An administrator may encounter a situation where the option to preseed a particular volume, when configuring a VPG to replicate to a Provider vDC, is grayed out. This article explains the reason why this might be encountered, and possible workarounds.
All versions up to and including 2.0 Update 3 (Xeme).
- A cloud site administrator can temporarily disable vCD masking from the cloud site Zerto Virtual Replication instance, in order to configure a VPG with the preseed functionality. Once the VPG has been saved, masking can re-enabled.
- A customer site administrator can create a VPG, without configuring preseeding. Upon saving the VPG, a cloud site administrator can then edit the VPG to point to the desired preseed disks.
