vCenter inventory

Good morning for everyone, hope You are doing fine, on our customer we are trying to integrate the vCenter on one of their sites.

We are picking the correct inventory from one site using of their Beacons, but we are not succeeding on picking the inventory from other networking with their assigned beacon.

 

As can be shown on the table,  it always detect the sytem as if vCenter was not discovered, but in fact it is active on the standard 443 port.

Beacons are on the same 2020R1 release.

If anyone guesses about it, what could be happenning here on this beacon inventory not discovering the vCenter parts?.

Much appreciated.

Re: vCenter inventory

Hello @jjgarcia_sia,

This KB article is generally a good starting point for investigation into this sort of problem: Failure to run discovery on VMware vCenter/Host Servers in FlexNet Manager Suite On-Premises 

Also - is ICMP permitted on this network where the discovery is failing? If not, then this KB may be of interest to you too: How to allow beacon network scans in a network with ICMP disabled 

HTH,

Joseph
