EE, thanks in advance for reading
We have a Microsoft cluster VM with RDMs in Physical mode for the controller type. We get the error below when trying to vMotion to another host. (Storage located in a DRS cluster)
"Device 'SCSI controller 1' (&2) is a SCSI controller engaged in bus-sharing"
The VMware article states the workaround is to turn off the server and migrate or to switch the mode from Physical to Virtual but that also requires a shutdown. The latter method actually isn't really cluster supported since shared machines must be pinned to the same host thus defeating the purpose of clustering and highly available, correct me if I'm wrong.
1) Is there another workaround to migrate the VM live maybe via command line i.e. convert the controller to virtual or none then switch back as soon as the machine is migrated?
2) Why use M$ cluster in VMware environments with Fault Tolerance in 6.0? Additionally, you have shadow copies, DFS and SAN level snapshots in addition to your backups and keep it simple.
