#30 vSAN witness not working with 17068872

  • vMan • Nov 17, 2020

    Has anyone tried the release 17068872 as a witness?

    I am not sure if my issue is related to the latest release or some kind of strange corruption that occurred to my vSAN cluster / vCenter due to the PSOD from bug #8

    Long story short, when I updated my vDS to 7.0 it caused the Pi to PSOD. (I was running 16966451).

    After installing the PI with 17068872 and trying to “configure a stretch cluster” I get the following error in the HTML5 GUI at the review section..

    “Failed to extract the requested data. Check vSphere Client logs for details.”

    I also tried to configure it over PowerCLI with Set-VsanClusterConfiguration

    But got this error:

    VSAN runtime fault on server ‘/VIServer=vman.sso\administrator@vman.sso:443/’: Unknown server error: ”. See the event log for details..

    Has 17068872 been tested as a witness successfully?

    I can no longer find VMware-VMvisor-Installer-7.0.0-16966451.aarch64.iso so I can’t try to roll back!

    I switched back to Standard Switch's to see if it was a VDS issue but I still get “Failed to extract the requested data. Check vSphere Client logs for details.” when trying to add the witness to the cluster. (Using 17068872)

    How can I obtain VMware-VMvisor-Installer-7.0.0-16966451.aarch64.iso to try again?
