    Apply Storage DRS Recommendations : Cannot Connect to Host

    baronne Novice

      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?

      Our configuration:

      VSphere 5.5

      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 (new cluster connected and managed on service console)

      Production (vCenter connected, VM network traffic)

      Storage (NetApp, C7000 Flex-10)
