Re: Cannot add vCenter plugin

Hi all,

I’m trying to install ScaleIO version vCenter plugin on VCSA 6.0 U3. Everything looks OK, but when I log into vCenter, there is no plugin to be found… Any ideas on how to troubleshoot? Thanks!

More info from vCenter’s vpxd.log, looks like plugin installation is failing with locale error:
