Hi, currently we have 2 sites with below setup:
Production: Windows vCenter 6.5u3 with external PSC
DR: Windows vCenter 6.5u3 with external PSC
Enhanced Linked Mode enabled on both PSC (Prod & DR) .
Our plan is to upgrade/migrate both Windows vCenter to VCSA 7.0 with embedded PSC.
When we trying to migrate the first vCenter to VCSA 7.0, we select "This is the first vCenter Server in the topology that I want to converge", everything looks good.
For the second vCenter, we got an error "The replication partner provided is not part of the topology. Please provide the PNID of partner vCenter Server" when we selected "This is a subsequent vCenter Server" with the IP address of the first upgraded VCSA.
This is the current replication topology:
VCSA7 -> Prod PSC
Prod PSC -> DR PSC and VCSA7
DR PSC -> Prod PSC
Kindly find attached screenshot for more info.
Should I choose "First vcenter" options for this second vcenter as well? Do I need to add/change the replication partner? Please advise.
Check what is the current topology and replication status
seems the 2nd PSC still talking to OLD PSC? Because you need to keep the consistency across the replication partners.
