Replication between VVOL Target datastore.

Dear All,

Vsphere version - ESXi 6.5

Replication  - VMRC 6.5

I tried to configure replication between our DC and DR using VVOL as target datastore. i can able to configure replication, but it can ended with error state and throws message as below.

Issue,Type,Trigger Time,Status

"BASISTEST replication error: A replication error occurred at the vSphere Replication Server for replication 'BASISTEST'. Details: 'Error for (datastoreUUID: "vvol:1b96bde5906e47e1-8e0841552b224ebb"), (diskId: "RDID-d8c546e8-3b50-49b7-ada4-2bf758d32dc6"), (hostId: "host-35"), (pathname: "naa.60002AC0000000000000011A0000452C/BASISTEST.vmdk"), (flags: retriable): Class: NFC Code: 10; NFC error: NFC_DISKLIB_ERROR (One of the parameters supplied is invalid); Set error flag: retriable; Can't get block allocation information on remote disk'.",vSphere Replication,25-07-2017 10:43:57,Alert

i tried to find related KB's and documents for the above error and for replicaiton configuration between VVOL datastore but unable to find anything. i will be very helpful for us if any documents share or issue resolution.

Thanks & Regards

Balaji

Hello,

Have you tried reaching out to the storage vendor to see if everything on their end is working fine?

I'm recieving a similar error too.

I open SR on Vmware but it's very long process. My storage is 3par.

I found one interesting feature , when i launch repl , target vvol create cfg , source vmdk but not create hbr .vmdk

I think may be problem in this

How did it go with VMWare?  Did you get it resolved?  I have the same issue.

Me too. It seems to be an issue with the VASA provider.

2019-09-06T07:36:45.378Z error vvold[2099311] [Originator@6876 sub=Default] VasaOp::IsSuccessful [#3

3652]: allocatedBitmapVirtualVolume transient failure: 9 (INVALID_ARGUMENT / Invalid argument / )

I have the issue only with VMDKs > 32GB and only if the traget datastore is VVOL, 32GB are fine, 33GB fails, VMFS6 as target works too.

Has anyone more infos on that issue? I've opened a ticket with HPE and VMware.
