Provider status displays URI error an SCVMM instance has an ESX host added to the Fabric
Last modified: 2016-10-03 12:19:18 EDT
Description of problem:
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open SCVMM instance, select Fabric and add a vCenter Server
2. Click VM tab and add vCenter Cluster as a Host
3. In appliance, refresh the provider Relationships
In Status:Last Refresh you will see an error message stating the URI (example: "esx-55-01") invalid.
When this occurs, nothing from the provider updates and the provider is unusable.
I don't know if we want to actually manage cross-vendor hosts, but at a minimum it would be nice if we simply ignored it or perhaps placed it in a read-only state.
This takes a while to setup and it disrupts all appliances that use the SCVMM instance, so please contact me (jeff teehan) when you need to reproduce it and I'll get it all setup. It takes about 10-15 to set it up and another 10 to tear it down.
I don't know how common it is to do this, except that I've always put ESX hosts on my SCVMM instances and my Hyper-V hosts on my vCenter instances so that I could do simple stuff without having to fire up another management system.
