I’ve setup a Capablanca appliance on vSphere environment.
I try to run SmartStateAnalysis but it fails every time.
I’m running the SSA directly from vCenter with no authentication on the hosts themselves.
I’ve tested multiple possibilities and here’s my troubleshooting:
- Botvinnik with VixDiskLib 5.5.3 -> works fine on running and shut down virtual machines
- Capablanca with VixDiskLib 5.5.3 -> works fine on virtual machines shut down but doesn’t on running vm
- Capablanca with VixDiskLib 5.5.5 -> can’t connect to host error. (code 18000)
It seems for me that Capablanca is not triggering the snapshot whereas Botvinnik do on running VMs before analysis.
Here’s the error
Unable to mount filesystem. Reason:[FFI::VixDiskLib::ApiWrapper#open (errcode=15 - VIX_E_FILE_ALREADY_LOCKED): The file is already in use [ESX01-SSD] ManageIQ/ManageIQ.vmdk]
Is there anyone else working with vmware and Capablanca and having this issue?
