How do you change the password?

Nov 30, 2021

i can work on a script to do so, in short you can use
1. passwd to change the root password in the command line
2. run "/var/opt/apache-tomcat-8.5.4/bin/digest.sh -a md5 -h org.apache.catalina.realm.MessageDigestCredentialHandler NEW_PASSWORD" to get a hash.
3. put this hash into /var/opt/apache-tomcat-8.5.4/conf/tomcat-users.xml to replace the value of password.
4. reboot HCIBench.

which ver of vcenter/esxi you are testing?

Nov 16, 2021

Both HCIBench 2.5.3 and 2.6.1 must turn this option off for the verification configuration to succeed.

Nov 16, 2021

Verify that the configuration is successful by turning off the following options.

"Specify Hosts to Deploy"

Thank you !

Nov 16, 2021

vCenter 6.7 17712750 and ESXi 6.7 17700523

Nov 30, 2021

Jason,

did you put any hosts and the credential while you checked "specify hosts to deploy"?

Nov 15, 2021

HCIBench 2.6.1,Failed to verify config.
But In the same configuration, HCIBench 2.4.0 can be verified.
why is that,please ?

Nov 13, 2021

hello,

in recent 2-3 versions (surely 2.53 and latest 2.61) i see in the Grafana dashboards datastore names like "datastore-2507-02" instead of a real datastore name like "vmware_datastore" as it is configured in the vCenter/ESXi hosts.

So in order to know which datastore it is (since i'm benchmarking usually 2-3 against each other) i have to keep records which datastore was which name in Grafana

can you please advise if this is a norm ?

Thank you

Kind regards,
-vlad

Nov 15, 2021

Vlad,

the grafana just pull whatever is passed from the vSAN health service, besides the change of HCIBench version, did you upgrade the vc or vsan to the newer version at the same time?

Nov 15, 2021

yes, we keep vc, vsan and esxi always up-to date (so right now we are on 7.03ub and so on...). we test both vsan, san and nas devices - they all get the wierd names like "datastore-2507-8" etc instead of the names that are visible in vcenter.
datastore names show up in vcenter correctly, for what its worth.

Nov 15, 2021

cuz for grafana or telegraf was not changed, so i believe thats due to the change of the vsan perf service.

Nov 15, 2021

Even for non-vsan datastores (like SAN/NAS) ?
