Nimble-Vmware6.7 Vasa Error


I have configuired a Vmware 6.7 cluster with Nimble storage. I have manged to succesfully intergrate Nimble with vCenter. Storage Provider is avaible and on line, hoever my Protocol End Points are empty. The logs show that i have certificate issues. i have confirmed that the time on all hosts are in sysnc. Below are the logs

[root@ESXi-01:~] esxcli storage vvol vasaprovider list
VP Name: SAN01
Status: syncError
Array Id: NimbleStorage:28e27bf3365280e7

info vvold[2197073] [Originator@6876 sub=Default] VasaSession::GetEndPoint: with url

info vvold[2197073] [Originator@6876 sub=Default] Initialize: Failed to establish connection


I think this may be an issue with certs but not sure. i have tried to reset the vvold ssl, refreshed the host certs and renewwd, no luck.

VMFS daatastore is woring fine.

Please help!

More information will be needed to pinpoint the exact problem.  What kind of certs are used: self-signed or VMCA signed?  What is the version of ESXi?  Ideally please open a case with Nimble support and they can help look into details.  Meanwhile this VMware KB seems potentially useful: https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/67744
