Driver for Cisco nenic 1.0.35.0 – Enabled Geneve Offload support

Cisco Virtual Interface Card Native Ethernet Driver 1.0.35.0 Enabled Geneve Offload support for VIC 14xx adapters.

Bugs Fixed (since nenic 1.0.29.0):

  • CSCvw37990: Set Tx queue count to 1 in all cases except Netq
  • CSCvw39021: Add tx_budget mod param to nenic
  • CSCvo36323: Fix the issue of spurious drop counts with VIC 13XX in standalone rack servers.
  • CSCvq26550: Fix added in the driver to notify the VIC Firmware about any WQ/RQ errors.

ESXi 7.0 and Mellanox ConnectX 2 – support fix patch

I upgraded vCenter to version 7 successfully but failed when it came to updating my hosts from 6.7 to 7.

I got some warning stating PCI devices were incompatible but tried anyways. Turns out that failed, my Mellanox ConnectX 2 wasn’t showing up as an available physical NIC.

At first It was necessary to have VID/DID device code for MT26448 [ConnectX EN 10GigE , PCIe 2.0 5GT/s].

Deprecated devices supported by VMKlinux drivers

Devices that were only supported in 6.7 or earlier by a VMKlinux inbox driver. These devices are no longer supported because all support for VMKlinux drivers and their devices have been completely removed in 7.0.

How to fix it? I tuned small script ESXi7-enable-nmlx4_co.v00.sh to DO IT. Notes:

RDMA support for RoCEv1

RoCEv1 is only supported, because:

  • Support for RoCEv2 is above card – Mellanox ConnectX-3 Pro
  • We can see RoCEv2 options in nmlx2_core driver, but when I enabled enable_rocev2 It is NOT working
[root@esxi~] esxcli system module parameters list -m nmlx4_core

log_num_mgm_entry_size  int          Log2 MGM entry size, that defines the number of QPs per MCG, for example: value 10 results in 248 QP per MGM entry

rocev2_udp_port         int          Destination port for RoCEv2

It is officialy NOT supported. Use it only in your HomeLAB. But We could save some money for new 10Gbps network cards.

FIX: The virtual machine is configured for too much PMEM. 6.0 TB main memory and x PMEM exceeds the maximum allowed 6.0 TB

VMware supports Intel Optane PMem with vSphere 6.7 and 7.0. VMware and Intel worked with SAP to complete the validation of SAP HANA with Optane PMem enabled VMs.

I configured PoC testing VM RAM 1 TB and 1 TB PMem. I was unable to power on. Error – The virtual machine is configured for too much PMem. 6.0 TB main memory and 1024 GB PMem exceeds the maximum allowed 6.0 TB.

Problem was with enable Memory Hot Plug, because there is a limit calculation:

With enable Memory Hot Plug
* Limit 6TB <= size of RAM x 16 + size of PMEM

With disable Memory Hot Plug
* Limit 6TB <= size of RAM + size of PMEM

SAP HANA does not support hot-add memory. Because of this, hot-add memory was not validated by SAP and VMware with SAP HANA and is therefore not supported. According SAP HANA on VMware vSphere

Example how to reproduce an error:

6 TB limit
1 TB PMem
5 * 1024 / 16 = 320 GB

With enable Memory Hot Plug I can't start VM with more than 321 GB RAM.

Devices deprecated and unsupported in ESXi 7.0 (77304)

Before upgrade to ESXi 7.0 is great to check KB 77304

Deprecated devices in ESXi 7.0 fall into three categories:

If you proceed with the upgrade on a host with any device described in first two categories, the following non-recoverable consequences can occur:

  • You may lose access to storage / data-stores
  • You may lose network access
  • You may lose previous configuration on the host

Deprecated devices supported by VMKlinux drivers

Devices that were only supported in 6.7 or earlier by a VMKlinux inbox driver. These devices are no longer supported because all support for VMKlinux drivers and their devices have been completely removed in 7.0.

Alert: ESXi Host Certificate Status

You typically generate new certificates only if you change the host name or accidentally delete the certificate. Under certain circumstances, you must force the host to generate new certificates.

Status of ESXi certificate

It is possible to check certificate with login to ESXi:

How to regenerate new ESXi certificate?

Login via ssh to ESXi in maintenance mode:

cd /etc/vmware/ssl
mv rui.crt orig.rui.crt
mv rui.key orig.rui.key

/sbin/generate-certificates

reboot

What to do next

Consider replacing the self-signed certificate and key with a trusted certificate and key.

ESXi Arm Edition fix /bin/netdbg does not work

Question is support for:

netdbg vswitch mac-learning …

I suppose, that Native MAC Learning is NOT important on ARM, but could be usefull in futute for SmartNICS. Testing is here:

vSphere Clustering Service (vCLS) Workaround for ESXi-Arm in vSphere 7.0 Update 1

The vSphere Clustering Service (vCLS) is a new capability that is introduced in the vSphere 7 Update 1 release. The issue is that the vCLS VMs are x86 and can not be deployed to an ESXi-Arm Cluster as the CPU architecture is not supported. But We could disable it according documentation:

Putting a Cluster in Retreat Mode

This task explains how to put a cluster in retreat mode.

Procedure

  • Login to the vSphere Client.
  • Navigate to the cluster on which vCLS must be disabled.
  • Copy the cluster domain ID from the URL of the browser. It should be similar to domain-c(number).
  • Navigate to the vCenter Server Configure tab.
  • Under Advanced Settings, click the Edit Settings button.
  • Add new key “config.vcls.clusters.domain-c841.enabled” use the domain ID copied in previous step.
  • For the cluster with the domain ID, set the Value to False.
Check new key “config.vcls.clusters.domain-c841.enabled” – Flase
  • Click Save.

ESXi on ARM

ESXi on ARM was released. Is it possible download from Flings ESXi Arm Edition.

Instalation Fling on Raspberry Pi 4

Preparation

Raspberry PI EEPROM update

Dowload Raspberry Pi OS from https://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/ and update EEPRON

sudo rpi-eeprom-update -a

Create and setup UEFI on SD card

md SDcard
7z.exe x firmware-master.zip firmware-master\boot\*
xcopy firmware-master\boot\* SDcard\*  /E /H /C /I /Y

del SDcard\kernel*.img

7z.exe x RPi4_UEFI_Firmware_v1.20.zip -oSDcard\* -y
  • For Raspberry PI 4GB only: Append the config.txt file on the SD Card and append gpu_mem=16:
  • Copy directory SDcard to root directory on SD card
  • Boot Raspberry Pi from SD card

UEFI firmware configuration

  • Disable 3GiB memory limit
    • Device Manager / Raspberry Pi Config / Advanced Config / Limit RAM to 3 GB
    • The Raspberry Pi 4 UEFI is configured with a default limit of 3GiB of memory for OS compatibility purposes. It is neccesary to disable it.
  • Console Preference Selection
    • Device Manager / Raspberry Pi Config / Device Manager / Console Prefence Selection / Display Configuration
      • Virtual 800×600 – enable it
      • Virtual 1024×768 – enable it

Install ESXi-Arm

  • Basic instalation ESXi
    • Enable ssh
    • Setup ntp – IMPORTANT make sure that host has clock synchronized
  • Add ESXi ARM host to vCenter
  • Enabling vMotion
  • Create a VM – example Ubuntu for ARM

Known issues

  • JUMBO frame MTU – The ESX driver for Pi4’s NIC on the SoC (genet) currently does not support jumbo frames.
  • Native MAC Learning is not supported ???
  • /bin/netdbg does not work – Could be fixed with
    • https://flings.vmware.com/esxi-arm-edition/bugs/1113

NSX-T on VDS

With NSXT 3.0, it is now possible to run NSXT directly on a VDS (the VDS version must be at least 7.0). Some usefull information are here:
