Veeam VMware: vSphere HA VM Component Protection Could Not Power Off a Virtual Machine Alarm

This monitor tracks the vCenter Alarm 'vSphere HA VM Component Protection could not power off a virtual machine'.

By default, the alarm is triggered by the following event:

  • com.vmware.vc.HA.VmcpTerminateVmAborted: vSphere High Availability VM Component Protection could not power off a virtual machine with an inaccessible datastore.

Try powering off the VM manually. Check whether the datastore selected for the VM is healthy and responsive. For more information on troubleshooting VMware High Availability in vSphere, see this VMware KB article.
