Last Modified: 2016-08-28
In vCenter 6 when I try to vmotion a VM to a new host on another vDS I am getting the following errors in the compatibility check.

"Change the network and host of a virtual machine during vmotion isi not supported on the "source" host"

"Current connected network interface "network adapter 1" cannot use network XXXXXXXXX becuase the destination vDS has a different version and or vendor than the source.."

Source vDS = Version 5.1 | ESXi host version 5.1
Destination vDS = 5.1 | ESXi host version 6.0
