  • Route RPKI validation April 1st, 2022
    RPKI is a security framework by which network owners can validate and secure the critical route updates or Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) announcements between public Internet networks. BGP is essentially the central nervous system of the Internet and one of its fundamental building blocks. The main function of BGP is to facilitate efficient routing between Autonomous Systems (AS), by building and maintaining the Internet routing table. The Internet routing table is effectively the navigation system of the Internet and without it, traffic would be unable to flow between its constituent networks. Unfortunately, routing equipment alone cannot distinguish between legitimate and malicious routing announcements,...
  • RIPE – Atlas Anchor February 17th, 2022
    We have become an even more integral part of the RIPE Atlas project by hosting an anchor, a device that allows for latency analysis of traffic between autonomous systems.https://atlas.ripe.net/probes/7073/RIPE Atlas anchors play an integral role in the RIPE Atlas network by acting both as enhanced RIPE Atlas probes with more measurement capacity, as well as regional measurement targets within the greater RIPE Atlas network. Anchors are able to perform many more measurements than a regular RIPE Atlas probe, and the large amount of data they collect is made available to everyone. In addition, anchors act as powerful targets that can...
  • MANRS June 20th, 2020
    GOLINE firmly believes in initiatives to protect networks, improve security and resilience of the global routing system. Therefore we decided to support the MANRS project and join as participants.Mutually Agreed Norms for Routing Security (MANRS) is a global initiative, supported by the Internet Society, that provides crucial fixes to reduce the most common routing threats. MANRS offers specific actions via four programs for Network Operators, Internet Exchange Points, CDN and Cloud Providers, and Equipment Vendors. Requirements for Participation Please read the full MANRS Actions document before applying. You can become a participant if you meet these requirements: You (or your company) support...

VMware: Controllo e rimozione VIB se si hanno problemi durante gli upgrade

Gianni Ricca VMware 22 June 2022

Durante un upgrade di VMware ESXi vengono segnalati errori con VIB non compatibili e che andrebbero rimossi.


Per ottenere un elenco dei VIBs installati si possono usare i seguenti comandi
esxcli software vib list
esxcli software vib list | grep Mel
esxcli software vib list | grep scsi-lpfc820
esxcli system module list | grep lpfc820
esxcli network nic get -n vmnic0

Per rimuovere un VIB
esxcli software vib remove -n vibname
dopo la rimozione è necessario riavviare ESXi per farglielo rimuovere completamente.

Il nome da rimuovere è dopo bootbank
esxcli software vib remove -n net-qlge
esxcli software vib remove -n dcism
esxcli software vib remove -n scsi-bfa

Note e risoluzioni del passato
Sui server Dell esxi05 ed esxi06 dopo averli aggiornati dalla 6.7 alla 7.0U2 ci siamo imbattuti nell'errore:
"There are conflicts from the patches selected for staging or remediation.
selected for staging or remediation.
Check the events for conflict details and possible resolution."

Dopo aver aperto un ticket con VMware abbiamo risolto rimuovendo il VIB "qedentv-ens"
esxcli software vib remove -n qedentv-ens
