User-triggered vCenter discovery
The discovery of virtual assets from the vCenter occurs during one of the following circumstances:
- When a switch boots up.
- When a new vCenter is configured on the VDX switch and activated (activation turns on the timer processing, set to 180-second intervals.)
- When the discovery is explicitly initiated with the CLI.
To explicitly initate vCenter discovery, perform the following task in global configuration mode.
An invalid state or condition of a vCenter can cause the deletion of all auto-port-profiles in a system. To prevent this from happening, configure the
ignore-delete-all-response operand of the
vcenter command to ignore the “delete-all” responses from the vCenter.
switch(config)# vcenter MYVC discover ignore-delete-all-response 5
Return to privileged EXEC mode with the
switch(config)# exit switch#
vnetwork vcenter command to trigger a vCenter discovery manually.
switch# vnetwork vcenter myvcenter discover
