vCenter Operations Manager error: “number of resources exceeds supported limit”

July 17, 2014 0 By Allan Kjaer

I have had this issue at a customer, where vCops after running for some time, came with this administrative alert.: "number of resources exceeds supported limit"

After some searching on the internet i found 2 articles that had something about this:

They both pointed to a advanced setting that should be set, but nothing about the value, so i had to do some research, and found that the default value for this:

maxNumberOfResourcesSupported = 10000

After some talk with VMware we have set this to:

maxNumberOfResourcesSupported = 99999999

The paramter is set in /usr/lib/vmware-vcops/user/conf/analytics/, on both VM i the vApp, not sure of that's necessary, but the configuration file is on both. 

I then restarted vCops and after some time the error disappeared. smiley
