Storage - SCSI Sense Code Dashboard Device Errors Not Populating

I am using version 1.1.3-1355360 to troubleshoot some severe storage issues for a customer. I am seeing a bunch of SCSI error codes / Sense key data related to the device (e.g. failed H:0x0 D:0x2 P:0x0 Valid sense data: 0x5 0x20 0x0). However, the new SCSI Sense Code dashboard does not display any.

Host-based codes are being displayed correctly in the dashboard.

I am seeing this on an upgrade from release 1.0.4.... more »

Reset admin password command line script

IMPORTANT: As of LI 2.x a reset script exists on the LI VA under /opt/vmware/bin. The script is called "li-reset-admin-passwd.sh" and is in the default path.

Changing the admin password should be done from the web UI. If all admin passwords are unknown then the password must be reset from the command line. The command line steps are outlined here: http://www.vmware.com/pdf/log-insight-10-install-admin-guide.pdf.

Add "Shut Down Log Insight" button

While it's nice to have a button to restart the Log Insight service, it might also be nice to also have a button to do a graceful shutdown and power off of the appliance in the GUI. Assuming role-based access is available (there is a post in this forum already about a "read-only" view), this capability could be selectively applied.

Help with Solaris 10 syslog

Has anyone had any luck with getting a Solaris 10 server to send syslog into LogInsight?

 

I've tried:

 

*.debug @IPADDRESS

 

and other variations in the /etc/syslog.conf

 

Then restarting or refreshing via:

 

svcadm refresh svc:/system/system-log:default

 

svcadm restart system/system-log

 

But nothing seems to work. Any thought/help would be great.

General Log Insight Q&A

Archive behavior

When LI zips up logs and kicks them out to an NFS mount, they're no longer searchable through LI, right? The NFS export is just for legal log retention compliance - not to add additional "second-tier but still searchable" storage?

 

Sorry if this has been asked before. Is there a way to search all questions that have been asked?

Cisco UCS Content Pack for Log Insight

Looking for assistance with getting this configured and working. The description of the content pack states it is easily configured, however, I have been unable to get it showing any data. Within UCS manager there are several options for syslog levels and the Facility to use and I am not sure which one to select. Would be nice if there was a config guide. Any suggestions?

How to delete all logs

I've had Log Insight 1.5 running for only a week. An update to my HP servers sent 26,000 logs per second and managed to fill 500GB of disk space that was supposed to last me a few months.

 

I would like to erase all my logs and start over but I don't want to redeploy an reconfigure Log Insight.

 

Should I just delete and recreate my disk? Whats the best procedure?

 

Thanks

General Log Insight Q&A

Hit The Ground Running With 2.0.0

For the longest time, I wanted to be able to put Log Insight to use. However, each customer I was working for had no need for it nor would they know what to do with it if they did. It was by extreme Providence that my current permanent position encourages me each day to push the envelope in our environment which contains NetApp ONTAP, Cisco UCS and of course VMware vSphere. The time finally came today - I had all the... more »
