    VCSA debug tools

    Der kleine Werkzeugkasten für die vCenter Server Appliance Die vCenter Server Appliance (VCSA) war ein großartiger Schritt in die richtige Richtung. Einfache Bereitstellung, keine Windows-Lizenz, einfaches Management über eine Web-GUI. Besonders in Version 6.0 gab es ein paar Probleme mit Logfiles, die nicht archiviert und/oder rotiert wurden. Oftmals wurde die Appliance bei der Bereitstellung auch … "VCSA debug tools" weiterlesen RSS Feed powered by ElasticSky This article can be found at[...]

  • Backup vCenter Server High Availability nodes

    Using Veeam Backup to protect VCHA The vCenterServer Appliance (VCSA) is becoming more and more important. Many vSphere-related services rely deeply on the availability of vCenter. So it was a logic move to make vCenter more available by having an active, a passive and a witness node of vCenter in your cluster.

  • VM performance data invisible for users with restricted permissions

    How to grant a user permissions to view performance charts Recently I’ve granted a user permissions to manage his VM in vCenter. I’ve created a custom role with extended VM permissions in vCenter and named it „VM-Admin“. I also permitted to view performance data of that VM. Unfortunately that didn’t work.

  • vSphere Web Client vs. vSphere Client

    Ein Argument, das viele Kunden vom Upgrade auf vSphere 6.5 abhält, ist der Verlust des vSphere-Clients (C# Client). Der auf Adobe Flash basierende Web-Client wurde nie richtig angenommen. Auch wenn einige Funktionen nur im Web-Client verfügbar sind, erledigen vSphere-Admins 95% ihrer Tätigkeiten im klassischen C#-Client. (Ich muss gestehen, ich gehöre auch dazu). Dabei wird oft … "vSphere Web Client vs. vSphere Client" weiterlesen RSS Feed powered by ElasticSky This article can be found a[...]

  • Gespeicherte Credentials für RDP verbieten

    Die Zugangsdaten einer Remote-Desktop Verbindung zu speichern, ist eine willkommene Erleichterung der täglichen Arbeit. Erlaubt sie doch schnellen Wechsel zwischen Serversystemen, ohne jedesmal das Passwort erneut einzugeben. Genau hierin besteht jedoch das Problem. Erhält ein Angreifer Zugriff auf ein Endgerät mit gespeicherten Verbindungsdaten, so hat er damit auch Zugriff auf die dort hinterlegten RDP Verbindungen. … "Gespeicherte Credentials für RDP verbieten" weiterlesen RSS Feed pow[...]
