    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

      Standalone:

      5 x standalone hosts

      Cluster:

      1 x cluster (2 hosts)

      1 x datastore cluster (3x NFS datastores - connected to NetApp filer)

      1 x vDS

       

      Networking:

      Management 172.16.0.0/21 (new cluster connected and managed on service console)

      Production 10.2.0.0/16 (vCenter connected, VM network traffic)

      Storage 10.4.1.0/24 (NetApp, C7000 Flex-10)
