After upgrading VCSA from version 6.5 to 6.5 Update 1 you might experience a problem with Task Names and object Descriptions. Names are not “resolved” to its human understandable name, but instead they are written as a API object name.
For instance a host profile compliance check would normally be “Compliance check” but is instead written as “profile.ComplianceManager.check.label” or a VMotion is written as “Drm.ExecuteVMotionLRO.label”
Pretty annoying, especially when you are trying to figure out what is wrong with your host profile, as it is not only the tasks labels that is wrong, it is all over vCenter and both in the Web Client and the HTML5 client as well.
After some troubleshooting with help from Vmware Support we managed to solve the problem by removing the NetApp VSC plugin.
After unregistering it using the Extension Manager in the Managed Object Browser it was back to normal.
- To unregister the NetApp plugin go to the vCenter MOB http://<vCenterFQDN>/mob
- Login with SSO admin account
- Go to content
- Go to ExtensionManager
- Go to UnregisterExtension
- Type <Extension Name> into the value box
- Hit Invoke Method
You have to unregister all NetApp plugins, and you can find them in the extensionList. The ones I have are called: com.netapp.nvpf and com.netapp.nvpf.webclient
These steps are done at your own risk of course, and you will not be able to use you NetApp plugins until you re-register them. This might result in your backup not running!

Hope this helps someone.
