Top Questions from Our Recent Horizon 6 View 6.2 Webinar

A few weeks ago we offered a free webinar on Horizon 6 View 6.2 Features and Basic Troubleshooting based on the very popular session VCI Linus Bourque delivered at VMworld US 2015. As always when we talk troubleshooting, there were lots of questions. We wanted to share a sample with you while you check out the recording.

What are the best free tools to monitor slowness information?
A good place to start are with the well-known tools like Windows: PerfMon, vCenter performance charts, for networks: wireshark, windows processes: process explorer; etc. VMware cannot sanction one tool over another. You may also want to ask at communities.vmware.com to see what others are using.

I have question around firewall, users are using VDI desktops from internet via security server. My question, does 4172 has to be opened even at internal firewall or is it not needed?
If you are using PCoIP as the default protocol, you must open 4172 TCP/UDP

If we have a bunch of replicas in vSphere that we cannot tell if they are even used, how do we go about deleting them? We are transitioned to pure storage and these replicas are on the old storage.
Use the Rebalance feature to “move” a linked-clone pool to a new datastore. If the replicas are “orphans” you’ll need to use the vdmadmin command to unlock the Replica folder, delete those replicas in question and then re-lock. Be careful when using this command and make sure you are deleting the right replica.

If we are not using security server do we just need 8443 open to the connection server for RDP?
If this is for internal, then 443 is all that is needed for RDP as long as the tunnel mode (default) is kept on. If direct connect is enabled then you’ll need 3389 opened as well. DO NOT USE this with the internet as you are opening your environment to an attack.

What are your thoughts on virus detection on View desktops similar to the regular desktops?
If you are going to use “traditional” anti-virus, you should stagger the number of VM scanned at any one time to reduce the possible storage I/O. Alternatively, leverage a vShield Endpoint like AV where the scan is done via the kernel/CPU. It will mean more CPU usage but will lessen the possible chance for I/O storage storms.

Is the Access Point an add-on price or does it come with the 6.2 upgrade?
See here for which version the AP is supported on. Depending on the version, you will determine whether you’ll be able to access it or need additional licensing

Is VMware working on something like vCenter alarms for View Horizon?
Not that I’m currently aware of. If you feel this would be helpful, please submit a feature request.

Top Questions From Our Micro-segmentation with NSX Webinar

johnkruegerLast week we held a webinar on Micro-segmentation with VMware NSX where VMware Certified Instructor John Krueger discussed the major features and capabilities of VMware NSX 6.1 and how in a software defined data center, a zero trust security model becomes achievable when taking advantage of features in VMware NSX. The conversation led to several questions, some of which we wanted to share with you.

Where can find step-by-step instruction for installation & configuration of NSX on ESX host?
Please see the NSX Installation and Upgrade Guide

What about network tools (reporting, monitoring, …) are they provided by NSX?
NSX provides Flow Monitoring for watching traffic through the Distributed Firewall. There is also a packet capture utility built into ESXi that is VXLAN aware, and can capture traffic at any point from the vNIC egress to physical uplink egress, and most points in between. NSX can take advantage of that capture utility and provides a traceflow function to capture and allow you to analyze traffic from one VM all the way to another across the Logical Network. NSX also provides auditing and logging for administrator activity. VMware provides a Management Pack for vRealize Operations Manager for deep insight into NSX, its Logical Network topologies and components, and a Content Pack for vRealize LogInsight for a more visual syslog analysis.

If NSX extends the L2 boundaries of a Data Center, how does redundancy and configuration protection works between two data centers? Will only one NSX Appliance manage both data centers? Or will each DC have its own NSX appliance? 
If I have multiple physical sites managed by a common vCenter Server, the NSX Manager will exist only in one site (likely on your management cluster). Because NSX has a 1-to-1 relationship with vCenter Server, if I have multiple NSX Managers, that implies multiple vCenter Servers. There is currently no synchronization between them.

NSX has to go through physical hardware to get to a different ESX host. Routing and firewall make a lot of sense to do at the hypervisor level but what are some of the benefits on the switch level if you still have physical hardware?
Because the routing and firewalling happen within the hypervisor, the network requirements for the physical infrastructure are lessened, making the physical easier to operate, less of a touch point, and a more stable asset.

Is the micro-segmentation concept based on the VXLAN VNI separation? Or is it more of an NSX logical segmentation on top?
Micro-segmentation is based on the fact that we can now provide security filtering at the virtual NIC, so that each NIC is now segmented and protected within the environment.

What is future of existing network engineers with introduction of VMware NSX?
I think they have a very bright future. Generally, the network engineers will be the ones managing the virtualized networks, not the vSphere administrators.

 

A recording of the webinar is now available on demand, along with all our other webinars from the past few months. Check them out.
