    Cannot resolve from recovery site a protected site Opaque Network by device backing info.

    snochico1 Novice

      I am moving my NSX-V over to NSX-T.   I have two sites, Site-A with a DVS and Site B with NVDS. When I move my VMs from Site-A to Site-B, IP customization works without issue. I then re-protect my workload and move the VMs from Site-B to Site-A.  The VMs get connected to the DVS on the correct portgroup but the recovery site will not process the ip customization.  When I go through the DR.LOG I have an error "Cannot resolve from recovery site a protected site Opaque Network by device backing info."

       

       

      I have opened a ticket with VMware. Hopefully someone else had the issue can point me at a resolution before I hear back from VMware.
