vmware vsphere and symantec endpoint / webserver port conflict

Posted: November 16th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: it, networking, virtualization, windows | Tags: , , , | No Comments »

got an customers w2k8 r2 mgmt machine with symantec endpoint and vmware vsphere. the problem: after installing the endpoint product under vmware vsphere the performance graphs for the vm’s don`t apear and the client crashes immediately(detail: the vmware webservice services crash and cannot restart successfully). cause: both software product got webservers on board, that means port conflicts. the solution: the machine got two nics; one nic for mgmt net, one nic for a production net. i changed in the vmware tomcat config the localhost definitions to the mgmt ip because i saw that the endpoint used the other interface automatically. now the tomcat services for the vsphere installation run on a different interface and there are no more conflicts with the two webserver instances… the better solution is not to install two products with different webservers on one machine – especially under a windows server.

building a large scaled monitoring system for a customer with icinga 1.4.0 + pnp4nagios 0.6 (bulk mode with npcd), db logging. it will monitor very different stuff …. from servers to network, from esx(i) to linux machines, from firewalls to printers … good to see that all the needed software comes from the debian stable repositories (non-free). once again debian FTW !

need to sync every day about 1 million files from disk to network share. so far no problem, but the sync application eats up massive amounts of ram – in this case a problem because the ibm x3250 w2k3 32bit machine only got 4gb of ram.  32bit – disused. maybe a solution would be to use an os wich isn`t such a colossal turd…

M$ sql server debugging

got errors backing up transaction logs of a ms sql server 2008:

Task ‘Datenbank sichern’ (COMDB01\XXXXX))
Datenbanken:yp: Transaktionsprotokoll
Vorhandene anfügen
Fehler:(-1073548784) Fehler beim Ausführen der Abfrage ‘BACKUP LOG [xxxxxxxx] TO  DISK = N’F:\\Backup\\BWP…’: ‘Die BACKUP LOG-Anweisung ist unzulässig, wenn das Wiederherstellungsmodell EINFACH verwendet wird. Verwenden Sie BACKUP DATABASE, oder ändern Sie das Wiederherstellungsmodell mithilfe von ALTER DATABASE.
BACKUP LOG wird fehlerbedingt beendet.’. Mögliche Ursachen sind folgende: Probleme bei der Abfrage, nicht richtig festgelegte ResultSet-Eigenschaft, nicht richtig festgelegte Parameter oder nicht richtig hergestellte Verbindung.

simple solution:

just change the “wiederherstellunsmodell” for the corresponding databases with the gui from simple to full, run a full backup, then the problem should be solved. you can do all online.
