We are running SMVI ver 2.0. I have recently added an additional ESXi 4.1 server into a cluster in Vcenter. When I go into the VSC plugin I could not see the host under the ESX hosts section. Tried refreshing by selecting update in VSC no joy. As a test I removed a dev ESXi server from Vcenter as soon as I did this I could then see the new server under VSC ? Any licence restrictions to SMVI. I read elsewhere some one said it was licenced either on the filers or on the hosts? We've never put a SMVI licence on the filers except a flexcone licence. Anyone had this issue ?
Have you attached the new ESX server to any NetApp datastores yet? Also SMVI does not tend to show you ESX hosts just datastores or VMs. Do you mean the VSC portion of the plug in? If so, you will want to do a manual update using the update button on the top right.
There are no license restrictions in VSC or SMVI so you should see everything fine.
