Relocate virtual machine error: Invalid configuration for device ‘xx’

Posted on 19 dicembre 2014 di


From vmware site:

Performing a vMotion or cold storage and host migration fails at 99% with the error: Invalid configuration for device

This issue occurs because the Distributed Switch port is deleted by vCenter Server due to a race condition during a cold migration or vMotion migration.

As a workaround, remove the virtual Ethernet adapter from the virtual machine before performing the migration. After the virtual machine arrives at the destination, the virtual Ethernet adapter can be re-added. 

Warning: This workaround will interrupt virtual machine networking and may require that the IP addressing be re-applied within the guest operating system.
