Renaming of Tag Category fails

This post was originally published on this site



we ran into an interesting issue. While renaming a Tag Category we receive the following error:


com.vmware.vapi.std.errors.invalid_argument {‘messages’: [], ‘data’:}

At line:1 char:24

+ Get-TagCategory XXX | Set-TagCategory -Name “XXXXX”

+                    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+ CategoryInfo      : NotSpecified: (:) [Set-TagCategory], CisException
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : ViCore.Impl.V1.Service.Tagging.Cis.TaggingServiceCisImpl.SetCategory.Error,VMware.VimAutomation.ViCore.Cmdlets.Commands.Tagging.SetTagCategory


This Category was originally created on a newly deployed vCSA 6.5 and updated to 6.7 U3. If I create a new Tag Category, assign Tags and Tag Objects with them, there is no problem renaming the category afterwards.

The same thing happens in our DEV environment, which was already updated to 7.0.

We tried the local Admin User and AD Users. Nothing changed.


Has anyone experienced something similar before?
