Hi All,

vCenter Server 6.5.0 Update 1

Turbonomics 6.1.12


In my lab setup, i tried to create a placement policy to place a virtual machine on a specific datastore with following configuration. Service account permissions inside vCenter Server 6.5.0 Update 1 are applied based on recommendations in TargetConfiguration_6.2.1.pdf.


Then Apply Selected option would appear as greyed-out despite settings shown above.

Later on, i realized that virtual machine has a mounted ISO file residing on a different datastore.Only  when I unchecked CD/DVD, then after few minutes, I could see Placement Action as shown below; 

then i could Storage vMotion the VM as shown below;

It seems that Storage vMotion cannot execute from Turbonomics until mounted CD/DVD is removed from a virtual machine.
