We are having the exact same error with 6TB assigned at setup. Did you manage to solve that without reinstalling?
Is there already a solution for that?
I think a fresh install will not solve this issue.
ha also here. Painfully.
very bad once vdp needs to recreated from scratch.
As needing to delete annotation Values. And then add again all vms manually again to get new ID.
Hope vmware provide API or and input list.
Supporting lot of vms without automization is horrible in Case of refreshments.
is that an official solution from the VMware Support?
Can you try to click the extend button again after you have extended your disk?
Will you get the error again?
I think a fresh install will not help if you will extend your disk once again.....
no i didnt had the Time for vmware support. was not happy with answers last times.
So i personally started from scratch to avoid Time loosing.
I will open a SR and report the solution.
Any news on this from VMware?
Experience exact the same issue. Also created a SR just now....
i have lot of issues with vdp overally.
VDP checkpoint out of date
java consuming lot ressources
often connectivity errors - need to restart Tomcat
Even with 6.x versions.
and today for any reason without any message vdp lost more then 100vms in the backup job.
To avoid expand problems - i choosed bigger Size on Deployment and did Thin provisioning.
Painfully. But yeah its free ha
I also have similar issue , the issue got resolved by changing configuration file
- Use Vi to open file under /usr/local/vdr/etc/vdr-configuration.xml
- Edit that file and changed <numberOfDisk>3</numberOfDisk> to <numberOfDisk>6</numberOfDisk> ( If you expanding from 4TB change 3 to 6, if you are expanding 6TB change same 9)
- Try to expand the appliance again.
Can confirm srikanthrao147's suggestion works. I also had to modify the same entry in the vdr-configuration-deployed.xml
Can confirm srikanthrao147's solution works.
VMware support used it today on our system (VDP 126.96.36.199) and it solved the problem.
Worked for me as well, should be marked as answered.
