Applies to

  • Element OS 9.x
  • Element OS 10.x
  • VMWare vCenter 6.x
  • vCenter Plugin 3.x 

Issue

  • When creating a storage container and datastore using the vCenter Plugin for VVols on SolidFire, the datastore shows as 0 bytes in vCenter after creation.
  • Storage container creation with datastore completes, but the resulting datastore shows as 0 bytes rather than the selected value.
  • ESX host(s) connected to the datastore show SSL errors connecting to the cluster in their vvold logs within /var/log.
