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)

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)

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.
