How To: Use PowerCLI to find (and disconnect) all CD Drives on VMs

VMs that leave ISOs mounted cause problems. I’d like to find all the VMs that have CD-ROM drives loaded with ISOs, look over that list, and then remove them if necessary.

Solution :

The first solution I provided here wasn’t that great, so I’m updating this post. The original contents have been changed because they previously would disconnect the entire CD-ROM drive, vs. just unmounting the ISO. As you can imagine, pulling the equivalent of ripping a CD-ROM drive out while a machine is running can cause some interesting behavior. The solution below outlines a much better way to do this.

Two one-line PowerCLI scripts will help us with this.

Firstly, to search for all Connected CD-ROMs for all VMs:

Get-VM | Where-Object {$_.PowerState –eq “PoweredOn”} | Get-CDDrive | FT Parent, IsoPath

And as long as there aren’t any you need to keep up, you can just select them all and then set the state to “No Media” for each CD-Drive:

Get-VM | Where-Object {$_.PowerState –eq “PoweredOn”} | Get-CDDrive | Set-CDDrive -NoMedia -Confirm:$False

Note the -Confirm:$False to allow it to just proceed with what it needs to do.

How to check if NUMA is enabled on ESX hardware?

You can check it by using ESXTOP:

1. Run esxtop

2. Press “m” to enter on memory statistics

3. Press “f” to change the fields displayed

4. Press “f” again to show NUMA related fields

If numa is enables, you will see values (like, 0, 1, 2, etc for each node) on the NHN column, like this image:

numa_esxtop_good.jpeg

(In this picture there is a VM running on 2 NUMA nodes).

If not, you will see the “-” on the NHN column:

no_numa_esxtop_good.jpeg
There is also a command to check directly if there are and how many are the NUMA nodes:

esxcli hardware memory get | grep NUMA

 

How to identify if ESXi is installed to SD card or local HDD?

In the vSphere client, Hosts and Clusters View (assuming vCenter), highlight the host in question. Configuration > Hardware > Storage > Change to Devices view. For each device, look down under device details, Primary Partitions, and look for the device that lists several partitions, including several “Legacy MBR” and a “VMware Diagnostic” partition. This should be the device that ESXi is installed on.
