vSAN File Service Configuration Fails with "General vSAN error. com.vmware.vsan.clustermgmt.fileservice.msg.dvsconfigissue"

Jump to solution

Hi,

I am trying to test vSAN File Services in my lab and I am getting the above error during the configuration.

I am running vCenter Server version 7.0 build 16620013 and my 3 nested hosts are running ESXi version 7.0 build 16324942.

For completeness, this cluster was deployed on 6.5u1 and was then upgraded to 6.7u3 and finally to 7.0.

vSAN is configured and working just fine in all other respects.

I have created a vDS port group specifically for vSAN File Services. The error is suggesting this is the issue, but it's just a standard port group.

I have created A Records (with PTR's) in my DNS for the 3 appliances.

The error appears within about 5 seconds of starting the reconfigure task.:

Does any one have any ideas?

As always, any help will be greatly appreciated.

Many Thanks,

M

Doh, school boy error... Note to self...Read the prerequisites TWICE, check the system meets them and then RECHECK!.. 🙂

Turns out that my vDS had NOT been upgraded from 6.5.0.!! I upgraded it to 7.0.0 and the reconfigure task runs as expected.

I feel a bit silly, but at the same time I expect the wizard to have checked the prerequisites and this should have been flagged.

deppingTheBobkin​ Would one of you gents be able to flag this to engineering for review in a future release?

Thanks.

Hello MC1903

Thanks for highlighting this and also fair play to you for figuring it out faster than your average bear likely could :smileygrin:

We will aim to open a feature request PR for this this week (weather permitting as I am just back from holidays and likely going to have backlog of duties).

Being it part of the pre-check/wizard aside, I feel that at the least the error message could provide more information than it did here e.g. stating to update the vDS before re-attempting as opposed to fairly generic 'dvsconfigissue' (but at least it points in the right direction).
