There still has to be locks placed on the datastore for managing the meta data, etc.

that's what i knew my question that vMotion is not moving the vm files from one datastore to another it's only moving the vm from one host to another then what kind of involvement is required from the datastore in vmotion?

Hi mcowger

        So what i understood that is for unregistering the vm from one host and registering it on the another host. Am i right?
