CD ROM is missing after failover/Move operations

Viewed 186 times

Summary

IDE devices are typically bound to local site resources (ISO file or HW device).
Therefore, a VM with a mounted floppy or cdrom will recover without it.  Upon failover/Move operations, Zerto clears the CDROM and Floopy settings (from the VMX).

Steps


As a workaround, please view the attached VMware KB: 
https://www.vmware.com/support/developer/PowerCLI/PowerCLI51/html/Set-CDDrive.html 
You can use PowerCLI to script the addition of a CD-ROM, and use the recovery script feature to run such a script. 

Please read the following KB  - "Pre/Post Recovery Scripts with Zerto"
