vCenter Support Assistant Appliance

Hello all.

Would anyone know why I am unable to migrate a virtual appliance (both host & datastore) to another cluster within the same data center?  As soon as I click on the destination datastore I receive the following:

I am able to migrate other VMs just fine.

Thank you

Have you tried with 2 migrations: migrating first datastore and then migrate host?

It seems the VM is in the local datastore of a host.

I did discover that this is happening with a specific host on the destination cluster.  2 out of 3 are good bur, when I try to migrate VMs to the other specific host, it errors out validating the datastore.  This is strange because all 3 destination hosts share the same datastore.  There's no more datastores for these 3 hosts.

can you screenshot your datastores and networking across hosts ?

In that case maybe you have lost paths to one of the DataStores? As Andrew says, post connection details, and check the Paths from Configuration > Storage

Thank you guys.  The datastore was disconnected for that host, not sure why.  I did a rescan and it all came back online.
