All vSphere Replication releases so far automatically pause the replication once disk is added to the VM and require the user to explicitly include the disk in the replication or ignore it.
Unfortunately, there is no setting to change this behavior.
If the configure replication wizard allowed setting list of excluded disks, even if they are not currently present on the VM, something like: ignore SCSI 1:0, SCSI 1:1, IDE 0:1, would that work for you?
Yes, it would certainly help! Any way we can have that done at all?
I also think that the replication wizard should have 2 tickboxes like:
( ) Disks added to this VM will be marked for replication;
( ) Generate an alert when a disk is added/removed from VM
I have created a feature request with VMware and pointed to this post. I'll update when I hear back.
Any news on that? I've the same issue and updated to the newest vSphere Replication Appliance 220.127.116.11 and there is still no option to select harddisks using SCSI Adapter name for replication.
Or is there any other workaround for this case?
Thanks and regards!
