We have setup with vSphere 6, VCenter Appliance, and a Windows 2012 with the NetApp VSC plugin installed. I can setup a backup-job, with snapshot of VM, and snapmirror of the volume. When I run the job manully it works, but it won't run at the scheduled time. It worked fine in VSC 6.1. Has anyone seen this issue, og have any ideas what could be the reason ?
I have tried to upgrade to VSC 6.2P1, but it failed - not the installation on the Windows server.
But afterward I wasn't able to run the backupjobs, or make new jobs.
When creating a new job, I reach the step, where I choose the volume, and then it says, that it cannot connect to the Virtual Storage Console - Make sure it is running.
I have then uninstalled the VSC 6.2p1, for comming back to a point where it was running, but I didn't succeed 😞
And after the uninstallation, I renamed the NetApp-folder, so it didn't bring some old configuration with in the to new installation.
I have also tried unregistering the in the ExtensionManager on the Vsphere Client.
I also installed a new Windows server, to make sure it wasn't on the server's registry there was some left over.
Now I finally managed to make it running again. - so my question is now.
What is the exact procedure for upgrading from VSC 6.2 -> VSC 6.2P1 ??
I also have som VM's that where I recieve this error:
2016-05-13 01:30:11,051 WARN - VMware Task "CreateSnapshot_Task" for entity "DKSXXXFRENFDC1v" failed with the following error: An error occurred while saving the snapshot: Failed to quiesce the virtual machine. 2016-05-13 01:30:11,067 WARN - Only a crash consistent backup will be taken for VM "DKSXXXFRENFDC1v" since VMware snapshot create operation failed.
