I'm getting an error when trying to migrate VMs from standalone hosts into a newly created cluster. I'm also getting the error when trying to deploy a new VM from a template created on the new cluster datastores. The tasks shows "Apply Storage DRS recommendations" and fails with the error "Cannot connect to host". Occasionally, however, I can deploy a VM successfully and I don't get an error. Could anybody help me troubleshoot this?
1 x Physical vCenter server
5 x standalone hosts
1 x cluster (2 hosts)
1 x datastore cluster (3x NFS datastores - connected to NetApp filer)
1 x vDS
Management 172.16.0.0/21 (new cluster connected and managed on service console)
Production 10.2.0.0/16 (vCenter connected, VM network traffic)
Storage 10.4.1.0/24 (NetApp, C7000 Flex-10)
Whether storage is shared between both hosts ( the VM that you are trying to migrate)?
I encountered the same error while deploying VM through template and migrating VM from one cluster to another ..it stops at 8%.
Issue was identified as the Target cluster was in DMZ and Template & VM was non DMZ.
There was ports restriction between both clusters.
