VCenter 5 Appliance: error while storage migrating

Hi,

I have the following VCenter 5 Appliance-error while storage migrating

Failed to initialize migration at source.  Error 195887107.  Not found.
FSR [2130706433:1334329589998519] The remote VM 251674 was not found on this host. Cannot perform fast suspend/resume. Try vMotion migration instead.
Failed to start migration: VMotion failed to start due to lack of cpu or memory resources.
Failed to allocate migration heap.
Failed to create a migrate heap of size 32942470: Not found
Failed to reserve a migration memory slice.  This host has reached its concurrent migration limit.  Please wait for another migration to complete before retrying.

Worked with VCenter on Windows before and no problem with same config (1 CPU, 3 GB ram), it appears the Virtual Appliance needs more (can't grant that on my lab)?

Correct, the vCenter 5.0 Virtual Appliance is very resource hungry, 8GB, and 2 vCPU compared to vCenter Server on a Windows 2008 R2 Server 64bit, your host server may not have enough resources available to perform the vMotion migration (whilst the VM is Power-ed ON).

Cold Migration should work.

Personally with the number of issues we've had and our clients have had with the vCenter 5.0 Virtual Appliance, we would not recommend it, unless you are really desperate to save money on a Windows License, and understand, and administer Linux servers.
