The following table lists the issues that you might encounter while restoring virtual machines instantly or migrating instantly restored virtual machines to production:
|PHN-47124||If you use “%” in the restored virtual machine name of an existing virtual machine on a vCenter, the instant restore of the virtual machine fails.
Do not use “%” in the virtual machine name if the source virtual machine exists on the vCenter.
|PHN-49458||Instant restore from a hot restore point fails and you get the following error when data is backed up to cloud as connection to CloudCache is not successful:
Error 374: Data block not present
Perform the following steps:
|PHN-49154||The Audit Trail shows incorrect entries when you instantly restore a virtual machine, migrate the instantly restored virtual machine to production, or delete an instantly restored virtual machine. For example, for instant restore and migration to production, Audit Trail shows Restore to Original and for deletion of an instantly restored virtual machine, the Audit Trail incorrectly shows Delete.|
|PHN-51069||If you cancel an instant restore migration job when it is 88 or 89% complete, the user interface may show that the job has been canceled, but it may run to 100% completion in the background. The job status takes 2 minutes to refresh by when the migration may have been completed.|
|PHN-51146||If the root folder gets completely filled, instant restore fails and you get the following error message:
Error in creation of Datastore.
|PHN-47310||Instant restore fails if performed from a higher version to a lower version of ESXI or Vcenter. For example, if you have taken a backup on vCenter version 5.5, you cannot restore a VM from version 5.5 to version 5.1. For more information, see ESXi/ESX hosts and compatible virtual machine hardware versions list (2007240).|
|PHN-50925||Alerts indicating that the CloudCache storage is getting full are not generated until the storage is completely full.|
|PHN-50105||The virtual machine is migrated to production even if you change the mapping of the backup set to a different Linux CloudCache while the migration job is in progress.|
|PHN-46179||If you rename or delete an instantly restored VM from a vCentre, it does not reflect on Management Console.|
|PHN-52116||The disk provisioning of an instantly restored VM sets to thin when the VM is migrated to production.|
The instant recovery job may fail when the ESXi host has multiple virtual NIC cards (VMkernel adapters). Navigate to the Hosts and Clusters page of the vSphere UI to determine the number of virtual NICs configured for an ESXi host.
Select an ESXi host that has a single virtual NIC.
