Hope you read my previous post with related to the VCSA 6.5 HA configuration. Again!, this is a new feature came with VMware vCenter 6.5 to minimize the down time of the vCenter server. That is one of the cool feature so far.
Here, I would like to share something that I experienced while I was deploying and configuring the vCenter HA feature. I believe, this will make your life more easier if you are configuring the “HA” feature.
SSH should be enabled …
First of all, I mentioned that SSH should be enabled on the appliance if you are deploying the nodes, otherwise you will get a notification and deployment get failed.
So, what you have to do is just enable the SSH on the appliance and start the deployment again. Please follow the below steps to enable the SSH on the appliance.
Login to the Appliance Management console, use “https://<FQDN or the IP of the VCSA>:5480 to access the web console
“Failed to get the Management network information. Verify if management interface (NIC0) is configured correctly and is reachable”
