I have a big problem moving two VMs.
I can move all VM's in my cluster from one host to another except two. If I want to move them with vMotion, vMotion starts, stops at 20% and after some time I get the message:
Transport (VMDB) error -45: Failed to connect to peer process.
- VCSA 6.5 most recent build
- vSphere ESXi 6.5 (Build: 8294253)
- NetApp Storage, Datastore via NFS mounted
Anybody got a solution here?
Many thanks and greetings
This could be due to lack of free space in Datastore and not being able to create a swap file.
We would see following entries in hostd.log

Free up space in datastore would be my suggestion
