Resolved Issues

Miscellaneous Issues
  • VMware Skyline Health screen shows an error instead of system health info

    In the vSphere Client, when you navigate to Monitor > Skyline Health under a vSAN or vSphere cluster, you see an error such as Unable to query vSphere health information. Check vSphere Client logs for details.. The issue occurs because in certain environments Skyline Health cannot discover the APIs it needs to collect data from the vCenter Server system and ESXi hosts.
    In the analytics service logs, you see errors such as:
    Error while getting the data providers list from: java.lang.IllegalStateException: Unable to locate VAPI URI.
