GRE Hangs at loading when trying to request a new restore
We currently have 2 environments at 2 different locations in an active / active configuration. Both site are identical in setup.
HP B6200 StoreOnce VTL
2 x Media server per site
DP A.09.07 build 109
Vsphere 6.0.0 build 3271482
GRE agent version and plugin version are not being displayed from the about section
For around 1 month now we have lost the ability at both sites to restore through the GRE plugin. As far as we can tell, nothing has changed from an infrastrutcure perspective and no updates applied.
When click on the plugin each screen (GRE Settings, GRE Requests etc) the screen hangs and just says loading and goes no further.
Our Network team has checked the firewalls and all ports are open.
Has anyone experienced a similar issue?
Last 2 months I have same symstom but when I selecting Linux mount proxy. Supporter do lots of work and basically have imported Mount Proxy with IP address, mounted NFS share on target VM and the operation done.. You have to make sure target client able to access mount proxy server or GRE agent able to contact vCenter plugin also.
Check the cell_info file for the component vmwaregre_agent, login into each hosts and kill any vmwaregre_agent.exe if there's any process hanging.
If still fails, Please duplicate the issue. and collect the virgo_log from the vCenter and upload it here.
If there's not enough information to determine the root cause. I would recommend first to upgrade at least to 9.09 since 9.07 is a very old build version and then open a support case to enable debugs for the Web Client service and INET debugs from each Mount Proxy.
