Storage V-Motion

L1 Bithead



Our Virtualization team Storage vmotioned all the VMs on a specific host and that included VM-Series Firewalls for NSX as well.


Resulting that the firewalls pass 0 kbps of throughput and dropping all the packets. We were able to identify this by looking at the throughput of the firewall which was 0.


Does anyone know why storage vmotion breaks the firewall?

Did you suspend the internal heartbeat monitoring prior to vMotion? Are you running at least 10.0.1 or later so maintaing traffic flows is actually supported? 

No, this was done by the IT department and internal heartbeat monitoring was not disabled. We are on 9.1.8. Thanks!


@BPry Can you please elaborate on this?
