Following configuration is for an Intel Xeon E5-2637 and Intel X520 NICs.
The Script will disable VMQ on iSCSI and Livemigration and enable and configure VMQ on converged.
$adapterse = "Slot 3 Port 1","Slot 3 Port 2" #Enable VMQ on NICs with VMs or vNICs
Enable-NetAdapterVmq -Name $adapterse # Enable VMQ
$adaptersd = "Slot 1 Port 1","Slot 1 Port 2","NIC1","NIC2" #Disable VMQ on SAN NICs or Livemigration
Disable-NetAdapterVmq -Name $adaptersd # Disable VMQ
#Set VMQ Settings
Set-NetAdapterVmq -Name "Slot 3 Port 1" -BaseProcessorNumber 2 -MaxProcessors 1 -MaxProcessorNumber 2
Set-NetAdapterVmq -Name "Slot 3 Port 2" -BaseProcessorNumber 6 -MaxProcessors 1 -MaxProcessorNumber 6
Altaro published a great new eBook “Supercharging Hyper-V Performance”.
Here’s what you can expect from this eBook:
- A practical guide to finding and fixing issues in storage, CPU, memory, and network components
- Instructions on how to use Windows Performance Monitor and PAL to monitor your virtualized environment
- Advice on how to plan hosts, VMs, storage, networking and management for maximum performance.
You can download it here.
5nine Software Vice President Symon Perriman published a book with some cool best practices for configuration Windows Server Failover Clusters. 🙂
Greate stuff and great to read.
You can download it here.
as you know sometimes it is neccessary to get some more information about where and when roles within a cluster were successfully moved from one node to another.
One example could be Hyper-V Livemigrations or role movements from mixed role cluster servers.
When you have errors or warnings during rolemigrations, you can see the events directly within the failover cluster manager.
But what is if I want to see successfull role moves? Where do I find them?
Those messages are a bit hidden within the logfile structures of a Windows Server.
- Navigate to Applications and Services Logs\Microsoft\Windows\Failover Clustering\Operational
- There you can find several events dependig if you are on the role sender or receiver
Altaro is again featuring a new Webcast together with my friend Didier better known as Working Hard in IT. They will show you how to troubleshoot Microsoft Hyper-V 🙂 I would highly recommend the event to you.
If you’ve been in IT for any length of time, you’ve likely gotten that phone call that you never want to get: Everything is broken! It’s the end of the world! The sky is falling! Your Hyper-V Host or Cluster is broken and you are the person to fix it!
Where do you start?
What are the most common things to look for?
These are exactly some of the questions we’ll be covering in our next webinar, on February 25th, 2016 at 4pm CET / 10am EST!
Microsoft Cloud and Datacenter Management MVPs Didier Van Hoye and Andy Syrewicze will be answering these questions, and will also be sharing some tales from the trenches.
In this webinar you’ll learn Hyper-V troubleshooting basics and solutions to common problems. You’ll also see some Hyper-V oddities that were encountered by Didier and Andy and how these issues were ultimately resolved and with what tools.
It’s one thing to setup and run a virtualization solution. It’s another thing to fix it when it’s broken.
Sign up now to join us on February 25th, 2016 at 4pm CET / 10am EST (30-45mins + live Q&A!) for some tales from the trenches!
If you are interested to watch the cast, you only need to register on the Altaro website. <click here>
