Migration with VMotion Does Not Complete if an External Console is Open (1381)

Details

Why does migration with VMotion not complete when I have a console open on the virtual machine?

Solution


When a console that connects directly to the ESX Server host of a migrating virtual machine is open, the migration does not complete until that ESX Server console is closed. This does not occur when the VirtualCenter Console is open.

Use the VirtualCenter Console to view the virtual machine and close the external console.
