7.67 Cannot Enable High Availability (HA) for Virtual Machines with HugePages

If you attempt to enable HA for a running virtual machine that has HugePages enabled, the job to enable HA fails with the following error message:

OVMRU_005002E Operation not allowed- Virtual Machine: vm_name, is not STOPPED. It is RUNNING.

This error occurs if you attempt to enable HA in either the Oracle VM Manager Web Interface or the Oracle VM Manager Command Line Interface.

The preceding error message does not accurately describe the issue. The fact that the virtual machine is in the running state does not affect the ability to enable HA. The error results from the fact that HugePages is enabled for the virtual machine.

Workaround: Disable the HugePages setting and then restart the virtual machine. After the virtual machine starts, enable HA.
