Join Rick Crisci for an in-depth discussion in this video Demo: Configuring for vMotion, part of VMware vSphere 6.5 Essential Training Part 2.
- [Instructor] In this video, I'll demonstrate…how to use vMotion to migrate a virtual machine…from one ESXi host to another.…Here you can see, in my vSphere Web Client,…I'm in the hosts and clusters view,…and I have two ESXi hosts.…At the moment, I have not set up any…of my requirements for vMotion yet,…so let's talk about a couple of those things.…Let's look at host 192.168.199.100,…and let's look at the datastores.…
You can see here, we have one datastore…available on this host, it's called datastore1,…and it's a VMFS 5 datastore.…On this other host, we have datastore1,…and then the number one in parenthesis,…and it is a 32 point five gigabyte datastore.…So, we've got two ESXi hosts,…but they don't have a datastore in common.…That's one of the major prerequisites for vMotion is,…I have to have a datastore in common…between these two ESXi hosts in order to vMotion…a virtual machine from one host to another.…
So, that's going to be step one in my process, here.…I'm actually going to go ahead, establish a shared datastore…
