This post is related to the issue what we faced today when we replaced the SSL certificates in our setup. When I launched the web-client and access the update manager tab, I get the message "interface
com.vmware.vim.binding.integrity.VcIntegrity is not visible from class
I started off by
restarting the VMWare vSphere Update Manager Service for the affected vCSA: 1. Log into vCenter
using the firstname.lastname@example.org account. 2. Home - System
Configuration - Services - Restart
This did not resolve
my issue... And we tried restarting all the services by SSH/Console into the
affected server and run the following commands: service-control
--start --all Still no luck. Make sure the certs are applied and it gets reflected in the config file. ( verify if the thumbprint matches) root@homelab71 [

What is an Inventory? An Inventory is the process of mounting media in the drive and reading the media label, which is then displayed in the Devices view. If this is the first time that Backup Exec ™ has encountered this media, the media label is also added to the Media view. Note: Each time new tape is introduced in the tape drive or robotic library, it must be inventoried so that the Backup Exec database gets updated with the new tape Information. To Inventory a Tape/Robotic Library: 1. Insert the tape 2. Click the Devices tab 3. Select the correct tape drive/robotic library slot 4. Right-click on the tape drive/robotic library slot and select Inventory (Figure 1) Figure 1
The inventory will complete and should display the correct tape name. What is a Catalog? When cataloging a tape, Backup Exec reads the header information from the tape and stores it in a file on the hard drive. The information contained in the catalog includes, but is not limited to: Tape number/label/name (something to identi…
