Offsite Clone on VMs over 2TB

KB Number:
000001088

Symptoms:
When trying to perform an offsite clone of a VM that has a volume 2TB or greater, the clone operation will report to be successful, but the cloned VM will not contain the data of the source volume.  In a Windows OS, the disks are visible in Disk Management, but they are unallocated and the data on them is not accessible.

Cause:
This is an issue that exists due to a 32bit variable which holds the size of the clone at a specific point.  

Solution:

Upgrade ZVR to 4.5U1 or higher.  The variable which holds the size of the clone is now capable of handling 2TB (and higher) volumes.


Affected Versions:
4.0U7 or below.

Hypervisor:
VMWare, Hyper-V
