Issue/Introduction

Identify a known issue that will cause Bulk and RAV migrations to not progress.

Symptoms:
Using HCX service update R142, Bulk and RAV migrations will not progress beyond 0% during initial sync and will remain in "Transfer Started" status.

Cause

If the VM has disks in multiple Data Stores (DS) with the same name, VR replication will fail due to conflicting file names.

Resolution

The issue is resolved in service update R143. Upgrade to that release or latter is required.

Workaround:
None.

Additional Information

Impact/Risks:
VR Bulk and RAV migrations will have to be aborted. No impact to VM's services as the migrations will simply roll back.
This only affects HCX deployments running service update R142.
