is it possible to have multiple (at least 2) VSC installed and registered to individual Vcenters? We have a corporate infrastructure and a seperate VDI infrastructure. I have VSC installed on a physical machine where Vcenter is installed and I can register it just fine. I did another install on a virtual machine and VSC doesn't even start and just gives the following error in Eventlog:
239581510 [timerFactory] WARN com.netapp.common.credentials.FileCredentialPersistenceManager - CPM-00305: Persistence file ../../etc/vsphere-credentials does not exist.
Solved! SEE THE SOLUTION

Do you have two vCenter ?
If you have two separate vCenter, and two separate VSC, I don't see any reason why you couldn't use two instances of VSC.
VSC just run API commands on the storage, so in my understanding, that is almost like running 2 System Manager from different computers, which works well.
Did you get any error message during the install of VSC?

the only error I get during install is at the end. It just says that it can't start the VSC service. Looking at the eventlog I saw the error in my post above.

thanks for all your input. I have solved this by first installing VSC 4.2.1 and then upgrade to 5.0. This worked fine. So it seems to be really possible to have multiple VSC installs and Vcenters.
