The number of heartbeat for the host data warehouses is 0, which is less than required: 2


I have trouble creating my DRS cluster + storage of DRS, I have 3 hosts esxi 5.1 for the task

First, I created the cluster, no problem with that, so the DRS storage was created and now I can see in the Summary tab

"The number of heartbeat for the host data warehouses is 0, which is less than required: 2".

I search the Web and there are similar problems when people has only a single data store (the one that came with ESXi) and need to add another but in my case... vcenter detects any...

In the views of storage I see the store of data (VMFS) but for some strange reason the cluster not

In order to achieve data warehouses minimum (2) can I create an NFS and map it in THE 3 esxi hosts? Vcenter which consider a play config?

Thank you

You probably only have local data warehouses, which are not that HA would require for this feature (pulsations datastore) to work properly.

You will need either 2 iSCSI, FC 2 or 2 NFS volumes... Or a combination of the any of them, for this feature to work. If you don't want to use this feature, you can also turn it off:

    The answer may lie in the INITIAL_EXTENT configuration in your space of tables, check DBA_tablespaces view.

    Also, try to use autoextend on and maxsize in your file data creation but better try with the highest value during the action of the mentioned error.

  • Use get - view to get the host data center

    Hey guys,.

    I'm trying to shoot the host number of name and the version with get-view.

    I got to that, but I also want to get the data center that host belongs to.

    How can I get that advice please, don't have Googling has not helped a lot.

    Thank you


    With the ExtensionData property we have access to the object VirtualMachine .

    Most of the managed objects vSphere has a property, called Parent, which points to the object that is connected to our object (the ' mother' in other words).

    The content of the Parent property is a MoRef (pointer). To get the real object, we use the cmdlet Get-view with this MoRef.

    We repeat this process in a while loop until the parent object is an object of data center .

    It's a bit like the structure of the tree in the vSphere Client.

    You start with the ESX (i) server and back up in the tree until you encounter a data center.

  • example of Perl to get the host data center

    Hi all

    I try to get the data center for a specific host.  Now I can get the full list of data centers with:

    use strict;

    use warnings;

    use VMware::VIM2Runtime;

    use VMware::VILib;




    My $dcenter_views = Vim::find_entity_views (view_type = & gt; "Data center");

    {foreach (@$dcenter_views)}

    Print $_ - & gt; name. "," . $_ - & gt; name. ";;";


    But I can't seem to find a way that works to get it to only a specific host, rather then a complete list.  Could someone please provide an example of how to do this?

    So I cleaned up your script a little, mostly some optimizations.  I used the construction in the occupied Palestinian territories: module to add a host name parameter to the script instead of using ARGV.  I changed it so it checks for a valid host view before you start your loop, no point in a loop in data centers, if your host name is not a valid real hostname in your inventory of VI.  Take a look at the label of the LOOP, I cleaned up.   You want to leave the loop after you find the data center.

    Just to show you how much faster my original script is logical, I wrote it also another version of my script using the Perl toolkit.  It was > 3.5s faster on my independent ESX host.  It is largely because find_entity_view() functions essentially look the whole game ManagedObject property reference, which is pretty intensive.  This gets quite slow in a larger environment and is compounded in a nested loop.  Usually, I try to avoid the use of find_entity_view() strongly in my scripts for this reason.

    Do not hesitate to work with whatever version you like best.  I think the good scripts to do the work.

    Find_entity_views() using nested:

    #!/usr/bin/perl -w
    use strict;
    use warnings;
    use VMware::VIRuntime;
    my %opts = (
         hostname => {
         type => "=s",
         variable => "HOSTNAME",
         help => "Name of managed ESX host",
         required => 1,
    my ($host_views, $datacenter, $hostname);
    $hostname = Opts::get_option('hostname');
    my $host = Vim::find_entity_view(
         view_type => 'HostSystem',
         filter => { name => $hostname },
    unless (defined $host) {
         die "No host matching '$hostname' found.\n";
    my $datacenter_view = Vim::find_entity_views(view_type => 'Datacenter');
    LOOP: foreach (@$datacenter_view)
         $datacenter = $_->name;
         $host_views = Vim::find_entity_views(
              view_type => 'HostSystem', begin_entity => $_
         foreach (@$host_views)
              if ($_->name eq $host->name)
                   print "$datacenter\n";
                   last LOOP;

    The sample output:

    $time perl --server= --username=root --password=vmware --hostname=ESX-01.vmwlab.local
    real     0m7.502s
    user     0m1.872s

    use VMware::VIRuntime;
    my %opts = (
         hostname => {

  • Import my own device from the host data store

    This is my first post so Hello all who read this.

    I am currently runing ESX 3.5i directly on the hardware of a test done home server (tests, the fonstionality before rolling it into production) here is my problem

    I could create and install an a virtual machine (windows 2K 3 R2 server) and once all the basic configuration were made I exported the virtual machine as a unit. now, the comand export will only export file on the computer of gest. I was able to download the 2 files (hard and .ovf) on the host's data center. Now, I would like to deploy a new instance of the VM on the server. But when I drop & gt; virtual appliance & gt; I have only the option import from the hard drive of gest. I want to do it directly from the data store, so I did not download the file whenever I ride on a new virtual machine.

    Just a note I will administer the trought host VPN exclusively in production so it'll take fo never download the entire server every time.

    I hope that I was clear enough, if not feel free to ask questions.

    Thank you!

    Edit: spelling mistake little


    So if I get this right I would create a virtual (windows XP for example) machine i would be VPN on this machine open a remote destop window there and then open the VMware console in this environment and then use it to make my new server deployment. Did I get it all?

    That is right. The reason is mainly the latency. You will not have much and if the VPN interrupts the action you take also WITHOUT giving up and continue until you reconnect.

    Can you tell me if there is a more easier way to do it?

    It's the simplest way.

    Best regards

    Hi Dan,.

    You can retrieve the host name by using the Get-VMHost cmdlet

    $selectedVM = read-host "Enter VM Name"
    $vmhost = Get-VMHost -VM (Get-VM -Name $selectedVM) | Select-Object Name
    $runhost = $vmhost.Name

  • Can't see the iSCSI data warehouses after reboot

    I have 2 ESX 3.5.0 u3 hosts running on Dell PowerEdge 2950 servers and connect to a Dell PowerVault MD3000i. Recently, I upgraded the MD3000i gen.2 firmware, and after the upgrade, one of the MD3000i controllers began to experience extremely slow (3-4 MB/s) write to its LUNS assigned speed. Dell support reviewed my setup and said I have a configuration problem - all 4 of the MD3000i ports are on the same subnet, while according to them, they should be divided into two subnets. I have interruption scheduled for this Saturday, close all virtual machines, added an additional VMkernel port and a service console for the new subnet on each host, removed addresses for two of the ports of discovery dynamic and restarted the two hosts. When they restarted, I changed the IP address on a single port on each controller. The servers came, restored 4-port iSCSI sessions and can see two LUNS defined on the MD3000i, but cannot see data warehouses - it's like they went, and LUN are naked. Creating new data warehouse will wipe away their own, and while I have current backups, I would rather jump restore all this from scratch. Is there anything that can be done here?

  • effectiveness of the sql data warehouse and star/snowflake schema


    We use and need to improve the performance of queries for reports.  schema of data warehouse star/snowflake

    In addition to indexing, partitioning with star_transformation enabled etc I'm condisriing impact of the following on the performance of the queries.

    makes central (more than 1 billion lines) is associated with a client of dimesnion (a few hundred thousand lines) which in turn joined with the latest version of the dimesnion (includes approximately 30 000 lines).

    The table with a few hundred thousand lines (client dimesnion) alwsys must be questioned as stored data against the version of the customer at the time-, we wonder just latest_customer what users want to see

    the most recent version of the attributes of customer to stop data being fragemented through several lines in the report.

    If consideration would be more efficient to create a dimension that is equivalent to the customer but also stores the most recent version of the client attributes on the line-this means customer dimensuion many more columns but queries could would avoid additional research of this array of rank k 30.

    Thoughts are - it would be a material advantage?

    At the monent users request latest_customer to say would get all customers belonging to a certain multiple string.

    If change as above, then they would be interviewing the customer with a few hundred thousand lines dimension.

    Because a lot depends on the model of data access and data dissemination, we cannot really much more than only sb.  However, keep in mind Oracle accesses data by blocks (copies blocks and sometimes several blocks), in order to become more broad lines could have a paradoxical effect of not getting enough blocks in memory until you need it.

    It can help to visualize how data should be obtained (google something like visual sql and Karen Morton or Jonathan Lewis), as well as see the estimate and rowcounts actual imagined different plans.

    I think that Artacus missed the part about March 14 09.

    Assuming col2 is a DATE:

    SELECT    col1
    ,        MIN (col2)     AS earliest_col2
    FROM       foo
    GROUP BY  col1
    HAVING       MIN (col2) = TO_DATE ('14-MAR-2009', 'DD-MON-YYYY')

    Remember that the DATEs always include hours, minutes and seconds. The above query displays a line only if the col2 earlier in the Group was exactly at midnight (00:00:00) on March 14. If you want any time March 14, change the HAVING clause:

    HAVING       TRUNC (MIN (col2)) = TO_DATE ('14-MAR-2009', 'DD-MON-YYYY')
