- NEW Reconfiguration process stuck in Configuring state
If you are trying to move a large VM to a different datastore, the reconfiguration process might get stuck in Configuring state.
Workaround: This issue is fixed in vSphere Replication 22.214.171.124.
- NEW Data does not sync properly after reverting to a snapshot
If a full synchronization is in progress and you revert the protected VM to a snapshot, the data may not sync properly.
Workaround: This issue has been fixed in vSphere Replication 126.96.36.199.
- NEW Reprotect process fails with an error
If you configure a replication using a seed disk, which has a different UUID from the source disk and then try to run reprotect, the process fails with the following error:
A recovered disk was not found for replicated disk with UUID xx-xx-xx-xx-xx.
Workaround: Upgrading to vSphere Replication 188.8.131.52 fixes the issue for new replications. For existing replications you must use one of the two workarounds:
Workaround 1: For replications, which are in Recovered state (after performing failover) and you hit the issue during the reprotect process, you must do one of the following:
A. Manually edit the disk database UUID (ddb.uuid) in the disks that you want to use as seeds.
B. Manually configure the replications in reverse direction and try to run the reprotect process again.
1. Upgade to vSphere Replication 184.108.40.206.
2. For replications, where you used seed disks and the disk database UUID (ddb.uuid) does not match, but the replication is not in Recovered state (failover not performed), stop the replication and select the option to retain the disks.
3. Configure the replication again, using seeds.
