Take offline one or more CloudBoot compute resources

by | Sep 12, 2021

Wondering how to take offline one or more CloudBoot compute resources? We can help you with this!

As part of our Server Virtualization Technologies and Services, we assist our customers with several OnApp queries.

Today, let us see how our support techs help our customers for taking offline CloudBoot compute resources.

 

Take offline one or more CloudBoot compute resources

 
By rebalancing or by degrading VDisks, we can take offline one or more CloudBoot compute resources.

Now let’s see the steps for rebalancing or degrading VDisks:
 

Rebalancing to make a compute resource offline

 

  1. Firstly, we need to make sure that all disks are not degraded.

2. Then go to Control Panel > Integrated Storage > Nodes.

3. From the loading page, we need to filter by compute resource.

4. Then select the first node and click the Identifier.

5. Select Show Disks and then select the required disk.

6. After that, we need to rebalance a disk onto another compute resource.

7. Finally repeat for all remaining disks on the nodes of this compute resource.
 

Degrading disks to make a compute resource offline

 

  1. Firstly, we need to make sure that all disks are not degraded.

2. Then we need to make sure that VDisks have sufficient redundancy. This includes datastore configuration have 2 replicas and more, and compute resource redundancy. The VDisks should not have more than 1 replica on the same compute resource.

3. Now we need to migrate all VSs from the first compute resource somewhere else on the cloud.

4. Then power off the compute resource. Also, make sure to perform the maintenance prior to PXE booting.

5. Then reboot empty compute resource.

6. To ensure all nodes are active, check the diagnostics page. Integrated Storage > Compute Zones > Diagnostics

7. Now we  should do a Repair All on the degraded VDisks:
 

Repair All on the degraded VDisks

 

  1. At first, click on the Integrated Storage menu.

2. Then the label of a data store shows the virtual disks in that store.

3. Then click the disk label.

4. From the screen that appears, select the Repair option next to the Consistency field. At a time we can repair only one VDisk.

5. The consistency value will be changed from “Degraded” to “Fully synced’’ if the disk is successfully repaired.

6. The disk will display a green icon again once the content has been re-balanced to indicate that all content is fully up to date.
