6.59 Failed Server Evacuation Defined in DPM Policy Generates User Acknowledgeable Event

Certain conflicting and concurrent events can cause server evacuation, the process whereby running virtual machines are migrated to an alternate Oracle VM Server before shutdown due to a DPM policy, to fail. For instance, attempting to manually migrate a virtual machine on an Oracle VM Server at the same time that the DPM policy is attempting to shutdown the Oracle VM Server can cause the DPM policy to fail with a server evacuation error message. This leaves the Oracle VM Server in a warning state, which must be cleared before the server can return to normal operation.

Workaround: If a server is in warning state after a failed DPM operation, acknowledge the related event. The server assumes its normal operational role again and the warning is cleared.
