Unable To Configure VDP To vCenter - Unable to find this VDP in the vCenter inventory

So, you might run into issues where you are unable to configure VDP to vCenter and you run into this error.
Unable to find this VDP in the vCenter inventory



In the vdr-configure.log you will notice the following. Again, for all issues with vdp-configure page refer the vdr-configure.log

2017-04-10 10:41:13,353 ERROR [http-nio-8543-exec-2]-vi.ViJavaAccess: getPoweredOnVmByIpAddr(): Cannot determine appropriate powered on AVE virtual machine with IP Address [10.x.x.x] since there exist many of them (2): type=VirtualMachine name=vdp-vm mor-id=vm-208, type=VirtualMachine name=Windows-Jump mor-id=vm-148


So in this case, 10.x.x.x is the IP of my VDP machine and there is a duplicate IP used by another VM in the vCenter and this is Windows-Jump. If this is the case, determine if you can remove the duplicate IP or change the IP of the VDP appliance. The configuration test should then complete without issues. 

Hope this helps.
