HCX Migration - Source site still usable afterwards ?

Hi everyone,

Without wishing a double post : I have a site under ESXi 6.5 and I would like to create a new site for disaster recovery purposes and take this opportunity to run VMware Cloud Foundation.


I know that the migration is mandatory but can I continue to using the first site under ESXi 6.5 considered legacy afterwards ?

I don't want to loose it.


The plan is to build a private cloud with two sites :

- the legacy site under ESXi 6.5
- the new site under VMware Cloud Foundation

I thank you in advance

You can continue to use 6.5 at the source site but you will not get any support from VMware if something goes wrong with the environment as the vSphere 6.5 is no longer supported and has reached it's End of Support (EOS)
