Re: VIBE can not connect to filer

Hi Rob,

sorry, no difference: wether using --config.cfg or directly from the cmd-prompt, the result is the same: no connection, no rsh communication.

Meanwhile we reconfigured the VCenter server with a second connection to the server VLAN, so we can connect directly via IP 192.168.8.x - but still getting no connection.

THX anyway.

Re: VIBE can not connect to filer

Hi, all. I spoke with Markus and it looks like 1.0.7 does the trick for his RSH testing. 1.0.8 should be on the NOW ToolChest shortly (they are doing some maintenance work which has caused some delays).

Re: VIBE can not connect to filer

Yes, it really solved my problems.

1.0.8 is available on the NOW ToolChest for download. Thanks,

Re: VIBE can not connect to filer

Hi - We are experiencing the same issue. We are using 1.0.8 and backups via rsh is working fine. However, we can not do restores using ZAPI. ZAPI wasn't working either for backups.

We added a second NIC to VC like Mark did and still having issues with Error Code 11; however, we know the sauser and sapassword is correct because we are using it for backups.

Any chance we can use rsh for restores?

Re: VIBE can not connect to filer

I upgraded to version 1.0.10 and I am still having issues with restore via ZAPI. I am getting the following error:

[14:35:00] Virtual Center login successful.

Re: VIBE can not connect to filer

Fixed ZAPI issue by enabling options httpd.admin.enable on netapp

Re: VIBE can not connect to filer

I think we've answered the 'httpd.admin.enable' to 'on' option, but in terms of RSH for restores, we felt that restores would be an uncommon, unscheduled event, and as a result we focused on the ZAPI functionality instead. 1.0.10 now offers the ability to see why the failure occurred which should be sufficient for most to figure out to turn that on.

Thanks,

Re: VIBE can not connect to filer

Thanks Matt... The error reporting for 1.0.10is definitely better and now that we know what the issue with ZAPI was, we are revertng to ZAPI for backups as well. The cryptpasswd feature you added is reason enough for us to switch to ZAPI.
