VMware: VMware Data Recovery – Could not connect to Data Recovery on the appliance

May 24th, 2011 1 comment

A colleague got some trouble connecting with the VMware Data Recovery appliance, received this warning:

Error: Could not connect to the Data Recovery on the appliance

Please make sure the Data Recovery appliance is powered on. If the problem persists, please restart the Data Recovery appliance

Time for some troubleshooting:

– Ping test was successful;
– Could resolve DNS names;
– Rebooted the appliance;
– No weird error in the event log;

 

Resolution:

After checking the appliance version (VMware Data Recovery 2.0.1131) and the Plugin-Version (VMware Data Recovery Plugin 1.1.37) I thought.. maybe I need to update the plugin

image

 

After upgrading the plugin to version 1.2.1.3 I was able to connect the appliance again:

Result:

VMware: Import Appliance > Device ‘VirtualCdrom’ uses a controller that is not supported

April 19th, 2010 No comments

Today tried to import the ESX Deployment Appliance (EDA) in vCenter 4, but after File > Deploy OVF template > selecting destination host I received this error message:

Device ‘VirtualCdrom’ uses a controller that is not supported. This is a general limitation to the virtual machine’s virtual hardware version on the selected host

To modify the VMware Hardware Version from default version 7 to 4 you can use the VMware vCenter Converter Standalone 4.0.1 Now I was able to import the EDA Appliance in my vCenter.
