Strange event from ESX host forwarded to SIM

Re: Strange event from ESX host forwarded to SIM

Hello again,

 

i looked at the log and this is a identify log not a data collection log, i will look if you can see logging for datacollection. The only things that remain are the SSH and SMH errors, if you look at the credentials stored  for this server do you see SSH and/or trust credentials?

 

I'll have a look at the datacollevtion logging saying more than ok.

Kind regards,

Andrew

Re: Strange event from ESX host forwarded to SIM

Hello Andrew.

As mentioned previously, data collection doesn't return anything.

Below is the data collection output for two of our ESX hosts.

Please note standard output and standard error are "None".

Credentials used are the same for the ESX hosts - Access Type: wbem, Credential: root, Source: Discovery (EXSI), OK to Try Others: No.

Re: Strange event from ESX host forwarded to SIM

Hello again,

That's what i mean by no logging, i believe the logging can be set higher and then you can find the logging in the logs folder in the SIM installation folder, currently i'm not anywhere near a SIM. Server, monday is the first day i'm can check for you.
Kind regards,

Andrew

Re: Strange event from ESX host forwarded to SIM


One of the classes is reporting the error.

If you SSH into your ESXi host and run the following command

enum_instances SMX_ComputerSystem root/HPQ

Look for this line that says: "Operational Status"
Example in my lab: OperationalStatus = { 6, 2, 6, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, }

StatusDescriptions = { One or more of the subsystems that make up this computer system have an Operational status value of Error, OK, Error, OK, OK, OK, OK, OK, OK, }

In my setup it is reflected upon the following below status components in order, 6 is error for SMX_ComputerSystem, 2 for SMX_BladeEnclosureCollection, 6 for SMX_EthernetCollection etc etc.
{SMX_ComputerSystem,SMX_BladeEnclosureCollection,SMX_EthernetCollection,SMX_FanCollection,SMX_MPCollection,SMX_MemoryCollection,SMX_ProcessorCollection,SMX_SAStorageSpecificCollection,SMX_SensorCollection}


So the 6 error status is Error in my SMX_EthernetCollection.

If you run the command enum_instances SMX_EthernetCollection root/HPQ

You will now see the error reflected for that status and you will need to investigate on your end why, for me it was because it's not plugged in. The SIM Health status should reflect that it's in a major status which it is.

[root@SERVER:~] enum_instances SMX_EthernetCollection root/HPQ

SMX_EthernetCollection.InstanceID="HPQ:SMX_EthernetCollection-1"
InstanceID = HPQ:SMX_EthernetCollection-1
GroupStatusDescriptions = { Error, }
GroupOperationalStatus = { 6, }
Caption = Ethernet Adapter Collection
Description = This is a collection of all Ethernet Ports.
ElementName = Ethernet Adapter Collection
[root@SERVER:~]


0(Unknown)
1(Other)
2(OK)
3(Degraded)
6(Error)
10(Stopped)

Also there is no SMH modules for Esxi so you wouldn't be able to access it 2381/2301

Hello and thanks for responding.

 

Let me pass that information along to our VMWare admin's and see what they say.

 

Thanks again.

Re: Strange event from ESX host forwarded to SIM

Thans for the help Nokia, if there is a nic or any other error it should be visible in the status right?

And you are correct that there should not be a SMH. These became obsolete when they stopped with the SNMP agents and switched to WBEM.

I've never seen these errors since we use Gen8 and AMS for a long time.
Kind regards,

Andrew
