  • unable to offline migrate VM into another datastore in ESXi 4 ?

    Hi Everyone,

    I'm having problem in this particular VM in which I successfully suspend it but then when I tried to migrate this into different datastore (same iSCSI SAN, different VMFS LUN partition) i got time out error ?

    this VM is just 400 GB in size with thin provision.

    today when i tried to shutdown the VM and perform datastore migration and it failed as well, here's the error log from hostd log file.

    I also found out that there is a snapshot with the description of "Helper snapshot for online consolidate." I'm not sure what is that for as i didn't create that manually ?

    If anyone can or know where to see the detailed error log message that'd be great.

    Thanks.

      Re: unable to offline migrate VM into another datastore in ESXi 4 ?

      Hi,

      Few things need to be consider be4 VM migration
      1) Any physical drive like CD drive, etc should not be connected to the VM
      2) If any snapshot is running, need to be stop
      3) CP family must be same for the both host, if EVM is not enable
      4) Both the LUN (source and the destination) are visible to both host means shared storage
      if all the things is ok pls check VM tool is updated or not.

        It'll be the snapshot that is causing the migration issue.

        Please remove the snapshot, if the server is working as expected, and try again.
