SRM SWAP File error
Posted on 2013-11-26
Im currently trying to get our SRM (Version 5.0.1) working, but am having an issue with the SWAP files.
We have two VNXs one at each site and we have LUNs that we are replicating, Ive Created the IP mapping and Protection groups and the Recovery PLans we want.
THe machines that are on SRM ive edit their VMX file so point to a none replicated LUN by doing the following:
"1.Power off the virtual machine.
2.Unregister the virtual machine. Right-click the virtual machine in the Inventory and choose Remove from Inventory.
3.Connect to the host:
¿For ESX, use an SSH client. For more information, see Connecting to an ESX host using a SSH client (1019852).
¿For ESXi, use Tech Support Mode. For more information, see Tech Support Mode for Emergency Support (1003677) or Using Tech Support Mode in ESXi 4.1 and ESXi 5.x (1017910).
4.Change directory to the folder where the virtual machine resides:
5.Edit the virtual machine's configuration file with a text editor.
6.Add this line:
sched.swap.dir = /vmfs/volumes/datastore/
7.Register the virtual machine again. For more information, see Registering or adding a virtual machine to the inventory on vCenter Server or on an ESXi/ESX host (1006160)."
However when i run a Test on a Recovery plan the servers wont boot up and have the following error:
"unable to create a swap file the value of sched swap dir specified in the vms configuration file is invalid"
Id be greatful on how to resolve this
