Storage Vmotion fails and takes everything down

Postby oscaru » Mon Mar 18, 2019 12:25 am

Hi,

I think I might have found a bug with the latest Windows version (build 12767) and vmware storage vmotion.

If I try to migrate VMs from a Datastore which is hosted on a non HA starwind LUN, to a Datastore that is hosted on a on a HA starwind lun, the 1st StarWind server crashes and takes the whole cluster down, and no ESXi host can access any of the datastores hosted on HA devices.

Restarting the StarWind Virtual SAN Service doesn't fix the problem, the only fix is to restart the starwind server, and after that every lun and datastore come back online, and a new fast sync starts.

I have replicated this issue 4 times and have isolated this only when migrating VMs from the non HA LUN.

Since I am using an NFR license, I don't have support to open a case. Any thoughts or hints?
