I recently migrated vCenter to a newer server and thought I had covered all my bases. vSphere seems to be working correctly and VSC does too until I try to run a backup job. The backup jobs fail without giving much info. I also get an error message when clicking on 'Monitoring and Host Config\Storage Details - NAS', "Server query failed. Please see the logs for details".
The credentials for the filers seem to be correct, as the overview tab looks good and I have successfully provisioned several datastores using VSC since the migration. I have also reset the default controller credentials.
In the vsc.log I see the following
[ERROR] getServerData() FAILED
[ERROR] Error: The call failed on the server; see server log for details
..which is the same as the pop-up error. not too helpful.
We are still on vSphere 5.0, so I could upgrade to VSC 4.2.1, but would like to have access to my backups before I do.
Google doesn't return any relevant results, has anyone experienced this error?
