Is it possible to migrate the VM from vcloud director admin portal.
The system administrator can do redeploy all vm's. In the background and all vms on that host will vmotion to a different esx by taking the esx in to a maintenance mode.
i knew redeploy feature of esxi host in vcloud but i want to migrate only specific VM is it possible?
As far as I know there is no way doing that.
This layer is not exposed in the vcd ui.
but why this is not there what could be the issue that can happen with this?
Personally I don't think it will be a good idea exposing that to the organizations end users.
vCD is a thin layer to manage virtual datacenter of organizations. Netowrk, storage , deploy vm and new networks and manage them.
The infrastructure is managed by the administrators and vc/drs and etc.
As I know, there are no plans to replace vc by vcd. vCD is only thin layer on top vc.
I am not working at VMware so I can't really tell you more but you can send them a feature request Feature Request | United States
i know you are not working with vmware but i just want to know the logic that is needed to understand and it's like earlier storage drs was not supported in vcloud 5.1 but in vcloud 5.5 this is supported.
svmotion is binded to a storage profile (storage policy) and it is a pre defied "oject" that system administrator is allocating to an org.
I guess you really will like to have diffrent pvdc and vmotion or svmotion will worki without downtime.
As I can see vcd made a lot of progress over the years and spacilly in the 1 year - year 1.5.
I think we will further see development as hybrid cloud era is getting more used. I have also a few ideas how to get the mobility between different datacneters.
As you know VCD has got its own placement algorithm.Can you let me know the use case for Migrating only one specific VM from VCD? DRS being a back-born for VCD, VM's will be migrated as long as VMotion is working fine.On a lighter note,you can always migrate Vcloud VM's from VC,just ensure that you are placing them in right resource pool.
