I was trying to power on a VM via Vcenter when I encountered this error message below (months ago).
So I restarted the host then it was fine.
However, I started getting the error again which seemed intermittent.
Got any solution to get rid of the error message permanently?
I depend on you guys. Please help.
Thanks in advance.
Power On virtual machine
The operation is not allowed in the current connection state of the host.
Time: 2011/10/9 10:42:23
vCenter Server: VCENTER5-100
Error encountered while powering on a VM
The possible cause of the error is because the CPU reservation of the virtual machine has become greater than the total CPU that is available on a single processor, and therefore you will need to troubleshoot that.
Use the following procedure:
You will need to connect to the ESX or vCenter Server host using the right administrative credentials.
And then you will select the virtual machine from the inventory.
And thereafter you will right-click on the virtual machine and click Edit Settings.
You will then locate the Virtual Machine Properties dialog, and from there click the Resources tab.
You will need to select CPU from list under the Settings column.
Once done the above, you will use the slider or the Reservation text box to lower the CPU reservation value.
That is it.
