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:
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?
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?
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.
