Problem with VM or Datastore folder with “(1)” appended to the name

Viewed 176 times

Summary

After performing a failover, you might see some of the VM or datastore folders with "(1)" next to it.

Root Cause

Zerto will add a (1) to the environment if there is already a folder or VM with the same name in the environment.
Zerto will not write over or use the same folder if disks are already in the same named folder.

Symptoms

After a failover, seeing datastore folders and VM names with (1) next to it.

Solution

This is expected behavior.
To work around this scenario, ensure that protected disk names are unique prior to the failover task.
