Hi Chen,

I tested now the procedure and followed all the steps.
The VM are now created with NVMe Controller but there is an issue as they do not boot.
If I login to the console I can see an error that says "Boot Failed".
I think it may be related with the NVMe Controller on the GuestOS Disk.
I am going to replace it by the orginal controller and see if that helps.

Thanks

for the template, just want to ensure you only did vm compatibility upgrade and replaced the original one in vm-template folder, right?

That's right.
Upgraded VM hardware compatibility to 7.0 (vsphere 7), exported to ovf and replaced original disk-0.vmdk and the .ovf file. Kept the original names and permissions. Ruby files also updated.

Boot Failed usually means the boot disk got some issue.

but we should not touch the boot device since it should be still under pre-built pvscsi controller. could you help to verify that on the guest vm?

Hi Chen, I checked the controller on the GUEST OS disk and it has not changed. It is the original pvscsi.
