VM Is Relocated and Fails to Automatically Start After the Host Restarts

VM Is Relocated and Fails to Automatically Start After the Host Restarts


A user logs in to the ESXi remotely and presses F12+F11 to restart the host. After the host starts up, the virtual machine (VM) running on the host is relocated and fails to automatically start, as shown in Figure 3-11.

Figure 3-11 VM relocation

VM relocation refers to the VM migration to another host triggered by the vCenter.

Possible Causes

After the user presses F12+F11 on the ESXi window, the system performs the following operations:

  1. Stops all the VMs running on the host.
  2. Stops the host.
  3. Starts the host.
  4. Starts all the VMs running on the host.

During this process, the high availability (HA) mechanism does not work for the VMs running on the host. As a result, after a VM is migrated to another host, the VM does not automatically start.

After the host stops, the vCenter triggers VM relocation in shared storage scenarios.

To prevent service failures when the HA mechanism does not work for VMs, do not restart the host running these VMs after you log in to the ESXi.

It is recommended that you restart the host from the hardware layer so that the HA mechanism always work for the VMs running on the host. For example, click Cold boot or Reset on the iLO interface of the HP server.

Fault Diagnosis



  1. Contact infrastructure maintenance engineers to manually start the VM.
