We have VDP 6.1.2 with 4T capacity (6T net space). We tried to expand capacity from 4T -> 6T (6T ->9T).
On the vdp-configure storage tab we choosed Expand Storage and got the following message:
-vdp: There are incorrect number of disks associated with vdp appliance.
We have two 4Tb storage luns assigned to VDP and one 4Tb lun is created for the expansion.
Now it seems that we cannot expand disks couse we don't have enough space on existing luns.
And becouse this error we can't assign the third lun to vdp to cover that required space.
Is there a chicken egg proglem or am I missed something?
How do we assign more disk space (lun) to VDP so we can do the disk expansion?
Enviroment is ESXi 6 with latest updates
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.....
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VDP checkpoint out of date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
Hope this helps:
