  • Moving existing VM's to a new array

    Hello,

    The array is installed and connected to the ESX servers. Everything is configured.

    Now I have to figure out how to move my existing VM's to the array datastore. Is there something easier than cloning and changing the target datastore?

    Thank you,

    -Travis

    If you Enterprise version you can use svmotion (which will migrate your machines live to another datastore)

    If not then power down the machines and then migrate - no cloning is needed
