Do you have a vSphere 5.1 environment? Have you ever been faced with an issue where one of your ESXi hosts experienced an outage and you were tasked with trying to figure out what went wrong and what virtual machines were affected? Then this video should be of some use and interest to all of you who ever are faced with the need to troubleshoot ESXi outages and failures.
This video features a discussion and demonstration of using the vSphere Web Client or PowerCLI to identify which virtual machines were impacted and restarted after an ESXi host failure.
In this demo, we have our good friend Duncan Epping who is a Principal Architect within the VMware Technical Marketing team who focuses on Cloud Infrastructure, go through the various places where you can find some information and details concerning virtual machines that may have failed during the ESXi outage.
For additional details concerning this topic and demonstration, head on over to Duncan’s blog post here.
