Virtual Storage Console for VMware (VSC) Error: "Unable to contact VASA server" when registering VASA Provider

Last Updated:

Applies to

  • Virtual Storage Console for VMware (VSC) 6.2P2
  • VASA Provider 6.2


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/
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/]; nested exception is 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'.
