    Error repointing PSC

    tuu0312 Novice

      Hi everyone,

      I build a lab with these information:

      01 server installed DNS and Active Directory

      02 server installed only PSC, name: psc1.tuna.local, psc2.tuna.local

      01 server installed vcenter with extenal PSC pointed to psc1.

      But when i run the command to repoint psc from psc1 to psc2, i receive the error like this:

       

      C:\Program Files\VMware\vCenter Server\bin>cmsso-util repoint --repoint-psc psc2.tuna.local

      C:\Program Files\VMware\vCenter Server\python-modules\identity\vmkeystore.py:4:

          Greetings,

           

          which vSphere version are you using?

          Are the two PSCs part of the same SSO domain and the same SSO site?

          Were both PSCs joined to Active Directory?

          What version is the AD/DNS server?

            Hi peetz

            - I installed vcenter 6.0 on windows, not yet added any vsphere host

            - PSCs are in same site, agreement replication between PSCs are created

             

                 C:\Program Files\VMware\vCenter Server\vmdird>vdcrepadmin -f showservers -h psc1.tuna.local -u administrator -w P@ssw0rd

                 cn=psc1.tuna.local,cn=Servers,cn=Site1,cn=Sites,cn=Configuration,dc=vsphere,dc=local

             

                 C:\Program Files\VMware\vCenter Server\vmdird>vdcrepadmin -f showservers -h psc2.tuna.local -u administrator -w P@ssw0rd

                 cn=psc2.tuna.local,cn=Servers,cn=Site1,cn=Sites,cn=Configuration,dc=vsphere,dc=local

             

                 C:\Program Files\VMware\vCenter Server\vmdird>vdcrepadmin -f showpartners -h psc1.tuna.local -u administrator -w P@ssw0rd

                 ldap://psc2.tuna.local

             

                 C:\Program Files\VMware\vCenter Server\vmdird>vdcrepadmin -f showpartners -h psc2.tuna.local -u administrator -w P@ssw0rd

                 ldap://psc1.tuna.local

             

            - Both PSCs and vcenter are joined to AD

            - AD and DNS are installed in Windows server 2012 R2

              So the external PSCs are also Windows machines or VCSA based?

               

              Was the vCenter server ever installed with an embedded PSC that might not have been correctly removed?

                All machines are built in Windows Server 2012 R2.

                The vCenter is installed with an external PSC point to psc1 and I want to test to repoint to psc2.
