Adding a Host Managed by Another VirtualCenter Server Leaves the Add Host Dialog Box Open (1407)

  • 1 Ratings


Why does the Add Host dialog box remain open when I try to add a managed host to another VirtualCenter server?


Removing a host from one VirtualCenter server, while in the middle of adding a host to another VirtualCenter server, fails. As a result of this failure, the Add Host dialog box remains open.

To resolve this problem:

  1. Cancel the Add a Host wizard on the host with the already being managed message.
    The host is added to the new VirtualCenter server but is listed as disconnected.
  2. Remove the host from the conflicting VirtualCenter server.
  3. Select the host on the new VirtualCenter server and select Connect.

To correct this upgrade to VirtualCenter 2.1 or later.
