Issue

When trying to register VASA Provider with VSC, the following error message occurs:
NVPF-00014:  Unable to contact VASA server on host of https://<IP>:9083/files/dist/vp-gui-vvol.zip
 
The nvpf.log files display the following error message:
[DEBUG] Target method failed for RemoteInvocation: method name 'checkVvolsPresent'; parameter types []
org.springframework.remoting.RemoteAccessException: Could not access HTTP invoker remote service at [https://https://<IP>:9083/files/dist/vp-gui-vvol.zip:9083/remoting/GuiService]; nested exception is java.net.UnknownHostException: https
    at org.springframework.remoting.httpinvoker.HttpInvokerClientInterceptor.convertHttpInvokerAccessException(HttpInvokerClientInterceptor .java:216)
 

Note: The 'https://' prefix is repeated in the connection string (https://https://<IP>:9083...), resulting in the second 'https' being interpreted as the hostname to be resolved and causing java to throw the exception for the unresolved 'host'.
