Storage vMotion Issue

Post by jcwilsonmd » Jan 04, 2016 6:42 pm

Anyone see this?

We recently upgraded to ESXi 5.5 Update 3b build: 3248547

After the upgrade the we discovered that we can no longer do live Storage vMotion between luns. If we shut the guest down we can move without issue.

After troubleshooting with VMWARE the discovered the following:

Code: Select all

Found the following entries in the vmware.log during Storage vmotion:

After following KB ID: 1031873 and disabled CBT for the VM. Storage vMotion completes.

Still waiting for VMWARE to provide more then a workaround - anyone else experience this?

Hi,

We are seeing similar issues - did you ever get any response from VMware? I haven't opened up a case yet.

Bgrds,
Finnzi

I see that there are some errors reported for change tracking information. Can you create a new VM for testing purposes and run a storage vMotion task?
