ارتقای ورژن VMware ESXi از نسخه 6 به 6.5

ارتقای ورژن VMware ESXi از نسخه 6 به 6.5

در این پست با ارتقای ورژن VMware ESXi از نسخه 6 به 6.5 در خدمت شما عزیزان هستیم.

در حین ارتقای ورژن ESXi از نسخه 6 به 6.5، در هنگام ارتقاء نسخه ESXi بر روی چند تیغه HP Proliant با یک تصویر سفارشی HP به یک خطای ناسازگاری زدیم. خطا اظهار داشت:

ارتقا شامل مجموعه زیر از VIB های متضاد است:

 

During a recent 6.0 to 6.5 upgrade, we ran into an incompatibility error while upgrading the ESXi version on multiple HP Proliant Blades with an HPe Custom Image. The error stated:

The upgrade contains the following set of conflicting VIBs:

Mellanox_bootbank_net-mlx4-en_2.0.0.0-1OEM.550.0.0.472560

Remove the conflicting VIBs or use Image Builder to create a custom upgrade ISO image that contains the newer versions of the conflicting VIBs, and try to upgrade again.

No need to panic. We will check to see if the affected driver(s) are in use. If they are not, we can safely remove them. However, if they are in use, do not remove them as it could disconnect network interfaces from your host. Let’s go through the process using esxcli.

SSH to ESXi host in question.

Run the software vib list command to show the VIB package where the Mellanox driver resides.

esxcli software vib list | grep Mell

 

  • In our case, the command returned net-mst VIB

Next, run the network nic list command to view the drivers utilized on your network interfaces.

esxcli network nic list

  • Confirmed NICs are not using Mellanox drivers

Finally, run the software vib remove command to remove the affected VIB (net-mst).

esxcli software vib remove –n net-mst

Success! To complete the removal, reboot your ESXi host and proceed with the upgrade.

پچ کردن درایورهای HP در هاست ESXi با استفاده از VMware Update Manager

پچ کردن درایورهای HP در هاست ESXi با استفاده از VMware Update Manager

Today I wanted to run through the process used to patch HP drivers on an ESXi host; specifically through Update Manager. In a vSphere 6.5 troubleshooting post, we discussed a PSOD issue stemming from a specific HP iLO driver. That being the case, it seemed fitting to go through the patch process for the affected iLO driver in this post. Despite this being a very specific patch, the general patch procedure can be applied to other driver updates as well.

Issue Background – HPE Advisory regarding Proliant servers deployed using the hpe-ilo driver version 65.10.0.1-24. VMware ESXi 6.5 host fails with a Purple Screen Diagnostic, indicating that CPU XX / World XXXXXX tried to re-acquire a lock. Resolved by upgrading the hpe-ilo driver to version 650.10.0.2 or later.

Driver Check

In our instance, we will check the ESXi host(s) for the affected HP driver.

To begin, enable and initiate an SSH session to the host. Once logged into the host, run the esxcli software vib list command searching for strings matching HP.

esxcli software vib list | grep hp

VIB List HP

Here we can see this host is running the affected driver iLO driver (650.10.0.1-24). In our next step, we will move to vSphere Update Manager to add and download pertinent patches from the HPE repository.

Download Patches from Repository

The easiest way to obtain HPE patches is by downloading them from their online repository.

To do so, navigate to Update Manager from the vCenter Server Web Client.

VUM

Select the vCenter Server under Navigator. Click the Manage tab, Download Settings under the Settings tab. Click the Edit button to add the download source.

VUM Download Settings

Select Add under Direct connection to Internet. In the Add Download Sourcewindow, enter the download source URL. In our case, the HPE repository is located at http://vibsdepot.hpe.com/index.xml. Click OK when finished.

VIBS Depot HPE

NOTE – If you don’t have an internet connection, you can manually import the patches from a local .zip by clicking Import Patches. Manual downloads can be obtained from http://vibsdepot.hpe.com/hpe/.

VUM Import Patches

Select the newly added Source and click Download Now to download the patches.

VUM Download Patches

Progress can be monitored in the Recent Tasks pane.

Patch Recent Tasks

Create Baseline

Next, we will add the pertinent patches to a Baseline. Navigate to the Host Baselines tab and select New Baseline.

New Baseline

The New Baseline wizard will begin. Enter the Name and select the Baseline Type. In this instance, we will choose Host Patch. Host Extension could also be utilized.

Baseline Host Patch

Next, select the type of patch baseline to use.

As per VMware, dynamic patch baselines contain a set of patches, which updates automatically according to patch availability and the criteria that you specify. Fixed baselines contain only patches that you select, regardless of new patch downloads.

We will select Fixed since we are only upgrading this driver once.

Baseline Patch Options

Select the patch to include in the baseline. By checking the HPE software repository, we could determine the 2.6.2-2 release includes the required hp-ilo driver (650.10.0.2). If you don’t want to go through that trouble, the HPE Advisory also states the Release Date.

Baseline Patches

Review the baseline selections and press Finish when complete.

Baseline Patch Review

We have downloaded the Patches and the Baseline is created. Our next step will be to attach the baseline to the cluster.

Attach Patch Baseline

To begin, select Go to compliance view.

Compliance View

With your cluster or host selected, choose Attach Baseline.

Attach Baseline

Select the newly created Patch Baseline.

HPE Patch

To verify the compliance of your Patch Baseline, select Scan for Updates.

Scan for Patch Updates

When complete, the summary will show the applicable missing patches.

Missing Patches

Remediate

For the last step in our process, we will set our Remediation Options and begin the Remediation process. Click the Remediate button to start.

Remediate Patches

Select the pertinent Baseline to remediate.

Remediate HP

Choose the Target (hosts) for remediation.

Remediate HP Target

Select the specific Patches to apply. In our case, we only have one.

Remediate Hewlett Packard

The Advanced Options section will allow us to schedule a specific time to run the remediation and/or choose to ignore unsupported items. We will leave both unchecked.

Remediate HP Advanced Options

Next, specify Maintenance Mode Options for the remediation. Set options for changing power state, disabling removable media, and retrying maintenance mode here.

Remediate Options

Lastly, specify the Cluster Options for the remediation.  For hosts in a cluster, the remediation process will run sequentially by default. If you would like to run the remediation in parallel, denote that here.Remediate HP Cluster

Review the settings and click Finish to start the remediation process.

Remediate HP Review

Monitor progress from the Recent Tasks pane. The remediation process will:

  • Put the host in maintenance mode; migrating vms to other cluster hosts.
  • Apply the pertinent patch.
  • Restart the host.
  • Re-connect the host to vCenter.
  • Exit host maintenance mode.
  • Remediate next host if applicable.

Recent Tasks

After a successful remediation, the baseline will show compliant.

Compliant

NOTE – If you would like to ensure the patch has applied, SSH to your host and re-run the esxcli software vib list command. We now see that hpe-ilo is at 6.50.10.2-2.

VIB List CMD

If you don’t have Update Manager or prefer a different approach, patches can also be easily applied via ESXCLI. Check out this post for that process.

HP drivers aside, hopefully, this gave you a good framework for the patch process as a whole.

بروزرسانی Firmware و درایورهای سرور HP با استفاده از SPP و SUM

بروزرسانی Firmware و درایورهای سرور HP با استفاده از SPP و SUM

مدیران چند گزینه مختلف برای به روز رسانی اجزای زیربنای HPE دارند. یک راه محبوب برای به روز رسانی سیستم عامل HPE، درایورها و Smart Components از Package Service برای Proliant (SPP) و ابزار HP SUM استفاده می کند.

SPP و SUM چیست؟

 

 

SPP – Service Pack for Proliant مجموعه ای از سیستم عامل، درایور و بخش های هوشمند است که از طریق ابزار SUM به محیط شما اعمال می شود. SPP به عنوان ISO تعبیه شده است.

SUM – HP Smart Update Manager ابزاری است برای تحویل بهروزرسانی به سرورهای HP ProLiant، سرورهای یکپارچگی، زیرساخت BladeSystem و سرورهای HP Moonshot. SUM، به طور پیش فرض، به عنوان GUI باز می شود. همچنین می تواند در CLI، CLI، یا حالت RPM لینوکس اجرا شود.

SUM و SPP چگونه کار می کنند؟ SUM گره ها را در زیرساخت خود باز می کند و سیستم عامل و رانندگان فعلی خود را ثبت می کند. سپس سیستم عامل / درایور موجود در مقابل SPP را بررسی می کند و توصیه های به روز رسانی را برای مدیران درخواست می کند.

چگونه برای به روز رسانی محفظه HPE، سرور ها و قطعات پارچه
حالا که ما کنترل داریم بیایید در مورد نحوه قرار دادن به روز رسانی به شاسی HPE، سرورها و اجزای پارچه نگاه کنیم. اگر قبلا انجام نداده اید SPP را دانلود کنید. SPP باید با HP SUM باشد.

بعد از اینکه فایل های مربوطه را دریافت کردید، SPP ISO را به صورت محلی نصب کنید. تعیین محل و اجرای فایل batch launch_hpsum را انتخاب کنید.

 

SPP – Service Pack for Proliant is a collection of firmware, drivers and Smart Components that are deployed to your environment via the SUM tool. SPP is packaged as an ISO.

SUM – HP Smart Update Manager is the tool utilized to deploy updates to HP ProLiant Servers, Integrity Servers, BladeSystem infrastructure, and HP Moonshot Servers. SUM, by default, opens as a GUI. It can also be run in interactive CLI, CLI, or Linux RPM mode.

How does SUM and SPP work? SUM discovers nodes in your infrastructure and records their current firmware and drivers. It then checks the existing firmware/drivers against the SPP and provides update recommendations for admins to apply.

How to Update HPE Enclosures, Servers, and Fabric Components

Now that we have that under control. Let’s look at how to deploy updates to your HPE chassis, servers, and fabric components. If you haven’t done so already, download the SPP. The SPP should come with HP SUM.

After you have the pertinent downloads, mount the SPP iso locally. Locate and run the launch_hpsum batch file.

As the file executes, HP SUM will open in your browser.

 

 

 

 

 

 

First, we check to see if the Baseline was added automatically. If not, we will manually add the Baseline. The Baseline is the update level our nodes will be compared against. To view or add Baselines, click the Baseline Library under HP Smart Update Manager drop-down arrow.

 

 

 

 

 

If the baseline was automatically added, you will see it recorded.

 

 

 

 

 

If not, select Add Baseline.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As we are adding the Baseline from the SPP ISO, select Browse HP Sum server path for the Location Type. Under Location DetailsBrowse to the packagesfolder of your mounted ISO. Older SPP versions held the baseline in hp/swpackages folder.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Once added, the Baseline will begin to populate.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After the Baseline has been inventoried, we will add our infrastructure nodes. These nodes are devices such as Onboard Administrator, Server Blades, Virtual Connects, Brocades, etc. Under the Smart Update Manager drop-down, select Nodes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

From the nodes page, click Add Node.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Enter the pertinent information for the node; including IP/DNS, Node Type, Baseline, and Credentials. In this instance, we are adding the Onboard Administrator of a BladeSystem enclosure. Checking the Automatically Add Associated Nodes allows us to gather all additional nodes in the enclosure. Click Add when finished.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

With the node added, select Inventory. Here current firmware/drivers are discovered and updates will be recommended.

 

 

 

 

 

As the nodes are inventoried, shapes will indicate different action items.

Green Square – Node is at its assigned baseline

Yellow Triangle – Update required/Ready for deployment

Red Circle – Could not inventory/Incorrect username or password.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Next, we’ll look at a node where an update is required. Click Review and deploy updates.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here we can see the number of recommended updates, update types, criticality, installed version, available version, and if a reboot is required. In this instance, there is an optional update to apply. Ensure the update is selected and click Deploy to kick off the update.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Depending on the node type, additional installation options are provided. For example, updates requiring a reboot allow for reboot options to be specified.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Deploy away and bring your infrastructure up-to-date!

ECS

EMC

Traditional SAN and NAS storage platforms, while critical for enterprise applications, were never designed for modern cloud applications and the demand of cloud-scale. The unabated growth in unstructured content is driving the need for a simpler storage architecture that can efficiently manage billions and trillions of files and accelerate the devolopment of cloud, mobile and big data applications while reduce escalating overhead and storage costs.

Immediate Response

In order to fulfill these requirements, IT organizations and service providers have begun to evaluate and utilize low cost, commodity and open-source infrastructures. These commodity components and standard open technologies reduce storage costs but the individual components provide lower performance and reliability – and also require the operational expertise to ensure serviceability of the infrastructure.

EMC® Elastic Cloud Storage (ECS™) provides a complete software-defined object storage platform designed for today’s scale-out cloud storage requirements. ECS offers all the cost advantages of commodity infrastructure with the enterprise-grade reliability and serviceability of and integrated EMC-supported solution. ECS benefits include:

  • Cloud-scale Economics: 65% TCO savings versus public cloud services
  • Simplicity & Scale: Single global namespace, unlimited apps, users and files
  • Multi-site Efficiency: Low storage overhead across geo-distributed locations
  • Faster App Development: API accessible storage accelerates cloud apps & analytics
  • Turnkey Cloud: Multi-tenancy, self-service access and metering capabilities

Global Content Repository

Unprecedented data growth both in structured and unstructured content are driving the need to store large files (such as images and videos) in high cost, silo’d storage systems. Traditional infrastructure often isolates data making it difficult and costly to exchange and manage content. This type of environment does not scale efficiently and economically forcing customers to seek out a comprehensive solution that delivers the benefits of both public and private clouds. ECS Appliance enables any organization to consolidate multiple storage systems and content archives into a single, globally accessible and efficient content repository that can host many applications.

Anywhere Access to Content

ECS’s multi-site; active-active architecture, single global namespace and universal accessibility (Object and HDFS) enables anywhere access to content from any application or device. Buckets of data span sites allowing read/write to any location with strong consistency semantics to simplify application development and facilitate anywhere access to data. ECS very intelligently supports geo-caching by identifying mult-site access patterns and caching data at the location where it’s being accessed most frequently.

Data Lake Foundation

Traditional storage can make unlocking business intelligence and analytics challenging. Data is often layered across complex systems making accessibility and management difficult and costly. Organization are forced to pull data from operational systems and then load them to a dedicated cluster for analysis. Accuracy and timeliness are key components to delivering efficient analytics and ECS enables customers to deliver insightful business intelligence on large, distributed content stores without the need for Extract, Load & Transform (ETL) operations. ECS provides a centralized Data Lake Foundation to access and manage any organizations content through multiple Hadoop distributions.

Big Data Analytics

ECS HDFS makes it simple to bring analytics to all the object data stored in ECS. ECS treats HDFS as an access protocol on top of the object storage engine. A drop-in client deployed on the data nodes of an existing Hadoop environment enables analytics queries on the object data in ECS without any ETL process. The time it takes to extract value from data analysis can be the difference between gaining and losing market share. With ECS HDFS, you can expand analytics capabilities to geo-distributed content and archives to glean new business insight, identify new business opportunites, and improve time to results.

State -of-the-Art, Patented Technology

ECS’s patented technology provides highly dense storage for Hadoop enabling customers to deliver insightful business intelligence on large, distributed content stores. ECS can efficiently store PBs of data in a low cost, state-of-art commodity-based storage system. ECS addresses the challenges associated with tradtional HDFS enabling enterprise features like erasure coding and geo-replication with reduced storage overhead.

Platform For Modern Applications

Today’s modern applications demand a different architecture. Managing both cost and accessibility as storage environments grow and become more comlex is one of the biggest challenges organizations face today. Traditional storage was never architected for new Web, mobile, and cloud applications. Developers are finding it easier to go to public cloud alternatives putting data at risk and increasing management costs. ECS Appliance provides a cloud-scale storage architecture that is specifically designed to support modern applications with unparalleled availability, protection, simplicity and scale.

Multi-protocol, API-accessible Storage

ECS is a massively scalable, software-defined object storage platform that enables any organization to store, access, and manipulate unstructured data as objects. ECS is compatible with industry-standard object APIs such as Amazon S3 API with support for byte range updates and atomic appends giving developer’s choice and more functionality than public cloud alternatives.

Simple Multi-Tenancy

ECS delivers a flat software architecture ideal for multi-tenant environments. Configuring, provisioning, namespace creation and managing a multi-tenant platform have never been easier. key metrics and reporting are provided for capacity, object count, objects created, objects deleted and inbound/outbound bandwidth. A quota feature enables administrators to set soft quotas and quota locking for buckets and tenants. In addition, administrators can view activities pertaining to the creation, update, and deletion of buckets and changes to ownership. These activities are all visible via the ECS GUI and through REST API. A metering API is also included for object services to provide granular data for various tenants.

MEETING THE INFORMATION-SHARING CHALLENGE

Performance bottlenecks, security issues, and the high cost of data protection and management associated with deploying file servers using general-purpose operating systems become non-issues with the EMC® VNX® Series Gateway. Each VNX Series Gateway product—the VG2 or VG8—is a dedicated network server optimized for file access and advanced functionality in a scalable, easy-to-use package. The world’s number-one trusted storage platform found in best-in-class EMC Symmetrix®, the EMC VNX series, and EMC CLARiiON® back-end array technologies, combined with the VNX series impressive I/O system architecture, deliver industry-leading availability, scalability, performance, and ease of management to your business.

The VNX series follows a modular unified approach with separate block storage processors of varying capacities and performance, scalable X-Blades, and single or dual Control Stations across the series. This flexibility enables customers to scale block storage pool processors and file system processors independently to meet their unique business needs. Utilizing this architecture, the VNX Series Gateway delivers high-performance file system access.

VNX Series Gateway platforms extend the value of existing EMC storage array technologies, delivering a comprehensive, consolidated storage solution that adds IP storage (NAS and iSCSI) in a centrally managed information storage system, enabling you to dynamically grow, share, and cost-effectively manage file systems with multi-protocol file access.Take advantage of simultaneous support for NFS (including NFSv4.1 with pNFS support) and CIFS protocols by letting UNIX and Microsoft Windows clients share files using the VNX Operating Environment for File sophisticated file-locking mechanisms.

The high-end features offered with the VNX Series Gateway platform enable entry-level data center consolidation resulting in lower total cost of ownership (TCO) of your server and storage assets—while enabling you to grow your IP storage environment into the hundreds of terabytes from a single point of management. You can also improve performance over standard NAS by enabling pNFS for your NFS requirements; or simply add VNX Multi-Path File System (MPFS) to your environment for your NFS and CIFS requirements without application modification.

UNEQUALED AVAILABILITY FEATURES

The VNX Series Gateway platforms provide flexible availability configurations with the option of non-stop file access achieved through transparent, dynamic failover to a hot standby X-Blade. Depending on your operational needs, you can deploy in several operating modes including primary/standby or primary/primary for the VG2, or advanced N+1 or N+M failover for the VG8 (where N is the number of active X-Blades and M is the number of X-Blades in the standby pool).Primary/standby is designed for environments that cannot tolerate any system downtime due to a hardware failure. In this mode, one of the X-Blades operates in standby mode while the primary one manages all of the data movement between the network and storage.

For the VG8, one or more X-Blades can be configured as standby (N+M advanced failover model) for the active blades, providing a pool of blades for the highest levels of availability. The standby blade(s) seamlessly take over the operation of any failing blade, delivering equal performance to the primary system after a failover, thus allowing the system to fully scale without concern for managing potential resource constraints in the event of a failover.In the event of an X-Blade failover, VNX Operating Environment for File uses a metadata logging facility to recover. The advanced failover capabilities allow the hot spare to take over the full workload, running at the same performance and service levels as before the failure.

For information protection, VNX Series Gateway systems offer EMC SnapSure™ software for creating read-only/read-write snaps of file systems. The snapshot can be used for online backups as well as for quick recovery of deleted files. With the addition of Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Client Services integration, this capability is taken a step further, enabling the end user to leverage the functionality in Windows clients to recover deleted files directly from the Windows Explorer user interface.For an even higher degree of information protection, EMC VNX Replicator asynchronously creates a point-in-time copy of a production file system on either a local or geographically remote VNX series system. Replicator provides multi-site protection, simplifies administration with easy-to-define business policies—including recovery point objectives (RPOs)—and uses standard IP-based networks for maintaining consistent replicas between the two sites.

The dedicated, hardware-based RAID controllers in Symmetrix, VNX series, and/or CLARiiON mean that there is minimal performance degradation during a rebuild. The VNX Series Gateway platform defines enterprise-level high availability delivered with X-Blade failover, hardware RAID protection, non-disruptive component replacement, storage processor battery backup, and advanced volume management.Native LUN replication in the form of EMC MirrorView™/S with VNX series/CLARiiON or SRDF®/S with Symmetrix is also supported for your most critical data requiring zero-data-loss availability in the event of a disaster.

With the addition of Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Client Services integration, this capability is taken a step further, enabling the end user to leverage the functionality in Windows clients to recover deleted files directly from the Windows Explorer user interface.For an even higher degree of information protection, EMC VNX Replicator asynchronously creates a point-in-time copy of a production file system on either a local or geographically remote VNX series system. Replicator provides multi-site protection, simplifies administration with easy-to-define business policies—including recovery point objectives (RPOs)—and uses standard IP-based networks for maintaining consistent replicas between the two sites.

The dedicated, hardware-based RAID controllers in Symmetrix, VNX series, and/or CLARiiON mean that there is minimal performance degradation during a rebuild. The VNX Series Gateway platform defines enterprise-level high availability delivered with X-Blade failover, hardware RAID protection, non-disruptive component replacement, storage processor battery backup, and advanced volume management.Native LUN replication in the form of EMC MirrorView™/S with VNX series/CLARiiON or SRDF®/S with Symmetrix is also supported for your most critical data requiring zero-data-loss availability in the event of a disaster.
