VMware vCenter is not registered with OneView. Ensure OneView has a
network path to the vCenter and can validate the vCenter certificate

Re: how can config oneview to use proactiveHA feature in vcenter

Registering your vCenter in OneView is not related to this. Will not hurt anything but will not help. Same with iLO addresses and credentials. Not releated and in fact should not be done. With OneView in the environment there is no need to enter iLO or host credentials in OV4VC. 

If you are not seeing the HPE OneView provider in the P-HA providers list then I can think of a couple of things. OV4VC cannot communicate with the vCenter. Could be a networking issue. Or the vCenter user account used by OV4VC does not have adaquate privilage.

You can check the Proactive HA log in OV4VC. Download a log dump from the appliance admin website and check this file.

\log\var\log\ov4vc\proactiveha\proactiveha.log

Re: how can config oneview to use proactiveHA feature in vcenter

1. Correct. When you have OneView managing your servers you do not need to enter iLO, host, OA, or Virtual Connect credentials in OV4VC. When OneView is managing the environment OV4VC can get everything it needs from OneView and does not need to talk to the hardware directly.

2. Adding these credentials will cause OV4VC to collect data from iLO and ESXi every few minutes. This data will never be used since the data is already available from OneView. I would recommend removing all Device Credentials. They are only needed when OneView is not being used. All new features including Proactive HA require OneView.

Re: how can config oneview to use proactiveHA feature in vcenter

So thanks

1- now Is that possoble just deploy OV4VC without oneview for use proactiveHA and add host credential with ILO in oneview for vCenter plugin such as attach pic (44.jpg) ? or oneview is mandatory for use proactiveHA ?

 

2- if oneview is mandatory for use proactiveHA can I add ilo hos credentials as monitor not manage with oneview standard license or for run proactiveHA oneview advance license is mandatory ?

 

3- is that need add oneview in vCenter in server integration according aatch pic (2.jpg) ?

Re: how can config oneview to use proactiveHA feature in vcenter

Proactive HA requires OneView and OV4VC

So you will need to register vCenter with OneView (doing it via iLO will not work). You should be able to do it with the OneView Standard license

Thanks,

Doug
