VMware vMotion errors
Posted on 2014-10-15
I have a setup with 3 VMware hosts on vcenter server foundation.
I built everything in a lab environment before moving it to a datacenter.
Everything was tested in the lab and vmotion worked properly. Now that I have moved it all to the datacenter, I have one host that I can migrate VMs from but not to.
All hosts are either Xeon E5420 or E5410.
There are 2 different errors I receive:
The target host does not support the virtual machine's current hardware requirements.
XSAVE is unsupported
XSAVE SSE State is unsupported
To resolve CPU incompatibilities use a cluster with enhanced vmotion compatibility (EVC)
The virtual machine requires hardware features that are unsupported or disabled on the target host:
If possible, use a cluster with Enhanced vMotion Compatibility enabled (EVC)
CPUID details: incompatibility at level 0x1 register 'ecx'
Host bits: 0000:0000:0000:1000:0010:0010:0000:0001
Ive tried editing the CPUID mask on a vm but no luck. I shouldn't have to with processors all from the same series correct?
Are there any BIOS settings I need to check besides VT and No execute?
