Unable to migrate Win 7 VDIs on ESXi 6.7

James Pethigal1709159219


Details are:


Controllers 7.15 cu3

VMware ESXi, 6.7.0 Cluster

MCS Setup Random Desktop pool all shared storage (tired private too...)


Windows 7 (64-bit)

VDI 7.15 cu3

Compatibility - ESXi 6.0 and later (VM version 11) & ESXi 6.7 and later (VM version 14)… neither works

VMware Tools: 10338


Try to migrate just compute resource & get the following error:

Virtual machine is configured to use a device that prevents the operation: Device 'HD audio ' has a backing type that is not supported. "This is a general limitation of the virtual machine's compatibility with the ESXi version of the selected host."


I see HD Audio in the VMware Hardware, but nothing is listed.


This happens on all hosts, you can turn off the machine & restart it on another host with no issues.


Everything appears to meet the system requirements...  any ideas would be great!


Cheers - James
