i have a MS cluster of 2 virtual machines and i need to migrate the physical RDM LUNs pointer files and VMDKs to some other datastore. [each VM is having 45 RDMs and 5 disks ( VMDKs)]
it is possible if i shutdown the VMs to move pRDM (pointer file ) but need some details.
Is it possible by storage vmotion and automatically my VMDKS and pRDM pointer files will be migrated to the newly pointed datastore.with out removing the pRDMs ? will it not convert my RDMs to VMDKs?
is there any screenshots/video i can see , i dont have any testing envirnemnt to look?
This should help: VMware Knowledge Base
still not clear.
If i shutdown the MS cluster and perform the storage migration and choose other datacenter, will it be not converting my RDM luns to .VMDK and only migrating my RDM pointer files?
In the Storage vMotion section:
