Migrating VCSA 6.5U1 from 6.0 to 6.5 ESXi host

Hello,

I have a cluster of 4 hosts and trying to upgrade one after another to 6.5, but now I've the problem that I can't migrate the VCSA from a 6.0 to 6.5 host in the same cluster.

The hardware of all hosts is absolute identical, but I get an error "The target host does not support the virtual machine's current hardware requirements."

How do I get the VCSA now to an 6.5 host so I can update the last 6.0 host?

kind regards

What is configured for your vCSA VM? Do you have a local device attached? If not, can you show the configuration?

There is so special configuration, default VCSA Deployment for small environments.
No local devices connected.

I had the same issue with a handful other VM's, but I could simply shut them down, migrate and power up without problems.

But that way is not possible with VCSA.

What host hardware is this? Check the event log for that VM. What else does it say about the error?

HPE ProLiant DL380p Gen8, 6.0 and 6.5 with HPE Images, all drivers installed and up to date.

Since the Migration is not possible, there is nothing in the Event Log to see.

Does the VCSA have any snapshots?  If so, I would suggest removing them and attempt another migration.

What's the CPU series on source and destination ESXi hosts?

No Snapshots, the CPU is Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2670 v2 @ 2.50GHz and no EVC mode enabled.

Does the VSCA use any special CPU features, that got removed with ESXi 6.5?
