I am after some guidance on migrating configuration details from one vCloud Director to another. I am about to install new hardware with vCenter 6.5 and vCloud Director 9. The existing hardware is on vCenter 5.5 and vCloud Director 8.0. Are there any scripts or utilities available to migrate everything from existing to new hardware? I am planning to migrate individual tenants at a time. The VMs will keep the same IP address.
Why don't you:
- Update VCD to 9.x
- Update vCenter to 6.5
- Create a new cluster with 6.5 ESXI hosts on new hardware
- Add the new cluster as 2nd Provider VDC in vCloud
- Migrate the tenants
- Decommision old hardware Provider VDC
