    EDIT: I have no explanation for it but it is now working :)

    THANKYOU for the help!

    Index of /

    Below is what I had posted before I checked log files and tried again...

    Ok, Restarted.
    Code:
    apache-server    :  online (Include httpd-vhosts, proxy-html, httpd_php, httpd_phpmyadmin)
    so this is what's in the two files...

    apache.conf
    Code:
    #
    # This is the main Apache HTTP server configuration file.  It contains the
    # configuration directives that give the server its instructions.
    # See <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/> for detailed information.
    # In particular, see
    # <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/mod/directives.html>
    # for a discussion of each configuration directive.
    #
    # Do NOT simply read the instructions in here without understanding
    # what they do.  They're here only as hints or reminders.  If you are unsure
    # consult the online docs. You have been warned.
    #
    # Configuration and logfile names: If the filenames you specify for many
    # of the server's control files begin with "/" (or "drive:/" for Win32), the
    # server will use that explicit path.  If the filenames do *not* begin
    # with "/", the value of ServerRoot is prepended -- so "logs/access_log"
    # with ServerRoot set to "/usr/local/apache2" will be interpreted by the
    # server as "/usr/local/apache2/logs/access_log", whereas "/logs/access_log"
    # will be interpreted as '/logs/access_log'.
    
    #
    # ServerRoot: The top of the directory tree under which the server's
    # configuration, error, and log files are kept.
    #
    # Do not add a slash at the end of the directory path.  If you point
    # ServerRoot at a non-local disk, be sure to specify a local disk on the
    # Mutex directive, if file-based mutexes are used.  If you wish to share the
    # same ServerRoot for multiple httpd daemons, you will need to change at
    # least PidFile.
    #
    ServerRoot "/opt/local"
    
    #
    # Mutex: Allows you to set the mutex mechanism and mutex file directory
    # for individual mutexes, or change the global defaults
    #
    # Uncomment and change the directory if mutexes are file-based and the default
    # mutex file directory is not on a local disk or is not appropriate for some
    # other reason.
    #
    # Mutex default:/var/run
    
    #
    # Listen: Allows you to bind Apache to specific IP addresses and/or
    # ports, instead of the default. See also the <VirtualHost>
    # directive.
    #
    # Change this to Listen on specific IP addresses as shown below to
    # prevent Apache from glomming onto all bound IP addresses.
    #
    #Listen 12.34.56.78:80
    Listen 0.0.0.0:80

    napp-it Z-Raid vCluster v.2

    I am on the way to finish my Z-Raid Cluster in a Box solution.
    In the past a Cluster in a Box consists of two servers with a common pool of mpio SAS disks. One of the servers builds a pool from the disks and offers services like NFS or SMB. On a failure or for maintenance you can switch over to the second server within a few seconds. Management is done for example with RSF-1 from high-availability. SuperMicro offers special cases that can hold two mainboards

    Such solutions are expensive and management is quite complex but offers high performance and high availability. To reduce costs, my solution is based on ESXi (any license) to virtualize the two nodes and a control instance. It uses the shared controller/ shared raw disk options of ESXi so my solution does not need multipath SAS but can work with any disks.

    Setup see http://www.napp-it.org/doc/downloads/z-raid.pdf

    If you want to try the preview state that allows a manual failover within 20s, you can update napp-it to the free 18.02 preview (or 18.12dev).

    vCluster Beta2 is available (napp-it 18.12g dev)

    Current state:
    Manual Failover between nodes working for NFS and SMB
    For SMB it supports failover for local user and AD users connected to the share during failover.

    Todo
    auto-failover (on tests)

    Expect vCluster to next Pro (Jan 2019)

    Hey all,

    So I tried to update my Solaris ESX Guest VM (that has a HBA passed through) and it seems stuck on an old version of Solaris 11.3 (0.5.11-0.175.3.1.0.5.3). This VM is only used as ZFS storage with a bunch of NFS and SMB shares off the pools.

    I can't seem to upgrade to 11.4 as there is a broken dependency, so apparently need to get to RU27 first, but I can't seem to figure that out either, the repos don't seem available and I don't have any support contracts.

    I'm wondering if Solaris is still the best way to go, is Linux suitable replacement now? Or should I look at replacing it with one of the "applications" listed here, like NAPP-IT etc? It's been a few years since I looked into this so need to basically start again with this research. From memory, if I create a new VM, I can present the disks and import the pools, right?

    Any guidance/assistance would be appreciated! I'll still continue to do my Googling.

    Short answer is that unless you can get your S11.3 system up to 27 or greater (some say 35) there is no upgrade path to 11.4.

    But S11.4 is a nice advance on 11.3, I will be updating my storage system by replacing the boot mirror disks and installing 11.4, the real data is on a separate ZFS pool, and transferring passwd/groups and the like takes bugger all time (but then I've had several decades of practice in updating UNIX systems in-place).

    So if i did a fresh install of 11.4 on a new root zpool, then I can just import the other zpool?

    Being a VM, I just can detach the disk and add a new one, if it all goes pear shape, just re-add the original disk back in.

    In terms of users/passwd/grps etc, somehow all my linux and Solaris boxes got out of sync in terms of uid/gid's so I'm actually happy to redo the Solaris perms and even look at using adding a GUI overlay (napp-it etc).

    For an update from 11.3 to 11.4 (without support contract) you need to
    - install Solaris 11.4
    - import the former datapool (and update ZFS to v.44 to get the new features)

    To maintain napp-it settings
    - save and restore /var/web-gui/_log ex with WinSCP
    With napp-it Pro you can run a backup job and restore via menu Users > Restore

    To maintain users
    add the former users with the same uid/gid or
    save/restore /etc/passwd, /etc/shadow, /etc/user_attr and /var/smb/* (SMB passwords)

    otherwise on SMB
    reset permissions ex from Windows when connected via SMB as root

    about napp-it
    napp-it is a management tool to make a full featured webmanaged storage appliance
    out of a default setup of Oracle Solaris or one of the free Solaris forks OpenIndiana (successor of OpenSolaris), see https://napp-it.org/manuals/index_en.html


    about ESXi and Storage VM
    There are two trouble free options

    - use an LSI HBA in pass-through mode.
    The storage VM has full native access to HBA and disks

    - use an LSI HBA and attach to ESXi (no pass-through)
    You can then attach single SAS or Sata disks to a VM (menu VM properties, add disk > raw disk). This gives the VM physical disk access as well

    For Solaris 11.4 you should use ESXi 6.7U1 as the genuine vmware tools support Solaris 11.4 then, https://forums.servethehome.com/index.php?threads/oracle-solaris-11-4.18133/

    or OmniOS (minimalistic OS for production storage use)

    Awesome summary, thank you!

    - I don't currently use napp-it or any GUI, done everything via cli, so a GUI would be an enhancement;
    - Only have 1 user atm but want to change that to multiple
    - That's exactly what I do with a LSI HBA in passthrough mode;
    - It's currently running 5.5 but I'm in the process of testing the upgrade process from 5.5 -> 6.0 -> 6.7, esp now the ESXUI is included;
    - I'll definitely look at OmniOS as I really am only using for "home production" storage.

    downforce. I am a diehard solaris to napp-it convert. Do it. I like OI over OmniOS as it has a GUI.

    Only issue is you need a new set of disks as the zpool/zfs versions are not transportable

    Yes.

    If your original system was on rpool, you can use "zpool import old_rpool_id newpoolname".

    If you are going to replace Solaris with OmniOS, you may not be able to import things, I am not sure if OmniOS has kept up with zfs and zpool versions. (That's not a dig at OmniOS, it takes time and effort to reverse engineer these things.)

    correct, sadly, you can not import to OmniOS from anything near recent Solaris.

    Lol. Love it.
    In truth, I was always an Open Solaris devotee and Open Indianna is just going back to my roots. Praise be to the server gods.

    OpenIndiana Hipster 2019.05 is out
    Release notes: 2019.05 Release notes - OpenIndiana - OpenIndiana Wiki

    Editions:
    GUI/live for server and desktop use with a Mate 1.22 desktop
    Text (prefer this this for server use)
    Minimal (minimal Ilumos)

    about OpenIndiana.
    OpenIndiana is always based on the most current Illumos (the common development platform for all Illumos based distributions) with quite a huge repository including many server and desktop apps. This is different to the new OmniOS 151030 LTS (long term stable) from may 2019 that is a freeze of the current Illumos state for the next 2 years with only security and bug fixes. Beside extras like LX zones and Bhyve OmniOS 151030 is quite similar to OpenIndiana 2019.05 text.

    OmniOS bloody 151031 now supports native ZFS encryption

    napp-it 19.dev from today (jul 04) supports encryption
    in menu ZFS filesystem (create, lock, unlock)
