Cannot connect vCenter and vCloud to VBS

Post by PikesMilan »

This is in relation to Case #05444289

We recently had an ESXi host disconnection that hosted the VBS VM.
After recovering the host, it was noted that we cannot re-connect the VBS to both vCSA and vCD.
No network modifications were done in the environment and a snippet of the logs we found after the error prompts are shown below:

Access to vCenter on port 443 from VBS work and it is listening on that port as well.
The cert was not changed on the server either. Both machines can ping each other and the account used to add the vCenter and vCloud to VBS is enabled and has all the required permissions.

Any ideas? I know that the logs are quite self explanatory but as already stated, no network modification was recently applied to the environment.

Hi Pikes

Thanks for the case. I see, that you have opened it 20 minutes ago.
Please give our support engineer some time to analyze the logs.

And please provide the entire debug logs to the case. It will be the first question of the support engineer :)

Re: Cannot connect vCenter and vCloud to VBS

Hello,
As Fabian mentioned, give our Engineers some time. Things to check, well the basics really:
  • Can the Veeam Server, and proxies, ping over FQDN to the VMware Environment?
  • Can the VMware Environment, meaning vCenter and ESXi ping over FQDN the Veeam Infrastructure?
  • Host was down, perhaps some NTP issues happened. Can you make sure that both the Veeam Server, and the ESXi that failed are in NTP sync with the rest of the environment?
  • On Veeam itself, under Infrastructure, have you tried to go to Properties under your VCSA, introduce user/pass, etc?
  • If nothing has changed in SSL on any of the VMware environments you will save big time on not doing the lsdoctor procedure
Hope our Engineers find the issue soon.

Thanks!
