- NEW You cannot download vSphere Replication Reports
When you try to download a vSphere Replication report in a CSV format, you cannot press the Download CSV button if the name of the VM is longer than the drop-down menu box.
Workaround: This issue is resolved in vSphere Replication 18.104.22.168
- NEW When you modify the VM disks configuration, the replication goes into an Error state
When a VM is part of an ongoing replication, and you modify the VM storage configuration (add, delete, or resize disks), this action starts a replication reconfiguration task. If another reconfiguration operation is already in progress on this replication, the replication might fall into an Error state with an error. For example,
"Invalid configuration spec. Some disks are not specified for replication, nor excluded."error.
Workaround: Manually reconfigure the replication.
