we have installed VSC installed on server a server 192.168.120.102, the VCenter is installed on another server 192.168.120.108 and the vsc version is 2.1 and is successfully integrated in vCenter , now when we are trying to invoke methods like createDatastore through perl using SOAP, it is showing the error however through vCenter its performing well, below is the xml error (error.txt is attached for detailed error), could somebody help on this ??
Thanks in advance.
The error message shows: Unable to connect to VC server at https://192.168.120.108/sdk/vimService
You need to specify the connection paths as described in the samples and the IAG.
my $vc = "192.168.120.108";
my $serviceHost = "192.168.120.102";
my $rcuService = SOAP::Lite->service("https://$serviceHost:8143/kamino/public/api?wsdl");
my $serviceUrl = SOAP::Data->type('string')->name('serviceUrl')->value("https://$vc/sdk");
but i am using exactly whatever you specied above ...but there is something which seems a prolem ..
when i go to the web bowser and enter url #https://192.168.120.108/sdk
i get the the below message
HTTP 404 - File not found
however if i type https://192.168.120.108/ in 192.168.120.102's web browser "VMware vSphere 4" console appers
is that an issue ???
That shouldn't be a problem. You could try running the API from 192.168.120.108.
we are running the API from another server not from 192.168.120.108.
Well, based on what you've reported, it appears to be some networking issue. You can reach it from one server but not another.
the server where i am running api i am able to ping both 102 & 108 but vice versa is not possible.
No, the HTTP 404 is not a problem. You can see the following VMware KB for more info: http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=1003218
What do you receive if you navigate to https://192.168.120.108/mob/ from 192.168.120.102 and use the same username you provided vsc?
Also, I have sent you a private message on another matter, please check your inbox.
Thanks i have checked your message!!
moreover on the above action what you asked above, on doing that it asks for credentials and after supplying the credentials we get another page , please check screenshot below!!
Also, you have said that you are trying to invoke the VSC methods via the SOAP api. Have you tried the same functions through the UI instead of using SOAP? Does it provide different results?
you mean to say through the GUI of vcenter ? yeah the operation which i need to perform through api are working well while using GUI.
If its working through the UI, then its doubtful that its a network issue as any network issue affecting the API would also affect the UI. Your ability to navigate to the MOB shows that the web services(tomcat, etc) are working and that the vmware SDK interface should be working as well.
I believe it just comes down to how you're making your call and the parameters therein.Can you verify and post what you have set in your POST for the ServiceURL parameter?
Thanks for you response!!
below are some parts of my code,
my $vscService = SOAP::Lite->service("https://192.168.xxx.102:8143/kamino/public/api?wsdl");
my $serviceUrl = SOAP::Data->type('string')->name('serviceUrl')->value("https://192.168.xxx.108/sdk");
in the createDatastore method i have
my $datastoreSpec = getDatastoreSpec("arg0");
my $requestSpec = getRequestSpec("arg1");
return $vscService->createDatastore($datastoreSpec, $requestSpec);
moreover in my request xml the field SOAP Action is blank, it shouldn't be blank.please suggest ?
could you please speak on pm ??
thanks in advance ...
this is how it is ? is there any modification required ??
