Migrated vcsa server to new host – all datastores inaccessible and all hosts disconnected

This post was originally published on this site


After migrating a vcsa server to a new host by cloning and moving to a new host ( with a new IP) all the entities see within vcsa are either “disconnected” ( hosts and vms) or “inaccessible” ( datastores). All right click options on any entity is also greyed out



I followed another link suggesting clone, power off old, power on new was the procedure but I’m wondering if the new IP may have affected the licensing state

Is there a way to get vcsa back to normal from this point


I have clicked through licenses and I believe the ones we need are assigned and not expired. We have 2 others which are expired but I think not used and were expired before the move
