    What do we mean by Virtual Host and Document root??

    DB:4.07:Virtual Host pf

    virtual hosts and document root (in this case) are to do with server settings,

    when a browser is directed to a web page it interrogates the DNS (which you set up with your network connection) for the IP address where the web site can be found, there may be more than one domain at that IP#, so for a proper HTTP request there is a Host field in the headers.

    HTTP servers are written to read that header and serve files from an appropriate directory, aka the document root

    as for "what has this to do with java", im guessing the OP is configuring tomcat or writing an HTTP server...

    DB:3.95:Restoring A Vm Backed Up By Vcb To Another Esx Server ax



    Hi,

    every night we do a file-level backup of our virtual machines. Additional we use VCB to backup the whole virtual machine for disaster recovery.

    We have 4 ESX servers in a HA/DRS cluster at the moment and I wrote a script that runs on each ESX server so all virtual machines residing on each ESX server are backed up. We don't want to use a VCB proxy...

    Now I have a big problem. I tried to restore a virtual machine on another ESX server for testing purposes. It didn't work.

    I used the following command on another ESX-Server:

    "vcbRestore -s path-to-vcbbackup-of-vm -b overwrite -L 6"

    I got some errors like these ones:

    \[2007-02-28 12:27:17.759 'vcbRestore' 3076460672 error] Error: ResourcePool "/ha-folder-root/ha-datacenter/host/ESX-SERVER1/Resources" for VM not found.

    \[2007-02-28 12:27:17.799 'App' 3076460672 verbose] Got vmdb error -14 (Pipe connection has been broken) when invoking \[logout] on \[vim.SessionManager:ha-sessionmgr]

    I have tried to edit the "catalog" file without any success. I changed the following lines:

    host= ESX-SERVER1

    resourcepool= "/ha-folder-root/ha-datacenter/host/ESX-SERVER1/Resources"

    to

    host= ESX-SERVER2

    resourcepool= "/ha-folder-root/ha-datacenter/host/ESX-SERVER2/Resources"

    The same error appeared.

    If I try to restore the virtual machine on the same ESX server where the virtual machine resided during backup it works great!!!

    That's a big problem for us. What if one ESX server crashes? - We cannot restore any of our virtual machines using "vcbRestore".

    Is there anything else I have to change? Any idea? Thanks!

    DB:3.95:Restoring A Vm Backed Up By Vcb To Another Esx Server ax


    Hi Mittel!

    I'm not familiar with perl, so I decided to improve my own bash script.

    I have one question about the behaviour of DRS while your script is running:

    When I start my script on an ESX server it might be that a virtual machine is beeing vmotioned to another ESX server in a cluster and the backup does not work for this virtual machine. I think the problem is that if I run a script like this one the command "vmware-cmd -l" is only executed once.:

    for VirtualMachines in `vmware-cmd -l`

    do

    ...

    done

    If a virtual machine is beeing vmotioned to another ESX server while this script is running the script would not realize that the virtual machine isn't running on the current ESX server anymore.

    So how to solve this problem? Is it a good idea to "block" all virtual machines by creating snapshots for all virtual machines like this one?:

    VMs=vmware-cmd -l

    for VirtualMachine in $VMs

    do

    vmware-cmd $VirtualMachine createsnapshot

    done

    for VirtualMachine in $VMs

    do

    ###Commands to export a VMDK-file

    done

    I think I have to use the variable $VMs so that the content does not change.

    At first I create snapshots for all virtual machines. Now they are blocked for VMotion, aren't they? Right after that I run the script as usual and after that I would remove all snapshots.

    What do you think?

    Two things to check for:

    I was curious if it was at all possible to create a new virtual machine on a VM host and transfer a snapshot from another VM host and preform a restore using the snapshot to the other virtual machine I just created on the new host. Basically what I'm asking is if I take Snapshot A from VM A on Host A and move it over to Host B, can I restore VM A using Snapshot A on Host B using VM B? Thank you all in advance!

    DB:3.64:Restore Vm From Different Vm's Snapshot. x8


    You can't mix and match a snapshot belonging to one VM with another. Snapshots capture deltas from a reference VM's disk(s) and are coupled.

    You can however take a snapshot of a VM and copy all the files over. How it works depends if the VM is running. If you take a snapshot with memory, shut down the VM, copy all the VM files over to the other host, you may have problems resuming from the snapshot if there are CPU differences.

    If you don't take the memory, you may be able to restore but you would still need to shut down the VM in order to copy all the necessary files.

    VMware Consolidated Backup allows you to take a full export of a VM which is similar to this snapshotting. The advantage is that you don't have to shut down the VM in order to get at the files.

    What is Nessus doing when it sees that the Mac Address of a remote machine is a VMWare Virtual Machine? It specifically has a policy to check for this.

    I don't know about Nessus. Are you installing a client in your VM that connects to a scanner? Or are black-box testing your VM? Since a VM in NAT mode is borrowing host networking a scanner like nmap or nessus should be seeing an OS X target. You could also be port-forwarding services on host ports to your guest VM, so a port scanner should be able to detect those.

    What is the definition of "remote" ... Remote is then only on the same physical LAN?

    As far as MAC address tracking goes yes, only on the physical LAN. MAC addresses are lost beyond your IP gateway. Any remote server will have their nearest IP gateway as the source MAC address for a TCP/IP connection as that is where those packets are coming from.

    The exception is, if you have a client/agent interrogating your VM and revealing MAC addresses in the data stream as part of a report.

    When I then run the new virtual XP machine in Windows 7, everything runs fine (and faster as well).
    The one issue I'm experiencing, however, is that I cannot access the host (Windows 7) drives from virtual machine, even though I've shared the drives on Windows 7.
    BTW, if I run the built-in "Windows XP Mode" virtual machine, I see the host drives when I run Windows Explorer from within that virtual machine.
    What is it that I'm missing? (BTW, it was a *ton* easier in MS Virtual PC 2007; I simply "mapped" a shared drive in the Settings dialog and then see that drive when I run Windows Explorer from within that virtual machine.)
    Another thought: should I simply abandon the above, install MS Virtual PC 2007 on the Windows 7 box and then create the virtual machine with MS Virtual PC 2007 (in lieu of the built-in Windows Virtual PC in Windows 7)?

    You will see two .. duplicates. As well you are likely to see the db and listener and other similar objects discovered from both the physical and virtual agents. Simply remove them from the physical agent config.
    The physical agent should likely just have the host agent target types.

    Piyanut

    DB:3.52:How To Collect Web Server Logs From Apache Incase Virtual Host? f7


    Sorry for the delay in getting back to you on this issue. I have a workaround for this that might work for you. Basically what you can do is to make a "new" device type for each vhost. Essentially, you will just take the guts of the Apache XML and use it for each "new" device type (vhost).

    So, let's say you have 3 vhosts on that server, now you will have the following new devices:

    vhost1, vhost2, vhost3 Their corresponding device XMLs will be Apache XMLs but will be named vhost1msg.xml, vhost2msg.xml, and vhost3msg.xml.

    You then go and create 3 new File Reader definitions, once fore each vhost device. You then assign these definitions to 3 different File Reader connections, so that you create 3 folders on Envision:

    vhost1_1.2.3.4

    vhost2_1.2.3.4

    vhost3_1.2.3.4

    On the server your SFTP agent is set to send the individual access logs to their corresponding folder. As long as 1.2.3.4 is set a a multi-device it should discover these 3 vhosts.

    That should do it. I have used this method in the past and it worked.

    HI All,

    I want to ask you if it is possible to perform hot migration of virtual machines between standalone host and host connected to cluster. Standalone host is using vswitches, cluster hosts are using distribution switches. All hosts are connected to the same vCenter. Currently i cannot do it using vmotion because Im getting information that there is no such network on other side.

    Is there any workaround?

    Regards

    DB:3.52:Virtual Machines Migration Between Host And Cluster sp


    vMotion of virtual machines can be done provided the destination host a similar network configuration and hardware configuration( CPU)

    This is to ensure that the VM continues to connect on network when migrated to new host.

    Two workaround which we can perform now ;

    1. Create a new portgroup on the destination host for temporary use until VM is migrated to destination with an uplink capable of handling VM traffic.

    Once done we can migrate virtual machine networking to vDS and VM will continue to work on new host vDS switch.

    2. Add the existing host to cluster and then migrate network to vDS and then migrate VM's to other host.

    A recover of the virtual machine will fail if the virtual machine already exists in

    should not exist in the datastores selected for recovery.

    /me is a bit confuzed here....

    I've been monitoring the virtual switch (hub?) stats that vmware provide in /proc/vmnet. If I send packets from host A to host B then the stats for host C in the same network will know that this traffic is not really for this host and log this as "Dropped mismatch". In host A and B this will have impact in the TX and RX stats as expected.

    When all the logic for making this switch behaviour is present, why would it still work as a hub? It should be the simplest thing in the world making it work like a switch. Is there a hidden setting somewhere?

    DB:3.49:How Do I Add An Existing Virtual Maschine To Esx Host ? c1



    Hi,

    we have an environment for testing ESX server 3 and VirtualCenter 2 without a SAN at the moment. So all virtual maschines are stored on local drives. I've reinstalled our ESX host and cannot add my existing virtual maschines. If I create a new virtual maschines and select "use an existing virtual disk" the information are created twice like "ServerOne" (allready exists)and "ServerOne_1"(created) on the vmfs volume but VMDK files are only stored in the first folder.

    How do I add an existing virtual maschine to my ESX host without creating a new virtual maschine or how do I let the ESX host use an existing VM? Is there any possibility to let the ESX host or VirtualCenter "scan" for existing virtual maschines?

    Thank You!

    DB:3.48:Restoring Backup s7





    Hello,

    I made a backup of a website from Server A, and I need to copy it to server B. On server B I have created the domain name and uploaded the backup file but when I click restore it states Cannot restore Virtual host: Virtual host already exists in Plesk and then stops. Also if i try and upload the backup not within the domain but within the client it just dissapears so does anyone know how I can restore my site from Server A to Server B if I have the backup file (.xml.zip)

    Thanks.

    DB:3.48:Restoring Backup s7




    Hi,

    On Plesk 9 and higher version, you can use Backup Manager to backup and restore accounts.

    When you backup your accounts on server A then you need to put those backup files as it is in default Back up folder of Plesk.
    You can restore whole Client account as well as an individual web site.
    The backup files will be visible under Backup Manager only when the user name of client and web site is exactly same on server B as that of on server A.
    So for e.g. if you have domain say domain1.com on server A with user as domain1 then you need to create this domain with exactly same user domain1 on server B in this case when you copy backup files from server A to server B under \Parallels\Plesk\Backup\clients\ then it will be visible in Backup Manager of domain in Plesk which you can restore.
    If the user name is different then the backup files will not be visible

    The five drives on the server are managed by your hardware RAID controller as follows:

    - - Drive 0 (36.8GB) Drive 1 (36.8GB) in RAID 1 as /dev/sda

    - With RAID 1, your OS will see only 50% of the capacity of the array. The other 50% is used for fault tolerance. Since you're seeing /dev/sda1 and /dev/sda2, you've partitioned the drive into at least two partitions. Not sure where you're getting 47.4GB+ of space from ... are you sure those aren't 74GB drives?

    - - Drive 2 (36.8GB), Drive 3 (36.8GB), and Drive 4 (36.8GB) in RAID 5 as /dev/sdb - since you're not seeing this from the COS, it has either not been formatted or has been formatted as a VMFS volume and is under the control of the vmkernel

    - With RAID 5, your OS will see ((N-1) * ) capacity. One drive's worth of capacity is used for fault tolerance

    The "df" command is showing the storage that is under the control of the COS. Since your RAID controller is aggregating your physical drives into RAID arrays (above), you're only seeing two "disks".

    The "vdf" command will show the same information as the "df" command plus any storage that is under the control of the vmkernel (i.e. VMFS volumes).

    DB:3.47:Is A Bare Metal Backup/System State Backup Necessary Of A Virtual Server 1p

    Hello,
    you should first define your recovery goals before you choose a backup strategy.
    If your only goal is to restore the VMs as a VM, you should protect the VM and not the OS inside the VM. That means using host level backup.
    This will not only protect the data inside the VM it will also protect the VM configuration and allow faster restore since you only need a running host with enough capacity. You do not have to go through the bare metal restore process, just select a host
    and restore the VM.
    Some applications (exchange, sql etc.) might still need application protection along with VM protection.This posting is provided AS IS with no warranties.

    DB:3.47:Virtual Machine Down mc


    No worries. The problem will be due to the admission control settings you have on your HA cluster. You may want to look into changing the admission control if you only have a two node cluster, as you may also get problems when attempting to put a host in maintenance mode etc.

    I suspect the setting you are using is basically reserving a host in case you have problems - with this option you will not be able to run virtual machines on that host during normal running.

    If you have more than 1 CDROM drive (physical or virtual - doesn't matter) installed on the host system, the virtual system may not pick up the correct CDROM drive if the CDROM drive setting in the guest configuration is set to "AUTOMATIC".

Just try /etc/init.d/vmware stop, then change (all) VNET_xxx_HOSTONLY_HOSTADDR in /etc/vmware/locations to value you like, and then start /etc/init.d/vmware again - and you should see that vmnetxxx now uses IP address you specified. Just do not use .2 and .128-.255 - then you have to modify other files in /etc/vmware too.

    Thanks a lot for your helpful suggestions, guys, I really appreciate it, I'm glad something worked in the end, though it was a pretty roundabout way to do something

    which should have been simple, wonder why the VMWare server folks dont give an easy option to share files between the desktop and virtual machine.

    Regards,

    Sam

    DB:3.42:Host-Only Network And Shared Folder x8



    Hi all!

    I'm experiencing a trouble with VMWare server 1.0.6. With my PC not connected to a LAN I started a Virtual Machine with host-only network configured. The host has IP 192.168.111.1 and the guest 192.168.111.128.

    From host to guest I can map a folder but I cannot connect a shared folder from guest to host. Pinging from guest to host is ok.

    What goes wrong?

    Tank you!

    That's correct if no physical network connection is available.

    From host to guest I can map a folder but I cannot connect a shared folder from guest to host. Pinging from guest to host is ok.

    Has the host an active firewall which might block services?

    Has the share on the host the appropriate rights (use "Everyone - Full" for testing)?

    Do you use the host name or the IP address for mapping the share?

    DB:3.42:Host Os Cannot Access Cd Or Usb Drive k7



    I cannot access the CD drive from the Host OS. The virtual machines can access it just fine. It just the Host OS I am having trouble with.

    Any Ideas?

    GSX Server 3.1 with Windows Enterprise server 2003 as the host and the guest OS's

    Thanks

    DB:3.42:Host Os Cannot Access Cd Or Usb Drive k7


    is there's a possibility that AUTORUN was disabled as part of the install and that is why it might seem as the host cant see the cdrom or USB drive?

    If that is not the case have you try reinstalling the device drivers on the host?

    DB:3.42:Vmware Server: Cannot Print From Host When Virtual Computer Is Running 99



    Hello,

    I have a WinXP Pro 64-bit host computer with the latest version of VMWare Server installed on it. The virtual computer that I created uses WinXp Pro 32-bit and has the parallel port as a part of it. I can print to the physically attached printer on the host when the virtual computer is not running. When the virtual computer is running, I can print to the printer, but when I return to the host computer while the virtual computer is running, the host cannot print to the printer. The print job gets queued, but won't print until the virtual computer is exited. Is there a way for the host and virtual computer to share the printer? I have not seen any settings. In all other respects, the virtual computer is working perfectly.

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    DB:3.42:Cannot Add Host To A Virtual Centre 88



    I have created an ESX 3.0 server and various VMs. Am trying to import this host in to my virtual centre. I run through the wizard to add the host, looks ok until the end gives me error message

    The operation is not supported on the object

    any ideas

    DB:3.42:Cannot Add Host To A Virtual Centre 88


    Is the VM you are trying to connect local to the ESX server, or is it across a WAN? If across a WAN, it could be related to a timeout issue which is explained in the link below. Even if it isnt, you can still manually load the VC client on that server which should make it manageable.

    DB:3.42:Bare Metal Restore (Simulation) In Vmware Workstation 7a



    I'm practicing various backup and recovery operations with virtual machines in VMware workstation 9.

    My guest machine is Windows 2008 Server (SP2)

    I backed up this virtual machine to an external hard drive - this was a full server backup meant for a later bare metal restore.

    So I deleted the virtual machine completely and then recreated it as it would exist just before installation of the OS.

    When I boot from the W2K8 .iso image (stored on the hard drive of the host machine), I select the repair option and attempt to perform a bare metal restore from the external hard drive (USB connected).

    If I connect the ExtHD after selecting the repair option and let Windows scan for disks (for a valid backup file) it scans and scans and scans... but never finds the external hard drive.

    If I connect the ExtHD before booting from the .iso image, the boot process stops (freezes) - and continues if I disconnect the ExtHD.

    If I reconnect... freeze.

    And yes, I am sure that the ExtHD is indeed connected to the virtual machine (and not the host machine). There is the little icon in the lower right hand corner that can be right-clicked to connect to or disconnect from the virtual machine (and thus connect/disconnect to/from the host machine).

    ******

    Do I need to load a driver?

    If so, which one?

    And how would I load it?

    If it's on external media and the media cannot be detected... well, that's not going to work.

    I also notice that even when an OS is installed, the virtual machine (unlike the host) cannot use the USB 3.0 ports of the host. Are special drivers required?

    Host machine is a Lenovo laptop (W5xx workstation series).

    Yes, I can boot from a DVD (external DVD drive).

    And yes, USB connected.

    DB:3.42:Error When Moving Virtual Machine From Linux Host To Windows 2k3 Host az



    Hi All!

    Newbie question here... I previously installed the free VMWare Server 1.0.3 on my old Ubuntu 6.06.1 server and I then installed Ubuntu 6.06.1 ("Ubuntu VM") as a guest OS/virtual machine. All went fine and I was able to get everything I wanted installed/configured in the virtual machine. Now, I got a new Windows 2K3 server. So I want to move the existing "Ubuntu VM" virtual machine to a NEW server (Windows 2K3 host). I copied the entire "Ubuntu VM" folder from the old Ubuntu server to the new Windows 2k3 server. I launch VMWare Server and try to open the virtual machine, I get this error:

    "[b]The disk c:\virtual machines\ubuntu_dapper_lamp_server\Ubuntu_Dapper_Lamp_Server.vmdk has one or more internal errors that cannot be fixed. The only option is to restore from a backup copy of this disk.

    Cannot open the disk 'c:\virtual machines\ubuntu_dapper_lamp_server\Ubuntu_Dapper_Lamp_Server.vmdk' or one of the snapshot disks it depends on.

    Reason: The specified virtual disk needs repair.[/b]"

    I tested and the "Ubuntu VM" runs just fine on the old Ubuntu 6.06.1 server. Is it possible to move virtual machines from a Linux host to a Windows host? Is there something I need to do to "fix" the virtual machine's .vmdk files?

    If anyone out there can help, I would greatly appreciate it!

    Cheers,

    -Brad

    DB:3.42:Error When Moving Virtual Machine From Linux Host To Windows 2k3 Host az


    SSH is a very smart way of transfering files between Linux and Windows.I do that frequently.

    If you however had any snapshot taken and you think you dont need the snapshot,Removing the snapshot might be a shortcut solution.

    go to snapshotsRemove Snapshot

    if and only if the snapshot is of no iportance to you at this point.

    1. How to config virtual host in weblogic server?
    2. Is Policy files needed for weblogic cluster?

    DB:3.41:Virtual Host &Amp; Policy Files 8c

    1. Virtual host is a new feature in WLAS6.0. It is not in WLAS451 510
    2. Every instance in WLAS cluster needs policy file. However, you can use
    share disk and config a global policy file so that every instance can access
    it. Personally, I prefer every instance accesses its own disk

    Hope it helps.
