I'm having an issue setting up replication for a server which has previously been replicated. I'm getting an error:
"Unable to configure replication for virtual machine <server_name> because group <server_name> cannot be created. Another virtual machine <server_name> that has the same instance UUID '501b9832-bb79-d90e-7d32-f7ae5accefba' already exists on protection site <site>"
A google search led me to KB2065033 but I'm having issues getting the resolution to work. When I try to browse to:
I get a 'page not found' error.
If I remove everything after /mob/ it asks me for a username and password and I can log in but there's no detail and no way (that I know of) to browse to the relevant data.
Anybody got any ideas as to what I'm doing wrong?
The API different across different VR major versions, so I can't provide exact URLs.
Please note that the Managed Object Browser is mostly for troubleshooting purposes.
To see the VRMS API, you need the vmodl=1 argument.
To see the complete API open https://vrms:8043/mob/?vmodl=1
To list the outgoing replications - look for methods at the replication-manager object.
To list the incoming replications - look for methods at the replica-manager object.
If using a single vCenter server (so called ROBO mode), there will be _PRIMARY and _SECONDARY suffixes to the GID_... values.
Please consider opening a SR to get support from VMware. They should be able to quickly resolve the issue.
I raised a support call and it was resolved. The reference to the old replication was at the target site and once it was removed from the database the new replication worked fine.
