Notes, Tips & Tricks: VMWare

This is a notes page, extended with tips & tricks. This page is not really documentation, just stuff for me to remember. Sometimes things will get removed from these pages and turned into real documentation, sometimes not. You might find these notes to come in hand, maybe not. For me, it's just things I don't want to forget.

VMware voor Netware

NIC: AMD PCNET32 “Lance” NIC driver Ethernet0.virtualDev=“vlance” SCSI: Buslogic/LSI logic SCSI adapter driver

VMware tools: Klik op de “Install VMWare Tools” menu optie en geef het volgende commando: vmwtools:\setup.ncf

VMware voor Linux:

VMware tools: Dependencies: gcc/gcc++/(kernel-headers)

ON ESX, first mount the cdrom: OES3:/media # mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/ mount: block device /dev/cdrom is write-protected, mounting read-only

Zet de vm uit, en zet de cdrom op automatically connect as host device, as auto detect. mount /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom -o rm

Klik op de “Install VMWare Tools” menu optie en geef het volgende commando's:

cd /tmp
tar zxf /media/VMware\ Tools/vmware-linux-tools.tar.gz
cd /tmp/vmware-tools-distrib
./vmware-install.pl
Run tools: /usr/bin/vmware-toolbox

installeer alles in /usr/local/bin

Installatie SLES9 - dubbele schermen die moeilijk leesbaar zijn:

Open

vi /boot/grub/menu.lst

en verwijder “vga=0x332” uit de linux kernel load line

Discover new disk on linux

After you've added a new disk to linux you can discover it by issuing 'rescan-scsi-bus.sh' as root:

# rescan-scsi-bus.sh
Host adapter 0 (mptspi) found.
Scanning SCSI subsystem for new devices
Scanning host 0 channels 0 for  SCSI target IDs  0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7, all LUNs
Scanning for device 0 0 0 0 ...
OLD: Host: scsi0 Channel: 00 Id: 00 Lun: 00
      Vendor: VMware   Model: Virtual disk     Rev: 1.0
      Type:   Direct-Access                    ANSI SCSI revision: 02
Scanning for device 0 0 1 0 ...
OLD: Host: scsi0 Channel: 00 Id: 01 Lun: 00
      Vendor: VMware   Model: Virtual disk     Rev: 1.0
      Type:   Direct-Access                    ANSI SCSI revision: 02
Scanning for device 0 0 2 0 ...
NEW: Host: scsi0 Channel: 00 Id: 02 Lun: 00
      Vendor: VMware   Model: Virtual disk     Rev: 1.0
      Type:   Direct-Access                    ANSI SCSI revision: 02
0 new device(s) found.
0 device(s) removed.

It says 0 devices found but the new disk is still discovered and ready for partitioning.

Time Drifting op Linux guests:

Stap 1: NTP opzetten

Open ntp.conf en pas de volgende instellingen aan:

vi /etc/ntp.conf
server x.x.x.x prefer
tinker step 0

Stop, synchroniseer en start ntp:

/etc/init.d/ntpd stop
ntpdate x.x.x.x (herhalen tot verschil kleiner is dan 1 seconde)
/etc/init.d/ntpd start
ntpq -p (herhalen tot de reach op 377 staat)

Stap 2: clock=pit

vi /boot/grub/menu.lst Voeg “clock=pit” toe aan de linux kernel load line of vi /etc/lilo.conf Voeg “clock=pit” toe aan de “append=” line /sbin/lilo

Stap 3: Misc.TimerHardPeriod (op ESX)

Zet deze naar 333 of 250

Stap 4: tools.syncTime

Zet tijdssynchronisatie met de host aan via of de VMware tools of de *.vmx config file.

Optionele extra stappen:

Stap 5: noapic nolapic nosmp

vi /boot/grub/menu.lst Voeg “noapic nolapic nosmp” toe aan de linux kernel load line

Stap 6: NTP polling

vi /etc/ntp.conf server x.x.x.x prefer minpoll 4 maxpoll 6 (getal omzetten naar seconden is kwadrant, dus 4=16 seconden en 6=36 seconden)

EXTRA TIJDCOMMANDO'S:

Hardwareklok synchroniseren met de systeemklok:

hwclock --systohc

Hardwareklok bekijken:

hwclock --show

VMware algemeen:

Indien het bootscherm te snel gaat, F2 is de toets om in de BIOS/CMOS te komen.

VMware Server port forwarding

I needed to be able to authenticate through LDAP on a virtual from the production network. Of course, vmware server does not support reverse NAT, so I took my chances on port forwarding… and it worked: vmwareserverportforwarding.jpg
Don't forget to press restart and apply when you've added port forwards.

Force Removal of VMware Tools

To uninstall and re-install VMware Tools:

  • Right-click on the virtual machine.
  • Click Guest > Install/Upgrade VMware Tools.
  • Open a Console to the virtual machine and log into the guest operating system.
  • Click Start > Run, type cmd, and click OK to open a command prompt in Windows.
  • Change the drive to your CD-ROM drive (For example, D:\).
  • Type setup /c and press Enter to force removal of all registry entries and delete the old version of VMware Tools.
  • Open My Computer, double click the CD-ROM that contains VMware Tools.
  • After Auto-Run starts, follow the prompts to install.
