Resolve

Check KVP Exchange virtual device

The configuration file of the virtual machine is missing the Key Value Pair (KVP) Exchange virtual device. The KVP includes a set of data items that contains a unique identifier, called a key, and a value that is the actual data for the key. 

Edit the configuration file or create a new virtual machine configuration to replicate the current one and delete the current configuration. Note: existing key value pairs stored in the offline repository will be lost.
