I am fali to move a VM on another ESxi Host

14) I turned on Maintenance mode in an ESX host, all the VM’s has been migrated to another host, but only one VM failed to migrate? What are the possible reasons?

Check these possible cases:

1. Is the VM in the same shared datastore as the other VMs

2. Is the other host resource setting preventing the vm to be migrated

3. Post the last set of vmkernel logs to know more about the failure

4. Is by any chance, any additional disks are configured as RDM

Maybe the vmware tools install over the VM was launched...

1.VM might be having the Snapshot file .

2. VM might be inserted with a CD/USB(Pendrive), Which is Mounted that may also a option
