what to check:

  1. Check DNS, forward and reverse resolution
  2. Check NTP server, try to sync time
  3. Plug-in not compatible is better to unregister/uninstall:  how to.
    I uninstalled: Update Manager, Operations Manager, UCS Plugin, VR Plugin
  4. In our environment Replication Appliance was incompatible with new version of vCenter. I stopped all replication jobs, unregistered Appliance (how to). Stopped VR Appliance.
  5. Check the database size…

 

Resolution:

In my situation, 8GB database (MSSQL) on Win2012R2 with 12GB RAM (small vCenter, 1000VM), was migrated to the same, small vCenter on Linux (1000 VM), with 16 GB RAM.

… it was to small.
I modified: vCenter Server to 32GB RAM,
on migration step I choose Large vCenter (32GB RAM) to create large vCenter Appliance

Success :)

ps. after this, I downsized RAM to 16GB :)

 

VMware Appliance size

 

RESULT:

VMware Migration result
