Sounds like it may have an unsupported virtualization scheme on it; what VM virtualization options changed a while back. Unless this is a VM that worked before,

which is probably a separate issue, perhaps a corruption of the VM itself?

Hello Tobias, No change as far as i can confirm. It's pool with 2 hosts and VM in question was running on local storage (Of course all other VMs as well).


When i migrate VM to other host (Let's say Host02) , i can able to power on VM without any issue.

On the host (Host01) where it was giving me error, if i remove GPU setting i can able to power on VM without any issue.


Can you help me where i can check and confirm virtualization scheme currently being configured ?

NTP Synched

Hotfix on same level (CH82ECU1 (version 1.0) )NVIDIA-vGPU-CitrixHypervisor-470.82 (version 470.82)

No limitations on CPU & Memory

Both the servers are identical in HW

Yes, 2 hosts pool not officially supported but it's going to expand as and when users workload increases.
