Trying to setup vvol the VASA provider doesn't show in the web console


I am trying to setup vvol in my lab environment. I have a FAS3240 in cluster mode (8.2.2)


I have vSphere/vCenter 5.5 (2 hosts in a cluster)


I have iscsi and nfs available/working


I have deployed the VSC 6.0 and it shows up correctly in the vSphere web console.


I have deployed the VASA ova, assigned an IP and registered it with VSC.


I have installed VAAI on the two hosts I am working on.


I am not seeing the VASA Provider when I right click on a host, only the VSC. I am also not seeing anything but the gold/bronze/silver in the storage capability profiles. Is there something I am missing?



VVOLs is only supported with vCenter 6.0.  By default, there are 3 system created policies.  You can create new SCPs via the SCP wizard.


Hi there

VVols requires vSphere (vCenter and ESXi) 6.0.  It will not work with vSphere 5.5.
