Issue

  • VMware Site Recovery Manager (SRM) displays an Array Pair device status of "Failover In Progress" for a relationship that has been failed over to the disaster recovery site and Re-protected (mirror reverse re-synced) via SRM. The Re-protect operation fails indicating .vmx files need to reside on a protected datastore. When observing the NetApp SnapMirror Protection relationships, the mirrors have successfully been reverse re-synced to the DR location and SRM placeholder VMs are present in the new target vCenter cluster. The Array Pair continues to show “Failover In Progress” even though the Re-protect has failed

Failover occured. Marking the source device as read-only (sic)
