The log that needs to be verified resides on vCenter, it will be required to SSH into vCenter in order to verify it or from the DCUI by switching to the console pressing ALT + F1 if needed.


This issue is resolved in vCenter 6.7 Update 3a

Additional Information

Note: When patching any vSAN cluster, it is critical to patch vCenter as well as ESXi.  If the ESXi hosts have been patched up to 6.7 Update 3, but vCenter is still on a previous build, the next step is to patch vCenter up to 6.7 Update 3 as well to ensure compatibility.

vSAN modules fail to display any info in vCenter Web Client with an error similar to Unable to retrieve/query information/configuration. Check vSphere Client logs for details (76045)
