Refresh Hardware Information - vCentre 5

Veeam Logoby IOWDave » Mon Dec 12, 2011 12:32 pm

Good Afternoon,

We upgraded VC to version 5 over the course of the weekend and are no longer seeing the "Refresh hardware information" log entries. As I understand it the events are generated by the collectors polling for new hardware events. Has anyone else experienced this issue and, if so, can you please let me know if the API changed in vSphere 5 to supress the logging of the events or if this is indicative of a problem with the polling of the hardware?

Thanks,
Dave.

Hi Dave,

Unfortunately the lack of Refresh Hardware events in this case does mean a problem in gathering data from vCenter.

This is one of the reasons that we do not claim vSphere 5 support for nworks 5.6 - only our up-coming 5.7 release fully and natively supports vSphere 5 API in all departments.

However the good news is that our 5.7 release is VERY close - it is difficult to promise exact dates, even this close - but we are in final QA, and the release date is days not weeks away.

We do have a Release Candidate build of the 5.7 MP available, if you would like to install that and restore your monitoring - alternatively, the actual release is so close you may prefer to wait for the GA code.

Any queries on the above please let me know,

Regards,
Alec

Good Morning,

Thanks for the information. We will wait until the GA release of the latest version as it looked very interesting on the webinar.

Regards,
Dave.

Tsk Tsk, Gostev - always with rumours and gossip! :P

But there may be some truth - nworks 5.7 release is not days away any more. Now it's merely hours.... :D
