I'm guessing this is a fresh

I'm guessing this is a fresh install?  You have to use the Cisco OVA template upon install to correct this.  You may not see any issues with the partitions being unaligned as 8.x didn't even check.  If you see any performance issues, this may be your problem.

What exactly are aligned

What exactly are aligned partitions?  When I think of disk partitions I think:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disk_partitioning

However, the confusion I have is that people only ever seem to be talking about disk size and count, not partitions on the disks.  What am I missing Brian?

Hello Khurram Looks like

Hello Khurram
 
Looks like hitting this bug.
 
 
Include partition alignment check in "VMware Installation" CLI & GUI
CSCug69836

Symptom:
Need to be able to readily identify if a system has been installed and deployed in a supported way on VMware with regards to disk alignment.

Modify CLI and GUI VMware information to check and include this.

Existing example string:
VMware Installation: 2 vCPU Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU X5680 @ 3.33GHz, disk 1: 80Gbytes, 4096Mbytes RAM

Proposed string (aligned):
VMware Installation: 2 vCPU Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU X5680 @ 3.33GHz, disk 1: 80Gbytes, 4096Mbytes RAM, Partitions aligned

Proposed string (unaligned):
VMware Installation: 2 vCPU Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU X5680 @ 3.33GHz, disk 1: 80Gbytes, 4096Mbytes RAM, ERROR-UNSUPPORTED: Partitions unaligned

Conditions:
UCM installed on VMware

Workaround:
1. UC on VMWare must be deployed with Cisco provided OVA. This is the only way to ensure aligned partitions. Manually creating VM is insufficient.

VMware Installation: 2 vCPU

VMware Installation: 2 vCPU Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2609 0 @ 2.40GHz, disk 1: 80Gbytes, 4228Mbytes RAM, ERROR-UNSUPPORTED: Partitions unaligned

Mine is this configuration, i have read that perfomanc issue can occue if i ignore this error , and i dont have any service contract to download OVA so what should i do here....?

yes brian this is the fresh install, even i have changed ram size and disk size but still getting the same error.
