Is it possible to move (migrate) vCenter VM to another ESXi server (the same cluster) when I work,with vCenter Essentials version ?
I can move VM to another server but only when VM is stoped, but when vCenter VM is stopped I can't use vCenter.
Unfortunately not. In order to live migrate VMs, you need at least Essentials Plus.
If the vCenter Server VM is stored on shared storage, you need to shutdown vCenter Server, unregister it from one host, and register it on another one.
Hi André & thanks for this answer, but
Unfortunately it is not on shared storage.
Do you think I can stop it, recover with vCenter Converter, import to another ESXi and startfrom it?
What's the purpose for moving vCenter to another host? Is it a temporary move, or is it for good?
Rather than using the Converter, you may either export/import the vCenter VM as a OVF, or run a file based backup from the VAMI (Port 5480), and deploy a new vCenter Server Appliance using the Restore option.
Expect a moderator to move your thread to the area for vSphere.
If the VC VM on a shared Datastore ; then just remove from inventory and add to the inventory on other ESXi server.
If no shared datastore; then power off VM; export VM as OVF from ESXi directly and import it to the other host.
