    Problems setting up vCloud Extender

    andreaspa Enthusiast

      Hi,

       

      I'm setting up vCloud Extender in our lab in order to familiarize with it before setting it up in production, and I'm really banging my head against the wall with some strange issues with the Replication Manager.

       

      These are the below versions:

      vCD: 9.5.0.10264774

      vCD Extender: 1.1.0.2 (cx-cloud-service)

       

      Deploying the vCD Extender appliance goes fine, and while running the setup wizard the first failure occurs on step 7 - Activate Replicator. However, it seems like the issue lies within the Replication Manager appliance.

       

      This is what I can see from the replication manager log files (/opt/vmware/h5/manager/log/manager.log):

      What I also notice is that the Replication Manager appliance doesnt respond to ping as default, while the rest of the appliances does this. Strange!

       

      Also, the GUI gives me this error:

       

      Error Code 500 Failed to register H4Replicator, Cause [Unable to reach manager service]
