Updating esxi server
If that's the case, then run /sbin/create_certificates at the console and reboot the host.if you try to join your ESXi host to a v Center server and get the error: "The SSL Certificate of the remote host could not be validated" you'll want to ensure that the root CA that issued the certificate is trusted by the v Center host at the "Computer account" level and not just for "My user account".As of Free NAS 9.3.1 or greater you should be flashing to IT mode P20 (looks like it’s P21 now but it’s not available by every vendor yet). One of my colleagues discovered 8GB over-provisioning wasn’t even maxing out 10Gb network (remember, every write to VMware is a sync so it hits the ZIL no matter what) with 2 x 10Gb fiber lagged connections between VMware and Free NAS. I use 10.55.0.0/16 for my storage so you’d put 10.55.0.2 for the IP and 255.255.0.0 for the netmask.I strongly suggest pulling all drives before flashing. t=1758318Supermicro firmware: ftp://ftp.supermicro.com/Driver/SAS/LSI/2308/Firmware/IT/Instructions for flashing firmware:https://forums.freenas.org/index.php? threads/confirmation-please-lsi-9211-i8-flashing-to-p20.40373/LSI / Avago Firmware: you already have the card passed through to Free NAS via VT-d (steps 6-8) you can actually flash the card from Free NAS using the sas2flash utility using the steps below (in this example my card is already in IT mode so I’m just upgrading it): [[email protected]] # cd /root/ [[email protected]] # mkdir m1015 [[email protected]] # cd m1015/ [[email protected]] # wget # chmod x /usr/local/sbin/sas2flash [[email protected]] # sas2flash -o -f Firmware/HBA_9211_8i_IT/2118-b sasbios_rel/mptsas2LSI Corporation SAS2 Flash Utility Version .00 (20) Copyright (c) 2008-2013 LSI Corporation. This was on an HGST 840z so not sure if the same holds true for the Intel DC S3700… Some people are having trouble with an MTU of 9000.Updating the SSL Certificate for your host Should you change your host's hostname or domain after an install, the SSL certificate for the host will still be issued to localhost.localdomain.You can either regenerate a self-signed certificate for your ESXi host or replace the certificate from one generated by a certificate authority.
This is roughly based on Napp-It’s All-In-One design, except that it uses Free NAS instead of Omin OS.
Using the Console 1) Press (Customize System) 2) Select Configure Management Network 3) Select DNS Configuration 4) Select the option "Use the following DNS server addresse and hostname" 5) In the hostname enter the hostname and domain for your host. 6) Select Y (Yes) when prompted to save changes and restart the management network. Using the VI client 1) Go to Configuration tab and select DNS and Routing 2) Click on Properties to open the DNS and Routing Configuration screen 3) Enter the name and domain for your host and click OK. Note: both these methods will update /etc/hosts on the ESXi host.
Should you manually edit this file, it is important that you do not modify the line that consists of 127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain loclahost.
2) Generate a new private key with the command openssl genrsa 1024
A wizard will run and prompt you for information for the certificate request.
If you've using Linux, your host may already have the Open SSL package.
