Hi Syedfurquan,

the 3PAR VSS provider requires you to save the array certificate to a file to identify the system. This is usually stored in %USERPROFILE%\.hp3par.

Saving a Certificate File to a Directory
To save a certificate exception file to a directory where the CLI server will look for certificate
information. When the CLI server certificate is not verified by the certificate file, then the CLI
looks for this information in the certificate exception file.
- The -certdir global option.
- The TPDCERTDIR environment variable.

Check the 3PAR CLI manual for details on how this is done.

If you are able to connect with the remote CLI client, your cert or exception should already be in your .hp3par folder.

Are you logged onto Administrator as in : C:\Users\Administrator\.hp3par

 

>This is usually stored in %USERPROFILE%\.hp3par.

 

FYI: In the future, this will be changed to ".hpe3par"

Hi,

Yes I can See a file "excp" in the folder C:\Users\Administrator\.hp3par but still get the same error while installing HPE 3PAR VSS.

Re: Not able to install; HPE 3PAR VSS provider for Microsoft Windows

Please add C:\Program Files (x86)\Hewlett-Packard\HP 3PAR CLI\bin to the PATH variable and try again. You will most like need to logout and login again.
