Remote Site vStore Mapping not accessible


Badge
After a failed upgrade that resulted in a failed node, we reinstalled the node and added it as a remote site so we could migrate to it and reinstall the other nodes.

When I added the site on the old cluster it works as expected, but on the reinstalled node I cant add any vStore Mappings and are instead greeted with this message "Remote Datastores are either not configured or not accessible."

When I run ncli> remote-site list on the reinstalled node I get:
Status : unreachable
and on the old cluster:
Status : relationship established

Is there any log output/command that could help me troubleshoot this further?

I fixed this by using ncli:

ncli> remote-site rm name="NTNX02" force=true

Is there any firewall in between these clusters?

@sandeepmp No there is nothing that are blocking the traffic between the clusters. I can successfully create the network mappings on both sites so its only the Vstore mappings that are failing on the new cluster.

I'm having the same problem. I even tried removing the remote site to readd it but I'm being told "Error: Deletion of the remote site is currently not supported from Prism. Contact Nutanix support for further assistance." I get that even if I try with ncli.

Now this i getting silly, I span up another temporary cluster and its having the same problem. I can create the network mappings so the clusters are able to talk to each other but I am are greeted with the same message about the Remote Datastores.

And to add some detail:

My above reply is the solution for the "Error: Deletion of the remote site is currently not supported from Prism" issue. After deleting the sites from ncli I was able to create new Remote Sites with Vstore and Network mappings without issue.
