    View Admin console issue after upgrade to 6.2

    fafa24 Hot Shot

      Dear All,


      Today I upgraded my View environment from View 6.02 to View 6.2. The upgrade went fine without any problem. I had to upgrade View Composer, a connection server and a security server.


      However I have issues with the View Administrator console.


      When I log in I receive this error


      com.vmware.vim.vmomi.client.common.UnexpectedStatusCodeException: Unexpected status code: 404


      However I can refresh the page and View logs me in. All appears to be working, but before the upgrade I disabled my pools. I wanted to re-enable it, but I'm getting this error.


      java.lang.IllegalStateException: View API connection not initialized


      There are some settings in the View Administrator console I can change. There is no error in the event viewer on the connection server.


      Do you have any idea what the problem is? It seems like a Java issue. With View 6.02 I have had no issue with the View Administrator console.

          I ran into this problem as well. I found (after installing a replica server and WinDiff comparing the installation destination folders) that there were several files and folders missing from the "C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware View\Server\broker\webapps\view-vlsi\WEB-INF" subfolders . I copied the missing files, restarted the VMware Horizon View Connection Server service and all seems to be working now. Interesting that I was never notified during the upgrade that anything was problematic.

            I resolved the issue with the help of VMware support to install a replica server and then delete the old connection server. This was a good solution for us because we could also upgrade the OS to Win2012.


            But actually we never found out why the problem occured.

              Thank you for posting this. We just ran into this same issue on a Horizon 7.5 to 7.52 upgrade on a clustered pair of Connection servers. The upgrade wiped out a bunch of files on both servers.


              Luckily we had a similar environment that we just upgraded (7.3 to 7.52 that upgraded successfully last week) and were able to copy files from that Connection Server to the cluster.


              Good times
