Fault Description

An attempt to enable Enhanced VMotion Compatibility on a cluster, or to select a less-featureful EVC mode for a cluster where EVC is already enabled, has failed for the following reason: Therefore the EVC configuration has been rejected since it may suppress CPU features that are currently in-use.


Name Type Description

The requested EVC mode.

Since vSphere API 4.0
to a HostSystem[]

Hosts with active virtual machines that are blocking the operation, because the hosts expose compatibility-relevant CPU features not present in the baseline of the requested EVC mode.

Note that in rare cases, a host may be on this list even if its maxEVCModeKey corresponds to the requested EVC mode. This means that even though that EVC mode is the best match for the host's hardware, the host still has some features beyond those present in the baseline for that EVC mode.
