VMwareDisks status unknown

Dear all,

I add a VMwareDisks resource for a RDM volume, but I find SOMETIME the VMwareDisks show as status unknown and fail to online the volume. I try to add the RDM disk from vCenter manually. However the disk paths suppose to be [datastore] host1/host1_3.vmdk but it change to [datastore] host1/host1_5.vmdk automatically after apply the setting. The main.cf settiing as follow:

VMwareDisks rdm_vol (
                ESXDetails = { "10.10.11.5" = "root=xxxxx",
                                      "10.10.11.6" = "root=xxxxx",
                                      "10.10.11.7" = "root=xxxxx" }
                DiskPaths = {
                         "RDM:6000C294-6ed4-458c-18a9-53ec700ea825:[datastore] host1/host1_3.vmdk" = "2:2" }
                )

IsVMHAEnabled = true

VMRegisterWait = 120

  • vCenter 6.0
  • RedHat 6.5
  • VCS 6.2.1

As the disk path change to another name, VCS fail to monitor the RDM. Would anyone provide some suggestions about it. Thanks

1. Does the Diskpath change

1. Does the Diskpath change on all ESX hosts?

2. If you change the VMWareDiskPath attribute to [datastore] host1/host1_5.vmdk, does the agent report ONLINE?

3. Provide the ls -l output after logging into any ESX box from the [datastore] host1/ directory.
