vCenter Configuration Manager login fails with error: Your ID has either not been created in VCM, or you have no current VCM roles

Symptoms

vCenter Configuration Manager Console login page appears but when the Login button is clicked you receive this error message:
Your ID has either not been created in VCM, or you have no current VCM roles.
Error Message:
Unknown Error

Resolution

This issue occurs if the advanced SQL configuration option Ole Automation Procedures is disabled.

The VCM console relies heavily on  SQL servers ability to create automation objects. To resolve this issue, run these statements in SSMS:
sp_configure ‘show advanced options’, 1
GO
RECONFIGURE;
GO
sp_configure ‘Ole Automation Procedures’, 1
GO
RECONFIGURE;
GO
sp_configure ‘show advanced options’, 0
GO
RECONFIGURE;

Getting VMware Data Storages FreeSpace with percent as CSV file on VMware vSphere PowerCLI

If you need Data Storage free space of on your Vmware infrastructure (vSphere) as a Excel format ! Solution is here. I just need this information to follow my data growth in monthly or weekly. As you all know VMware does not provide this information like performans chart.

 

So just install VMware PowerCLI over here then write following script in a .ps1 file and save as getdatastorestatusascsv.ps1 via notepad or other text editor. Open Vmware PowerCLI on your desktop and  just run it wherever you saved. Like  “.getdatastorestatusascsv.ps1”

 

Do not forget determine csv file path, your Virtual Center IP address or DNS name, Username and Password for connect to Virtual Center in script.

example:

Connect-VIServer -server 192.168.1.1 -protocol https -user administrator -password Pwesd42#3

 

Script:

 

Connect-VIServer -server %VCServerIPorDNSName% -protocol https -user %USERNAME% -password %PASSWORD%
$file=”c:DataStoreStatus.csv”
$GetInfoDataSt = Get-Datastore | Sort-Object Name

$DataStorages = @()

foreach ($stores in $GetInfoDataSt )
{
$stor = “” | Select-Object Name, CapacityGB, UsedGB, FreeGB, PercentUse

$stor.Name = $stores.name
$stor.CapacityGB = [math]::Round($stores.CapacityMB/1024,2)
$stor.UsedGB = [math]::Round(($stores.CapacityMB – $stores.FreeSpaceMB)/1024,2)
$stor.FreeGB = $stor.CapacityGB – $stor.UsedGB
$stor.PercentUse = [math]::Round(100*$stores.FreeSpaceMB/$stores.CapacityMB,2)
$stor.PercentUse = 100 – $stor.PercentUse
$DataStorages += $stor
}

$DataStorages | Export-csv -Path $file

Symptoms

  • Performance charts for networking fail to work on ESX/ESXi 4.1 Update 1
  • You are using bnx2x driver version 1.54.1.v41

Resolution

To workaround this issue, use an asynchronous Broadcom driver, such as bnx2x-1.62.15.v41.2.
To download the driver, see the VMware Download Center.

Additional Information

This issue will be fixed in  ESX 4.1 Update 2 with a pre-installed driver.
