Hi,

Just upgraded to vCenter and ESXi 6.0 U2 and everything went with out any problems (almost) Smiley Happy

But we are also having this issue and we are running on vCenter version 6.0 U2 Build: 3634793 (Windows)

VMWARE properly do not think that this is an important or critical error since there still hasen't been made a fix or workaround for this issue. WHY ????

Are VMWARE going to be "MS" on this issue? Hope not MS never fixes anything Smiley Happy

Having same issue here with my fresh install (failed upgrade 5.1 to 6U2).  Mine appears to be related to the nimble and netapp plugins I have installed.

I am on 6.0 U2 build 3634794 of the VCenter appliance.  I'm experiencing these same symptoms on a fresh install.   Ive tried both suggestions of setting a VCenter server managed address and adjusting the alarm settings, neither have worked.  While the alarms are harmless, it's pretty frustrating that VMware has yet to produce a solution after this issue has seemed to go on for quite a while.  I have an SR open, and a call with VMware today.  If they produce any recommendations that seem to help I'll make sure and post them here.

I may found  a possible  solution for the Windows-Installation (not fully tested)

go to "C:\ProgramData\VMware\vCenterServer\cfg\sca\services\" Alter all .properties wich contains "controlScriptPath=dummy_path"

Comment out these line to "#controlScriptPath=dummy_path"  Make sure, you only change files  wich contains "controlScriptPath=dummy_path"

Restart the service "VMware Service Control Agent"

I've tested this solution, work in parts, but not sorted. there is a workaround that is:

1) Logged in to VC using thick Client. Go to Alarm Settings --> Health status changed alarm --> Edit Settings --> Triggers --> Changed Status from unset to Warning.

2) In advanced options on the same page --> Select argument as data center name --> Operator as equal to --> Value is Data Center name.

3) Click on Actions Tab --> Select warning to alert and Warning to OK as once.

4) Restart the vCenter Server Services.

I have solved this issue in a vCenter appliance apllying a VMware Knowledge Base article, KB 2144950.

The article suggests to update the 'cloudvm-ram-size' to desired heap size in MB.  What's everyone setting theirs to?

What was the value you set for cloudvm-ram-size?  The default for vsphere-client seems to be 1472 MB.

Hey Lukehsieh, did you ever figure out the value in MB to change vsphere-client to?
