VEM installation: Compatible vib not found on VSM

Hello all,

I have an issue with the installation of the VEM. The VSM installation went fine and it can communicate with vCenter.

Below you have some information that you may require:

vSphere 5.1.0 (Trial)

Nexus 1000v - 4.2.1.SV1(5.2b) (Evaluation)

The configuration is pretty simple, 1 server with vCenter + 2 servers with ESXi 5.1.0

I did attempt to install VEM with the graphical java interface and it creates a longer log which ends with the following details (I assume this is important)

IP addresses used:

172.31.82.35 - vCenter

172.31.82.36 - VSM

172.31.82.31 - Esxi-1

172.31.82.32 - Esxi-2

Attached you have also the VSM configuration and the output of some commands that I think should be useful.

Now, that error let me understand that either the installation wizard cannot get / download the vib or that the vib is there but not compatible (with what?). First part, how it cannot download the vib if I have connectivity?! Second, if there is something not compatible, then it should be listed here:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/datacenter/nexus1000/sw/4_2_1_s_v_1_5_2_b/compatibility/information/n1000v_compatibility.html which is not.

I'm a litle bit lost. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Thank you!

Cheers,

Calin
