i have the following errors in my Capacity Planner installation:
09/12/2008 15:59:07:2:2952: Performance: Collecting performance for system 'PHEVOS:43'
I am extremely interrested in a solution, because I left a non functional installation at my customer!
Here my experiences:
After a complete new installation of the capacity planner, the same problem occur.
When you start the performance collection manualy, it works.
When you delete the mailfunctioning scheduled jobs and create them new, you can start them manualy with Options->Jos->Run Now, that also works.
When the jobs are started by the scheduler, the "type mismatch" error occur.
If anybody has a hint, please tell me, it's realy urgent!
both jobs and each host is affected.
But I found the reason and a solution for my problem.
The "type mismatch" error is caused by the remote configuration of the dashboard. I assume, that the dashboard tries to configure the Data Manager, but that fails and the result is a bad/not configured scheduled task.
With the following lines the desaster starts:
09/15/2008 12:50:13:1:1320: DataSync: Started Remote Configuration Job Task ID=226
09/15/2008 12:52:23:0:1320: Remote-Config.SendToDashboard: Send Data Failed with Error Number = 12002 and Error Description = The request has timed out.
09/15/2008 12:52:23:1:1320: DataSync: Finished Remote Configuration Job Task ID=226
After that error, each try to configure the scheduler is responded by an error:
09/15/2008 12:59:06:0:3948: ERROR: An unexpected error occurred! Module = VMware Capacity Planner Data Manager Function = GetJobTaskSetting (219:PerfForceRedisc.4B3E73D6-0FD6-3240-97EF-CF4C01A74730|219) Source = vcpDataMgr Error = Subscript out of range(9:0:1000009)

If the scheduler starts the jobs the "type mismatch" error occur.
I have disabled the remote configuration option.
recreate the schedule tasks.
