    Proceedure to replace Vcenter server

    pdrace Expert

      One of my Virtual Center servers is having issues. I blue screened and was restarted with a bug check this early this past Monday morning and then locked up again and had to be powered off and back on. I'm considering replacing it with a new server as I suspect there is some type of corruption in the OS.

      Can anyone point me to documentation for moving an existing installation to a new server? Single Sign On mode is multisite and the SQL database is local. The Vcenter build is 5.1 - 1473063 (update 2).

       

      One other question. I would like to deploy a new server with the same name as a replacement on a different datastore.

      Will renaming the current Vcenter server in Virtual Center cause any issues?
