I have 2 ESX running ESXi 5.0 U3 in a cluster.
The VMs are using the DVs switch.
Now I need to upgrade firmware and patches ESX and due to lack of ressources only one ESXi will not have enough ressources to hold all vms.
I have another ESXi and want to add it the the cluster but I can't enable DVS on it(lack of network port).
My questions are as follows:
1. Is this possible to have a cluster with 2 ESXi with DVS and 1ESX with STD switch?
2. Can I live migrate the VMs from an ESXi which is using DVS to the ESX that has only STD switch?
Thanking you in advance
Ok thank you Jinuv....
If I got it well....
If in my cluster the DVswitch has for example vlan100, vlan200, vlan300, vlan400, after adding the new esx to the cluster, I have to manually create these VLANS on the new STD switch of the new ESXi? And I will be able tho live migrate VM from ESXi with DVS to ESX with STD without any downtime?
