Cross vCenter Workload Migration Utility

This post was originally published on this site

Wondering if anyone can offer advise on this error below using the VMware “Cross vCenter Workload Migration Utility”?

            This is in our lab, so we can access any time and make changes on the fly.  We have 2 Vcenter servers that are “set up the same”.

            In the lab, we are not using Virtual Distributed Switches (vDS), we are only using Virtual Standard Switches (vSS)

            If I power off the VM and perform a migration, it all works.  However, If I keep the VM powered on and try the VM migration, I am produced the following error.

“Currently connected network interface ‘Network adapter 1’ cannot use network ‘VM Network’, because the destination network on the destination host is configured for different offload or security policies than the source network on the source host.”


I’ve made sure that the Virtual Standard Switch are set up the same


Here are the setting for the Virtual Switch Properties


Ive made sure Enhanced vMotion Compatibility (EVC) is enabled on both Clusters
