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:
Screenshot of 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.

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.
