I configured the replication interfaces and verified, then created a connection. When I try to replicate a block LUN to VSA-02 the progress is hung at 66% (Creating replication session after provisioning destination). I've tried rebooting the 2nd VSA and it is stuck in service mode. Any ideas how to reset it so I can try again?
I have the same issue, sort of. The identical situation occurred with the replication, but I was replicating a NAS server.. The source went down and only comes up in service mode. I can login into the VSA with service credentials but none of the recommended fixes work. I had to re-initialize the VSA.
SO, is there a problem with the replication that corrupts the VM?
Problem is repeatable. Tried replication from new VSA and it crashed during initial replication of a LUN. Consistently crashing now. Will come up in Service mode but will require reimaging (full wipe).
Won't be trying this again until I hear a fix.
I just tried this and it works fine for me. I can't seem to reproduce this issue. Are you able to collect and upload the logs from both VSAs? You can get them from Service -> Service Tasks -> Collect Service Information.
I'll set it up again today. I have to re-initialize the source VSA and sometimes after the replication I can no longer get into it even in service mode. I can get the logs from the destination VSA though.
I'll upload when I get it done. I'm having to re-initialize both VSAs as I cannot clean up the old replication settings!!
I've uploaded 3 log files. 1 from the source and 2 from the destination. The second destination log is from after the session started and failed. The source VSA has crashed three times so far, one during the replication session (66%) and twice when trying to access the GUI.
I will try to generate a log from the console if I can.
4th log file uploaded. Had to time it just right between crashes.
