Error description

  • When trying to restore a VMware Virtual Machine (VM) to a
    datastore cluster that is shared between different ESXi host
    clusters, these shared datastore clusters are only seen on one
    of the host clusters in the Storage Protect Plus restore wizard.
    
    
    As a result, the shared datastore cluster can not be selected
    as a restore destination when restoring a VM to some of the ESXi
    host clusters.
    
    
    IBM Spectrum Protect Plus Versions Affected:
    IBM Spectrum Protect Plus 10.1.x

Problem conclusion

  • In IBM Spectrum Protect Plus before 10.1.15.3, cluster shared
    datastores were not included as restore destinations due to a
    bug in the destination filtering logic. This bug has been
    resolved in IBM Spectrum Protect Plus 10.1.15.3 and 10.1.16,
    resulting in the expected destination being visible.
