NetApp Virtual Storage Console图标在vSphere Web Client中消失

NetApp发布了Virtual Storage Console (VSC) 6.1 对应 vCenter 6.0。这个产品现在只支持vSphere Web Client了。我在实验环境下做了一些测试,遇到一个非常特殊的案例。



[do_widget "Language Switcher" wrap=aside title=false]

我假想需要给存储组的工作人员VSC完全权限,但是要限制他们的vCenter、esxi主机、虚拟主机等的权限。VSC在安装后连接vCenter时候会自动创建预设的几个角色。我注意到有个角色叫“VSC Administrator”。所以我就在某个esxi集群上给一个测试账号赋予了该角色。但是用该账号登陆后Web Client的主页上没有出现VSC的图标。该测试账号在设定的esxi集群上可以正常进行数据备份或恢复。最终我发现需要在vCenter这一级赋予账号或组同样的角色并且取消继承到子项可解决此问题。

Connect-NsxtServer shows "Unable to connect to the remote server"

When you run Connect-NsxtServer in the PowerCLI, it may show "Unable to connect to the remote server".  Because the error message is a little bit confusing with other login issues. It's not easy to troubleshoot. The actual reason is the NSX-T uses a self-signed certificate, and the PowerCLI cannot accept the certificate automatically. The fix is super easy. You need to set the PowerCLI to ignore the invalid certificate with the following command: Set-PowerCLIConfiguration -Scope User -InvalidCertificateAction:Ignore -Confirm:$false

Setup Terraform and Ansible for Windows provisionon CentOS

Provisioning Windows machines with Terraform is easy. Configuring Windows machines with Ansible is also not complex. However, it's a little bit challenging to combine them. The following steps are some ideas about handling a Windows machine from provisioning to post configuration without modifying the winrm configuration on the guest operating system. Install required repos for yum. yum -y install https://repo.ius.io/ius-release-el7.rpm yum -y install https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/epel-release-latest-7.noarch.rpm yum -y install https://packages.endpointdev.com/rhel/7/os/x86_64/endpoint-repo.x86_64.rpm yum -y install epel-release yum -y install yum-utils yum-config-manager --add-repo https://rpm.releases.hashicorp.com/RHEL/hashicorp.repo Install  Terraform . sudo yum -y install terraform Install  Ansible . sudo yum -y install ansible Install  Kerberos . yum -y install gcc python-devel krb5-devel krb5-libs krb5-workstation

How to List All Users in Terraform Cloud

Terraform has a rich API. However, the API documentation does not mention how to list all users. We can leverage the organization membership API and the PowerShell command  Invoke-RestMethod  to get a user list. 1. Create an organization token in Terraform Cloud. 2. Create the token variable ( $Token ) in PowerShell. $Token = "abcde" 3. Create the API parameters variable in PowerShell. $params = @{ Uri = "https://app.terraform.io/api/v2/organizations/ZHENGWU/organization-memberships?page%5Bsize%5D=100" Authentication = "Bearer" Token = $Token ContentType = "application/vnd.api+json" } Note: You need to replace ZHENGWU with your own organization name. And I used 100 at the end of the URI to retrieve the first 100 users. It can be any number.  4. Retrieve the API return and list the user's email address. $Test = Invoke-RestMethod @params $Test.data.attributes.email
