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?
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.
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.
