  • 1.  Unable to migrate Linux VM

    Posted Jan 09, 2018 08:03 AM

    Hi

    We have some linux servers hosted on the blade . For performing the maintenance  activity when we try to migrate the following error popup " The VM is installing the VM Tools and cannot initiate migration operation " 

    We have verified the OS level no such disk is mounted and when we check on the console VMtools is prompting to end VMtools which we did and task bar show the successful .

    But still i could see same task End VMtools on the VM console .
