Error #1009 vSphere Web Client

Error #1009 vSphere Web Client

Recently I have been having some issues with plugins while working in my lab.  I recently wrote this article “Error 1063 vSphere Web Client” which documents how to disable selected plugins.  This fixed worked for a little while, but recently I have started receving a similar error but with the Error #1009 vSphere Web Client.  I tried the fix in my previous article again, however when I tried to go into the Client Plug-Ins area of the vSphere Web Client, I received the #1009 error everytime. The first thing I tried was to (obviously) Google the error, but I couldn’t find any resolution.  A few people have experienced this error on the communities forum but no one had a fix for it.  I phoned a friend in GSS, and they told me about an issue with cached objects that are stored in a SerenityDB folder.  They aparantly have bad references […]

Error 1063 vSphere Web Client

I have recently been upgrading all our lab to vSphere 6.0 and have come across an interesting error everytime I login to the vSphere Web Client. Error 1063 vSphere Web Client The error is “An internal error has occured – Error #1063”. I actually migrated my previous version of vCenter 5.5 to vCenter 6.0 using the inbuilt upgrade.  This actually deploys a new vCenter Server Appliance with version 6.0 and migrates all the information from the previous appliance, including all the plugins. I would receive this error everytime I tried to click the Actions menu on any object.  Didn’t matter whether it was a host or a VM, this error always popped up.  Clicking yes never solved it, I couldn’t do anything. Then I started thinking about the upgrade.  I wonder if a plugin that was installed on the previous 5.5 version had been migrated across and was causing a […]

upgrading vcenter appliance 5.5 to 6.0

Upgrading vCenter Appliance 5.5 to 6.0 – Migration failed error

Today working in our vCloud Air Technical Marketing Lab I was upgrading the vCenter Server Appliance from version 5.5 to 6.0 and I came across an interesting issue.  Totally by my own creation, but interesting none the less. First of all, I want to thank @anthonyspiteri for his excellent article showing the steps on how to upgrade your vCenter Server Appliance.  Read it here The major difference with this upgrade is that you don’t just update the exisiting vCenter Appliance like in previous versions.  The upgrade wizard actually deploys a whole new appliance and migrates all the data from the previous version.  Its pretty cool and when you configure it correctly, works very well. Upgrading vCenter Appliance 5.5 to 6.0 The error I experienced was about half way through the migration, when it failed with the error “Migration Failed”.  It also failed to download the support bundle logs too. Turns […]

vSphere Replication Unable to obtain SSL certificate – Bad Server Response

Working on upgrading our vCloud Air TMM lab today, I came across an interesting error that had me baffled for quite some time. I was upgrading the vSphere Replication Appliance from version 5.8 to version 6.0 and everything went smoothly.  After logging out and clearing the cache for the web browser (as documented here), I came across a new field that needs to be configured for the vSphere Replication Appliance to work.  Its the LookupService Address.  This didn’t exist in the previous version, but easy I thought.  Lets enter the vCenter server FQDN and away we go. vSphere Replication Unable to obtain SSL certificate Then I received the error: Unable to obtain SSL certificate: Bad server response; is a LookupService listening on the given address? If you perform a quick google, you are reffered to this KB article, but DNS wasn’t the problem, I could ping both the long FQDN […]

vCloud Air vSphere client update

vCloud Air vSphere Client update released

Today VMware released the vCloud Air vSphere Client update version 1.5.1.  This release doesn’t have any new features, but does fix some issues that have been found in the previous version. The issues resolved that this release resolve are: Certificate requirement While establishing an SSL connection to vCloud Air, the plug-in verifies the SSL certificate of the site. As part of the installation process, you must download the certificate from https://vchs.vmware.com and add it to the trusted keystore of the vSphere Web Client. If you do not add the certificate, you will be unable to register your vCloud Air account with the plug-in or connect to vCloud Air. Internationalization The plug-in now accepts non-ASCII characters in text fields and displays names with non-ASCII characters correctly. Smaller package size The plug-in package size has been reduced significantly, to approximately 10 MB. To read the full release notes follow: https://www.vmware.com/support/hybridcloud/doc/vcaplugin_151_rel_notes.html Please remember when […]
