vSphere Lab-in-a-Box 14: vMotion Tests
In this post, we will use vMotion to move the DC02 server between the two virtual ESXi servers and between the iSCSI and NFS datastores.
Move Server to New Host
Open the vSphere Client and locate the “dc02” server. Right-click on the server and choose Migrate…
Leave the Migration Type on Change host. Click Next.
Select the second virtual ESXi server and click Next.
Leave the priority on High and click Next.
Click Finish and wait for the process to complete. The server will now be located on the second virtual ESXi server.
Move Server to New Datastore
Right-click on the “dc02” server and choose Migrate… again.
Select Change datastore and click Next.
Choose the shared_nfs datastore and click Next.
Click Finish and wait for the process to complete. This will take a little longer than simply migrating the host.
When it has completed, you can view the Summary of the server and see that it is located on the shared_nfs datastore.
