If the vcmpd program restarts while a vCMP guest is running, subsequent requests to change the management network mode of the guest will fail silently.


The management network mode of the guest cannot be changed to a different value than what it was when the vcmpd program restarted.


This issue occurs if vcmpd restarts while a vCMP guest is running.


If the affected vCMP guest is taken to the provisioned or configured state, then back to the deployed state, the management network mode will be modifiable again.
