Cloning to failover cluster instance (FCI) might fail if multiple vFC or FC initiators are attached to a host

Description

In a windows cluster if the hosts of the cluster have one or more valid initiators (vFC or FC), then clone to the FCI Instance might fail. This issue occurs because SnapCenter supports only one initiator per host.

Error message

Activity 'Cloning Resources' failed with error: Failed to clone resources, error is Mount operation failed with error: Failed to mount storage resource, error is Failed to create the volume clone. Failed to retrieve Snapshot copy information. Reason: The snapshot name does not exist.

Corrective action

You should make sure that there is only one vFC or FC initiator attached to each host.
