    VMware Essentials Plus Enhanced vMotion

    manx75 Lurker

      I read an article that it is possible to vMotion Storage but only if you change the host at the same time, however I wanted to check can you used enhanced vMotion to move VM's from local storage to shared storage?

       

      For example I have two VM's which are running on a host, most of the drives sit on local storage with 2 drives pointing to shared storage. I basically want to migrate them onto one of our shared storage SANs.

       

      Hope someone can clear up my query, if this doesnt work what options do I have to migrate these VM's to shared storage?

       

      Thanks.

          I don't have access to an Essentials Plus environment at the moment, but why don't you just give it a try? You've got nothing to lose. It will either work, or throw an error message.

          If it doesn't work, there are other options available, but they will require downtime, and manual work.
