I'm assuming it's offline due to being out of sync with it's replica. Is there any way to access the data on the sync'd host without waiting for replication? Either via SSH directly to the VSA or otherwise?
Did you find a way to extract DATA from a VSA ?
Yes, I talked to support and we were able to break the VSA mirror and export the working replica via nfs.
Thanks for the answer
Do you remember how it was done ?
Beacause my VSA get broken after the end of the trial verison and VMware stop selling VSA (the seller take too much time to provide 1 licence) , and i have some important production VM inside.
Then i don't have a support contract for that
Hi i solved my probleme
I had to exit each VSA from the Maintenance Mode
to that :
Open a console to the VSA
Loin as root ( password : svapass) also have a look in this link to open root access : VMware KB: Login and troubleshooting command changes for VMware Storage Appliance 5.1
pass the command
WSCLI 127.0.0.1 exitMaintenanceMode
and pass also the commande
WSCLI 127.0.0.1 vcsExitMaintenanceMode
and all the VM come back
