Updating vmware tools without reboot country songs dating my daughter
Everytime I reboot my ESXi 5 host it returns to an old configuration (connected to old datastores and listing old virtual machines).
I have found a few oddities which are probably part/root of the problem but i'm not sure how to go about fixing: ~ # df -h Filesystem Size Used Available Use% Mounted on NFS 1.4T 568.4G 828.7G 41% /vmfs/volumes/isos NFS 119.2G 60.1G 59.1G 50% /vmfs/volumes/sql NFS 2.7T 976.2G 1.8T 35% /vmfs/volumes/vms ~ # cd /bootbank/ /tmp # ls scratch vmware-root The if i view syslog there are 3 messages: Ignoring volume (/vmfs/volumes/x) (does not meet size requirement - 261853184 bytes) followed by: Scanning 0 VMFS filesystems for scratch storage, using /tmp/scratch as scratch Whilst rebooting over IPMI i noticed Shift-R for recovery mode.
Currently, I run a 3-NUC Cluster that runs about 33 virtual machines including 2 v Centers, virtual ESXi Hosts, v SAN and NSX.
The following chart is a comparison based on the NUCs Pass Mark score: NUCs have a very low power consumption.
If you are familiar with previous NUCs, you might notice that the 2.5" holder is no longer the lid itself.
ESXi 6.0 No customization is required to install the latest ESXi 6.0 versions on 7th Gen NUCs.
While the problem has already been identified and there was a new driver in Build 5146846 (Released 2017-03-14), the installer still fails.
# wget esxcli software vib remove -n net-e1000 # esxcli software vib install -v /tmp/VMware_bootbank_net-e1000e_220.127.116.11-2vmw.600.3.57.5050593-f Download: VMware_bootbank_net-e1000e_18.104.22.168-2vmw.600.3.57.5050593The force (-f) option is required because the working e1000e driver is a "downgrade".
The upside is very scratch-sensitive, so be careful with it. Remove 4 screws on the bottom and remove the lid and the 2.5" drive holder.
The assembly takes about 5 Minutes to open the NUC, install memory, NVMe SSD module and a 2.5" drive.
Currently, only ESXi 6.0 U3, which is bundled with the net-e1000e driver version 2.2.1-2vmw.600.3.57.5050593, works out of the box.
Storage (AHCI and NVMe) The AHCI driver for previous NUC versions was always available, but unsupported controllers were not correctly mapped to the driver.
