Fault - WillModifyConfigCpuRequirements


Fault Description

A virtual machine's total CPU feature requirements are determined by overlaying the requirements specified in its configuration (if any) on top of the requirements specified in the descriptor for its guest OS. It is therefore possible for a host change to implicitly change a virtual machine's CPU feature requirements. The guest OS descriptor may have different requirements on the new host. Or, if the virtual machine currently specifies requirements in its configuration, those requirements will be lost if the new host does not support this.

This fault indicates that the virtual machine's CPU feature requirements would change because of a migration, and also that the destination host does support storing CPU feature requirements in the virtual machine's configuration. (If the destination host does not support such an action, CannotModifyConfigCpuRequirements is used instead of this fault.)

This is a warning to notify the user that the migration process will adjust the virtual machine's configuration so that it will be operating under an unchanged set of CPU feature requirements on its new host. If the user wishes to expose the different guest OS requirements of the new host, the user will need to edit the virtual machine's configuration after the migration.
