Query vm.totalStorageSize not working

Jump to solution

Good morning/afternoon SW Junkies,

I am having the following issue

both vm.totalStorageSize and vm.totalStorageSizetotal query do not work on my Virtualization Manager, zero bytes reported , for the dashboard (pre canned Storage Dashboard) or data export

I am running the latest product version / VApp

The domain account im using is the same for both Storage Manager and Virtualization manager, STM seems to be working fine

What level of permissions does this account need on Vcenter Server (5.5)

Thank you

We are currently working on our side to fully support vCSA but unfortunately its not officially supported yet.  We are looking at it and we are in the process of doing internal validation but it is still ongoing.

It should be just datastore browse privilege - same as what is required for STM.  Do you see data for vm.volSummary.capacity ?

vm.volSummary.capacity , this query reports data just fine, in the export and in the dashboard

That's odd. It looks some VMan is unable to fetch a specific API object(s). I plead ignorance.

If you click on advanced search button on top and search for any part of the attribute string, you can see the description for the matching attributes. Vm.volsummary I believe is a derived attribute from the sizes of the individual volumes on that VM. As per the description, vm.totalstorage.. one is the total size used across all datastores. I'm not sure how exactly it is derived or queried. Vm.vol info definitely requires datastore browse access.

Are you using vCSA for your vCenter instance?
