Collector not starting anymore (V2.4.0)

Hi,

I just recognized that our collector is "inactive" in the Console and so I tried restarting it. I stumbled across the network bug and fixed it, but I am still not able to get the collector running.

I found the following interesting things in the logs:

2020-06-03 07:14:13,440 ERROR [qtp204805934-15] c.v.s.c.a.RegistrationProviderImpl [RegistrationProviderImpl.java:116] [] While testing connectivity using provided connectivity settings [ConnectivityConfig[hostnameValidationEnabled=false, proxy=172.x.x.x :3128]], got response code 500 and response is Couldn't perform test registration due to: UploadException: Failed to upload due to exception >>> HttpRequestException: Couldn't send request>>> HttpRequestException: Couldn't send request. >>> ExecutionException: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Host name may not contain blanks

Any ideas?

Best regards,

Sven

Hello Sven,

As per the below error please check if the DNS setting are valid on Skyline Appliance.

Steps:-

  1. Login to Skyline Console with root.
  2. Check for Network setting by typing below text.
  3. /opt/vmware/share/vami/vami_config_net

With the new version, Skyline validate if it's able to reach below URL over port 443.

vcsa.vmware.com

vapp-updates.vmware.com

Please make ensure the endpoints accounts is not expired and password is up to date.

I doublechecked the Network config and the Proxy Settings. Looks perfect.

The Connection to the endpoints also works.

What can I do now?
