    VM "Uptime" resets after migration

    m_d_sella Enthusiast

      I am currently running ESX 3.0.2 with Virtual Center 2.0.2.  While testing DRS, I have noticed some unusual behavior in Virtual Center.  When I place a host into Maintenance Mode, DRS handles all of the VM migrations as it should and distributes the VMs across the remaining hosts in the cluster.  When these migrations occur however, Virtual Center resets the "uptime" of each VM to zero as it migrates.  It seems to me that a migration should not affect the uptime statistic for a VM in this fashion.  As such, it is not a critical issue, but ultimately I would like to provide reports to our executives that adequately represent the VM availability that we are seeing in our environment.

       

      Has anyone else seen this issue?

       

      Thanks,

      Mike
