I am troubleshooting the new Host Service 1.1 on vSphere5 and having trouble registering it.
Just says “Failed to configure DataFabric Manager server IP address: 172.16.3.32 and port: 8488 on the Host Service”
When I look on the vCenter server (where host services is installed) I see it trying on the log...says Communication failure between HostAgent and DFM server: Could not establish trust relationship for the SSL/TLS secure channel with authority 'dfm-32:8488'. Please make sure DFM server is up running.
DFM server is up and running with no problems.
Windows Firewalls are turned off on both servers.
DNS is working both forward/reverse on both hosts.
I have re-installed Host Services on vcenter server, but no change and installer completes with no errors on both initial and reinstall.
AFAIK on my answer post itself there should be mark this answer as helpful and mark this answer as correct. I didnt have privilege to mark a reply as correct till now as I haven't posted much questions here
I am having exactly the same problem and have been for the past week... could you please detail for me how the following step is done, ideally I would like to avoid re-installing the Host software on our vCenter server.
Force HS to exchange certificate with DFM again using following command in HS powershell : Configure-HostService -options authorize::false
I can't seem to find where the powershell cmdlets are located or can "Configure-HostService" be run from just entering powershell on the Host Service server.
PS C:\Documents and Settings\snapdrive> Get-HSConfiguration
HostServiceId : 536 HostServiceVersion : 188.8.131.522 HostServiceTimeZone : GMT Standard Time HostDNSName : csovmvc01.xx.xxxx.xx HostOperatingSystem : Microsoft Windows NT 5.2.3790 Service Pack 2 DFMNameOrIPAddress : 10.11.8.31 EndpointAddress : https://10.11.8.31:8488/apis/soap/v1 Port : 8488
Going back to the DFM console and running "dfm hs list" it is still showing the host as down and the same error messages are being shown in the D:\Program Files\NetApp\OnCommand Host Package\Host Service\OnCommandHostSvc.log
One thing I have noticed since the re-install when I open "Start" "All Programs" "NetApp" it doesnt show " On-Command Windows Powershell Cmdlets" anymore.....
