    Successful Migration through vSphere GUI but not through PowerCLI

    extremeSDN Lurker

      I am having some trouble performing a migration using PowerCLI.  I am getting the error: "Unable to access the virtual machine configuration: Unable to access file [datastore1 (3)] jcarroll-vni-3501-server-move/jcarroll-vni-3501-server-move.vmx".       I am able to successfully migrate various VM's through the vSphere Web Client, I only receive this error when attempting the following PowerCLI move command:  PowerCLI C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\Infrastructure\vSphere PowerCLI> Get-VM -Name jcarroll-vni-3501-server-move | Move-VM -Destination x.x.x.x.

      Again, this issue does not occur when migrating this VM via Web Client.  I have checked the datastore, and the file is present and named correctly.  I'm not sure what the issue could be.

      Any info/help would be greatly appreciated.

      Thanks.
