I am having an issue when connecting VRO to VCD Using Vcloud Direcotr plugin 9.1, When adding a connection to VCloud Director, the workflow hangs and actually locks up VRO, the only way I can recover is to delete the vCLoud plugin and reboot the host. Looking at the VRO server.log it gets a return ffrom VCD for all the supported API versions, but then just stops there. The next step should be to get an authentication token. This has happened on VRO versions 7.4 and 7.5, and has worked in most of my VRO environments at one time, but the usual result is this failure.
The VRO appliances are authanticated against vSphere PSCs (behind a load balancer), and this behaviour has been seen in both standalone and clusters instances of VRO.
Anyone seen anything similar?
What connection properties did you enter for the vCD Endpoint configuration workflow? Can you please share screenshots about the configurations?
And did you import the certificate from vCD in advance?
I imported the cert from our VCD Load Balanced VIP first then I used the following settings when adding the VCD Connection:
URL: BaseURL Taken from Vcloud Director
Max COnnections: 600
Connection timeout: 20000ms
Cache Timeout : Blank
API Version: 30.0 (This is VCloud Director 9.10)
Session Mode: Shared Session
Use SAML Auth: No
Username: either local to vcd or domain account, both with System Administrator role
I have today rebuilt the cluster and got it working, the only difference is the "Host Name" of the nodes in the cluster I left as the IP Address. Ive always felt it was this setting that was breaking this plugin, but I cant explain why
