How to create an NSX CLI user, API user & set up NSX Plugin for vROps

TL-DR: See below for details on these commands

Create a local user in the NSX Manager’s CLI, then use the API to grant CLI privileges to that user.

Here’s how using a linux machine:
ssh admin@[nsxmanagerIP]
user vrops-readonly password plaintext notrealpassword
user vrops-readonly privilege web-interface

Log out of the NSX Manager (type exit) and stay logged into the linux machine.
Create cli-auditor.xml that contains this (replace brackets with greater/less than):
[?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1" ?]
[accessControlEntry]
[role]auditor[/role]
[resource]
[resourceId]globalroot-0[/resourceId]
[/resource]
[/accessControlEntry]

Add the user as an auditor in the NSX Manager as a CLI user:
curl -i -k -u 'admin:password' -H "Content-Type: application/xml" -X POST --data "@cli-auditor.xml" https://nsxmanagerip/api/2.0/services/usermgmt/role/vrops-readonly?isCli=true
Add your domain/vCenter user as an auditor in the NSX Manager (NOT as a CLI user):
curl -i -k -u 'admin:password' -H "Content-Type: application/xml" -X POST --data "@cli-auditor.xml" https://nsxmanagerip/api/2.0/services/usermgmt/role/ReadOnly@THEPHUCK.COM?isCli=false

Here’s the error

While building a new environment for my lab, I ran across an interesting thing yesterday.

I looked at my cluster’s VSAN health and saw this error:

It’s complaining that my hosts don’t have matching Virtual SAN advanced configuration items.

If you click on that error, you’ll see at the bottom where it shows comparisons of hosts and the advanced configurations:

It shows VSAN.DomMaxLeafAssocsPerHost and VSAN.DomOwnerInflightOps as being different between a few of my hosts. Looking at the image above, you’ll see node 09 has values of 36000 and 1024, respectively, while the other nodes 10-12 show 12000 and 0.

I immediately went to the host configuration advanced settings in the web client, searched VSAN and don’t see either of those. I even checked through PowerCLI and can’t see those: Read the rest of this entry »
