vCenter 6.7 Appliance migrate option grayed out.

We have vCenter 6.7 appliance in our environment, we are migrating to new storage and it has migrate option grayed out.

Steps I performed.

1. Turn off the appliance, remove from inventory and re register.

2. Remove Host from inventory and re add in the cluster.

The above options didn't work. Can someone has steps to overcome this issue.

Thanks

Possibly due to invalid entries in vpx_disabled_methods table in VCDB.

Remove and re-add should ideally populate with new ID's in DB, however can you review the contents of vpx_disabled_methods table:

Connect to DB: /opt/vmware/vpostgres/current/bin/psql -d VCDB -U postgres

select * from vpx_disabled_methods;

and match it with id of vpx_vm

select id,dns_name from vpx_vm;
