Build new vxrail failed with error Registering ESXi hosts with the vCenter Server

Build new vxrail failed with error Registering ESXi hosts with the vCenter Server, this happen during initial build new cluster node with external vcenter and dual DNS server.

During initial, normally vcenter will checking hostname to their DNS server. In this case, example: vcenter registered in the DNS 1.1.1.1 and new cluster node vxrail hostname registered at DNS 2.2.2.2.

previously at DNS 2.2.2.2 has been setup forwarder to DNS 1.1.1.1 and from vxrail manager can ping external vcenter hostname.

After we got error ” Registering ESXi Hosts with the vCenter Server”, i just checking to vcenter with ssh, and testing to ping new vxrail hostname, and result is: vxrail esxi hostname cannot ping from vCenter. so we checking why vcenter cannot ping new hostname vxrail node. i found In here, we missed step to setup DNS forwarder at DNS 1.1.1.1 ( vcenter used this DNS ) :).

i found solution with use or setup dns forwarder at second dns server 1.1.1.1 that used by the VCENTER  :), after setting DNS forwarder, just testing again from vcenter to ping vxrail hostname, the result is, vxrail hostname can ping 😀 and initial new node with environment 2 DNS + external vCenter has done

Regarding how to setting DNS forwarding, you may googling that 🙂

If you need help regarding how to build or initial setup vxrail HCI from DellEMC, you may contact me by email to cecep.esa[@]gmail.com, thank you

Review Lens Yongnuo YN 50mm F1.4

Review Lens Yongnuo YN 50mm F1.4, Lensa Prime murah meriah dari produsen Yongnuo. Sebenarnya Yongnuo terkenal dengan produsen untuk flash light camera, namun saat ini mereka mulai mencoba untuk membuat lensa.

Sebeleumnya saya ingin melengkapi jajaran lensa, saat ini sudah memiliki Canon lens 18-135mm dan wide lens Tokina 11-20mm. Setelah beberapa waktu hunting dan cari-cari riview prime lens, akhirnya pilihan jatuh ke Yongnuo YN 50mm f1.4.

Selain harganya murah, setelah membaca-baca review, lens Yongnuo ini cukup bagus juga, namun ada sedikit kekurangan, yaitu motor nya berisik waktu menggunakan Auto Focus :), namun berisik tersebut bisa di akali jika menggunakan Manual Focus

Over all, hasil Photo-nya lumayan lah untuk saya yang masih amatir, berikut penampakannya:

Embrio Transfer | ET | FET

Embrio transfer ( ET ) adalah proses dimana indung telur dan sperma yang sudah disatukan di “luar” rahim, akan dimasukan kembali kedalam rahim wanita. Ini merupakan satu proses dalam siklus satu kali Bayi Tabung atau IVF.

Aamiiin ya alloh..

Pengalaman dengan Batik Air lion group

Pengalaman pertama terbang menggunakan Batik Air dari lion group, kesannya cukup nyaman.

Saya terbang dari Batam menuju Jakarta Sukarno Hatta air port, jadwal boarding dan terbang tidak ada delay, malah boarding aga cepat dari jadwal. Oh iya, kebetulan ambil jadwal malam dari sana.

Mungkin ini “setara” penerbangan Garuda. Dan memang Batik Air ini sengaja di buat oleh rusdi kirana untuk kelas “mahalnya” lion group, tiket nya pun cukup mahal dibanding dengan wings or lion air sendiri.

Menggunakan jenis pesawat keluaran baru dari airbus, di dalam ada sarana entertainment nya juga. Namun anda harus bawa handset sendiri ya :). Selain itu mayan lah dapet snack buat ganjal perut.
