SnapCenter Plug-in for VMware vSphere detects FlexGroup instead of Flex Vol volumes, see screenshot:

As soon as I add more than one ch_fx_vmdatastore_gen_00* volume in the Resource Group I get this warning and can not continue. I have double checked in ONTAP and these are really FlexVol volumes and not FlexGroup volumes. Also I have some older Resource Groups which still have all the ch_fx_vmdatastore_gen_00* volumes in them and are running fine. Next to that we have other environments with completely the same setup and no problems like this at all.

 

The only strange thing I found so far is that this envrionment with the problem does have different Permissions when I look in Administration / Access Roles / Roles and go to Edit a role. I have tried to unregister and register the SnapCenter Plug-in for VMware vSphere, but that did not make the permission structure completely the same. Anyway, it does not seem to be a problem as the old jobs can run from start to end without any problems.

 

Anybody with a solution for this, other than creating a Resource Group job for every single vmdatastore?
