Issue/Introduction

Symptoms:
  • Failed to refresh the transport node configuration:

[Fabric] Provide audit username together with corresponding password property. For audit user, specify either both username and password properties or none. The audit user will be disabled when the username and password are not specified.
  • If you see an error "Edge Node Mismatch alarm: Failed to refresh the transport node configuration: [Fabric] Password for the following user(s) do not follow complexity rules" - Please refer to the KB 94490


Environment

VMware NSX-T Data Center
VMware NSX-T Data Center 3.x

Cause

  • In the earlier versions of VMware NSX-T data center, pre VMware NSX-T data center 2.5, the password requirements were not as stringent as they are in the later versions.
  • Since VMware NSX-T data center 3.2, there are new validation checks for operations carried out on the edge node in vCenter, these lead to an edge node mismatch alarm to be generated, which indicates that vCenter and VMware NSX-T data center do not have the same information about the edge.
  • This alarm is generated to allow this mismatch to be corrected.
  • This issue (unable to resolve the mismatch alarm) occurs when a weak password exists in the VMware NSX-T data center DB for the edge node, thus preventing the operation to correct the mismatch, the edge node redeploy, as the password held in the corfu DB is weaker than the password requirements for the edge node.

Resolution

This known issue will be fixed in future releases.

Workaround:
