Knowledge Base / KB1: RDM HARD DRIVE

If a virtual machine has even only one hard disk configured as a Raw Device Mapping with Physical Mode, it cannot be hot migrated. In vCenter appears a message like: Hard disk [device name] is RDM with Physical Mode on VM [VM name]

You can either change the hard disk configuration, through the procedure suggested by VMware, or disable shutdown on the physical host where the VM resides, on the eco4cloud dashboard.
