Hi,
Based on your description, this issue seems related to storage replica configuration.
I would suggest that you try restarting storage replica service and verify if both servers acting as primary, check ‘is primary’ parameter in get-srgroup, set right server as primary and restart the storage replica service.
For your reference:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/storage/storage-replica/storage-replica-known-issues
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/storage/storage-replica/storage-replica-frequently-asked-questions
Also please check your firewall settings:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/virtualization/hyper-v/manage/set-up-hyper-v-replica

Thanks for your understanding.
Best regards,
Danny

Hello,

Checked, but everything looks fine.

From Destination:

I restarted the service storage replica and tried to configure replication with admin center.
Unfortunately no... the same error.

Hi,
This is a little bit wired.
105633-image.png
Based on the marked line, now I’m wondering if this issue is related to TCP/IP protocol. Have you tried updating the NIC drivers?
Also to install and configure the TCP/IP protocol, you can refer to this:
www.barrcentral.com/help/beps/Installing_and_configuring_the_TCPIP_protocol.htm

Hello,

In source system and destination have same configuration,: Client for Microsoft Networks, File and Printer, QoS Packets Scheduler, Reliable Multicast Protocol, TCP/IP v4, LLD and Link-Layer Topology Discover Responder and Mapper configure; not configure Microsoft Network Adapter Multiplexor Protocol, TVP/IP v6.

I installed on destination system smb 1.0 and restated it, nothing changed.
Maybe Storage Replica trying to use tcp/ip v6?

Hi,
As far as I know, by default it should be TCP/IP v4.

Best regards,

Additionally, i found one error after switch direction:

Failed to establish a connection to a remote computer.

RemoteComputerName: Name_1
LocalReplicationGroupName: SRGroup01_Name_2

Status: The protocol is not installed on the local machine.

Guidance: Possible causes include network failures, share creation failures for the remote replication group, or firewall settings. Make sure SMB traffic is allowed and there are no connectivity issues between the local computer and the remote computer. You should expect this event when suspending replication or removing a replication partnership.

Hi,
VMware and Hyper-V differs in different aspects.
For detailed information I would suggest that you contact them for advice.
To configure VMware storage replication you can refer to this:
https://docs.vmware.com/en/vSphere-Replication/8.4/com.vmware.vsphere.replication-admin.doc/GUID-C249300C-2BC0-4128-88B5-046C3DE6BC5B.html

Hello,

I need replica in os level and for this I do not see any alternatives for storage replica.
The configuration looks fine and ports ok.
But I do not understand why it does not connect to each?
Thank you.

Hello Danny,

Sorry, I forgot to come back with news =)
Issue was in OS version, unfortunately, storage replica working correct mostly between the same version of OS (source 2016 - destination 2016 and the same for 2019).
After OS in the source system was updated to 2019, storage replica started working properly.
Thank you for your time.
