vxlan - preparation not working / vmknic not created

Hello,

i´m trying to get vxlan working within a vcloud director 5.1 environment.

Within vshield manager i configured the sgement id and in the next step i try

to create the vxlan under connectivity. ProviderDC is not yet created.

I can select the cluster and my desired switch and start the installation. This takes

about 5 minutes and ends in state "not ready" and error.

During setup the portgroup is created but no vmknic within this.

On my esx hosts i see events "vib-module for agent not installed on host 172.... (vshield-vxlan-service)"

and "Agent activating" which end with error.

Tried basics like creating new dvSwitch, reboot Hosts, reinstall everything...

I upgraded my networking & security appliance to latest version as stated here:

http://www.virtualizationteam.com/virtualization-vmware/networking-virtualization-vmware/vcloud-netw...

I also tried to install the agentpackage vxlan.zip manual via esxcli on all of the 3 hosts but still no success...

Anyone an idea where i can get deeper error message to find the solution, or perhaps a hint to the solution?

Regards,

Patrick

I have also installed the 5.1.2a patch but I am still seeing the same problem.  Here is the error message I see on the host:

Invalid format for VIB module at  (vShield-VXLAN-service) error 10.201.4.132 com.vmware.vim.eam

I have also tried loading the VIB manually and found numerous workarounds on the web but nothing has helped.  Any ideas?

I got some feedback from another post.  I didn't have my FQDN set correctly on my vcenter server.  It works now.

Upgrading to vCloud Director 5.1.2 & vCloud Networking & Security 5.1.2a then installing the VXLAN VIB manually has got VXLAN going for me on several occasions. I have as well documented the full procedure including screen shots at:http://www.virtualizationteam.com/virtualization-vmware/networking-virtualization-vmware/vxlan/vib-m...

Hope this help.
