VMware Tanzu certifications

VMware Tanzu certifications

Containers, kubernetes and Tanzu topic is still pretty fresh in terms of VMware certification. Therefore there is no complete certification path that would include entry,…

vRSLCM deployment is not available

During one of the recent VCF 3.9.1 deployments I’ve found interesting challenge while trying to deploy vRealize Suite components. Initially integrated with MyVMware and downloaded a vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager version 2.1 (the only one avaialble to download).

Cloud builder 4.2 – 502 bad gateway

Cloud builder 4.2 – 502 bad gateway

Cloud Builder in VCF 4.2 has enhanced password requirements. Thus if you deploy the appliance with a password which doesn’t match those requirements it’s going to be deployed with an error, making it unusable. While trying to access the GUI you will get “502 Bad Gateway” which is not so meaningful. Trying to access SSH will fail as well. However, accessing the direct console gives a clear information about the problem. Based on that there is nothing left than redeploying…

VCDX BoM

VCDX BoM

As part of my VCDX preparation I’ve read lots of books, blogs and other documents to expand the knowledge and fill the gaps. That was partially one of the most valuable parts of the journey where I learned a lot. Without that I wouldn’t probably even read half of those great books. I can’t say this is something that every candidate must read, but I decided to share this list as a VCDX BoM as I found it valuable for…

However, due to other tasks, engagements, etc. I just managed to complete it right now! So first things first – finally, after a very long and extremely informative journey at 15 Dec 2020, I finally received probably the best e-mail ever. Hi Pawel, Congratulations! You passed!…

General vSAN Error

General vSAN Error

vSAN is a wonderful shared storage option in a vSphere cluster, but it requires an administrator with deep product knowledge and overall awareness to be able to manage it with an understanding of its quirks and gotchas. I’ve worked with several vSAN clusters composed of many nodes for a few years now but sometimes it still surprises me. I’ve recently spent a couple of hours troubleshooting a “General vSAN Error” to figure out why I couldn’t put a host in…
