vCenter Permisiion denied after adding Nodes with DNS name

Hello guys,

i´ve deployed 2 nodes to a new cluster and they where added with the IP instead thr DNS name. So i followed the way the support told me:

- shut down OVC

- set ESXi in maintenance mode

- disconnect host

- remove host from inventory

- add host with DNS name

-exit maintenance mode

-start OVC

- issuing the commands dsv-update-vcenter, dsv-digitalvault-init, dsv-digitalvault-update-vcenter, dsv-update-vcenter

So it worked on one of the OVCs but the other one is always showing up with the following error ($SVTLOG):

2019-10-22T12:19:09.147Z ERROR 0x7f33de609700 [:] [control.controlplane] controlplane.cpp:1712 Unable to locate the user session for Node 'ae8c3542-e086-251e-303d-4a19b079fd4b' which has vCenter Server 'vCenter-IP' from the sessions provided '1|20:vCenter:47:{SVT-T-TAG}34875b0d-f9da-4574-bca8-58836288dea6|'

I already issued the commands a few time but with the same result. Do i maybe miss to enter them in a certain order?

Cheers,

Nick

Re: vCenter Permisiion denied after adding Nodes with DNS name

Hello Kevin,

what version of OmniStack are you running? There is a command to rename the node itself

svt-host-rename (vSphere only)

Syntax
svt-host-rename --from oldhostname --to newhostname [common-options]

You can find the information here: HPE OmniStack 3.7.10 Command Reference Guide  (Page 56)

Did you try the update vCenter a second time?

 

Please let me know if you`ve got any questions and I`m happy to assist!

With best regards

Re: vCenter Permisiion denied after adding Nodes with DNS name

Try adding the host back by IP 

svt-host-rename --from  hostname --to  ipaddress 

and then by DNS 

 svt-host-rename --from ipaddress  --to hostname

This will remove the ESXI from vc and add it back by either ip or dns name

Re: vCenter Permisiion denied after adding Nodes with DNS name

In which command are you getting the error? there is no need to run dsv-update-vcenter twice if you already did it. 

I would start with dsv-digitalvault-init first and make sure this works. Then make sure you use an IP address instead of fqdn when running dsv-update-vcenter

The error is showing up since i readded the host by DNS. I also tried the command one by one but the error shows up every second in $SVTLOG.

Cheers,

Re: vCenter Permisiion denied after adding Nodes with DNS name

Try the suggestion before of adding the node again by IP and then run the command to change name. Let us know how it goes.
