Hello, we have a new setup that comprises of 3 x DL380G5 hosts running fresh installs of Enterprise ESX 3.0.2. The 3 hosts are configured to run as a cluster in VC 2.0.2, utilising iSCSI SAN storage. The DL380G5 have 2x 2.33Ghz quad core CPU's each.
I have configured multiple VM's with single CPU's that can be Vmotioned across each host seemlessly. However I have just created a VM with 4 cpu's that can only be VMotioned to 1 of the 2 remaining hosts. The host that fails states
"Unable to migrate from esx03.abc.com to esx02.abc.com: Virtual machine has 4 virtual CPUs, but the host software only supports 1. Please check the licenses on the host"
The license features on all 3 hosts, appear to be the same. ESX Server Standard, Vmotion, DRS, HA, VC Agent all licensed for 2 CPU's.
Update: I've just tried starting a VM with 2 CPU's on the host and it gives the same error.
Any suggestions most welcome!!!
The same thing happened to me with 3.0.2-52542, and the solution also was the same. Releasing and re-acquiring the license enabled to me to vmotion to the server. Now I can finish updating the servers!
