We have an existing VC server and database that we would like to move onto new hardware. I've seen a few articles roughly related to this but was hoping someone could point me at a step-by-step proceedure. I'm not worried about losing any historical info (stats etc), so can I just setup the new server, install SQL and VC, shutdown the existing VC server and import my ESX hosts?
No impact on vms; they will continue to run. As stated though you will lose permissions, folders as well as perf data, and changes made to roles, alerting, etc
Thanks for that. I've not really done much with folders, roles and alerts as yet, so not worried about losing anything, but what is the alternative, copying the existing db over to the new vc server, or is it more complicated than that?
