Using vSphere 5.1 Update 1
I have just renamed a newly deployed VM from vSphere Console let say from oldVMName to the newVMName.
my understanding is that after performing Storage vMotion, All of the VM components will be renamed into the newVMname, but somehow it is just renaming the VMFS directory only?
before svMotion: [VMFS_vol_15] oldVMName/oldVMName.vmdk
after svMotion: [VMFS_vol_15] newVMName/oldVMName.vmdk
How to rename the VMDK so that it match the server display name without causing downtime?
this is what I'd like to achieve:
So in this case after I execute the steps that is mentioned in the KB article 2008877, I can perform another sVmotion to rename the VMDK disk ?
