I have running vSphere 4.1 EE + allocated to 5 ESXi Servers.
The VM is on a Dell 2950 that has 2 sockets, with 4 cores per socket, and 8 logical processors
I am trying to move the VM that is powered down to a Dell R710 that has 2 sockets, with 6 cores per socket, and 24 logical
I am not sure what is going on,, Is it the CPU differences?
The vSphere ESXi host where you're trying power on virtual machine is really licensed with Enterprise Plus license ? The VM was running before or you just changed and are trying power on ? Can you tell me the version of VM hadware ?
I powered off the VM and tried the Migrate.
I have a 10 CPU license.
i just noticed,, 4 of the 2950s that have 2 CPUs and have EE+
The R710 is showing Enterprise.
I am not sure why the Licenses for EE+ show 0 CPUs available?
I should have 2 more left...
The maximum number of vCPU for a VM running on vSphere ESXi 4.0 Enterprise is 4: VMware KB: Comparison of product offerings for vSphere 4.x and VMware Infrastructure 3.x
I found it, I had another 2950 in another cluster set to use EE+
I set the serve to use Essentials Plus and freed up the EE +
I then set theR510 to use EE+ and was able to migrate the VM
