Cannot Edit Serial Port Setting of a Virtual Machine Migrated or Cloned from a Linux GSX Server to a Windows GSX Server (1392)


Why can I not edit the serial port setting of my virtual machine?


When a virtual machine is migrated or cloned between an ESX Server and GSX Server host, you cannot edit the serial port setting through the customization process.

After the virtual machine is migrated or cloned, then use the virtual machine Properties dialog box to edit the serial port setting.
