Resolving FQDN Detection Issues in VMware Aria Suite Lifecycle

This is a quick post about an issue I encountered with Aria LCM and Aria Ops 4 Logs. Somehow, Aria LCM couldn’t detect the correct Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) of the Aria Ops 4 Logs nodes. All three nodes showed as localhost. Consequently, Aria LCM updated the root password for localhost, which was, obviously, Aria LCM itself.

All three Aria Ops 4 Logs nodes displayed their own hostname in vCenter and on the CLI.

The fix is relatively straightforward to implement:
Change the SSH settings on the Aria Ops 4 Logs nodes, as described in this article: 95974

Next, install patch 1 in Aria LCM, which can be downloaded here: Patches

 

After successfully installing the patch, you should be able to perform a vCenter inventory sync and an Aria Operations for Logs inventory sync. The FQDN field should now be populated correctly.

 

Errors:

InvalidKeySpecException: key spec not recognized

Error Code: LCMVRNICONFIG90058
Failed to update SSH password for support user. Retry with new Password.

Error Code: LCMVACONFIG80003
Failed to update the password. You can send a new password update request by making sure the current password is correct and the new password has not been already used.
Failed to update the password for localhost
