3par VVol Replication


I'm trying to setup a vmware-vvol datastore with Hpe 3PARs. All works properly if i don't setup replication, but as soon as i configure replication, moving or creating Volumes in these VVol datastore are impossible

The error displayed in vmware is : Failed to create directory test (Cannot Create File)

Environment :

VMware :

Esxi : 6.7 (build 13644319):

VCenter : 6.7u1

Re: 3par VVol Replication

Hi Admin_UHB, 

From your post I understand, you are creating a replication on a base volume from 3PAR side on your datastore volume,

This will not cause any issues on creating volumes,

However I found below VMware KB related to the error you have reported,



This may be helpful,
