Error “target device does not exist: host = [Cluster:xx…” When Attempting to Create/Edit a VPG with RDM Disks

Viewed 101 times

Summary

An administrator experiences a create or edit VPG task with an RDM fail.

Root Cause

A recovery cluster is selected instead of an individual host. Due to this, a sole RDM is searched for across all of the hosts in cluster. RDMs only reside on a single host, hence this fails.

Symptoms

Create/Edit VPG task fails with below error:

target device does not exist: host = [Cluster:xx...

Solution

When creating the VPG, select an individual host instead of the cluster in the Replication tab.
