Any idea how to clear the following warning message. Attached the screenshot as a word document. Basically the VSC plug-in shows the status as 'disabled' in the Plug-In Manager with following error message...
"The following error occured while downloading the script plugin from https://<vcenter_server_name>:8143/vSphereExtensionDescriptor.xml; The request failed because of a connection failure. (Unable to connect to the remote server)."
I have the same issue with VSC 4.2 on Vcenter 5.5 client. I can connect to 3 other vcenters with the client using the NetApp VSC 4.2 plugin with no issue but one of them will not work. So it now shows enabled but is not working for connecting to one vcenter. I keep getting this error :
Virtual Storage Console NetApp, Inc. 4.2.1 Enabled Virtual Storage Console for VMware vSphere The following error occured while downloading the script plugin from https://XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX:8143/vSphereExtensionDescriptor.xml: The request failed because of a connection failure. (Unable to connect to the remote server)
I restarted the VSC service on the vcenter server running windows and tried again and same issue.
Sorry for late reply but yes I got it fixed. Called support and essentially uninstalled 4.2.1 and installed 4.2.2 on the vCenter server with the issue. Here were the steps. This kept the backup repository and configurations intact.
shut down services copy out repository to desktop uninstall 4.2.1 rename D:\Program Files\NetApp\Virtual Storage Console to D:\Program Files\NetApp\Virtual Storage Console.old install 4.2.2 use registration URL https://localhost:8143/Register.html Add controllers (modify controller settings, etc..) don't click on backup and recovery tab yet. shut services down: smvi and VSC move copied repository folder to new install location. start services back up: smvi and VSC open vCenter again open NetApp Verify controllers are OK browse to the Backup and Recovery Verify backups run, restores run,
