    How to migrate Guest Introspection VM from one cluster to another.

    godaba Enthusiast

      Hi All,

       

      Please suggest me on migration for Guest Introspection VM, we are moving a host from one cluster to another cluster along with "Guest Introspection" VM.

       

      Guest Introspection VM is located in shared datastore. Do we need to do the migration from NSX manager or a regular VM migration will work for us. Please provide me your inputs and steps.

       

      Regards,

      Suresh.

          Hello,

          I try to summarize. You need to migrate a Host from a Cluster (where the GI is enabled) on a new cluster where the VM GI is not enabled. Correct?

           

          If so, the simplest way (for me is)  is to remove the Host from the current cluster (delete the Service VM GI), then add the host into the new one and enable the GI (from NSX GUI) on the new cluster so that the GI is deployed on this new Cluster (if wasn't ).

          You cannot migrate a Service VM (SVM) using vMotion/SvMotion. SVMs must remain on the host on which they were deployed for correct operation.

          That's it

          I hope I was helpful.
