sorry if this might be a complete beginner question.
My first vSphere cluster did go live last week and everything is running smooth so far.
Today i noticed a lot of those logs on all the hosts. Can't figure out what this means and couldn't find much info on the net either.
User email@example.com logged in as VMware-client/6.5.0
User firstname.lastname@example.org logged in as pyvmomi
I would greatly appreciate your advice.
Hardware is brandnew DellEMC (in case iDrac might be involed in this).
SSH and console are disabled on the hosts.
This may be because of some automation using vmware API probably vim-cmd, which can generate login and logout events.
You can create your own remote C++ or pyVmomi VIM APi client that keeps the SOAP session cookie across invocations.
thx a lot for your fast reply!
Indeed, the logs indicate "vim.event.UserLoginSessionEvent".
I'll do some researches on this. Any advice on where to find those automated jobs, crontab perhaps?
Hey, hope you are doing fine
DCUI@127.0.0.1 indicates that there is a local log in from console. The other two are services executed from that session.
(DCUI is the Direct Console User Interface --> the yellow and black interface you look when directly connected to the host)
Most likely it is a monitoring tool.
What you can do is enable lockdown mode strict and see if errors stop. Keep in mind that you will loose console access to that host as long as lockdown mode is enabled.
