    VMmark ERROR and config help

    jefcisco Lurker

      Hi,

       

      Looking for some help or guidance as to why I continue to see this error. My DeployVM field has these type of entries --> AuctionAppA0: 10.x.x.x then the 18 other ones. I'm assuming the issue is with my VMmark3.properties config file, but not sure at this point.

       

      ERROR:

       

      2019-04-29T07:16:00.689 [pool-3-thread-20] ERROR COMM : Error Ip not found for AuctionAppA0 : Ip null : Try increasing ProvisionPingIpSeconds in VMmark3.properties : Continuing

      Any help is much appreciated

          I've increased ProvisionPingIpSeconds from 600 to 1200 and still the same error.

           

          Here is the message sent to me via email:

            Hi jefcisco

             

            I'd like to see your VMmark3.properties and the contents of the provisioning-output directory.
            Here are the commands to run on your PrimeClient VM to grab both:

             

            cd /root/VMmark3/

            zip -r provision_jefcisco.zip VMmark3.properties provisioning-output/

             

            Please reply to this message and attach the corresponding .zip file.

             

            Thanks,

            David

              jefcisco Thanks for sending the requested .zip (also attached in this reply).

               

              Your PrimeClient has an IP of 10.199.135.11 with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0.  The VMmark3 benchmark harness created Client0, as shown from the log file below, powered it on, but could not ping it:

              This means you will need to do some troubleshooting from your PrimeClient and/or vCenter to figure out why your PrimeClient can't ping Client0.  Some possibilities/things to check:

              • Is 'VM Network' is the right NetworkLabel? If not, uncomment and change the line in your VMmark3.properties file that reads "ProvisioningNetworkLabel = VM Network"
              • Are you using a standard vSwitch (default)?  If not (a distributed vSwitch), uncomment and change the line in your VMmark3.properties file that reads "ProvisioningNetworkType = standard" to "dvswitch".
              • Double check your other network settings for accuracy, namely:
                // String ProvisioningIPstaticStart : First IP address to use. Valid ranges are 1-245
                ProvisioningIPstaticStart = 10.199.135.31
                // String ProvisioningGateway : Gateway to use for static VM provisioning : Default 192.168.1.253
                ProvisioningGateway = 10.199.135.1
                // String ProvisioningSubnetMask : Subnet mask to use for static VM provisioning : Default 255.255.252.0
                ProvisioningSubnetMask = 255.255.255.0

              Long story short, in order for provisioning to succeed, you'll need to be able to ping client0 from your PrimeClient VM, and you can't right now.

               

              Here is what you're likely seeing ("bad" case):

              [root@primeclient ~]# ping 10.199.135.31

              PING 10.199.135.31 (10.199.135.31) 56(84) bytes of data.

              From 10.199.135.11 icmp_seq=11 Destination Host Unreachable

               

              Here is what you need to see ("good" case):

              [root@primeclient ~]# ping 10.199.135.31

              PING 10.199.135.31 (10.199.135.31) 56(84) bytes of data.

              Please let me know how it goes.

                Just to update / close out this thread: I heard back from jefcisco privately, and confirmed he was able to successfully deploy 1 tile (tile0):

                 

                Hi David,

                 

                Thanks for following up. Sorry been extremely busy with multiple projects.

                 

                The issue was a two pronged problem

                 

                1. Incorrect Network Label in the VMMark3.properties file
                2. The ESXi server client server had an incorrect Network adapter config

                 

                So I corrected both things and the “java -jar” command succeeded finally. Also just checked the DS3DB0 database creation and saw this which is a good sign.

                 

                [root@DS3DB0 ~]# tail -f /ds3/VMmark3-DS3installoutput.txt
