Our VDP server had some DNS problems. After we solved them, we've found there is no way to manage the appliance through VCenter WebClient. Though the VDP plugin is installed there, our VDP appliance does not show up in the appliances list, thoough there is no way to get to manage it.
The VDP appliance is running fine, backups are getting launched and we get the email reports for the backups, integrity check tasks run fine, the only problem we find is we can't manage the VDP appliance.
Have you tried rebooting the vApp? How do your NSLOOKUP results come back, are there issues there?
I'm not familiar with this, as I'm currently setting this up for my environment. I hope something here helps.
Hi, my problem was that I modified the "Notes" field in the VM, and that caused the VDP drop down list in the vSphere web client to appear empty.
The Notes filed must ONLY contain this text: "This is the VMware vSphere Data Protection Appliance"
I hope this helps.
