Hello,

The VMware vCenter Storage Monitoring Service has an Alert which states " Unable to  retrieve health data from http://localhost:8080/sms/smService-web/health.xml. I'm not sure what the problem is and I've search for a solution without any luck. The storage view tab is fixed but I still have the alert. Any help would be great.

This ocassionally happnes, try restarting ALL the vCenter Server Services.

You've not made any changes to the Ports, or installed any Web Services using Port 8080 ?

I've tried restarting all services. I did fail to mention I work in a secure environment and  we had to remove all admin rights to the vcenter server services.  To comply to the order and make sure vcenter's service was able to start I used Proces Monitor  and restarting the service to find where it was being denied in the registry and giving it the proper rights. I've been fairly successful except with VMware vCenter Storage Monitoring Service alert showing up. Not sure what else to look at.

Has this ever worked or just stopped working?

Is port 8080 open and responding?

I would check

a. on the host if port 8080 is open
b. try telnet <ip address> 8080
c. in a browser does this page http://localhost:8080/sms/smService-web/health.xml respond ?

It appears the web link to  web page was changed.  I compared the c:\program files\vmware\infrastructure\virtualcenter server\extenions\com.vmware.vim.sms\extension.xml file on our other domain (which should be the same) and it didn't show the 8080 port and telnet is disabled in the environment. I changed it back to http://localhost/sms/health.xml; restarted the service and I got all green check marks.... Yes!

Thanks Andrew for talking with me about it.
