    Effects for Moving VM between vCenters & vRops historical stats

    VM_ Novice

      Hi there,

       

      I have a question regarding the retention of vRops historical stats for a VM(s) being moved between vCenters.

       

      We are planning an upgrade of our vCenter 5.5 Update 2 to vCenter 6.0 Update 1.

      We would like to move to the VCSA (the fling is not applicable to our setup) rather than our current Windows install.

      Internally I have been advised to start with a fresh install to keep it simple. I was listing out the risks of this approach.

       

      One of the risks I have listed is that when migrating to a new VC we will lose the historical stats for the VM even if vRops is connected to both VCs.

      Is this assumption true - when you move a vm from vcenter 1 to vcenter 2 how does vRops deal with monitoring a vm?

      I imagine this is a problem that others have had to deal with when using SRM or the new inter vCenter vmotion feature.

       

      Thanks,
