Cannot rename aggregate in CDOT vSim

Running vSim 8.2.1, under vSphere 5.1

 

When I look at aggregates for the cluster (three nodes), the aggregates are shown, but  not discs or further info.  When I try to renam the aggregates I see the following:

 

{

devcf01::storage> aggr modify -aggregate aggr0 -state online

Error: command failed: Failed to online aggregate aggr0. Reason: Lookup failed.

}

 

When I try to rename the aggregate, I see:

 

{

devcf01::> aggr rename -aggregate aggr0_devcf01_03_0 -newname ag0103
[Job 893] Failed to get the location information of aggregate aggr0_devcf01_03_0 from vldb due to entry doesn't exist.  Retrying job[Job 893] Job is queued: Rename aggr0_devcf01_03_0 to ag0103.                                                                      
Error: command failed: [Job 893] Job failed: Failed to get the location information of aggregate aggr0_devcf01_03_0 from vldb due
       to entry doesn't exist.

}

 

Can anyone help with this?

Re: Cannot rename aggregate in CDOT vSim

it is not clear - was it this way from the very beginning or you did something that caused it?

Re: Cannot rename aggregate in CDOT vSim

Never mind, the issue we believe was caused by using non-standard serial #'s and NVRAM id's.  I'm going to refresh, convert to ESXi and try a two node cluster WITH the serials in the text file.
