Symptoms

If a vCMP guest user disables the watchdog using the db variable Watchdog.State, then the vCMP guest does not reach a running state as reported by the vCMP host.

Impact

vCMP guest fails to be operational.

Conditions

This occurs when the user sets sys db Watchdog.State value disable.

Workaround

Do not change the Watchdog.State db variable. The vCMP host requires the watchdog to monitor the guest health.

Fix Information

None
