2 ESX 4.1 hosts in main datacenter
1 ESX 5i host in remote datacenter
Connected via VPN 5Mbps upload to remote site - network is very stable, 100% uptime
Replication jobs are consistently failing. These happen at different times on the day, on different vms, there is no consistency to a specific vm, host, datastore that is pointing to the exact cause. Error messages received for every failure are the same:
Code: Select all
- Error: Client error: An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host Failed to process [sendSignature]. -- Error: Client error: An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host Failed to replicate content of the disk [vddk://<vddkConnSpec><viConn name="arc-edm-veeam01.corp.arcbus.com" authdPort="443" vicPort="443" /><vmxPath vmRef="vm-16" datacenterRef="datacenter-2" datacenterInventoryPath="ARC" snapshotRef="snapshot-520" datastoreName="arc-edm-vmhost01:storage2" path="arc-edm-dc01/arc-edm-dc01.vmx" /><vmdkPath datastoreName="arc-edm-vmhost01:storage2" path="arc-edm-dc01/arc-edm-dc01.vmdk" /><tran
I have two proxy servers at each site.
I have rebuilt my vCenter server, Veeam Server, Veeam proxies (all twice). I have deleted the remote datastores that were upgraded from an ESX 4.1 to ESX 5i environment, recreated as pure VMFS5 datastores.
I have tried replicating bypassing the vCenter Server, still jobs fail.
I have sent in the logs to Veeam support on numerous occasion.
I have tried disabling CBT on all vms (source and remote), no effect.
I have recreated all jobs on numerous occasions, enabled seeding, mapped to existing vms, all with no consistent success after initial replication. All initial seeds work, but subsequent replications inconsistently succeed/fail.
Testing replications of small jobs - 10 MB in size appeared to consistently replicate with no errors.
I have patched Veeam servers with patch provided by support.
I need to resolve this issue very soon as this puts us into a risk state for DR failover. If anyone has any suggestions or input, I would really appreciate your help!
