Join Rick Crisci for an in-depth discussion in this video Demo: vMotion, part of VMware vSphere 6.5 Essential Training Part 2.
- [Instructor] In this video, I'll demonstrate…how to carry out a vMotion migration of a virtual machine.…So here you can see, we have a virtual machine…that's been created called vMotion Demo,…and I have two ESXi hosts present in my cluster,…and you don't need a cluster for vMotion.…Right, really the only thing you need for vMotion…is shared storage, a properly configured VMkernel port,…you need vCenter, and you need the same networks,…on both the source and destination host.…
So at the moment, I can see that this virtual machine…is currently running on host 192.168.199.100.…So it's running on my first host.…Now, I can just carry out a very simple vMotion migration…by right-clicking this VM and choosing Migrate,…and the very first option…is to change the compute resource only.…That's a vMotion, right,…I'm not moving the virtual disks…from one datastore to another,…and I'm not doing a Storage vMotion, I'm doing a vMotion.…
I'm moving it from one ESXi host to another,…but all of the files that make up this VM…are gonna remain right on the same datastore…
