Trying to reset Inventory Service Data Provider - no vpx product

Jump to solution

I'm trying to solve an issue where the vSphere Web Client shows an emtpy inventory. Also, searching the inventory through the Flex client doesn't work. So, I tried to follow this article: VMware Knowledge Base . Unfortunately, when I perform step 4 there is no vpx product! I think this could well be the source of the problem.

My question: is there any way to recreate the vpx provider?

Some info about the environment:

  • vCenter Server is build on a Windows Cluster with an external Windows PSC.
  • vCenter Server 6.0 U3i

If vpx provider doesn't exist it basically means inventory service is not registered with component manager.

You will have to follow the below KB article: VMware Knowledge Base

Thanks for your reply.

I also found that article but I didn't want to create a new database. However, I will try to re-register the Inventory Service with the Component Manager. To be continued...

Re-registerering was indeed the solution. A nice bonus was that searching through the old flex client now also works. Thanks!
