vSAN Health Check plug-in is not available and displays an error:
“The vCenter server is not responding, please check your setup (status code 503)”
Starting vsan-health service manually ended with general error:
“An error occured while starting service”
Group permission on /etc/vmware-vpx/ssl is correct.
This issue is not related with Dell OMI in this version of VSAN as it was in previous versions.
Re-generate the vsan configuration file:
- take a snapshot of your VC
- log into the VC and run following commands one by one:
rm -rf /etc/vmware-vsan-health/config.conf
chown vsan-health:root /etc/vmware-vsan-health/config.conf
- after that start vsan health-service:
/usr/lib/vmware-vmon/vmon-cli –start vsan-health
If Solution #1 didn’t resolve issue, check silent.json in /etc/vmware-vsan-health/. If this file is empty you can remove the file and attempt to start the service once again.
P.S. Thanks VMware support.
