Manually migrate virtual machines from the host is not responding.

I have a 3 host cluster.  One of the guests became unresponsive.  Continue to run all the virtual machines connected to the host is not responding and I can't RDP for them.  I am able to SSH to the host does not respond, but not connect via vCenter.

Restart the services will cancel the virtual machines running?  If this isn't the case, then what is the command to restart the services?

What is the best plan to manually migrate those virtual machines for the other two hosts?

SSH, cd to \usr\sbin, then run "services.sh restart" (without the quotes). Which will restart management services, with no impact to your VM. Then you should be able to re - connect with Vcenter.

  • How to find the IP address of the virtual machines from the host Linux

    Hello

    Y at - it a tool that can resolve the IP address of the linux host running VMS, when using NAT and DHCP networking?

    I can find by logging on virtual machines, but I need to retrieve automatically these addresses for the host scripts will not have to be changed manually when IPs change.

    Thank you

    Host: Ubuntu 8.10 64 bit, WS6.5

    Probably the easiest solution is to use static IP addresses... Having said that, what I meant was:

    Each machine (real and virtual) has a unique MAC address. If I create a file (database type) with the name and the MAC address of each virtual machine, then I could use nmap or arp commands to get the IP address. For example, I create a table and put it in a file like this:

    VMName1 00:14:BF:19:45:61

    VMName2 00:0E:5 C: 1 has: 44:1E

    Name of the machine 3. etc.

    Then I could run a combination of arp and/or nmap to find the MAC address of active machines and their respective IP addresses. For example, running:

    sudo nmap - sP 10.0.2.0/24

    This gives on my local network:

    Starting Nmap 4.76 ( http://nmap.org ) at 2009-08-14 18:09 EDT

    Host 10.0.2.1 seems to be upward.

    MAC address: 00:14:BF:19:45:61 (Cisco-Linksys)

    Host 10.0.2.99 appears to be upward.

    MAC address: 00:10:83:BB:08:99 (Hewlett-Packard Company)

    Host 10.0.2.130 appears to be upward.

    MAC address: 00:0E:5 C: 1 has: 44:1E (Motorola BCS)

    Host 10.0.2.134 appears to be upward.

    Nmap done: 256 IPS (4 hosts upward) scanned at 3.71 seconds

    So, now, I know that the machine VMName1 with MAC 00:14:BF:19:45:61 has IP 10.0.2.1 and is it my Linksys router.

    Just a thought.

  • To virtual machines from the host local disk HARD iSCSI - without Vmotion

    If my company has been slowly in VMware since the summer. We started with a license to the Foundation, then added some hosts more and matched with a bolt on the license for VC. Now, we ended up finding this iSCSI on another budget and realized... oh yes... VMotion is not a function of VC... it costs more... once again...

    Is there a way to copy on a host virtual machine machines local hard disks to iSCSI?... must not be direct... just so that if a host dies it does not take down 5-6 VM with it.

    As you have a license for the best average VC to do this is to turn off the host, right-click on it and select Migrate.  As long as the host can see little space on the iSCSI device, you will be able to migrate out, cold.

    Have you tried using using VMware vCenter Converter?  It can take Virtual PC machines and turn them into VMs VMware (.vmdks), you should then be able to manufacture models of VMware virtual machines, import them into the Lab Manager and voila.

  • Dedicated network adapter to the virtual machine and the host computer not let can visit his profile

    OK, here's my question, I know how to give themselves a phyiscal nic to a vmware, but I wanted to take it one step further and do not leave the host send or receive data from this network card, only the virtual machine can use this network/NIC...

    Here's my reasoning, I have to network conections, one is for my internal/field network and the second is a direct connection to the internet (Comcast) I don't want to use to separate the machines have for internet connection, I want to be on the same machine phyiscal and have just the vmware machine talking to comcast... is it possible?  I am running VMware workstation 7, last update.

    Thank you

    Cdrshm

    I assume you are using a Windows host?

    If Yes...

    -first set up networking networking with vmnetcfg.exe

    -assign vmnet0 to the network card for the internal network

    -assign vmnet2 to the network card used for direct access to the internet

    -Right-click on the map network-icon in the systray and access the properties of the network adapter for vmnet2

    -Disable all other protocols and the Protocol of vmware_bridge for this network adapter

    result: a virtual machine that uses vmnet2 can directly access the internet and the host has no IP address for this network adapter - and therefore cannot use it.

    Hello

    Best regards

    BAbak

    can I join g7 to my cluster of the g8

    You can mix into clusters hosts all desired, even Intel and AMD at least that you enable EVC on the cluster (of course, HA or DRS require shared storage compatible/CPU). However, you need not to have even just cluster hosts to migrate virtual machines through vMotion between them.

    migrate web vmware machines without any downtime?

    Don't know what this "web vmware' but yes, because ESXi 5.1, you can use"enhanced vMotion"to live migrate virtual machines without service interruption from one host to another, even without shared storage:

    Migration with vMotion in environments without shared storage

    The usual vMotion requirements apply. Also you can only live migrate virtual machines from the old host to the new hosts because of different generations of CPU (and back as long as you don't have bike powered virtual machines on new hosts).

  • Move the virtual machine from one host to another with shared storage

    Hello

    I have a question on how to move a virtual machine from one ESX 4 host to a host ESXi 5.  These hosts have access to the same shared storage but the ESX 4 host is outside the network and host ESXi 5 is inside the network so vMotion is not an option.  They are in different groups.  I know that there must be an easy way to move this virtual machine, but for the life of me, I can't find it.  I guess I have remove the virtual machine from the external cluster but how to make the virtual machine in the internal cluster?

    Thanks in advance...

    If both host access to the data store even where VM's store, just stop the virtual machine, remove inventory on ESXi 4, go to ESXi 5 vSphere vSphere, browse the data store where the VM is stored, do a right-click on the .vmx file and add to the inventory.

  • PowerCLI Script to migrate virtual machines with the same network Source for the new vCenter Server.

    Hi all

    I checked a few posts on the migration to the new vCenter Server virtual machine. But I'm not very good with Powercli and need some help here.

    We have a new vCenter server where we migrate virtual machines from one source vCenter server. Here are two things that I don't know how to connect together to make sure that bwfore we turn on the virtual machine to the virtual machine is connected to its source network.

    Part 1 - this script works well but do not get any network on the vCenter destination.

    cluster = Get-Cluster "clusterA.

    $inventory = get-Cluster $cluster | Get - VM | Add-Member - MemberType ScriptProperty-name "VMXPath" - value {$this.extensiondata.config.files.vmpathname}-Passthru-Force | Select-Object Name ResourcePool, folder, VMXPath |

    $cluster = get-group 'b '.

    {foreach ($vm to $inventory)

    New-VM - VMFilePath $vm. VMXPath - VMHost $ESXHost - location $vm. Folder - ResourcePool (Get-Cluster $cluster |) Get-ResourcePool $vm. ResourcePool)

    }

    Part 2 - I want to preserve the Portgroup macaddress and the Ip of the virtual computers and connect them to the new vCenter. How can I do this with the script below. Or how can I combine them together?

    $vm_list = get-Cluster-name "clustera | Get - VM test * | Name sort

    $information = {foreach ($vm to $vm_list)

    $network_adapter_information = get-NetworkAdapter - VM $vm

  • migrate virtual machines to new host

    How can I migrate easily all my virtual machines (12) on my current 5.1 ESXi host to new host ESXi 5.1... ?

    [1] put the former host's hard drive in the new host and perform an upgrade from 5.1 ESXi installation disk (the hard drives of the two hosts are the same)?

    [2] put HDD in the new host as a secondary, pop disk in the ESXi 5.1 installation disc to install ESXi 5.1 on the new host's hard drive, but migrate/import virtual machines from the data on the secondary drive (drive old host) store? the host of the former

    [3] pop in the ESXi 5.1 installation disc to install ESXi 5.1 on the new host's hard drive. Once completed, put the hard drive of the host of the former in the new host as a secondary drive and copy/import virtual machines from the data store on the secondary drive (drive old host) using VMware vSphere Client?

    [4] install ESXi 5.1 on the new host, he networked with the old host and use VMware vCenter Converter to import virtual machines from the old host?

    What might work is engaging the larger disk of 'old' to a SATA port once you have installed the disk again, ESXi. Attaching to a port USB probably won't work because VMFS volumes are not supported on USB devices.

  • Shared behavior of the virtual machine on the host system shutdown

    Shared behavior of the virtual machine on the host system shutdown

    Greetings,

    I installed WIn7 - 64 bit host system, WS8 and there seems to be a very nice and high quality configuration. I am very happy.

    There is a shared VM and it's a Setup 64-bit Ubuntu 10.04 Server functioning as a base configuration LAMP for some basic web applications, etc..

    I was unable to find the settings to control the behavior of the VM shared with the system that hosts stop. When I stop the host system, I believe that the common VM is off tension or stop gracefully, I don't know who. What I like best is for the shared VM will not apply instead. The reason is that starting the virtual machine is a bit complicated and requires manual intervention. Whereas, if it is stopped since a State suspended without manual intervention is necessary.

    I found that if there is a loss of power, I can hibernate the host system in time before my battery runs out. Resuming the host hibernate system works correctly and the VM shared within WS8 is back to its previous functional State.

    It would be nice and helpful being able to stop or restart the host system and know that the shared virtual machine has been automatically suspended. So now I have to log on to the user account from the host system and open WS8 and manually suspend the virtual machine before you stop or restart the host system.

    Is there a way to have the shared VM automatically suspended when the host system is stop?

    Thank you for your time and attention.

    You can configure the stop action by editing the following file:

    %ProgramData%\VMware\hostd\vmAutoStart.XML

    If you want to configure the action stop for all virtual machines, find the section of under the section. Change it on hold

    If you want to change the action stop for only this one machine virtual, you must first configure this shared VM to be started automatically (in WS, right-click on the item 'VMs shared' in the library, select "manage computers virtual auto-start '). After doing this, manually change the vmAutoStart.xml. Find the entry for the virtual machine in the section (if you have more than one computer configured to autostart virtual, it will take some more digging to understand what VM to change). Change the entry for this virtual machine to hang.

    Save the file. Reboot the host (not auto-start power actions are only made when the host is restarted). Now when stop you the host, WS should suspend the VM (s)

    As always, manually edit the configuration files is not considered supported its use. Save the file before you edit. Adjust at your own risk.

  • Start a virtual machine from the CD player on vSphere Client

    ESXi V4.1-

    I know how to get the virtual machine to connect to start for the host's cd drive.  But it seems I have to first of all power on the virtual machine, and then connect the client drive - and at this time, it will be too late.

    Report from the boot of 5 s after powering did not connect the CD from client to the virtual computer for 5 seconds pause - connection was grey until the virtual machine launched at startup.

    Is it possible for a start of the virtual machine from the CD of customer?

    When you see the white bar (after the virtual machine is started) press the key "ESC". This will bring you to a boot menu (which may not show the CD at the moment). At this time to connect the CD-ROM drive and then 'hot' starts the virtual machine by pressing CTRL-ALT-INS. Once the white bar is displayed, press the ESC key again. Now you should see the CD-ROM as boot device.

  • How to move virtual machines from one host to another without full VI and vMotion?

    Hello

    could you help me with a question?

    I have two installed hosts with ESXi 3.5 U5, which are connected to the shared iSCSI (Openfiler) - VMs storage are installed on the storage disk. My requirement is to have a cheap solution of DR - in case of failure of a host, I need to move and start VM on the host of work. How to achieve without going through VMware Infrastructure 3.5 and vMotion?

    I found this article:

    http://www.virtualizetips.com/2010/04/how-to-move-a-VM-without-vCenter-or-storage-VMotion/

    but RCLI needs Infrastructure of VMware ESXi does not have default CLI So, how to move VMs between hosts (of course I mean "cold" move) without byuing any additonal VMware SW? It is generally possible in my situation?

    Thank you.

    ARO

    Danas

    If the virtual machines are running in shared storage (two guests see the same storage iSCSI or NFS) then it's simple. If a host goes down, then look for the data store on the ESXi host work. Navigate through folders for each virtual machine, right-click on the VMX file and add to the inventory. You will then be able to turn on the virtual machine.

    To move a virtual machine from one host to another, as long as both hosts had the same processors, you can pause the VM on the single host, browse and add the virtual machine to the inventory on the second break host and the United Nations.

    If the virtual machines are on local storage, but the two hosts are connected to the same shared storage, clone virtual machines on a daily basis from local storage to shared storage. Use something like ghettoVCB http://communities.vmware.com/docs/DOC-8760 make the clone. In the case of a server failure, you will be able to browse the data store, add to the inventory on the shared storage and switch the cloned machine.

  • virtual machine on the host computer has been detected to have a duplicate ip address

    I have seen several threads about this, but they are all either point to one) all resources used or b) firewall issues, and since I have neither, I wanted to see if anyone knows the answer...

    I have 6 servers identical all running the same exact version of ESX Server 3i 3.5.0 build-153875 and 5 of them work perfectly, but the 6th gives the same error as the original poster. It obviously isn't a problem of firewall from the 5 / 6 work very well and I connect to all (and about 15 other servers vmware ESX Server) of my workstation. The server with the question has no installed VMs (don't stay connected long enough to build a) and he passesd all hardware diagnostics I run on it. It has an IP address static, put in place like all other servers and ESX I reinstalled several times.

    Looking at the logs, I see this message: virtual machine on the host has been detected with a duplicate IP address

    How is this possible, is that there is still no VMs on that? Anyone know how to fix this?

    How is this possible, is that there is still no VMs on that? Anyone know how to fix this?

    Not sure why she complains VM, as you didn't tell any virtual machine set up, but define you as static.  Are you sure that you do not use an IP address already in use?

    Disable the ESX host, can you ping the IP?  Something is using this IP address somewhere, so the message can be vague, but something is causing an IP address conflict.

  • How to move the virtual machine from one host to another?

    The two boxes under ESXi 5.0 (hypervisors freely licensed).

    I have a virtual machine (FreeBSD) that I need to go to another box.

    Network ports are not the same, but I guess that's not a biggie to reconfigure the network cards. Other than that, I have to follow a few best practices/SOPS or copy & paste is everything I need to run perfectly on a different host?

    Thank you very much!

    FastSCP allows you to copy directly between hosts, so it can save a lot of time you copy.  I don't know what you mean by 'manually' copy files.  Do you mean using the vShpere client and download the files to a location then download them to the new host?  Either way works perfectly, but FastSCP you must save a step.

    If you have currently snapshots, you can consolidate first or leave em and just copy them with the rest of the virtual machine. There should be no need to do something with snapshots, if you perform a migration 'offline '.  As long as you take all the files, snapshots will be displayed on the destination host computer when you save the vm on the host.

    I did 'on-line' migration of large virtual machines first to the take a snapshot on the source host, copy basic to the first destination host disks while the virtual machine was still running on the source host.  When I was ready to migrate the CPU processing, I power off the virtual machine, copy the other files (which would include the deltas from disk and whatnot) and turn on the vm on the destination host (which would cause only a few minutes of downtime).  Later, I consolidate records by removing the snapshot on the destination host.  Way to a poor man to do a migration of vm on ESXi free edition with little downtime.
