    ShutdownGuest leads to vim.fault.GenericVmConfigFault / Device "PowerState" not available

    Karl666 Novice

      Hi there,


      Netware 6.5-vm on vSphere 6.0. Tools are installed and working. When shutting down the vm via vSphere-Client Netware shuts down as requested, but in the vSphere-Client the process ends with followoing errors (translated from german):


      - vim.fault.GenericVmConfigFault / Call of "VirtualMachine.ShutdownGuest" for object "vm-name" on ESXi "ip-address" has failed.

      - Device "PowerState" is not available.


      An educated guess on where to start digging is highly appreciated.
