Just a network guy pretending to know how to code.

comment ESXi host losing connection to vCenter
Yep seemed to. Haven't had any issues since then. Rock solid. It was my own fault for not doing it sooner.

Just an update: That fixed the issue. The random network crashes have stopped.

I think I'm going to run all updates then check back and see if that fixes it. I see that PR1012837 seems to address something along these lines with networking disconnecting. I'll do that later today and if I still have issues pull logs and check back. Thanks @ewwhite

comment ESXi host losing connection to vCenter
I've had this setup running for almost 7 months now. I just verified that port was allowed. Granted this is not only my home production but also my home lab so it's in an ever changing state but it runs perfectly. This issue has been over the last few weeks. Which log would point me to a firewall issue? I was attempting to get smtp working by creating an smtp.xml file but that was removed and the sytem back to normal. Plus all actions done on 1 host have been done on both and host 1 is stable.

comment ESXi host losing connection to vCenter
On the vCenter server there is a single nic connected directly to the switch. The 4 nics are all active using IP Hash and the 4 physical ports on the switch are in a static trunk group. There are 2 vss's. The first has 2 vmkernels, 1 for vmotion ( vlan 5) One for management ( vlan 1 ) , it also has 3 port groups. Outside ( vlan 2), DMZ ( vlan 3 ) , and vm network (vlan 1). The second vswitch has 2 vmkernel ports both iscsi. Multipath iSCSI as per vMware instructions.

comment Encrypting all incoming mail with public pgp key per user
I decided to go with gpg-mailgate ( code.google.com/p/gpg-mailgate ). I currently have this up and functioning except for the fact that it only works with plain text email. Everything else I get headers and thats it. Will post more info when/if I figure out what is going on.

comment Trouble creating VDI's in xenserver
That is the exact walkthrough I used. Actually to tie this thread up. Long story short I spent hours trying to get xentools working under OF 2.99. No luck. Finally gave up. Frankly at this point I don't think 2.99 is ready for use under xen. Multiple dependency issues with conary, rpms' that install but still no PV. Maybe they will release an actual appliance in the next version.

comment Installing Xentools on Openfiler 2.99.
Update. I got the lib's installed but I'm still not seeing it recognizing xentools. No errors.
