vCloud 5.1 Storage profiles not showing up

Jump to solution

Has anyone had an issue getting vCenter storage profiles to show up in vCloud?  I have tried the "refresh storage profiles" button on the vCenter but they do not show up, I have also tried restarting the vCD services.

If they were not enable and you created your PVDC, the Storage Profiles will not show up. On the vSphere Resources view on the left, it does not show ALL your Storage Profiles that's actually available but only the ones you've assigned to your PVDC.

Try clicking into the PVDC and then under Storage Profiles, click the "+" button and see if you can see all the Storage Profiles in your vCenter Server and you should be able to add them. Once you do, then you'll see them under the vSphere Resources view on the left pane. Attached is a screenshot

Did you enable Storage Profiles in vCenter? By default it's disabled, it'll still allow you to create a Storage Profile but the actual service is disabled. If it's enabled, then they should appear when you create your PVDC and if not, you should be able to just click on "Refresh Storage Profiles" on the particulare vCenter Server in vCloud Director

It's enabled and licensed on all my hosts. It was not enabled when I built the pvdc but I don't think I should have to delete and rebuild it to get the storage profiles.

I also noticed on the last two install I have done that no storage profiles show up after multiple rescans but new profiles show up.  This causes me to delete existing and recreate them which is not a big deal but I wish I knew what I was doing to cause this behivor.
