Unable to add VM's to Protection Domain

Hello,

 

New to Nutanix. I'm trying to add VM's to a protection domain via the webconsole, but some VM's I want to add aren't showing up. What's interesting is on the VM sumary page in  Prism shows I have 66 VM's, but vCenter shows 81. Is there an easy explanation for this?

 

I am on Esx 5.5 and AOS 4.5.2

 

Thanks!

How many nodes do you have in the cluster? You might have the Cvm's excluded.

Are the VM's you are trying to add to the PD already in an a different PD?

Appreciate the quick reply!

 

3 nodes and there's no correlation between the hosts they are on, datastores, etc, nothing obvious at least that stands out.

 

I've tried both adding to an existing and adding a new PD without success. Another interesting thing I notice is I currently have 3 PD's set up with a total of 19 VM's. If I add a new PD my list of available unprotected VM's to add totals 39. 39+19 = 58 which is 8 less that the VM summary tab shows.

 

Thanks!

Hi @kevinbromhead  

 

What do the VMs show for "Backup and Recovery Capable"  from the VM view in Prism?

 

Thanks,

Thanks for the respnse Mike.

 

 

All VM's show "Yes" for Backup and Recovery Capable. It only sees 63 VMs (the 3 CVM's are excluded) total here as well.
