Hi All,

Can anyone here please assist me in why I cannot start the newly deployed VM on NFS and the normal VMFS iSCSI datastore with the below error:

I've been using vSphere Windows console and also Web console, both reported the same issue.

Yes it is not allowing me to turn on any new VM deployed after I upgraded to VCSA 6.0U2 and ESXi 6.0u2

But the existing VM is running fine.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

OK, when I login using root to the ESXi server I can start the VM on.

is thisbecause the account vsphere.local does not have the permission set as the Administrator on the VCenter level ?

ESXi management - e.g. direct connecting to host, ignores any Management by vCenter Server.

Administrator@vsphere.local has overall management, and is "superuser" and can do anything.
