DRS does not move any virtual machines from a host.


Virtual machines are not moved from this host.


This may be because of problems with vMotion, DRS, or host compatibility. The following are the possible reasons:

  • vMotion is not configured or activated on this host.
  • DRS is deactivated for the virtual machines on this host.
  • Virtual machines on this host are not compatible with any other hosts.
  • No other hosts have sufficient resources for any virtual machines on this host.
  • Moving any virtual machines from this host would violate a VM/VM DRS rule or VM/Host DRS rule.
  • DRS is deactivated for one or more virtual machines on the host.
  • A device is mounted to the virtual machine.
