    Putting Host in Maintenance Mode (VM is having a serial port connection from host)

    Wajeeh Enthusiast

      Dear All,


      I have a question concerning putting host to maintenance mode. There is firmware upgrade activity and on one of our host there is a VM having a serial cable connection. The cable is connected to Esxi host and mapped to that VM. Now when selecting to put in maintenance mode, how I can move this VM ? I will make it shutdown that is not a problem but host will not go to maintenance mode until VM is moved even it is power off state, this is my understanding.


      Anybody here can share his experience for similar case ? Please note version of ESxi in use if 5.0 Update 2.


      Waiting for response.
