issue capturing virtual disks with latest SD version


Recommended Posts

Hello, I recently upgraded to the latest version of SD enterprise, and the VMDK files ive been using before the upgrade are no longer working. The error generated is " unable to connect to virtual disk". Has anyone encountered this problem yet? I have a call in with SD support, but wanted to ask here in case someone got back quicker. Thanks!

Logs from the capture app below:

Hello,

Usually if there is anti-virus on the host or the actual image this error occurs. If you have AV on your host, disable and try to capture again. If on image, remove it and attempt to capture again. Another instance when we have seen this error is if the VM is in a bad state. We recommend starting the virtual reference machine, restarting it, then gracefully shutting it down if this is the case. Then again, attempt to recapture.

Thanks,

SmartDeploy Support

No antivirus on the host at this point, and I have 4 VMDK's that all worked literally just before the upgrade of smart deploy. All 4 give the same error at this point, unable to connect to virtual disk. If I need to boot my VM's back up, shut them down and copy them from the datastore's again, that's pretty crappy. It will take me probably 1 1/2 days to copy all of the VM's from their datastores again.
