yes for windows 2008 vm with disk.uuid enabled in vmware commvault will take multiple snapshot because the vmware will do application quience internally if these options are selected so a consistent snapshot needs a second snap.
this message is harmless as we try to reset the flag before the disk becoming online.
The device, \Device\Harddisk8\DR9, is not ready for access yet.
Microsoft has provided a lot of hot fixes for the VDS crash but commvault does the same operation
as a rescan kicked of from disk mgmt.
Unexpected provider failure. Restarting the service may fix the problem. Error code: 80070037@02000014
in Dell equalogic we have seen this error because dell equalogic was not recognising the volume properties option to allow multiple initiators to login.
this happens because VSA proxy and esx tries to login at the same time.
it is expected to allow login from multiple initators to Snap to confirm the above issue a error event would also be found in dell equalogic saying multiple initiator attempts was not honored.
if SAn mode is not required then if ISCSI is disabled in VSA proxy this even should not occur.
Login request failed. The login response packet is given in the dump data.
please make sure the below hot fix is in place
and also disable DC service if running on the VSa proxy machine by setting below regkeys.
