Issue

SnapCenter fails to backup VMDKs due to a storage resolution failure 


The following errors might be shown in Job Details page of SnapCenter GUI.


Activity 'Storage Discovery' failed with error: Failed to resolve the storage associated with the VMware virtual disks <VMDK_UUID>.
Activity 'Send EMS Messages' failed with error: Unable to find storage system for given resources. EMS message instead sent to the storage connection accessible by this user:<SVM_NAME>



The vmcontrol.log will indicate that SnapCenter Server is not configured with NDB/SCV althought the host is already added -
