I opened NetApp Log # 2001900768 yesterday on this. I'm working through some fun trying to get the plugin operational. Is it best practice to install it on the same server as vCenter or use a remote server? We are still setting up our Filers and have not presented netapp storage to them. However we have setup the filers with a seperate account for vCenter access, we set them to allow http access and we are not using SSL. The filers have dedicated IP addresses and I can manage them via Netapp System Manager etc.
When I open VSC in vCenter and it goes off for a long time doing discovery then assuming it is registered with vCenter it will come back with one of the filers and a NAS device by IP. I want to rid the config of the NAS device that VSC thinks is a controller. Support sent a couple kb articles that aren't much help yet.
I do not have a VSC.XML file on the system at this point perhaps due to all the times mucked with this thing. Right now I don't think it is properly registered with vCenter so discoveries come back empty.
https://localhost:8143/register.html comes back as
Problem accessing /register.html. Reason:
I don't know if this is good old Windows UAC or if the plugin is just foobar to use a Netapp term.
Please give me something other than a stupid wizard to rely for configuration!

Thanks. This helped me with my problem. After a vCenter upgrade from 5.0 to 5.1, I was getting a HTTP Error 403, Forbidden for /Main.html while trying to use the VSC in the vSphere client. This lead me to this and I faced the same issue with a capital Registry.html. Re-registering the plugin did the trick.
