Incident Start: 23 June 2022 00:13 PT
Incident End: 23 June 2022 06:36 PT
Duration: 6 hours, 23 minutes
Affected Services and Features:
Google Cloud customers using VMWare Engine experienced connectivity issues while using vSphere, vCenter and NSX in us-central1a zone for a duration of 6 hours, 23 minutes.
From preliminary analysis, the issue was caused due to a network switch-over not working as expected during a planned maintenance window of ToR switches. The issue was mitigated by performing a file system recovery and restart of related services on the resources hosted by Google Cloud VMware Engine.
Google engineers have paused the maintenance upgrade and also all redundant devices have been brought back to operational state. We are also working with the impacted customers to check the state of remaining workload VMs and shall assist in recovery if required.
