    Hallo Peter,
    Danke für die Bestellung. Habe sie gerade bearbeitet.

    Wegen dem NAS: Es gibt noch die Möglichkeite, auf den NAS einen weiteren SSH Server im “Debug-Mode” zu starten:

    /usr/sbin/sshd -Ddf /etc/config/ssh/sshd_config -p 2000

    Wenn du jetzt in OPMONis den SSH Port auf 2000 umstellst und einen Shutdown probierst, sollte zumindest auf dem NAS zu sehen sein, das OPMONis eine Verbindung aufbauen will.

    Bin schon gespannt, ob das weiter hilft.

    Sorry for my late answer.

    Most often this happens when the SSH service on the ESXi host is not enabled. By default, this service is disabled.

    This link should help how to enable SSH: https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/2004746

    Hallo Peter,

    OPMONis kann keinen SSH Login durchführen:

    Information: Failed SSH host shutdown.
    Configuration: SshProtocolConfiguration=(NameOrAddress=192.168.0.4,Port=’22’,Username=’admin’,Password=’********’)
    Exception: Renci.SshNet.Common.SshOperationTimeoutException: Session operation has timed out

    Die Fehlermeldung (operation has timed out) bedeutet das auf der IP Adresse 192.168.0.4 unter dem Port 22 kein SSH Server geantwortet hat.

    Bis Du sicher dass die IP Adresse richtig ist und der SSH Server des NAS auf Port 22 läuft?

    Hallo Peter,

    sorry bin etwas spät dran mit meiner Antwort:
    Wenn du als Systemtyp Linux auswählst, kannst du in OPMONis die SSH Befehle zum Herunterfahren eingeben.
    Also unter SSH Kommando: poweroff
    Login kann per Benutzernamen und Password erfolgen. Oder auch per SSH Key. OPMONis unterstützt beide Varianten.

    Ich hoffe meine kurze Antwort reicht. Falls nicht, dann melde dich bitte.

    Hallo Peter,

    das NAS sollte eigentlich per SSH steuerbar sein.
    Wenn Du dein NAS als Linux System in OPMONis einrichtest, kannst du die SSH Befehle zum Herunterfahren in OPMONis eingeben.

    Wenn Du mehr Unterstützung brauchst, melde dich bitte.

    Hi,

    can you please share this command?

    We will look into this and see if we can add a UPS “switch off” feature into our software.

    Thanks for your help

    Hi,
    this depends on your UPS.
    If your UPS can be managed by SSH you can configure it as Linux system and use the SSH command to power off the UPS.
    For USB connected UPS we can not trigger any command on the UPS as the vendors do not provide a public programming interface.

    Hi BR,

    for now you can only perform a complete shutdown of all systems.

    And thanks for your suggestion.

    We have some ideas how to add a test and monitoring function. One idea is to perform a periodic check if the credentials are still valid by doing a login to the system but not triggering a shutdown. But at the moment we do not have scheduled this for development.

    Sorry for being late with my answer:

    How do you test the shutdown of your systems?

    The mail is only send when OPMONis runs in automatic mode and the shutdown is triggered because the UPS has insufficient runtime.

    Hi Novacore,

    the email functionality is on top of our feature list and should be included in the next release. But right now I have no schedule for the next release.

    And sorry, I have no workaround for your.

    But the e-mail function is very often requested and I will try to push the development forward.

    in reply to: ‘Free ESXi Host’ shows ‘offline’ but is on #10039

    Hi Tim,

    if you have already configured your ESXi host to shutdown gracefully all running VMs and everything is fine for you, then it is enough to let OPMONis shutdown the ESXi host.

    If OPMONis triggers the shutdown of the VM on which it is running, you have to remove the checkbox “await execution”. So OPMONis will trigger the shutdown, but does not wait until the shutdown is complete. So if you shutdown your ESXi host, just remove the checkbox “await execution” and everything is fine.

    Hi Novacore,

    you have to activate the SSH shell on your ESXi host in order to get the free ESXi version working. This is because OPMONis is using SSH to access your ESXi host and manage the running VM instances.

    For your VMs: You can use Windows or (free) ESXi guest. If you use Windows, OPMONis will use WMI to shutdown the system. If your use (free) ESXi guest, OPMONis will use the ESXi host to manage the VM, which is the same way the vSphere (or Web) Client is managing the host or VM instance.

    According to the Socomec homepage the UPS supports the windows HID protocol and should be support by OPMONis without the need of installing any driver or special software.

    Best practice is to run OPMONis on a virtual machine and use ESXi USB passthrough to connect the UPS to the virtual machine.

    The shutdown procedure depends on your needs but best practice is:

    • Configure your ESXi hosts to automatically shutdown the running virtual machines.
    • Use OPMONis to shutdown your ESXi hosts.
      If you disable the “await executen” option OPMONis will only trigger the shutdown but not waiting until the shutdown is performed. The ESXi host will shutdown all VMs by itself (if configured correctly) including the VM OPMONis is running on.
      You should shutdown the ESXi host with the OPMONis VM last.
    • Optionally use OPMONis to shutdown some or all virtual machines. This gives you the benefit to control the shutdown order of your VMs in OPMONis.

    Hope this helps

    OPMONis is using SSH to control the free ESXi hypervisor. These SSH commands can not be changed for the moment.

    If you want to manage other devices using SSH you can select “Linux” as the device type. This allows you to edit the SSH command string executed to trigger the shutdown. (YES 🙂 ). There are placesholders for username and password so you do not have to enter these values in plain text into the SSH statement. But nevertheless the complete SSH statement is stored enrypted (like the passwords).

    Thanks for the tip about timeouts. We plan to add a timeout setting in the next version so you will be able to adjust the timeout for your needs.

    We will continue to impove our homepage and are really happy about any feedback. I will forward your request about more information especially about WMI and batteries.
