Applies to

  • HCI 1.6
  • HCI 1.7
  • NSX enabled on the Cluster where Compute nodes reside.

Description

  • When attempting to add a net-new or replacement compute node into an HCI cluster, the Easy Scale function of the NetApp Deployment Engine (NDE) fails to add the node and generates the error below:

Your network could not be detected. Ensure that this is the datacenter and cluster associated with your vCenter instance.

 

  • From the NDE logs:
