Has anyone had success using the OnTAP Simulator with System Center Virtual Machine Manage 2012 RC?
I've been playing around with the new process of adding providers and have continued to run into problems managing storage pools. After adding the storage provider to VMM, I am unable to add classifications, and manage any storage pools. The odd thing is, the same simulator setup works if I use SCVMM 2012 BETA.
Upon adding the provider, I receive an error code within SCVMM: HostTypeNotSupported. If I view the properties of the properties and try again, the error changes to "NO PARAM: NO PARAM."
I am currenly trying to use:
SCVMM2012 RC Build 3.0.5007.0
OnTAPSMI-S Agent 4.0
NetApp OnTAPSimulator 7.3.6
I can't seem to find anyone with any insight as to why this might have broke between versions of SCVMM 2012.
Sorry no, I have not been able to resolve this problem.
I've been troubleshooting this for 3 weeks. Using the exact NetApp Simulator (running on Ubuntu virtual machine) with SCVMM 2012 BETA works just fine, but switching to SCVMM 2012 RC, it breaks as described above. No one seems to know why.
So you're note using a Simulator to test, but a physical device?
The error indicates that VMM server is not able to communicate with the agent (Microsoft Storage Management Service) running on VMM.contoso.com. Please collect the VMM logs and forward it to VMM Product team. Can you provide information regarding setup of VMM, SMIS agent and Filer. e.g. are they on the same subnet, are they able to ping each other using ip and hostname, is DNS properly configured. I would recommend reinstalling Microsoft Storage management service and then restarting VMM server.
I have tested against a BETA version of SCVMM and this error does not occur. The classification of the pool is successful. This indicates that it may be an issue with the RC software specifically. I have updated the product team with this information.
In the meantime, does anybody have any further updates or pointers?
I have same problem with ONTAP Simulator + ONTAP SMI-S Agent 4.0 + VMM 2012 RC.
All goes OK when I adding a storage to SMI-S Agent and adding a provider to VMM 2012 RC.
But VMM failed when tried to add ONTAP Array to classification. I'm also receiving an error codes within SCVMM: HostTypeNotSupported and If I view the properties of the properties and try again, the error changes to "NO PARAM: NO PARAM." (see screenshots below)
Please, help me to find solution.
That's what we have command mentioned in a post on the forum:
C:\Windows\System32>smis Administrator Passw0rd list
C:\Windows\System32>smis Administrator Passw0rd version
