Timeout with vCenter from WFA 2.1

Currently Being Moderated

I'm trying to add vcenter 5.0 as a datasource for WFA 2.1 at a customer environment.   I get a timeout (after the 600 seconds) with this error:


Command '$Uri = @($input)[0] ; E:\wfa\jboss\..\PoSH\profile.ps1;Invoke-WfaCommand -Script './vc_13814179598042044799709485333259.ps1 '' timed out


It works fine in my lab (of course).


The vcenter client works fine from the WFA server with the same credentials.    Any ideas?  Thanks.

          You can try to connect to the VCenter directly by using the VMware PowerCLI installed on the WFA server. This will let us know if things work without WFA in picture.


    1. Open a VMWare Power CLI console. It should be available as a Desktop short-cut on the WFA server. If it isn't open Windows  PowerCLI ISE or console and type the following:


    PS C:\Users\Administrator> Add-PSSnapin VMware.VimAutomation.Core

    PS C:\Users\Administrator>



    PS C:\Users\Administrator> Connect-VIServer -Server -Protocol https -Port 443 -User Administrator -Password netapp



    Name                           Port  User                         

    ----                           ----  ----                                       443   Administrator                


    Use the same VCenter Hostname, Port as you have provided in VC Datasource.


    3. Run a command to see it can fetch some data               

    PS C:\Users\Administrator> Get-VM



    Name                 PowerState Num CPUs Memory (MB)

    ----                 ---------- -------- -----------

    14jan                PoweredOff 2        8192      

    AD                   PoweredOn  1        4096      

    Data ONTAP-v Inst... PoweredOff 1        1024      

    Guarda-vm8           PoweredOn  4        12288



    Let me know if this works fine, Our next step depends on the outcome of this result.
