Smart Update Tools for ESXi

Using the command line, I've been trying to finish the configuration of the hpsut for esxi server. I've been able to set the vCenter host information (IP, username, password) with no problems. I cannot seem to set the OneView host information. I'm using the syntax specified in the help section as well as the user guide yet I keep getting an invalid username/password error. On the hpsut server, I see in the sutesxi_service.log file the following:

it seems to make contact with the OneView server and can retrieve the API version but then fails with the auth.

I'm using the local OneView Administrator account. I thought it may be the password at first (lots of special characters) so I tried creating another local admin account with a basic password and had the same results. I also tried various admin directory accounts and all fail.  I know there's no root account so I'm at a loss of why this is failing.

Oneview 3.0

HP Sut Server: RHEL 7

HPSUT for linux

The OneView appliance and the RHEL 7 server on on the same esxi host and are layer 2 adjacent. I can telnet from the RHEL box to the OneView appliance on 80 and 443 so i think networking is fine.

Any suggestions?


Re: Smart Update Tools for ESXi

Do you have your HPE OneView appliance configured to use an LDAP Authentication Directory, and have you changed the Default Login from "Local" to the directory you have configured?

If so, you will need to change it back to "Local" as the HPSUTESXi service does not support sending that authentication directory name to the appliance.

Changing the Defaul Login from our directory to Local did it. Thanks a bunch Chris, I was going crazy with this.
