I signed into VCSA this morning and noticed a few VM’s powered off with (inaccessible) added to their VM name.
When I check the summary of the VM, it shows the following message:
This virtual machine uses hardware version 1, which is no longer supported. Upgrade is recommended.
My hosts are VMware esxi:
* VMware ESXi, 6.0.0, 2494585
and my VCSA is:
* vSphere Client version 22.214.171.12400
When I look at the inaccessible VMs and view the Update Manager –> Upgrade VM Hardware to match host, I don’t see anything listed in the update manager.
I’m not sure if this has anything to do with it, but looking at the summary page for the vcenter VM I see:
* Guest OS:Linux 4.4.152-1.ph1 VMware Photon 1.0 Photon VMware Photon 1.0
* Compatibility:ESXi 5.5 and later (VM version 10)
I’m a bit confused on what I should do. I’m glad that none of my critical VMs experienced this issue. From reading online, it seems I may have to re-create the affected VMs and reattach the disks?
Has anybody experienced this error before?
**Edit:** After investigating this afternoon, it seems one of my storage switches failed, hence the issues with not being able to reach a datastore and power on two VMs.
