VCenter 7.0 - cannot add host

Running VCenter 7.0 and I am trying to add an ESXi-7.0.0-15843807-standard host. I enter all the correct credentials and addition process starts but then abruptly ends with:

A specified parameter was not correct: info.productVersion

Anybody seen this and know why this is occurring and a possible fix?

Just a thought:

  • are both vCSA as well as ESXi running the GA build, i.e.no beta builds?
  • did you already assign licenses to either vCenter, or the host (which editions)?

Hi and yes both are the latest GA builds. No license assigned, brand new install and eval license

Bump.

I'm encountering the same error. New Install of VMware ESXi 7.0.0 build-15843807 on a Gigabyte TRX40 AORUS XTREME with an AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3970X. vCenter Appliance is licensed and accepted other hosts to be added to the newly created datacenter (other hosts were ESXi 6.0.0 5050593 and ESXi 6.0.0 3620759). It seems like there is an issue with this newer 7.0 build.
