Problem with VM Previously Migrated with Cross vCenter vMotion not Listing During Create/Edit VPG

Viewed 236 times

Summary

An administrator may not be able to find a VM to protect via Zerto if previously migrated via Cross vCenter vMotion.

Root Cause

When moving a VM using Cross vCenter vMotion, VMware does not copy the VM path. This results in the ZVM unable to detect the VM during VPG creation process.

Symptoms

VM does not list during VPG creation/edit process.

Solution

To workaround this issue, clone the VM and protect the cloned VM.

To avoid this issue in future, avoid using Cross vCenter vMotion.
