Missing VSAN Config in VCenter Web Client

Hello,

i configured a cluster as a VSAN Cluster by PowerCLI.

In the vCenter WebClient I see this Cluster as VSAN Cluster

with 0 Byte capacit.

I would like to add some host capacity to Cluster.

but in Cluster->manage->configuration are no VSAN configuration

items.

has anybody seen such a behaviour?

(it's a nested environment - so not SR possible)

best regards,

mike

To make it more precise:

there should be "Virtual SAN" between "Services" and "Configuration" 😞

Good afternoon, has vSAN been enabled and all disks claimed?  Thank you, Zach.

Hello Zach,

as i wrote - VSAN is enabled.

I configured VSAN with RVC commands and have now a useable VSAN datastore but in vCenter Web Client  i can't see any VSAN related pages...

Hi Mike,

I've exactly the same problem. It occurs after a (VCSA) vCenter update from version 6.5.0.5300 build 5178943 (vCenter 6.5.0b) to 6.5.0.5500 build 5310538 (vCenter 6.5.0d).

My vSAN which is used for a VDI environment is still running properly, but I'm not able to view or change any vSAN Settings with the GUI.

Which version of vCenter do you use?

Regards,

Chris

Hi mike,

I solved the problem!

In the (external) PSC and vCenter admin page (https://fqdn:5480) the timezone was not correct in my case. After fixing the timezone I've rebooted the PSC and vCenter, then the vSAN config is displayed in the Web Client again.

What I've also done before was adding the vSAN license one again. Not sure if this task is really necessary.

Regards,

Chris

Correct timezone and NTP settings is very important now days!
