Are you performing this task via webclient ? Did you notice any error while migrating or stuck during the migrating process ? Is it happening for all vms ? can you take a test VM and perform to and fro migration to check if it happens always ? then we have to check the logs to find why does it take more time.
I have done a test vm, it happens all the time...
which logs would be best to look for? I'm kinda new to the vcsa thang
appreciate the help
You have to check the hostd and vmkernel logs to find how long does the host takes to register the vm in vds. Track the task using op-id with filters.
well I was just about to look at the logs and figured I would do a fresh migration to find it in the logs... and it didn't drop a single packet.. Guess it must be our network and ARP or something like that - that unfortunately I have no insight into... but when I migrate it is switching from one physical NIC to another so my guess is ARP was still discovering stuff or something. Anyway, all seems good now, thanks.
So Bill, did you perfect this approach. I'm in the process of planning to migrate my VMs from VMAX to VxRackFLEX. I see you used a node as a landing zone.
