PowerNSX で NSX Edge の構成情報を修正してみる。

Image
NSX Edge をデプロイする時に クラスタ / リソースプールを指定しますが、デプロイ後に VM(仮想アプライアンス)の配置を変更すると、構成情報と実機での状態がずれて表示されてしまいます。たとえば、デプロイ時には下記の状態であったとします。infra-nsxesg-01 という NSX Edge が、infra-cluster-01 クラスタにデプロイされています。「ホストおよびクラスタ」のインベントリでは下記の配置です。infra-nsxesg-01 の VM は、infra-cluster-01 クラスタ直下に配置されています。ここで vSphere Web Client から、NSX Edge の VM を別のリソースプールに移動してみます。infra-nsxesg-01 の VM は、rp-01-infra というリソースプールに移動されました。そうすと、NSX 側ではズレが生じます。これは 再デプロイや REST API で修正することができますが、今回は自宅ラボなので、PowerNSX の Set-NsxEdge コマンドで修正してみます。まず、PowerNSX で NSX Manager と vCenter に接続します。※今回の vCenter は infra-vc-01.go-lab.jp です。PowerNSX> Connect-NsxServer -vCenterServer infra-vc-01.go-lab.jpリソースプールの ID を確認しておきます。VM を配置しているリソースプールは下記です。PowerNSX> Get-ResourcePool -Name rp-01-infra | select Name,{$_.ExtensionData.MoRef.Value}Name        $_.ExtensionData.MoRef.Value----        ----------------------------rp-01-infra resgroup-61NSX Edge の構成を確認しておきます。PowerNSX> $edge = Get-NsxEdge -Name infra-nsxesg-01PowerNSX> $edge.appliances.appliance.configu…

vSphere Deployment is a 6 part series that will walk you through deploying and configuring the components of vSphere 6.5.Part 1:vSphere Deployment: Deploying ESXi 6.5 to a Host
Part 2:vSphere Deployment: Deploying the vCenter Server Appliance 6.5
Part 3:vSphere Deployment: Configuring an HA Cluster in vCenter 6.5
Part 4: vSphere Deployment: Configuring Traditional Storage in vCenter 6.5
Part 5: vSphere Deployment: Configuring a Datastore Cluster in vCenter 6.5
Part 6: vSphere Deployment: Configuring vSphere Update Manager (VUM) in vCenter 6.5vSphere HA clusters allow ESXi hosts to work together as a group and provide performance assurance and higher levels of availability for hosted virtual machines. Before we get into building vSphere HA clusters, let's go over how vSphere HA works. vSphere HA provides high availability for virtual machines by pooling the virtual machines and the hosts they reside on into a cluster of ESXi hosts. Hosts in the cluster are actively monitored through a n…

Navigating Dangerous Waters: the Maritime Industry’s New Cybersecurity Threat as Technology Innovation Grows

Image
The rapid evolution of technology and, in particular, the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is transforming critical environments, bringing benefits such as optimised processes, reduced costs and energy efficiencies. The maritime industry, which forms part of our critical infrastructure, is adapting to access many of the benefits that innovation in technology can offer. By the end of the decade, for example, a new era of shipping will have started with the world's first autonomous container ship transporting goods around the coastline of Norway.Although such advances are to be applauded, they bring with them a high element of risk. Security researchers have been warning for many years that the shipping industry is a 'low hanging fruit', due to the fact that high-value goods are transported by ships with legacy systems and poor cybersecurity practices to safeguard from malicious attacks. This is leaving vessels at risk of a wide range of threats from live location tracki…

Image
If you've been excited about Fortnite's new four-player practice mode, you're in luck. It looks as if Epic brought Playgrounds online Monday evening after a short delay due to technical issues.Success! All players can now join in on the fun in the Playground LTM. Drop in and let your imagination run wild.

More details: https://t.co/nSpL6uQDwl — Fortnite (@FortniteGame) July 3, 2018Epic Games also took to Reddit to explain a little more, promising to release an in-depth, detailed postmortem to let its players know about the obstacles it encountered when it initially enabled the limited time mode. The post reminds players to change their region back to "auto select" and to keep trying to join the queue if at first they don't succeed. There are likely lots of people trying to get in at the same time.Playground is basically an instance of the Fortnite map that will host up to four players at a time. You'll get an hour to practice all your building and tacti…

That 'Fortnite' cheating app is probably hiding malware

Image
Malware writers and scammers love to exploit demand for popular games to ensnare unwitting victims, and that's truer than ever for a near-ubiquitous game like Fortnite. Rainway has discovered malicious Windows adware hiding in a cheat that promised both an aimbot and free in-game V-Bucks. Install it and it immediately alters Windows to serve its own rogue ads, creating a man-in-the-middle attack (with Rainway as an unwitting participant) by loading its own root certificate and routing all internet traffic through a proxy.Rainway said it had largely thwarted the attack by having the adware's host remove the offending file, and remove the creators from at least one ad platform. Unfortunately, that may have come too late for some people. The file host recorded 78,000 downloads, and Rainway received 381,000 reports. A significant number of Fortnite players took the bait, then.This isn't the only malware using Fortnite as a ploy. We've seen numerous instances of at…
