KB VMware: VM vMotion fails because of multiple VM registration


A pretty old Knowledge Base article has been updated by VMware as the issue is still existing when running vSphere 6.

Looking at the symptoms mentioned in VMware KB 1005051

  • Virtual machine appears to be running or registered on multiple ESX/ESXi hosts:
  • This issue occurs when:
    • A vMotion fails to complete correctly or times out in VirtualCenter.
    • A DRS issue where virtual machines are migrated by vMotion automatically in quick succession.
    • When a machine is powered on during VMware HA failover.
    • The Service Console on an ESX/ESXi host is low on memory starving the vpxa process.
  • In vCenter Server, you see the virtual machine as appearing on one ESX/ESXi host for a few seconds, then it seems to be on the other.
  • The virtual machine may appear to jump back and forth among different ESX/ESXi hosts.
