VMware View : Transfer Status LOCKED.

Installing the new View 4.6 Transfer server (for Local Mode Offline Desktops) and I noticed that the Transfer Server was UNMOVABLE.  Right click the VM and you will notice that the Migrate feature is disabled.  No Storage or regular vMotions.


Two new Global Attributes were also added to the vCenter Management Console as well.  Transfer Server Status and VM Lock Status. 


If you need to vMotion the Transfer server, you will need to put it into Maintenance Mode via the View Admin GUI.


Be aware that the Locked Status of View Transfer Servers will prevent ESX hosts from entering into Maintenance mode since DRS will not be able to move the servers off of the host automagically.  It will require you to put the View Transfer Servers into Maintenance Mode to complete these types of events.
