#145 Unable to change settings while powered on

  • Anonymous • Jan 06, 2017

    I am unable to change any VM settings such as Network Connected (Y/N), which Virtual Switch a NIC is connected to, USB devices associated with a VM, or unmapping an ISO image to a CD while a VM is powered on.

    Any attempt to adjust settings yields the error "The attempted operation cannot be performed in the current state (Powered on)"

    Hi Mike,

    Can you let me know what version of the Host Client and ESXi you are using?

    Sorry - this is on ESXi 6.5 build 4564106 and host client version 1.13.0 build 4762574. I had the same issue with the host client version that came with ESXi 6.5, I think it was 1.8.
