I am trying to deploy vSAN File Services on a platform that isnt connected to the internet, when I try to manually deploy the agent, I select the files downloaded from the VMware site, and then if I click Next...nothing happens it just hangs.
Is there are way to do this via cli etc? If I place the OVF files in a datastore/content library, or has someone seen this happen elsewhere?
TIA for any help.
From my understanding reading the instructions the vCenter downloads the appliance when it has connectivity to the internet, I am unable to give the vCenter access to the internet.
When I first try to enable the service I do get an error saying:
Failed to extract the requested data. Check vSphere CLient logs for details.
Then this is where I can choose to upload the files and it hangs.
Okay you learn something new everyday! Read about that just a few minutes ago. So let´s check the vsphere-client log only.
Can you attach this one?: /storage/log/vmware/vsphere-ui/logs/vsphere_client_virgo.log
Maybe you were attaching the whole bundle.
Unfortunately due to the nature of this platform I cannot post any logs.
I can report however that after a reboot of the vCenter I managed to deploy the VSAN FS appliances, however, due to an issue on the network I then had to disable VSAN File Services, when I now try to redeploy I get the same hanging error, and a reboot (multiple) doesnt solve the issue.
When the OVF is uploaded successfully, would you know where it is stored?
I found a PowerCLI command https://developer.vmware.com/docs/powercli/latest/vmware.vimautomation.storage/commands/add-vsanfile...
This doesnt work for me because the URL is an issue, however I am thinking if I can manually put the ovf files in the location the vCenter GUI checks against, it should let me progress, I just cannot find anywhere that documents that location.
I’ve only managed to get it to deploy once.
vDS I’m deploying to, but I’m all honesty I don’t even get that far.
The Virgo log reports this when I click next:
