Virtual Machine Fails to Poweron with the Error "Failed to attach filter 'VFILE' to scsi0:0: Not found (195887107)"

  • PrintPrint


Upon migrating vShield protected virtual machine, it failed to power on with the following error:
Module DevicePowerOn power on failed. Unable to create virtual SCSI device for scsi0:0, '/vmfs/volumes/VOLUME/VM/VM.vmdk' Failed to attach filter 'VFILE' to scsi0:0: Not found (195887107).


The issue is resolved by deleting these lines in the VM.vmx file:
VFILE.globaloptions = "svmip=A.B.C.D svmport=abcd"scsi0:0.filters = "VFILE"
