is possible use Storage VMotions is local datastore ?

hello everyone 

i have some questions  about storage for vmotion for test benmark

i have 1 server install esxi  with 2 local datastore as picture , is possible use datastore1,datastore3  vmotion  across datastore

or 

Am I correct in thinking that Must have 2 esxi server and  storage shared with them for vmotion   and  how many  shared i have ?

enough 1 shared  like this ?

SVmotion/SVMotionLUNs = shared

XVmotion/XVMotionLUNs = shared

Deploy/DeployLUNs = shared

===================================

could you please explain about  3 paremeter  as below what does it mean ?

 SVmotion/SVMotionLUNs,

XVmotion/XVMotionLUNs

Deploy/DeployLUNs

=====================================

// Infrastructure Ops Settings

SVmotion/SVMotionLUNs = <>
// String XVmotion/XVMotionLUNs : Specifies which LUNs to use for XVMotions. Must be shared storage. : Default empty
XVmotion/XVMotionLUNs = <>
// String Deploy/DeployLUNs : Specifies which LUNs to use for Deploys. Must be shared storage. : Default empty
Deploy/DeployLUNs = <>

Hi pruchya,
 
Two servers with shared storage with at least 2 datastores is required for VMmark to run.
 
  • vMotion migrates a VMmark VM from one host to another host in the VMmark cluster. If you have only one host, this cannot happen and VMmark cannot generate a Score, Score_N_Tile_Test.txt.
  • SvMotion migrates a VMmark VM virtual disk from its datastore to the datastore you specify in SVmotion/SVMotionLUNs.
  • XvMotion does both of the above at the same time using XVmotion/XVMotionLUNs.
  • Deploy deploys a new VM onto the datastore Deploy/DeployLUNs.
 
In VMmark3.properties, if datastore3 was a shared datastore, it would look like:
 
SVmotion/SVMotionLUNs = datastore3
XVmotion/XVMotionLUNs = datastore3
Deploy/DeployLUNs = datastore3
 
Your VMmark Standby and DS3WebA VMs should be not be located on datastore3 in this example so that the Storage vmotion and Xvmotion can occur.
