Upgrading to vCenter Server 7.0 to 8.0.2 fails with difference FQDN and PNID

Upgrading to vCenter Server 7.0 to 8.0.2 fails with difference FQDN and PNID

while upgrading the VCSA 7.0.3 to the latest VCSA 8.0.3 the prechecks fail with the following message „The source appliance FQDN must be the same as the source appliance primary network identifier„. The FQDN and the PNID is not match. For example

  • vcsa.tomaskalabis.com
  • VS
  • vcsa

The resolution is pretty easy if you have open SSH console the source VCSA appliance. You can show the difference in names with: 

Primary Network Identifier (PNID)

  • /usr/lib/vmware-vmafd//bin/vmafd-cli get-pnid –server-name localhost

Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN)

  • hostname

To resolve this issue, connect to the vCenter Appliance via SSH and update the FQDN to match the case of the PNID.

 1. Use vmafd-cli to get the PNID value

  • /usr/lib/vmware-vmafd//bin/vmafd-cli get-pnid –server-name YOURHOSTNAME

2. Run the VAMI network configuration tool

  • /opt/vmware/share/vami/vami_config_net
  • Choose option 3 „hostname“
  • Input the PNID output from step 1

3. Retry the Upgrade

is not a necessary to reboot the source appliance, you can re-run the prechecks
