Rename HBA for vmotion

Jump to solution

I want to setup vmotion on 2 ESX 3.01 boxes and have read that the LUN IDs have to match on the boxes. Does that include the HBA name? I have identical Dell 2950s with Qlogic 2342s but on one box it's vmhba1 and the other it's vmhba4. Does anybody know if that will that affect my ability to vmotion? Thanks in advance for any and all info. Shawn

The name of HBA should has nothing to do with Vmotion. As long as both ESX servers can see the LUN where the VMDK is, VMtion should work
