Problem with NIC Disconnected Upon Failover to vCD

Viewed 269 times

Summary

An administrator may experience after a seemingly successful Zerto Failover that the recovery VMs have disconnected NICs.

Root Cause

This is a VMware issue reported in this KB.

Symptoms

The NICs are disconnected on the recovery VMs upon failover to the vCD site.

Solution

According to the KB, there is no current permanent resolution. 

However, there are workaround steps that can be taken:

  1. Ensure that the target Storage Policy for a replication is accessible only by a single Provider VDC resource pool.

  2. Ensure that SDRS is disabled when using datastore clusters in the destination site.

If the above points are confirmed and issue persists, it is recommended to engage VMware directly.
