Today I want to install Windows 8 in my test lab, after creating a new virtual machine and power-on the VM I received warning error message:
Failed to find a host for powering on the virtual machine. The following faults explain why the registered host is not compatible
The operation is not allowed in the current connection state of the host.
Weird, both ESXi 5.0 hosts are powered on, my vCenter VM is running on the same machine which I want to power on the new virtual machine.. also strange is.. there’s no CPU (0 MHz) and no Memory usage (0,00 MB) activity at this host, check the screenshot below
Jup.. there are two running servers at esx01.vmpros.lan
After disconnecting the ESXi host from vCenter and reconnect the host I was able to power on virtual machines, also my CPU/Memory activity is back
