I have not seen this message before and would like to know what it is telling me.
Sep 27 21:53:46 guad105 vmkernel: 0:10:17:48.619 cpu5:3962)WARNING: Migrate: 1148: 4292912269: Failed: Migration protocol error (0xbad003e) @0x8c2968
Sep 27 21:53:56 guad105 vmkernel: 0:10:17:58.692 cpu6:3944)WARNING: Migrate: 6556: No migration found for vmm leader 3944.
I have not seen any ill effects in my VM's. I am more interested in the first line since it has the words error and failed.
I agree that something happened during vmotion. Most error codes point to specific problems to look for. I imagine that is the case here since someone had the foresight to use the word "bad" in the error code.
Some routine triggered the event. This error code never showed up in any of my logs until I started using 64bit VMs. More to the point, I think I know which GOS and program running in the VM caused the problem. (Windows 2003 EE R2 x64 running IOzone)
I do not think the certification tool for 64bit GOS would have produced this error since the VMs are not transferred from server to server during the server certification uptime test.
If you file an SR and give me the SR number, I can take a look at the logs. I sort of doubt it has anything to do with 64-bit VMs in particular, but I'd have to have the logs to know for sure.
Is there are any updates on this error. We are also receiving the same error when do the migration of the server from ESX server to the other ESX Server. with the same hexadecimal number. If there are any updates please let me know.
I am also seeing this error. Although, along with the 0xbad0003e message, I also get an 'End of File' error. I have an SR open. If I get it resolved, I'll keep this thread updated.
I did have a case open with VMware, but I couldn't wait for them to try to solve it. I ended up doing cold migrations so that I could keep my project moving.
If anyone finds out what might be causing this, please keep this thread updated.
We are seeing this as well with live 64-bit W2K3 Standard VMotions -- strange thing is that the VM still lands on the Target host (eventually) but is reported in Virtual Center as having failed...
I have had the same problem, with a bit of experimenting did resolve my problem.
I changed the IP address/VMOtion on the host I was getting the Message and that have fixed the protocol error, migrations are succesfull now.Reverted to the old IP after 10 mins all good now...hope this helps gentlemen...
You need to disable and then re-enable vmotion on each esx. Or reboot all your esx.
You can check the explanation here: http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/microsite.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=1010672...
Can you please help.
I am having same issues, this just happening after moving 15 host from VI to vCentre 4.0 but affecting one particular Host. I have done the suggested task but still having same issues thogh some machines were able to migrate but very few around 1/2 the rest just timed out and or give the error "A general system erro occurred: Migrationfailed while copying data, Migration protocol error" the full details shows protocol error 0xbad003e
Any suggestions will be highly appreciated
