    vSphere Replication 6.1.2 > 8.1.2 failing (add-on server)

    burchell99 Novice

      Hello

       

      I have been working through steps in a lab to upgrade vSphere Replication from 6.1.2 > 8.1.2 without success.

       

      I checked upgrade paths and it seems i am in a supported path.

       

      We have a vSphere Replication Server on 6.1.2.2 and an add on server on 6.1.2.1 (due to a replication bug previously experienced this setup was advised by support).

       

      I am trying to upgrade the add on servers first as per documentation but when I deploy the new 8.1.2 appliance and start the migration it fails with:

       

      ERROR network_validation Config flags for interface do not match. (eth0)

       

      I tried to troubleshoot this and ensure the config did match (DNS, search, domain etc) but it still failed.

       

      I also validated i had an OVF context in the main server and add on server but the same thing keeps happening. I can select ignore and try and register but unsure of the impact. Has anyone managed to upgrade from 6.1.2 > 8.1.2? I would love to hear your experiences.
