  • 1.  Auto-deploy cache location and verification

    Posted Aug 21, 2014 01:12 PM

    Hello,

    I am currently testing the auto-deploy feature in lab and I'm having some issues with the stateless caching:

    I configured stateless caching through host profile and my host is shown as compliant to the profile in the vSphere client.

    If I stop my TFTP / DHCP server, my host seems to boot on the cache (I have an alert flag in my vCenter stating that it is not compliant with the profile)

    I tried to stop the auto-deploy service to check the stateless caching feature (as per Auto Deploy Stateless Caching – Auto Deploy Server Outage | VMware vSphere Blog - VMware Blogs )

    It reboots and try again indefinitely without booting on the cached image, that makes me think I might have a problem with the cache.

    I want to verify that the ESXi is well cached on the disk. Is there a way to perform such a check?

    How can I find the cache location?

    Thanks,

    Sevan
