Re: Cannot add vCenter plugin

Hi all,

I’m trying to install ScaleIO version 2.0.1.2 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:

ICN Search Response Filter – Doesn’t work with more than 200 search results

We have implemented a plug-in to display FoldersFilledin property in a column of ICN search results. The plug-in uses /p8/search response filter to fetch this value for result set and and displays it in result set by updating JSONResultSetResponse.

Plug-in is working fine but when search returns more than 200 results, all the entries from 201 have blank folder property. It seems ICN loads maximum 200 results in background when search is performed. When user scrolls further below after 200th entry, more results are loaded and here probably plug-in not invoked. How can i deal with it? User’s doesnt want to limit search results to 200. Is there any way to handle this in plug-in or by configuration.

Thanks,
Rakesh

WAS Deploy Plugin – Application Source field?

I’m doing a refresh of deploying an ear file into WAS, and I am creating a component process, and as I was adding the ‘Install Application’ step to the component process, which is part of the WAS Deploy plug in, I was curious to know why in the properties ‘Application Source’ is a required property, when I’ve already defined the location of the ear file in the ‘Basic Settings’ for the component and have imported its current version in the Component confiugration. Seems kinda redundant
