    Moving vm's from ESXi 4.0 to ESXi 6

    dfindlay Novice

      We have four esx v4.0 hosts and a vcenter server on 2003.  Been running 7 years so it's time to retire.

       

      The vm's are already on a new Equalogic iSCSI array.

       

      I know I can't vmotion between the different hardware platforms, and vcenter server 6.0 won't manage ESXi 4.0 anyway.

       

      If I bring up four new 6.0 hosts and a new vcenter server, I'm thinking I can shut down a vm, remove it from the 4.0 inventory, and add it to the 6.0 cluster.  Then boot it up.

       

      Would this work?
