    help with health scripts running using vima

    puzzledtux Hot Shot

       

      I am trying to use the health script which is located at http://communities.vmware.com/docs/DOC-9420

       

       

      Using health script version 0.9.4

      VIMA 1.0

       

       

      The below command runs perfectly for a ESX host and gives me a detailed html report

      ./vmwareHealthCheck.pl --server esx_server_ip --username esx_username --type host

       

       

      However, when I run

      ./vmwareHealthCheck.pl --server vCenter_IP --username administrator --type vcenter

      I get the error

       

       

       

      No clusters found.

       

       

       

       

       

      Does that mean that I need to create a cluster and then add hosts within it or I am missing something in the command syntax? All I need is a way to get report of all esx hosts which are being managed by my vCenter server.

       

       

      Also, is there a script available which lists

      1. the virtual machines that are part of DRS/HA enabled cluster

      2. orphaned virtual machines in a vCenter.

          A requirement for the script when passing the vCenter param is a single cluster, if you create a cluster object then the script will work.

           

           

           

          1) I don't know of one, but its not too hard to write your own

          2) Take a look at this script I wrote that removes Orphaned VM(s) you can modify to just print out the orphans

           

           

          #!/usr/bin/perl -w

           

          use strict;

          use warnings;

          use VMware::VILib;

          use VMware::VIRuntime;

           

          Opts::parse();

          Opts::validate();

          Util::connect();

           

          my ($hosts, $host);

           

          $hosts = Vim::find_entity_views(view_type => 'HostSystem');

           

          unless (defined $hosts){

                  die "No hosts found.\n";

          }

           

          foreach $host(@{$hosts}) {

                  print "Searching Host: ", $host->name,"\n";

                  my $vm_views = Vim::get_views(mo_ref_array => $host->vm, properties => \['summary.config.name','summary.runtime.connectionState'\]);

                  foreach(sort {$a->{'summary.config.name'} cmp $b->{'summary.config.name'}} @$vm_views) {

                          if($_->{'summary.runtime.connectionState'}->val eq 'orphaned') {

                                  print "\t",$_->{'summary.config.name'}, " is ", $_->{'summary.runtime.connectionState'}->val,"\n";

                          }

                  }

          }

          Util::disconnect();

            Thanks for the very quick update! So there is no way I can run this script connecting to a VC server which has 2 esx hosts which are not under a cluster?

             

             

            Btw this script is just superb!! thanks again for this one.

              Nope, please create a cluster.
