Simplivity OVC

Hello Guys!

 

we have implemented four simplivity nodes and four compute nodes in our datacenter and everything is working well. currently we are trying to change the root password for all the nodes.

the compute nodes worked well after changing the ESXi root password, we were able to SSH and login normally, but for the simplivity nodes it seems that the OVC is trying to access the ESXi using the old password, thus it locks after many attempts.

what should we do on the OVC level after changing the ESXi root password on the simplivity nodes

 

Appreciate you feedbacks

best regards,

Hi Ahmad,

Open a case with Support and we can sort this out for you quickly by updating the ESXi creds. on the OVC.

Thanks,

Re: Simplivity OVC

@AhmadMDS,

Thanks for your query.

If the root password on your ESXi hosts has been changed, then what is called the "identity store" on each OVC needs to be changed.

Depending on what version of Simplivity you are running, this can be done by you yourself.

If you are running version 3.7.3 or later, the steps to do this would be:

  1.  SSH to each OVC
  2. Login with your admin account
  3. Elevate to the super user

#sudo su

#source /var/tmp/build/bin/appsetup

Once elevated, run the following command to update the identity store to reflect the new ESXi root password:

dsv-identitystore-init administrator@vsphere.local <mngmnt ip address ESXi host> root

 

You will be prompted for administrator@vsphere.local and root passwords.

Once provided, some services will restart but will have no impact to VM's, and takes a few seconds only.

 

This should resolve your issue.

 

If you are on a version prior to 3.7.3, then you will need to contact support to assist you in doing this, as the "dsv" command shown above is password protected on older builds.

 

Let me know how this goes.

 

Thanks, and best regards for now,

Apologies Ahmed.

When enetering the command to update the identitystore, please put single quotes around the username as follows:

dsv-identitystore-init 'administrator@vsphere.local' <mngmnt ip address ESXi host> root

Thanks,

Re: Simplivity OVC

Hi @AhmadMDS/Francisco,

Since 3.7.7 the identity store has now been renamed to the digitalvault and the command has been replaced with the below.

  • dsv-digitalvault-init <HMS User> <Host IP> <Host User>

HMS User = Hypervisor Mangement System administrator, For example: (administrator@vsphere.local)

Host IP = vmkernel management IP address of ESXi host housing specific OVC

​​​​​​​Host User = Root

Ensure to Elevate permissions prior to running above command.

  • sudo su
  • source /var/tmp/build/bin/appsetup
