Configuring VMotion with Duplicate IP Addresses Creates an Error (1382)


Why can I not configure my host for VMotion?


A host should not be configured for migration with VMotion if another host, with the same IP address, is already configured for migration with VMotion. If the host is configured this way, migration with VMotion behavior becomes unpredictable and errors can be generated.

Duplicate IP addresses between hosts are not supported. Make sure that all the hosts you are going to use for migration with VMotion have unique IP addresses. Do this prior to configuring a host for migration with VMotion.
