The Storage Monitoring Service plug-in fails to install in VMware vCenter Server 6.0 (2115295)

  • 8 Ratings

Symptoms

When logged in to VMware vCenter Server 6.0 using the VMware vSphere Client and you have earlier versions of the VMware vSphere Client installed, you experience these symptoms:
  • The vCenter Storage Monitoring Service plug-in does not enable
  • The plug-in manager window reports the error:

    The plug-in failed to load on server(s) xxxxx due to the following error:
    Could not load file or assembly 'VI, Version=5.5.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=7c80a434483c7c50' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.


 

Resolution

This is an expected behavior in VMware vCenter Server 6.0.

In VMware vCenter Server 6.0:
  • The Storage Reports selection from an object's Monitor tab is no longer available in the vSphere 6.0 Web Client.
  • The Storage Views tab is no longer available in the vSphere 6.0 Client.
For more information, see the Product Support Notices section in the VMware vCenter Server 6.0 Release Notes.

The Storage Monitoring Service plug-in is for previous versions of VMware vCenter Server. This plug-in is visible if an earlier version of the VMware vSphere Client is installed. VMware recommends to uninstall earlier versions of the VMware vSphere Client that are no longer in use.
