Hi we had SRM replication fully running, and we lost power at our main site, so the nimble just powered off, no graceful shutdown.
We had SRM running in VMWARE no issues and have done lots of planned failovers.
Now SRM will not worK at all, when we try to fail over we get this error at step 13 in the VMWARE recovery plan -

'Failed to promote replica devices. failed to promote replica consistency group 'NIM-SRM-TEST02'. Skipping failover operation for device group 'NIM-SRM-TEST02' As initiators were missing for one or more hosts.

we are using FC, no issues with SAN zoning or anything i can see.

i have deleted all the Replicated volumes, and rebuild the replication partner setup. including in SRM.

we upgraded the nimble firmware, installed the latest SRA, rebuild the SRM servers. but its still failing with this error. we are using storage replication.

I have support case open with HP but getting hold of someone is a nighmare, any ideas or pointers would be great, we had this same setup running on 3pars for years without issues.
