MailCleaner 2017 "Jessie" Final on ESXi6

Postby FlorianB » Mon Oct 16, 2017 8:01 am

Hello,
Is someone else (than us) using ESXi6 could confirm MailCleaner can install and works normally ?

we are, however the vmdk we downloaded would not run. kept stating no permission to access the disk. we set chmod 777 of the vmdk inside esxi just in case and the same result happened.

when we tried using vmfstools to resize the drive it too, would not work.
we used the 'workstation' vmdk in the end which did work correctly.

if you created the vmdk with dd or some other *nix program it may explain these issues.

most appliances we import into vsphere nowadays are usually .ova's which are packaged as one file (vm metadata + vm disk)

Hmmm Oki !!!
Thanks for the report, so:
- The vmdk ESXi6 is not working for ESXi6 (or anything maybe)
- The vmdk for Workstation is working for ESXi6 ????!!! it should not as the blog post where i took command to generate the ESXi6 version was from a vmware post blog.

I think I'll redo all VMWare version only with ova (correct ova for each version).
Thank again.

Hello Florian,
(I am Yannick, one of your french Customer, with the grub that fail 2 days ago during upgrade ^^)

I tried the vmdk on esxi5.0 and 5.5 with no success.

So, i decided to do some check on this vmdk :
- Integrity of this file is OK.
- No error on scan

I tried to map the file direct with some VMware Tools : no luck.
Opening directly with 7-zip : no way ^^.

So i tried to convert the file with the vmkfstools . The job stop at 98% with an unexpected EOF .

When the vmdk was created, there are some snapshot remaining for the VM ?
Or a small flat file missing ?

At this time, i do the same with the Workstation vmdk, and it works.
Now, i start to write a procedure to create a logical raid from the existing vmdk.

Regards,
Yannick

Hi,

I'm new to MC.
Didn't know that OVA is experimental.
I have a brandnew ESXI 6.5 with latest patchlevel.
The OVA deployed without any issues.

What I did:
- New OVA-Rollout
After the Shell configuration and before logging the first time into Webbrowser i did the following into shell:
- /usr/mailcleaner/bin/resync_db.sh
- apt update && apt upgrade
- aptitude install -y open-vm-tools
- shutdown -r now
- cd && git clone https://github.com/MailCleaner/Updater4MCBeta.git && cd Updater4MCBeta && ./updater4mcbeta.sh
- shutdown -r now
- /usr/mailcleaner/bin/resync_db.sh
- echo 'show slave status\G' |/usr/mailcleaner/bin/mc_mysql -s mc_config

Are there any additional checks which I can perform?

Hello again,

I upgraded my VMware setup to esxi 6.5 . The result is the same with the esxi vmdk with a clear message :

Échec - Une erreur système générale s’est produite : Read beyond end of object

Hello,
I am having problems with the statistics of the slaves, I can not have the statistics of the slave, if I manually run ./collect_rrd_stats.pl this error appears:
Error encountered: no response from the remote host "x.x.x.x"

I check the slave.pl and everything is fine in the master and the slave, I get the result of the script when I select the option "q" and synchronize well.

Does anyone know how I can solve this?

Thanks and regards.

i managed to install the vm using the ova image. the vmdk on esxi still has an issue in v6.5 of vmware.

i had the following issue which i have not received a reply on in the other forum so i figured i'd link to it here.

Hello,
Yes forgot vmdk for now and use ova with Esxi6.5
If using 5.5 or 6, hack it to change vmx to correct value and change the checksum until someone here (if not myself) recreate all VMs.

Hi, any indication on when the new OVA / ESX 6 files will be ready? Me, and some other people (viewtopic.php?f=11&t=2505) would really like to get going with it (without having to hack our way in)...
