Even though it is a warning message we can migrate the VM as long as below conditions are checked.
Note: Migrating through Storage vMotion is possible but there are several caveats.
- Ensure the new datastores have the correct Storage Policy and are assigned to the correct hosts. There is no vCloud Director placement engine verification using this method and it can cause severe issues if you do this incorrectly.
- This is not recommended for Fast Provisioned virtual machines as they are inflated to full clones.
- This is not possible for VAAI Fast Provisioned virtual machines as vSphere is unable to Storage vMotion them.
- Load balancing virtual machines on the datastores are completely manual.
