    Storage vMotion on ESXi 5.0 without vSphere Server

    telecastle Novice

      I have installed an evaluation copy of ESXi 5.0 and want to migrate VMs that are currently on the local datastore to iSCSI datastores. I cannot see the "Migrate" line item when I right-click on a VM running from the local datastore. The evaluation license enables vMotion for 60 days, and I configured a 1Gbps port on the ESXi host for vMotion. Is vMotion available only when ESXi hosts are managed by the vSphere server? I do not have a vSpherer server inmy environment and manage the ESXi server directly from the vSphere Client.

       

      Thanks.
