Re: VSM support for vSphere 6.7?

Hello, 

 I can totally appreciate your frustration. 

  Are you planning on using VVOLs?   As that is the only major feature not available for v6.7 with EQL storage. 

 Snapshots and replication can be scheduled via the Group Manager.  

  Regards,

Don

Re: VSM support for vSphere 6.7?

Creeping up on a year since this thread was started... Is there any timeline for VSM 5.0? It sure would be nice to have and use.

Hi Don,

Yes, VVOLs are precisely what we're after. Plus all the other integration features that VSM provides (and while we're on the topic, MEM for host multi-pathing would be great too).

Without these integration features we might as well have saved ourselves a load of cash and purchased Synology or similar.

Greg

Re: VSM support for vSphere 6.7?

Hello, 

 Yes that's supported.  Try logging out and back in again.  That's a common issue when you first install it. 

Regards,

Don

I already try to log off, log back in, un-register the VSM and let it register again... No luck!

Re: VSM support for vSphere 6.7?

Hello, 

 Make sure the Management IP address is set in VCS. It's in the server settings.   If you are using DNS names for VCS and VSM make sure everything resolves by and and reverse IP. 

 Once that's all confirmed I would suggest restarting VCS and VSM. 

 If that still doesn't work I would suggest you open a support case with Dell. 

 Regards, 

Don
