XCOPY VAAI Primitive Not Working with Storage vMotion

July 6th, 2012 by jason Leave a reply »

Quick VAAI tip as we head into the weekend.  This showed up unexpectedly in lab testing – If you’ve built a new ESXi 5.0 host or cluster of hosts and the VAAI copy offload (XCOPY) primitive isn’t working as expected with Storage vMotion, among other things, verify the Hostname in the DNS Configuration via the DCUI that you’ve named the hosts properly as opposed to leaving the field at the default of localhost.

    Very appealing, may possibly you tell us the link linking VAAI and the hostname Duncan ?
