Once I built my ESXi 5.5 hosts in my test lab and added them to my vCenter environment, they both had a yellow warning prompt stating: “No coredump target has been configured. Host core dumps cannot be saved”

I wanted to upgrade the memory on my vSphere 5.1 vCenter server to 16GB and I didn’t have hot-add enabled. I powered off the VM, connected directly to the host and re-configured the VM as required and then clicked OK.

At this point, I got an error saying “Access to resource settings on the host is restricted to the server that is managing it: X.X.X.X”.

The host things it is still being managed by vCenter so it won’t let me edit the VM. vCenter server is powered off so that I can edit the VM (as hot-add is not enabled the VM has to be powered off to change the memory amount).

This is how to fix this issue…..
