    Note: The preceding log excerpts are only examples. Date, time, and environmental variables may vary depending on your environment.


This issue occurs due to duplicate tag name defined in the VIP tags and vSphere Integration tags.

For example:

source_vc=vcenter1 is specified in both VIP tags and vSphere Integration tags.


This is a known issue affecting vRealize Log Insight 3.6.

Currently, there is no resolution.

To work around this issue, remove the duplicate tag from either the VIP or the vSphere Integration tags.
