If you generate a vSphere Replication log bundle and at the same time attempt to run a recovery, the recovery might fail.

Problem

In heavily loaded environments, generating log bundles can cause vSphere Replication connection problems during recovery operations. Recovery fails with the error

A generic error occurred in the vSphere Replication Management Server. Exception details: 'Failed write-locking object: object_ID'.

Cause

vSphere Replication server is blocked when the log bundle is generated. This situation occurs if the storage for the vSphere Replication virtual machine is overloaded.

Results

Rerun the recovery. If the recovery still fails, reevaluate the storage bandwidth requirements of the cluster on which vSphere Replication is running, and the network bandwidth if the storage is NAS.
