  • 1.  vCenter server linked mode issue

    Posted Apr 26, 2020 03:51 PM

    I had a vCenter server vCenter02 with 6.5 version(recently upgraded from 6.0 to 6.5).

    After upgraded, i have installed new vcenter(VCSA02) and added to the existing domain(SSO) for linked mode. After completion when i connect to the Old vCEnter server(vCEnter02).

    i am not able to see the new vcenter server under inventory as below.

    but when i connect to VCSA02 vcenter(new vcenter), i am able to access the both the vcenter servers as shown below.

    When i checked the system configuration from VCSA02, i am able to see both the nodes active state when i connect from VCSA02.

    But when i connect to old vCenter(vCenter02), under the nodes its showing as degrade state.

    Note: Both i have logged in with vsphere.local administrator account only,

    What might be the cause of issue and why its not showing both the vcenter servers.

    This issue can occur if you do not have Administrator privileges on the server. Are both vCenter is appliance or one on windows platform and other one VCSA appliance? And the one showing degraded what it is shows? Also, Can share the complete screenshot and both vCenter version and build number..

    Both are vcenter appliance, embedded PSC. and i logged in using local domain(vsphere.local administrator).

    Both has same username and password.

    While connecting from old vcenter, i am facing issue. but from new vcsa, i am able to see the both.

    Verify DNS using nslookup, Correct any invalid DNS entries for the vCenter Server.
