HP P4000 SAN application managed snapshots vcenter login

When I tried to create an application managed snapshots in CMC v.10.5 I get an error message

 

Error retrieving volume list from application server at 192.168.2.10: ILED: Connection to VC Server failed. Cannot complete login due to an incorrect user name or password

 

I've tested the tcp/ip ping is working on the node, do I need to supply the CMC with vcenter login crediential?

Hi

Try running the application aware snapshot service as local administrator on the Vcenter.

Its called "Pegasus CIM Object Manager"

look at this post

Re: HP P4000 SAN application managed snapshots vcenter login

Are you  having issues with the Application Aware Snapshot Manager failing after upgrade to VCenter to 5.1? 

There is a known issue with the administrative credentials of VCenter not having the correct authority to work with the Pegasus CIM Object Manager service correctly.

 

If so let me know the error codes I cant take a look.

Re: HP P4000 SAN application managed snapshots vcenter login

hmm had the same right now with 5.5 and 10.5... the solution was posted above.

Create a local user with admin rights on vcenter and change the Service User account of the service discrption above. to this user. its a problem of loging in of the Snapshot engine to the vcenter. With local user there arent enought rights to take the snapshots. HP StoreVirtual VSS CIM Server

Hi.

 

Change the logon for the The Pegasus CIM Object Manager service to the same logon you're using for the VirtualCenter Server service. That worked for me since 10.5.

 

Cheers
