VMware SRM 5.8 Issues - Failed to recover datastore

Hi All,

I have made a SRM Lab, which following configuration

  • Protected Site:
    • DC (2012 R2) - Primary DC
    • VC01 (2012 R2) - First vCenter (with Linked Mode)
    • SQL01 (2012 R2 / SQL 2012 Express) - Store SRM01 Database
    • SRM01 (2012 R2 / Version 5.8)
    • CMC (2012 R2 / HP StoreVirtual CMC 11.5) - Deploy VSA01
    • VSA01 - Deployed from CMC
  • Recovery Site
    • ADC (2012 R2) - Additional DC
    • VC02 (2012 R2) - Second vCenter (with Linked Mode)
    • SQL02 (2012 R2 / SQL 2012 Express) - Store SRM02 Database
    • SRM02 (2012 R2 / Version 5.8)
    • VSA02 - Deployed from CMC

This lab was configured on Array Replication with HP VSA.

After finishes configuration, I started to test recovery plan, it's work fine

Then i try to test Recovery mode, still fine. Then i do reportect, still fine. at this time, protected site is recovery site & recovery site is protected site

So that i have to do a failback to switch everything to original state (before recovery), now i got the problem like html file that i attached.Capture.JPG

Did i miss anything in my configuration? i have tried to edit StorageProvider from some recommends on VMware community with no luck

The host 9 & 11 still see the device, but only 9 can mount the VSA datastore, 11 cannot

Hi Viet,

I have no experience using the HP SRA but this looks like a HP issue. Maybe you could post this on the HP support forum?

Regards.

Hi Marek,

I have fixed it by myself. The problem really come from HP CMC, HP VSA just provide the datastore which present to ESXi Host

On HP CMC, it need to be configured same time on both group (Protect group & Recovery Group) and assigned the iSCSI software adapters which are belong to Protect servers.

And it just need to configure on Protect Group only, let HP CMC auto finish on Recovery Group.

Happy to see those green Smiley Happy
