Re: Not able to modify the VM CPU.

Looks like the guest configuration is associated with a virtual switch that does not exist.  If that's the case you can use the hpvmmodify command to remove the reference to the non-existent virtual switch "vmsw4".  Then retry your command to modify the guest CPU configuration.
