I have the same issue. It takes forever to load. Are you still having this issue?
Thanks for posting.
1. Would you please give me an idea of the size of the environment in which the datatores' list is slow to load: how many hosts and how many datastores have you got?
2. Which version of vSphere Replication have you got?
Was there ever a followup to this?
I have the same situation here. The datastore selector is glacial.
vSphere Replication version 184.108.40.20619, build 3051487. I can't use a newer version since for this project I'm stuck with down-level vCenter servers.
The sites are ~3000 mi apart so there is considerable WAN latency. However, the data returned to the source server shouldn't be big enough to care. (Or, maybe it does?)
Target site has ten hosts, 53 datastores.
The "For optimal performance, only 20 of 53 datastores are displayed..." message is of little comfort when I then have to filter to find the target I really want.
This is _excruciating_ since I have a number of machines I can't configure in a batch with others, and a few with RDMs that I have to manually de-select. (Which causes another problem, but the performance is the bigger issue.)
Any updates to this? I too am experiencing a VERY long "Select Target Location" page load. It takes approximately 2 minutes to load the list of 25 datastores over about 10 ESX hosts. Many machines have multiple vDisks, so i have to sit at this 2 minute screen for every disk. That turns into a 10-15 minute job for each virtual machine I setup replication on. Any thoughts on speeding up this load time?
What version of Replication are you using? There was a code change that improved this behavior when there are a lot of datastores on the target site. In newer builds it should be a bit faster when viewing target datastores...
