We Installed VSC 6.1 on our environment and I’ve noticed that when provisioning a datastore with the VSC or directly from onCommand, it gets created and mounted but its information is not available on the VSC plugin until we restart the VSC service.
Also we are tracking an issue that seemed to have pop up when we installed the VSC plug in, where the host does not show up in the vCenter inventory but it only affects the web client, If we use the vSphere C# client we can see the host in the inventory. If we disable and unregister the VSC extension and restart the web client service the host shows up in the inventory of the web client again.
We are using vSphere 6 Multi-vCenter using separate Platfom Service Controllers.
Any one else seen these problems?
- Complete new installation on VM > Win2012 R2; vCenterServer 6.0 Update1; VSC6.0 (on same server).
- Different hosts/cluster with ESX5.1 U3 / ESX6.0 U1; every hosts in the same cluster
- All users using the webclient. In vSphereClient everthing okay.
- host is available via search, but can't be displayed
- all other features are available.
Hi, did you ever get a fix as we are expriencing the same issue. new install vsphere 6u1 esx host 6u1 VSC 6.1 running on windows 2012r2.
Webclient Host and clusters the host disappers.
If you haven't already done so, please open a support case. We're aware of the problem and working to resolve it, but more data is always helpful.
If it helps, I have the same problem in my lab : )
Not a solution, but a potential workaround. In my lab, which has been experiencing this issue, the hosts reappeared after rebooting vCenter. If you can, you may want to give this a try.
We also noticed this issue. Behavior is random/sporadic, sometimes they are there, other times missing. Changes states (appearing / not appearing) within a few seconds/minutes at times. We verified it was not tied to any one browser (reproduced on IE 11, Chrome & Firefox) and different client machines. Uninstalling the VSC 6.1 plug-in solved the problem immediately for us.
Any news on t hat? We are running VSC 6.2 and are still encountering the same behavoir:
Hosts are dropping in and out of the host list at will, which makes if often impossible to do vMotion as there are not hosts available in the lists.
Are you running the Windows vCenter or VCSA "appliance" out of curiousity? For myself...we were seeing this on when we had VSC 6.1 installed on a separate windows VM and registered with the VCSA VM. Once I switched to a single Windows VM co-hosting both the Windows vCenter and VSC 6.1 applications ~ the problem never appeared. We haven't pursued this any further...since our baseline is going forward with this design... NOTE: we did need to create a service dependency in the Windows vCenter design (basically ~ not starting one of the VSC services until one of the vCenter services is already running).
Hope that helps...
