Resolved Issues

  • NEW Site Recovery Manager 8.4 automatically mounts old and existing vVols datastores to all hosts

    When the Site Recovery Manger Server detects VASA storage providers registered in the vCenter Server, it automatically mounts vVol datastores to ensure seamless operation. The datastore has the same name as the name of the VASA storage container and is mounted on all hosts that are configured as available for VM recovery through the Site Recovery Manager resource mappings. Automatic mounting of datastores might be undesirable due to security or performance concerns.

    Workaround: This issue is fixed in Site Recovery Manager

  • NEW The disk partition for the Site Recovery Manager database is full

    The PostgreSQL autovacuum launcher is not working, which leads to the Site Recovery Manger database disk partition running out of free space.

    This issue is fixed in Site Recovery Manger
