  • How to prevent Commvault from trying to authenticate to individual VMware ESXi hosts

    Hi,

    In our environment, Commvault tries to authenticate to each individual VMware ESXi host.  It can't, because Commvault uses a domain account and the hosts aren't joined to the domain.  It does try vCenter next, so it successfully authenticates, but generates a lot of errors in the process.

    Is there a way to force Commvault to authenticate via vCenter?

    Can you share the error you're seeing? (Just so I can look this up properly.)

    Hi jszutarski,

    Here's the error I'm seeing in VMware.  It doesn't show up in Commvault's GUI at all, and I'm not entirely sure which log it would show up in.

    Thanks,

    Sheree
