I built a new Server with VC2 today and 2 new ESX servers running ESX3, all the licensing is working correctly.
I then added 2 ESX 2.5.3 servers and cold migrated a VM to VI3, i then followed the upgrade guide and did the "virtual hardware upgrade" however when i try to power it on i get "Virtual machine has 2 virtual CPUs, but the host software only supports 1" so i set the VM to have 1 vCPU and it powered on, i successfully upgraded the VMware tools and rebooted, the VM was then powered off and i switched it to 2 vCPUs tried powering it on and get the same message again.
I then tried recreating a new VM using the same vmdk file, however i still get the same error!!!
anyone have any ideas?
Has anyone definitively determined that this is or is not fixed in 3.5/2.5? I have a customer that is running both 3.0.2/2.0.2 and 3.5/2.5 versions. We have not seen this horrible behavior in the latest but my customer would like some closure to this issue. Thx
I also have the same problem.
I have changed the ESX server edition License type from ESX server Standard to Unlicensed.
and again changed from Unlicensed to ESX server edition.
later i did not face that problem again.
Below Screen shots will help you understand better.
