Re: Unable to restore a VM or mount a SnapVaulted backup

Hi Bizeul,

     This is what hostpreferredAddr1 and 2 mean.

hostPreferredAddr1: The preferred IP address to use for communication between dfm and the host when the hostPrimaryAddress does not work.

hostPreferredAddr2: The preferred IP address to use for communication between dfm and the host when the hostPrimaryAddress and hostPre-ferredAddr1 does not work.

Re: Unable to restore a VM or mount a SnapVaulted backup

Thanks Adaikkappan, I got that and it makes perfect sense.

What does not make much sense is that you must set in that field the IP used on the private storage network, an IP that OnCommand cannot even connect to, but just "know about" so that when spotted into VMware configuration as a datastore mount point, it can be matched against that controller.

I never see that behavior referenced in the documentation

Hi

   I think it plays a part in doing a VM to storage mapping using these IP address and not for any communication if I understand correctly.
