SAN replicated disk showing as blank

Hi

We are running ESXi 6.7 free version.

We replicate data across locations using v7000 flash copy.

In order to test a dr scenario, we woudl bring down the vm's and esx in one site and then attach the datastores in the 2nd site and power up.

The ESX OS is recognised and boots up, however the attached data disk is being seen as a blank disk with no data/servers/vmdk on it.

According to v7000, the source and target are replicated and consistent.

This did work previously when we were at ESXi v6.2

Any idea why its not working now?

Thanks

I'm not familiar with that storage, so this is more of a guess.

Can you confirm that you've presented the correct LUN/Snapshot to the ESXi host? Some replications create snapshots for their synchronized data, where only the latest snapshot contains current data.

Hi André

Thanks for your reply.

It is SAN based of the disk, not a snapshot, so the entire disk is being replicated.

As I said, the OS disk works fine and the ESX host boots up ok, its the datastore is being seen as empty.

Thanks
