did anybody try VSC 7.1 with vSphere 6.7 yet? I deployed the VSC appliance, it successfully registered to vCenter as shown in VSC maintenance screen and in vcenter/mob extensionManager, but its icon does not appear in vCenter nor is it displayed in the client plugins list in vCenter 6.7.
I already tried it using different browsers and rebooted the vCenter VCSA 6.7.
We are having new hardware, and had issues with 6.5, which we don't have with 6.7. But now we are blocked because of Netapp.... So the choice is between instable system because of hardware or not having VSC...
Is there a known release date for an updated version of VSC? If this is in 2-3 weeks, we can live with that. If this is in 2-3 month, we have a problem...
On the surface, it does look like an unnecessary delay in supporting vCenter 6.7. However, engineering is working on the changes for vCenter 6.7 and also on shipping a completely new, pure HTML5, UI. This work leverages the new UI architecture introduced with vCenter 6.7 (and also supported with vCenter 6.5U2). These changes are not small and there is a significant effort ongoing to ensure that the customer experience is superior to the existing Flash based UI. On a parallel note, we can also see that currently only 2 vendors are supporting HTML5 with vCenter 6.7:
Also most of the storage vendors have plans for supporting vCenter 6.7 in the latter half of 2018 as per VMware’s blog post. The new architecture is not something which has been in existence for a long time and has been introduced only recently (please refer to the link and do notice the date). There are other eco system changes which also need to be incorporated (like Java upgrade to Oracle Java 11 for example).
We would like thank all our customers for being patient with us and assure all of them that the new improved HTML5 based UI, supporting vCenter 6.7 and vCenter 6.5U2, will be well worth the wait.
By now, VSC 7.2 was released. We updated our VSC instances: One connected to vCenter 6.5 and the other connected to vCenter 6.7.
vCenter 6.5 support by VSC 7.2. is fine: NetApp VSC plugin shows up in vSphere Web Client (Flex/Flash) and in HTML5 client and is working as expected, even in German HTML5 client (using the latest Fling appliance 3.39).
vCenter 6.7 support by VSC 7.2 is terrible: It does not show up in Flex Client, but it shows up in HTML5 client home menu as "app.name" when HTML5 client displays German language. With an English browser it shows up as "Virtual Storage Console".
However, in 6.7 it's displaying an HTTP 500 error in vSphere Client:
When adding a storage, it displays:
It's absolutely crucial for us that VSC fully supports vCenter 6.7 asap. We have production vCenters @ 6.7.
It would be fine to have a version with the technical preview for the HTML5 client, but the support for Flash based client should not been dropped until the HTML5 version is working fine.
"This week, our NetApp engineering team released the latest version of the Virtual Storage Console unified software to connect users of NetApp® ONTAP® to their VMware environments, including vSphere 6.5"
I really hope 6.5 was a typo as it has been around since 2016... but looking at the replies here I just hope we will see a P1 release asap with full 6.7 support.
With vCenter 6.7 Update 1 now GA, NetApp support for vSphere 6.7 is even more imperative. Update 1 brings several new features especially the re-embedding of the PSC's that many of us have been waiting for. Please expedite the release of 7.1.1 or whatever version will support 6.7.
