SV-SMVI failing with HTTPS switch


OS Level: Ontap 8.0.2

I am setting up SV-SMVI 3.0 in a secure environment where SSL is required.

The filers that we use all have  httpd.admin.enable set to off (and admin.SSL.enable set to ON)

The problem is, when I use the HTTPS switch in my config file, SMVI is successfully able to create a snapshot on the source filer, but then hangs when trying to progress to the Snapvault step.  I get no error message, the job just completes successfully in VCenter and the contents of the verbose report are as follows (IPs removed):



[10:34:40] SV-SMVI Version: 3.0.3

That is the end of the report.

I received a temporary reprieve to test the system with httpd.admin.eneble set to ON and the job ran normally.


Re: SV-SMVI failing with HTTPS switch


The solution was simple, as it turns out.  The issue was that the system was not properly addressing the HOST IP change for all steps.  I added a vNIC to the VCENTER so that it could communicate on the 7.x network and the backup processed normally.
