VMware SRA & 9.5 - "Invalid XML returned from SRA..."

Folks

 

I'm trying to setup a new VMware SRM solution (SRM 4.1.1) using a couple of P4500s running SANiQ 9.5.

 

I'm getting the message "Invalid XML returned from SRAL Failed to get attribute 'id' for node 'Initiator'." when trying to configure the SRA, the array is detected fine though. I'm using the SRM version 1-4 SRA that's downloaded along with the 9.5 update, there was no earlier version on the servers that needed uninstalled.

 

Suggestions would be most welcome.

Just a quick update in case anyone else hits this issue.

 

The problem turned out to be that we hadn't entered the vSphere servers' IQNs in the CMC server section.

 

We have a security requirement to use CHAP authentication for iSCSI sessions so hadn't bothered entering the IQN details but these are used by the SRA to identify the servers so need to be entered (and in lower case as well apparently).
