I am aware of the steps you need to take in order to enable this feature and that a vMotion of the VM is enough to apply the config. However, if you are using vSAN is there an easier way to apply the change without a reboot of the VM?
Haven't tired the re-register as I'm looking for the most less impact method. Ideally, you make the change and away you go but I am cautious of a VM breaking.
Had a look at the reload option but it mentions "It can be invoked on inaccessible or orphaned virtual machines, but it cannot be invoked on powered on, connected virtual machines."
I want the VM to remain powered on as it could be a critical VM that needs downtime out of hours.
It could also be that the answer is you cannot do it without a restart
I did come across this in my Google search but it says the VM needs to be powered off
To resolve this issue, reload the virtual machine's .vmx configuration file.
Note: Configuration changes through .vmx file require the Virtual Machine to be Powered off.
Little confused by that statement as you can storage vmotion and it works but of course this isnt an option with vSAN
