I have a question regarding vCenter and vMotion.
I have 2 esxi [esxi1,esxi2] hosts on production site 6.7.0 and one VCSA 220.127.116.1100 that is residing on esxi2. Both hosts are in cluster mode and vSphere HA is enabled. I need to do some work to the iSCSI adapter through VCSA thus i need to put the esxi's to maintenance mode.
If i will do this
Put esxi1 to maintenance mode (all vm's are already powered off)
Do the changes to iSCSI adapter
Exit esxi1 from maintenance mode
Move VCSA from esxi2 using vmotion (migrate only compute resource since they use shared storage). This step is feasible or not?
Put esxi2 to maintenance mode
Do the changes to iSCSI adapter of esxi2
Exit esxi2 from maintenance mode
And at the end i will move again vcsa to esxi2 (compute host only)
Thank you both for your answers!
We have VMware Essentials Plus, vMotion is included. The only thing that i have in mind is this...
If VCSA is what controls vMotion how this will not be affected during live migration? And does anyone knows what it will happen to the vm if something goes wrong?
