Performing a vMotion of a virtual machine fails with the error: Failed to write checkpoint data (offset 75485184, size 16384): Limit exceeded. (2143843)

  • 3 Ratings

Symptoms

  • Performing vMotion of a virtual machine fails.
  • You see the error:

    Failed to write checkpoint data (offset 75485184, size 16384): Limit exceeded.

  • This issue occurs usually at the end of vMotion.

Cause

During vMotion, on the destination host a buffer called checkpoint buffer is allocated to store the checkpoint data of the virtual machine. This issue occurs if the actual size of the checkpoint data to be stored exceeds the size of the checkpoint buffer. This happens if there are any changes in the virtual machine's SVGA and Frame buffer sizes during vMotion operation.

Resolution

 
If the problem still persists, contact VMware technical support after collecting the support bundles from the ESXi servers involved in the vMotion operation.
