I try to install VSC 5.0 on our vCenter 5.5 U1 (Hosts also on 5.5. U1) on Windows 2012 Standard. We have some problems with it.
The first issue we had: the VSC service did not start or stoped immediately ... the solution came from this thread "Issue with fresh install of VSC 5.0x6" (we had no keystore.properties and nvpf.keystore) ... Creating the SSL certificate: vsc ssl setup -cn <hostname>
Now the VSC service runs but we can not register the VSC with the vCenter Server. I get only a blank page although the server runs on port 8143 (checked with telnet on this port).
I think the main problem is SMVI. In the event log it writes perpetually an error:
69715903 [timerFactory] WARN com.netapp.common.credentials.FileCredentialPersistenceManager - CPM-00305: Persistence file ../../etc/vsphere-credentials does not exist.
So my question: how can I fix the missing vsphere-credentials file?
