VMware vCenter 4 Error “PropertyCollector.RetrieveContents”28. July 201228. July 2012Gert Kjerslev
This is acluy an old problem but I ran into it again wehen upgrading a vSphere 4.1 and vCenter 4 to vSphere 5. I got this error when trying to migrate a VM. I remembered that this error chould have something to do with and ISO mounted or CD-ROM drive was connectet, so I tryed to unmount it but could not get access to the edit menu. I tryed to remove the VM from the inventory and add it back in and it worked. I could mirate the VM off the host. Call “PropertyCollector.RetrieveContents” for object “propertyCollector” on vCenter Server “” failed.
