    (solved) Copy VM by ovftool from ESXI 5 to ESXI 5 is slow

    ripeed Novice

      Hi, I try to copy VM1 from ESXI 5 to ESXI 5 with ovftool by run ovftool -ds=datastore1 vi://root@10.0.0.1/vm1 vi://root@10.0.0.2 on WIN7 cmd. (WIN7 is vm on destination server where I whant to transfer vm1)

       

      VM have 43GB used. I have two servers with those ESXI5 connected to mikrotik on 1Gbps network.

       

      The issue is that transfer is very slow. I can get proximetly 30Mbps.

       

      How can I make it faster? I run that four hours and still was not completed.

       

      Thanks for advice!
