Hi there

is it possible to move a vm via storage vmotion from VMFS6 back to a VMFS5 Datastore?

I cant find any hints in the whitepapers about this?

Hi,

Yes it is possible, you can see the compatibility checks as green and i just did a migration from vmfs6 to vmfs5 to test, its successful but it takes time than usual to complete because of the changes of block type.
