EMC Networker vProxy VM Backup Issue – Error disabling storage migration
This is one of the major issue with emc networker vproxy backup .The workaround for solving the issue , we have to enable the storage migration from proxy console
Steps to verify issue:
- Log in to vProxy as root
- Change to bin directory
- Run below command to load library path:
- Check if the migration is disabled with ‘vmconfig’ tool:
./vmconfig -c info -k "vm-MOREF" -l moref -p Password-for-vCenter -u username-for-vCenter -v vcentername NOTE: to get the 'vm-MOREF' go to NMC, click 'show message' and 'Get Full log', here you will see the MOREf similar to 'vm-1311'. For more help- type './vmconfig' Example output: Connected to session on vCenter 'vc.ad.box' Version '5.5.0 build-2646482, API:5.5', Uuid:F8C1509A-EEFA-47E7-AF4A-87C5804B27E6. Searching for virtual machine with MORef "vm-94" ... Querying vCenter for definition of virtual machine with MORef of "vm-94" ... Found virtual machine "VM1" with MORef "vm-94". Name: "VM-dir-101". CBT Enabled: true. Migration Enabled: false.
- If Migration Enabled is ‘false’- proceed with workaround
- If Migration enabled is ‘true’- further diagnosis may be needed. In this case, there is no need to apply workaround.
Note – “vm-MOREF” is the VM-ID of the virtualmachine shows the error , you will get this from full log option .
Run vmconfig tool with “enable-migration” to manually enable migration
./vmconfig -c info -k "vm-MOREf" -l moref -p **** -u username -v vcentername -c "enable-migration" example: ./vmconfig -c "enable-migration" -k vm-94 -l moref -p *** -u email@example.com -v 10.1.3.4
