Applies to

  • SnapCenter Server (SC)
  • SnapCenter Plug-In for VMware (SCV)

Issue

  • SC fails to backup VMDKs due to a storage resolution failure 
  • The following errors might be shown in Job Details page of SC UI:

Activity 'Storage Discovery' failed with error: Failed to resolve the storage associated with the VMware virtual disks <VMDK_UUID>.
Activity 'Send EMS Messages' failed with error: Unable to find storage system for given resources. EMS message instead sent to the storage connection accessible by this user:<SVM_NAME>


  • The vmcontrol.log will indicate that SnapCenter Server is not configured with SCV although the host is already added:
