WARNING: Using MAP with VMware SRM (Site Recovery Manager) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    If you are using MAP to inventory your environment (or a clients environment) and VMware Site Recovery Manager is in use, MAP will actually assign successful inventory data to the Virtual Guest that is powered Off. It will also state that the powered off VM is actually Powered On when it's not.

    I haven't found a fix that works 100% of the time however, to reduce it the way to scan is:

    1. Scan Production VMware vCenter that has the majority of the Powered On VM's

    2. Once this completed then do an AD scan.

    3. Once you have finished all the AD scans then do another VMware only scan on the SRM hosts that are powered Off.

    You will also see this happen if you have a duplicate VM's with the same name (One powered on and One Powered off).

    To the developers. Please resolve this ASAP.

    We should be able to do a VMware only scan and then do an Active Directory scan and it assigns the inventory data to the Powered On device because how can it inventory a Powered Off device?
