Issue:

 

 

A ViPR Controller order to create a block snapshot fails with the following error in the UI:   
   
    Error 1013: The snapshot request is not allowed because the one or more volumes in VPlex Consistency Group are yet to associate with an Application.   
     
                                                           

 

 

Cause:

 

 

The VPLEX distributed volume (that we are creating a back-end local snapshot of) when first created was in a Consistency Group (CG) on VPLEX but has now been removed.   
   
    The backend volumes associated with the VPLEX volume still have remnants of the CG in the ViPR-C database.   
   
    Example:   
    consistencyGroup = URI: urn:storageos:BlockConsistencyGroup:6c630552-f304-4559-bf36-f4d3372daxxx:vdc1     
      inCG = true
                                                           

 

 

Change:

 

 

The VPLEX volume was recently removed from a VPLEX consistency group.                                                           

 

 

Resolution:

 

 

Perform the below steps:   

         
  1.         Inventory-only delete the VPLEX volume from VIPR Controller     
  2.      
  3.         Re-ingest the VPLEX volume.     
  4.
