how can config oneview to use proactiveHA feature in vcenter

Dear all

Hi

 

i want to run proactive HA

my server is DL580 G10

i have download and deploy HPE_OneView_for_VMware_vCenter OVA file and add vcenter to that.

also i have installed HPE_OneView_4.20.01.01_ESXi_Z7550-96659.ova

my vcenter ip = 10.10.50.60

my  one view ip = 10.10.50.77

my HPE_OneView_for_VMware_vCenter  = 10.10.50.78

now from Menu- Administrator - HPE one view for vmware vcenter - server integrations:

in this part we can see to tabs : Oneview - servers

 

in the server tab i added my esxi host (this is lab and i have just one esxi host )

in the one view tab i insert hpe one view ip and creditional  (10.10.50.77)

 

but during registering show : Error while registering Hypervisor Manager or Oneview

 

actually i am confused do i had to install two hp's products hpe oneview and oneview for vcenter ?

please see attach pics

 

in servers tab we had to insert esxi host info and inserted with succeed

but what is oneview tab ? Do i had to insert oneview info ( ip, user , pass) in that ?

Actually i inssert that info in this tab but according the pic could not register

and according to this i think had to install both products hpe one view and oneview for vcenter

is that correct ?

 

how can solve the problem ?

Re: how can config oneview to use proactiveHA feature in vcenter

From within the OneView for vCenter appliance, you need to register the vCenter with the appliance.

 

Follow the steps on page 19 of the Installation Guide HPE OneView for VMware vCenter Installation Guide (9.3)

 

Thanks,

Doug

Re: how can config oneview to use proactiveHA feature in vcenter

Once you have the appliance configured to talk to vCenter, then look at the information on Proactive HA starting on page 59 of the User Guide.

HPE OneView for VMware vCenter User Guide (9.3)

1- I don't know is that mandatory install hpe oneview in addition oneview for vcenter for run proactiveHA ?

2- according to attached pic in hpe oneview for vmware vcenter- server integration . there are 2 tabs

Re: how can config oneview to use proactiveHA feature in vcenter

First a bit of background. The HPE integration with VMware's P-HA is based on OneView. In order to use P-HA with HPE servers the servers must be managed by OneView. In addition to OneView you need OV4VC to link OneView to the vCenter. OV4VC collects information about HPE server from OneView and provides that information to the P-HA interface on the vCenter. 

You do not need to do the step in your first screen shot. This is for configuring legacy environemnts that do not include OneView. P-HA cannot be used in these environments. I would delete the Device Credentials under the server tab.

The error in your second screen shot can be ignored for now. It is telling you that the OneView appliance cannot connect to your vCenter. Mostly likely because you haven't imported the vCenter certificate into OneView. This is only used for the Grow Cluster feature and can be ignored for P-HA.

Now you need to enable P-HA in vCenter. 

In vSphere click Host and Clusters  -> click on your cluster -> Configure -> vSphere Availability -> P-HA Edit -> Enable

You should now see HPE OneView for vCenter in the list of Proactive HA Providers

You really need v-motion with more than one host to play with P-HA.

Re: how can config oneview to use proactiveHA feature in vcenter

1. Yes, you need both OneView and OneView for vCenter. 

2. You must have the following:

vCenter IP and credentials registered with OV4VC (done via the OV4VC appliance admin page at the appliance IP)

Configure OV4VC with your OneView IP and credentials (vSphere->Administration->HPE OneView for vCenter->Server Integrations->OneView

OneView managed Server Hardware (hosts) in the cluster. All hosts in the cluster must be OneView managed.

Re: how can config oneview to use proactiveHA feature in vcenter

According to hp document i have appear this error

NOTE: If the vCenter certificate is not added in the HPE OneView, the following error message is
displayed for the missing certificate:
VMware vCenter is not registered with OneView. Ensure OneView has a
network path to the vCenter and can validate the vCenter certificate

 

but not say solution for that

how cn solve that ?

Re: how can config oneview to use proactiveHA feature in vcenter

Registering your vCenter in OneView is not related to this. Will not hurt anything but will not help. Same with iLO addresses and credentials. Not releated and in fact should not be done. With OneView in the environment there is no need to enter iLO or host credentials in OV4VC. 

If you are not seeing the HPE OneView provider in the P-HA providers list then I can think of a couple of things. OV4VC cannot communicate with the vCenter. Could be a networking issue. Or the vCenter user account used by OV4VC does not have adaquate privilage.

You can check the Proactive HA log in OV4VC. Download a log dump from the appliance admin website and check this file.

\log\var\log\ov4vc\proactiveha\proactiveha.log

Re: how can config oneview to use proactiveHA feature in vcenter

thsnks

1- Is that yor means not necessary to add ilo or esxi host that are in my cluster to oneview for vcenter pluin in vcenter such as attach pic ?

 

2- if adding esxi host to that part is not necessary , what happen will be do if i add them ? also during add them we can add server via esxi host or ilo what is difference between them ?

Re: how can config oneview to use proactiveHA feature in vcenter

1. Correct. When you have OneView managing your servers you do not need to enter iLO, host, OA, or Virtual Connect credentials in OV4VC. When OneView is managing the environment OV4VC can get everything it needs from OneView and does not need to talk to the hardware directly.

2. Adding these credentials will cause OV4VC to collect data from iLO and ESXi every few minutes. This data will never be used since the data is already available from OneView. I would recommend removing all Device Credentials. They are only needed when OneView is not being used. All new features including Proactive HA require OneView.

Re: how can config oneview to use proactiveHA feature in vcenter

So thanks

1- now Is that possoble just deploy OV4VC without oneview for use proactiveHA and add host credential with ILO in oneview for vCenter plugin such as attach pic (44.jpg) ? or oneview is mandatory for use proactiveHA ?

 

2- if oneview is mandatory for use proactiveHA can I add ilo hos credentials as monitor not manage with oneview standard license or for run proactiveHA oneview advance license is mandatory ?

 

3- is that need add oneview in vCenter in server integration according aatch pic (2.jpg) ?

Re: how can config oneview to use proactiveHA feature in vcenter

Proactive HA requires OneView and OV4VC

So you will need to register vCenter with OneView (doing it via iLO will not work). You should be able to do it with the OneView Standard license

Doug
