Re: Patch 9.02: VMware GRE Support gone ?????

Hi,

 

"Welcome in the world of HP Data Prototector Documentation, which in any case will be inconclusive and very much incomplete.

When you buy this software, you will definitly need to polish up your Trail-and-Error skills since you will need them a lot.

And if it doesn't work as described, or it isn't documented at all in the state-of-the-art cross-referencing PDF documents, just open a support case and maybe you will have your answer in a week or two."

 

 

You will need to install a Data Protector client on de vCenter Appliance, which is a SuSE Linux Server.

But since the only proper way to install de GRE Web Plugin (read: fairly documented) is by adding a component to your vCenter server, you will have to setup a complete Linux Installation server.

 

Unless this is documented otherwise or HP changed the way the plugin is installed on the vCenter server. (which I doubt)

 

Regards

Hi,

@Tinux, when you import the Vcenter you have to select an option "Advanced GRE Web Plug-in". It's no more a component you add the the Vcenter.

 

@Cleber Zorzi, the patch si to big to send it by mail (8MB). Normally you have to open a case to HP support to verify you have exactly the same issue and this patch is working for you.

Re: Patch 9.02: VMware GRE Support gone ?????

VMWare GRE plug in is not available for VSphere Client.  Its only available in web client. 

VCenter Server Appliance(VCSA on SUSE) is supported and procedure is same for VCenter and VCSA. 

Note: Enable firewall ports and provide IP/host names in host resolution files.

For Linux VM, recovery exports must be configures and NFS must be ON.

Re: Patch 9.02: VMware GRE Support gone ?????

I too am having the same issue when trying to add the VMware GRE agent to my vcenter server.  We have a VCSA, and when I right click on it in the DP gui, the Add components option is greyed out.  However, if I select a Windows bases serverI see the option for VMware Granular Recover Extension Agent and VMware Granular Recover Extension Agent Web plugin.  When I try to install it on the Windows server, it of course gives an error because vcenter server isn't running on there.  How do I get this installed when we are using a VCSA, do I have to set up a windows based vcenter server an ditch our appliance now in order to be able to do file level recoveries of a vm?

 

Our setup is:

Linux VM (Centos 6.7) cell manager running DP 9.04

vcenter server - Virtual Center Server Appliance version 6.0U1 (Suse)

--Backup Environment--
Data Protector 9.05

Cell Manager (CentOS 6.8)
Storeonce VSA - SR: 3.13.3-1612.1
Storeonce 5500 - SR: 3.14.1-1607.1
HPE MSL4048 Tape Library - Firmware 8.90

vcsa should be imported as vcenter client type. in Clients menu you can select it and in Login tab you have to check the "Advanced GRE Web Plug-in" - this should start gre agent on first of your mount proxy hosts that contacts the vcenter, which then will pull the plugin from cell server.
