VSC 4.2.1 on vSphere 5.5 U2 fails to 'Set Recommended Values'


I have three ESXi 5.5 U2 hosts and each time I click on 'Set Recommended Values' I get the following:


"You have selected one or more hosts that the Monitoring and Host Configuration is unable to set the recommended values for."



Can you guys think of a reason?


Picture attached.



I'm running VSC 6.0 and ESXi 6 and got this same error. The fix for me using the web vCenter was to go to the host > NetApp VSC > Update Host and Storage Data. It would then allow Set Recommeded Values...


Thanks!!! 🙂




Can you try to add VSC to vCenter Admin group, restart VSC services, and reregister VSC plugin ?

Same issue on VSC 4.2.1 on the ESXi 5.1 U3 hosts I just added.

From memory, VSC service account didn't have propagated permissions at the root of vCenter hierarchy. I was added ok but the checkbox to propagate perms down wasn’t ticked. Give it a go and see what happens 😉
