I'm wondering if it would be possible to use the Virtual Storage Console Version 5 in the following configuration:
One VSphere Webclient has a connection to multiple VCenter Servers. Every VCenter Server is using the NetApp functionality through a seperate NetApp VSC.
_____ VCenter A -------------- NetApp Storage Console A
vSphere-Webclient -------------- VCenter B --------------- NetApp Storage Console B
VCenter C --------------- NetApp Storage Console C
Currently we have the same configuration running with VSphere 5.5 and NetApp VSC 4.2.1. It's running fine because with VSC 4.2.1 you need to use the traditional VSphere Client and you are only connecting to a single VCenter.
Now we would like to update to version 5.0 to have the full functionality in the Webclient.
Maybe someone has already tried this configuration and can give me a short answer.
during the study of the Release Notes from Virtual Storage Console 6.0 i found the following information.
Virtual Storage Console 6.0 for VMware vSphere and VASA Provider 6.0 for clustered Data ONTAP add several new features. New features include support for the following: • (VSC only) Managing multiple vCenter Servers from a single vSphere Web Client Each VSC server is registered with a single vCenter Server. This must be a unique one-to-one pairing. Note: At this time, VASA Provider requires a single vCenter Server environment.
Maybe someone has already deployed the new version in such a scenario. It would be very interesting to hear if it is working now.
Despite following the procedure (uninstalling the Plugin from the vCenter), I cannot register the VSC on more than one vCenter. As soon as I register on one vCenter the plugin unregister from the other vCenter.
