Join Rick Crisci for an in-depth discussion in this video Demo: Storage vMotion, part of VMware vSphere 6.5 Essential Training Part 2.
- [Instructor] In this video,…I'll demonstrate how to perform a Storage vMotion.…So let's take a look at our Hosts and Clusters view.…And here you can see we've got a couple of ESXi hosts…and we've got a virtual machine called vMotion Demo.…And vMotion Demo virtual machine exists…on my Shared datastore currently.…And I can validate that by expanding the VM Hardware, here.…And when we look at Hard disk 1,…we can see that it's stored on our Shared datastore.…
So that's where my VM is currently located.…And let's say in this scenario,…I'd like to relocate this virtual machine's files.…So here we see the Shared datastore.…And if we look at Files,…we can see all of the files…associated with this virtual machine in the folder…that has the same name as the VM.…So we've got things like the vmdk file, vmx file.…All these critical files…that my virtual machine needs in order to function.…
And so what I want to do is take those files…and while the virtual machine is running,…migrate them to one of these other datastores.…
