We recently moved a virtual machine appliance from one host to another while we were implementing an iSCSI SAN infrastructure, and upon trying to power up the appliance was presented with the following error:

Cannot initialize property ‘vami.DNS0.appliance_name’. Network ‘VM Network’ has no associated network protocol profile.

vami DNS0 no associated network protocol profile errorI’ve not confirmed this (and it will difficult to now), but when we first installed the appliance we were running ESXi 4.1, we have since migrated to ESXi 5.1 and this is the first time we have moved the appliance.

Looking around on the web, there are some articles below about similar issues. In our case we hadn’t assigned an IP Pool. After adding the correct IP Pool settings the virtual appliance was able to boot up correctly.
