The last days we got two new All-Flash Storage Systems. These systems can present LUNs in a Metro-Cluster fashion. So I got the challenge to configure the Storage Plugin UltraPath from Huawei. In the manual from Huawei is explained how to configure the settings with esxcli on the ESXi-Host. That’s fine, but not enough 😉 We want to configure this with PowerCli to easily manage more than one Host.
The last days I had an issue with the vapi endpoint service. This was caused when I recreated the VMCA Solution Certificates with the Certificate Manager. BTW: VMware Support advised me to do so :/ The complete Message was:
"Failed to connect to d30d9c10-e830-4a2e-b2dd-12de77fc11a3\com.vmware.cis.cls.vapi vAPI provider."
Look what other services are affected by this issue and how to fix it.
We design highly redundant Datacenters, Clusters, Storage Systems and even Networks, but in the end we still have some unplaned outages :/ This week we had a defect Memory DIMM that caused a PSOD on one ESXi Host. HA restarted the VMs fine, but we want to know quickly which VMs restarted. Check out a PowerCLI one liner to find the restarted VMs!
