I have enabled default DRS options in the cluster. I was expecting the VM to migrate out when I enter a host to maintenance mode. Some reason it did not happen. It says either shutdown the VM or migrate them.

Are they connected to floppy drives to cdroms (isos)?

Can you check if you can manually vMotion the VMs, between servers?

Are you licensed for DRS?
