    Issues with VMotioning VMs on local storage but not cold VMotion

    chicagovm Hot Shot

       

      I have 2 ESX servers utilizng a x-over cable for VMotion for testing purposes.

       

       

      The local VMFS storage was setup on both. When I cold VMotion it moves the VM and disk files over.

       

      When I try to hot VMotion I get errors regarding the following: The VM has no real OS at this point as it just has a 8GB HD1.

       

       

      Unable to access the file xxx.vswp

       

       

      HD1 is not accessible to the destination host. Unable to access file xxx.vmdk

       

       

      Any ideas?

       

       

       

       

       

      Same happens with VM that has an OS on the VMDK.
