I converted a desktop to a VM to work on VMware Workstation using VMware Converter.
After I migrate this VM from VMware Workstation to ESXi 6.7.
Now I have 2 issues :
How can I solve this issue?
Thanks for your help.
ESXi does not support sound controllers. You must remove this device from the VM's configuration.
Thanks for your quick reply daphnissov
In fact I saw some links like this sanbarrow.com or like this https://bohemiangrove.co.uk/sound-from-a-vm-on-esxi/ or this
I thought it was possible
Is it only for ESXi 5 and not 6.7 ?
If I go in settings on the virtual machine I don't see device for audio in the list.
But if I edit the vmx file I see some lines with audio.
How can I remove this ?
It is technically possible but unsupported and can lead to instabilities. You will have to manually remove those lines from the VMX file and then reload the virtual machine.
Thanks it works!
> Device 'HD audio ' has a backing type that is not supported.
This does not mean that ESXi does not support virtual audio devices.
It means that the audio device specified in the vmx-file of your VM is invalid for an ESXi-host.
To clean up remove all parameters that start with sound.*
from the vmx-file and only keep
sound.present = "true"
Then ESXi will try to assign a soundcard for that VM on next boot - if your host supports that.
