VSC 6.0 - no Datastores Entities to select when creating Backupjob





- VSphere 5.5 upd2 (Appliance)

- VSC 5.01p on a Windows 2008 R2


I've tried to install VSC 6.0:


1) Installed it (on a Windows 2012 R2 Host --- not the same host as the current VSC 5.01 Installation is running on)

2) I've removed the Webcenter UI as described in Documenation:



In a virtual appliance console window, use a Secure Shell (SSH) to log into the vCenter Server as root.

Change to the vsphere-client-serenity directory:

cd /var/lib/vmware/vsphere-client/vc-packages/vsphere-client-serenity

Stop the vSphere Web Client:

Service vsphere-client stop

Remove the directories containing the UI extensions:

rm -rf com.netapp*

 Restart the vSphere Web Client:

Service vsphere-client star



3) I've registered the new VSC 6.0 to this Vcenter Appliance via https://localhost:8143/Register.html


4) Everything seems to work with VSC 6.0 in the Vsphere Web Gui except when i try to create a backup job there are no Datastore Entities to choose; i can choose the Datacenter but there are no Datastores to choose in the Select Field.


I had to roll back the Vsphere Appliance to the pre-VSC 6.0 install for now and working again with VSC 5.5. I've checked for bugs regarding this but found nothing so far.


Any Advices?
