In my vSphere environment I have a few different clusters with several different storage solutions. One of these is a Cisco Hyperflex cluster, which is a HCI stack with Cisco's acquired Springpath storage. This creates issues for us when using VSC to provision datastores;
- When running the provisioning wizard it will fail at step 2, select storage system
- Reviewing the logs with support last year we identified that VSC cannot resolve the IP of a datastore UID
- The UID is connected to the Hyperflex datastore
- The workaround is adding an IP that resolves to the ID in /etc/hosts file
This is a workaround that lets us provision datastores, but I would like a more permanent solution to this bug. Does anyone have any idea on how we can go about this without manual entries in the hosts-file?
