Unable to access file

Hi all

I am currently creating a protection group for SRM.

I have created a test cluster at our protected site which has 2 hosts, 1 datastore and a folder called Protected

I have then created a test cluster at our recover site which has 2 hosts, 1 datastore and folder called Recoverd

I have 3 test servers in the protected site and in the datastore and protected folder.

As far as I can see I have configured the folder mappings correctly, the recourses, placeholder datastores and network mappings on both sites.

When I create my protected group it comes back with the error againist each VM saying "Placeholder VM creation error: Unable to access file [SRM BAS Reocver Datastore01]"

Then on the vCentre at recovery site it says "unable to access file [SRM BAS Recover datastore01]

I have attached screenshots of the errors.

Can provide what extra information required.

Any help would be great.

Thanks!

Austin.

Hi,

On Recovery site, datastore on which you are storing place holder VM is mapped to all the ESXI host ? If not map it to all the ESXi host.

Hi Mohammed,

Thanks for getting back to me.

Yes the datastore is mapped to all ESXi blades.
