I am attempting to sVMotion a vm that is failing to move from the source to the designation datastore. I tried the following procedure:
I have seen writing to a NFS server cause timeouts. Try increasing the 'fsr.maxSwitchoverSeconds' parameter by editing the vmx file manually, or by using VI under Edit Settings, Options Configuration Parameters.
i think if i could power the VM off, it would migrate
but its a customer VM
think it is timing out to to the swap space being used
which, a reboot would solve
there was a 300 MB memory limit on the VM, configured for 8 GB
using 1.31 GB of swap
ANy recommendation on how to proceed?
