I am prepping for a migration from SRM 8.3 for windows to SRM 8.4 appliance. when i run the export-srm-data.bat on my existing SRM server, I get an error: ###STOP Error Received 2.
Has anyone ever seen this before?
Hi @anothervsphereu ,
I believe this error is noticed due to incorrect SRA credentials. Can you check the SRA credentials and re-run the migration ?
I did some additional research last night, and I believe you are correct about the SRA credentials. However, I'm not sure what SRA credentials it is referring to. When I look at the HL+KLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\vmware-dr\creds key, it is empty.
Im having the same issue just upgraded a system to 8.3 on Windows and when I go to export the settings to put on the appliance I get the same error and as yourself nothing in the registry. Did you get a fix ?
I had to open a case with Vmware. This was a known issue. Here is the workaround.
1. As a workaround, open export-srm-data.bat with a text editor and comment out the following line to skip the process
echo *** Exporting SRA credentials ***
% BIN_DIR% \ installcreds.exe --cmd export --cfg% CONFIG% --type sra --file% EXPORT_DIR% \ sraCredentials> nul if% ERRORLEVEL% NEQ 0 goto abort
2. and then try to export it again.
Please note: the SRA credentials will not be carried over(exported); you will need to reconfigure.
This worked for me.
Can you provide information how you reconfigured the SRA credentials?
After you have imported your data into the new SRM appliance, launch the DR gui and go to your site pair. Then go to your array pairs and edit them. You should be able to enter the SRA credentials there.
Thank you for the reply. I do not however see any option to enter credentials, only array managers and ports. I am on version 220.127.116.11
yes. What I did was create an "SRM Utility server" at each location and installed solutions enabler on that.
Thank you. We are facing the same issue. It makes sense as the SE local install does not use credentials, but Vmware should have thought of that.
