to delete, defaults to vswif0

5. Configure Service Console

5.1 vswif ID, default to vswif0

5.2 Name of service console port group: default to “Service Console”

5.3 vSwitch for service console, default to vSwitch0

5.4 IP Address:

5.5 Subnet mask:

5.6 Default gateway:

5.7 VLAN ID: default to 0

5.8 vmnic to use for the service console

5.9 Save Changes

5.10 Return to Menu

6. Exit

Use:

  • Options 1,2 and 3 for display current information
  • Option 4 to remove an existing service console interface (vswif). You may also do this, if you want to recreate it.
  • Option 5 to change the configuration of an existing vswif interface, or for creating a new one.

VMware: Cleanup bootloader after upgrading from ESX 3.x to vSphere 4.0

November 5th, 2009 2 comments

After upgrading from VMware ESX 3.x to ESX 4.0 you can cleanup the bootloader from the older ESX 3.5 installation. You can do this from the console of by connection the host with ssh, give the command “cleanup-esx3”

image 

Little note: You can run the cleanup-esx command as long as everything works for you in 4. If you use the -f flag, the software prompts you to confirm that you want to disable the ability to roll back to the ESX 3.x.x.

Thanks xchello from Dutch VMug for the tip!

VMware: Software – System Management Version: 8.2.0 (30 Mar 2009)

April 17th, 2009 1 comment

Download: hpmgmt-8.2.0-vmware3x.tgz

Download URL: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=US&swItem=MTX-f7e5291b6fe84bdd95f996a7b1

Release notes:

Important:

  • The HP Insight Manager Agents version 8.2.0 supports VMware ESX 3.0.2 and higher versions only.
  • The upgrade of HP Insight Manager Agents is not supported. Please uninstall the older version before installing the HP Insight Manager Agents version 8.2.0.
  • The Emulex and Qlogic libraries will need to be downloaded from Qlogic and Emulex websites directly. For detailed download and installation instructions for these libraries, please refer to the “README” file, which is included in the downloadable HP Insight Manager package.

Notes:

  • For the HP Insight Manager Agents to function properly with ESX 3.x, the firewall ports for the ‘hpim’ service (2381) and the ‘snmpd’ service need to be enabled. Please see the README file for additional details regarding how to enable these firewall ports during the Insight Manager Agents installation.
  • Configuring multiple trap destinations during silent installation of this package is currently not supported. If you want to configure multiple trap destinations, edit the “snmpd.conf” file to add the trap destinations and restart both the ‘snmpd’ and ‘hpasm’ services.
  • If the internal health LED on a server is amber, the server might shutdown or reboot as soon as the HP Insight Manager Agents are installed. This feature is called Automatic Server Recovery, and is enabled to ensure that the server can be recovered even though there is a major hardware problem. Please get the hardware error fixed if the color of the internal health LED on your server is amber.
  • The hp-OpenIPMI package is installed on ESX 3.0 and above. This package is for servers with iLO 2 and an IPMI Base Management Controller.
  • During the installation and configuration of HP Insight Manager Agents, the install script may prompt whether to keep the existing snmpd.conf file. The default to this prompt is ‘n’, which will then continue to gather the required SNMP configurations. Answer ‘y’ to this question only if you have a snmpd.conf file already configured with read/write strings and dlmod support.

Supported Devices and Features:
Supported Operating Systems
VMware ESX Server 3.x
