This manual is intended for anyone who wants to install or use NSX in a VMware vCenter environment. The information in this manual is written for experienced system administrators who are familiar with virtual machine technology and virtual datacenter operations. This manual assumes familiarity with VMware Infrastructure 5.x, including VMware ESX, vCenter Server, and the vSphere Web Client.

vROps – Setting up alerting for vROps Cluster &…

When you set up a new vROps environment 2 things that you are going to want to monitor are (1) the health of the vROps nodes themselves and (2) the collection status from the vCenters that you are collecting data from. These are the steps you’ll want to perform once you’ve got your outbound notifications sorted out. In this environment we are using the Standard Email Plugin (SMTP).

If you are running vRops and NSX, one of the mangement packs that is a must to install is the NSX management pack – On a side note remember to link Log Insight to vRops, that way when you install the NSX management pack in vRops, it will also install the NSX content pack in Log Insight and setup the alerts in the NSX content pack and forward them to vRops.

If you ever tried to do any file operation via the management interface of an ESXi host, like uploading an ISO file or running a backup using Network Mode, you may know the management interface is not running at the full speed of the underlying network interface, and the bandwidth you end up using is only a percentage of the total available. This limit is designed to preserve the availability of the management interface, but still there are situations where this limit is a problem, and you would like to increase it. Hopefully, there’s a solution.

Horizon 7.0 Part 5–SSL Certificates

Horizon 7.0 Part 5–SSL Certificates–TheVirtualHorizon

Horizon 7.0 Part 5–SSL Certificates

SSL certificates are an important part of all Horizon environments . They’re used to secure communications from client to server as well as between the various servers in the environment. Improperly configured or maintained certificate authorities can bring an environment to it’s knees – if a connection server cannot verify the authenticity of a certificate – such as an expired revocation list from an offline root CA, communications between servers will break down. This also impacts client connectivity – by default, the Horizon client will not connect to Connection Servers, Security Servers, or Access Points unless users change the SSL settings
