SnapCenter Server 4.6 DR Failover to alternative host fails host key error

Last Updated:

Applies to

SnapCenter Server 4.6


When testing or applying the DR failover from one SnapCenter Server to another, the following errors are seen in the SMCore job log:
Failed to get the host key. Error: Data at the root level is invalid. Line 1, position 1.Source: System.Xml
Stack Trace:    at System.Xml.XmlTextReaderImpl.Throw(Exception e)

It's also possible that the DR seems to run fine, but SnapCenter is not functional after the "failover".
