ViPR Controller,ViPR Controller Controller 3.6 SP2

 

Issue:

 

 

The user tries to create a volume using ViPR Controller UI that fails with the error message:   
   
    Message: No tasks were created during creation of volumes. Please check logs for more information.     
      The selected consistency group urn:storageos:BlockConsistencyGroup:xxxx is only designated for [VPLEX] volumes, not [RP, VPLEX] volumes.
   
     
                                                           

 

 

Cause:

 

 

Previously the last Recoverpoint (RP) protected source volume from the Consistency Group was deleted in the ViPR controller UI and it incorrectly did not delete all the associated RP journal volumes and the Consistency Group (CG).     
      Due to this, creation of new volume using the same CG fails.
                                                           

 

 

Resolution:
