Re: vmsvc/power.on fails on Dell Precision T5500 running VMw
Have you taken a look at the vmware.log file in the folder where the vmx file is?
I could not find a vmware.log in that folder nor where I ran the vnsvc/power.on 64 command from.
I reattempted create/poweron sequece removing the ethernet1 settings from the .vmx file, since only one interface exists but same result:
Powering on VM:
Power on failed
No vmware.log and the related entries in /var/log/messages show:
Invalid transition requested (VM_STATE-INVALID_CONFG -> VM_STATE_POWERING_ON)
.vmx Failed operation
Task Completed : haTask-64-vim.VirtualMachine.powerOn-982 Status error
AdapterServer caught exception: ffela780
I also noticed that most of the vim-cmd vmsvc/get.summary 64
I used following min vmx file which was successful for vnsvc/power.on and did create a vmware.log
config.version = "8"
virtualHW.version = "7"
guestOS = "rhel4-64"
Probably best to add config features incrementally ...
