Speicherprobleme VMWare Console

Donnerstag, August 2nd, 2007

derzeit suche ich mit dem VMWare support ein Speicherproblem in der Console. 

Beim Backup wird der Speicher der Console verbraucht und es kommt zum neustart des hostd deamons, verursacht wird das ganze schein bar durch virtuelle maschienen die die mehrere Snapshot stände haben.

Werde nun mal testen ob es vielleicht mit der 3.0.2 vom ESX behoben ist, was ich nicht glaube.

Mittwoch, August 1st, 2007

Die neue version des vcb kann nun bestehende vcb-backup löschen, dies muss in der config.js eingestellt werden, was die Datensicherung erleichtert.

Hier die restlichen neuen features, mit downlowd link.

What’s New

This release of VMware Consolidated Backup (VCB) version 1.0.3, offers the following improvements:

  • Support for iSCSI Storage
    VMware Consolidated Backup now supports iSCSI storage in addition to Fibre Channel storage. Virtual machines residing on any iSCSI arrays listed in the
    Storage/SAN Compatibility Guide for ESX Server 3.x may now be backed up through the VMware Consolidated Backup framework.
  • Enhancements in Snapshot Functionality
    This release includes a feature in the integration modules for VCB to remove old snapshots remaining from previous backup jobs if the previous backup job failed to remove the old snapshots.
  • New Method to Identify Virtual Machines
    Before backing up a virtual machine using vcbMounter in the service console, you need to specify the virtual machine you want to back up. Prior to this release, virtual machines were identified using their DNS name or IP address only. This release supports identifying virtual machines by their display name when performing queries. Use this option if you have multiple virtual machines with the same IP address, but with different names. 
  • Better Flexibility in Fibre Channel Configuration
    Previously, VCB would not function correctly if LUNs were presented with different LUN IDs to the ESX Server(s) and the proxy. This resolved issue allows VCB to work with arrays that do not guarantee consistent LUN numbering. This only applies to virtual disks backed by VMFS disks, not by RDMs. 
  • New Backup Software Support
    New support for the following backup software versions:

    • Legato Networker version 7.3.2 Jumbo Update 1
    • Veritas NetBackup version 6.0
    • Symantec Backup Exec version 11d
    • Tivoli TSM Storage Agent version 5.3.3

     

  • VCB Proxy Operating System Support
    New support for the following operating systems to be used as a VCB proxy server:

    • Windows 2003 SP2
    • Windows 2003 R2 SP2
