vRA Network and Security Inventory Data Collection Failed

I’ve been playing around with Dell EMC RP4VM & vRA and needed to setup cross vCenter NSX in my lab. I’m not going to go into that setup as there are many blogs on the subject. What i will cover is an error i hit when trying to do Network and Security Inventory data collections on one of my NSX endpoints. The error from the Dem logs in vRA (Infrastructure > Monitoring > Log ) was as follows:


Workflow 'vSphereVCNSInventory' failed with the following exception:
'object' does not contain a definition for 'clusters'

After digging around for VMware KBs and blogs on the subject and coming up empty handed i went back to review my entire setup and discovered i had missed adding a vCenter cluster to the universal transport zone on the offending NSX endpoint, which is my DR site.

Once i rectified this the Network and Security Inventory Data Collection worked as expected.
