    Issues creating VSA cluster "Unknown value" error

    a_jacks0n Lurker

      Hi all,

       

      I'm in the process of evaluating vSphere with VSA and running into an issue during creation of the VSA cluster. On the final step of creating the VSA cluster, I get an error message "Cannot create VSA cluster: Unknown value."

       

      I'm setting up a two node cluster using a couple of HP ML310e Gen8's, using local storage and some extra networking via a quad-port NIC. Memory, CPU clock speed, and number of NICs is compliant with VSA requirements.

       

      I've already double checked things like default gateway on the Management Network, naming of the various port groups to comply with what vSphere/VSA expects, specific NIC teaming requirements, and increased maximum heap size to 256 & set evc.config.baseline=highest in dev.properties as I've got a couple of VMs running on the two ESX servers (just Domain Controller and vCenter VMs).

       

      Per the screenshots below, I've setup vSwitch0 and vSwitch1 as per VMware recommendations.

      On vSwitch0:

      Management Network and VSA-Front End portgroups are using native VLAN (192.168.1.0/24).

      VM Network is using VLAN 110 (192.168.110.0/24).

      vSwitch1 is fairly self-explanatory.

       

      Only unique thing is that I've created 'vCenter VM VLAN' on vSwitch0 as a Virtual Machine portgroup so that I could assign this to the vCenter VM NIC as I don't have routing/ACLs in place between VM Network (VLAN 110) and Management Network (native VLAN).

       

      Also, on ESX node # 2 I've got an issue with the physical NIC's associated with vmnic1 and vmnic3 (they seems to hang my Cisco switch each time I plug them in) so I've used the physical NIC's associated with vmnic4 and vmnic5 instead.

       

      I've already searched the various VSA related threads but to no avail.

      Hoping someone may be able to shed some light on this one.
