Starting or Shutting Down VMs Fails When You Execute a Recovery Plan for VMware VMs

1.If you want to recover a VM to an ESXi host, log in to vCenter through a vCenter client. Set the location for storing VM swap files on the ESXi host. You are advised to set the location on a dedicated datastore without affecting other VMs. The dedicated datastore must have adequate space.
For details, see the VMware documentation.

2.If you want to recover a VM to an ESXi host cluster, ensure that VM swap files and the VM reside under the same directory to prevent the adverse impact on VM vMotion performance. Adjust the space of the datastore where the VM resides to ensure that the VM can correctly create swap files.
