Today we are running a VMware Troubleshooting workshop and one of the delegates came across the following error when trying to open a VM console through the vSphere Client and also the Web Client. This was the case with all VMs.
UNABLE TO CONNECT TO THE MKS: THE OPERATION IS NOT ALLOWED IN THE CURRENT STATE
Here are our solutions to the issue
- We noted down the Datastore for the VM and then removed the VM from the Inventory in the vSphere Client. We then browsed to the datastore and added the VM back to the inventory by Right-Clicking on the .VMX file. However with quite a few VMs, this may take a while.
- We rebooted the ESXi host, all VMs then came back working (yes a bit extreme, but it did the job, thank you vMotion, if live environment possibly done with no downtime).
