Re: After install plugin remote over GUI snapcenter host core service is unreachable

This is a known issue with SnapCenter 4.1.1/4.2 versions with Windows 2019 Server OS

Make sure you start the Microsoft ISCSI Initiator server service on the Plugin host.

 

TITLE: SnapCenter Server 4.1.1 reports Windows 2019 hosts as down or inaccessible with no plugins installed

DESCRIPTION: If SnapCenter Server 4.1.1 is installed on a Windows 2019 host, it will report that the host is down or inaccessible with no plugins installed. The overall status of the service is marked as Stopped.

WORKAROUND:
1. On SQL node/nodes: 

  •  Open Windows Explorer
  •  Navigate to folder "<sc_install_drive>:\Program Files\NetApp\SnapCenter Plug-in for Microsoft Windows"
  •  Modify the file "SnapDriveService.exe.Config" and add the below line under <appsettings>:

<add key="usecmdletforinitiatordiscovery2019" value="false" />


2. Restart following services:

  • "SnapCenter SMCore Service"
  • "SnapCenter Plug-in for Windows Service"


3. From SnapCenter GUI refresh the assets:

  • SnapCenter -> [Resources] -> [File Systems] -> [Refresh Resources]
  • SnapCenter -> [Hosts]  -> <mark host xxxx> -> [Refresh VM]
