Migrate virtual machines from HP G7(single host) for HP G8 (Cluster) without shared storage

Hello

I have 2 esxi host (hp dl 380 G8) and put them in a cluster and other host esxi (dl 380 g7) and I have no shared storage and use local disks just now I must spend my VM G7 server a cluster of the G8 but I want to know I can join my cluster g8 g7 and migrate web vmware machines without any downtime?

I want to know can migrate without downtime with localdisk? I have no shared storage

Best regards

can I join g7 to my cluster of the g8

You can mix into clusters hosts all desired, even Intel and AMD at least that you enable EVC on the cluster (of course, HA or DRS require shared storage compatible/CPU). However, you need not to have even just cluster hosts to migrate virtual machines through vMotion between them.

migrate web vmware machines without any downtime?

Don't know what this "web vmware' but yes, because ESXi 5.1, you can use"enhanced vMotion"to live migrate virtual machines without service interruption from one host to another, even without shared storage:

Migration with vMotion in environments without shared storage

The usual vMotion requirements apply. Also you can only live migrate virtual machines from the old host to the new hosts because of different generations of CPU (and back as long as you don't have bike powered virtual machines on new hosts).

  • PowerCLI Script to migrate virtual machines with the same network Source for the new vCenter Server.

    Hi all

    I checked a few posts on the migration to the new vCenter Server virtual machine. But I'm not very good with Powercli and need some help here.

    We have a new vCenter server where we migrate virtual machines from one source vCenter server. Here are two things that I don't know how to connect together to make sure that bwfore we turn on the virtual machine to the virtual machine is connected to its source network.

    Part 1 - this script works well but do not get any network on the vCenter destination.

    cluster = Get-Cluster "clusterA.

    $inventory = get-Cluster $cluster | Get - VM | Add-Member - MemberType ScriptProperty-name "VMXPath" - value {$this.extensiondata.config.files.vmpathname}-Passthru-Force | Select-Object Name ResourcePool, folder, VMXPath |

    New-VM - VMFilePath $vm. VMXPath - VMHost $ESXHost - location $vm. Folder - ResourcePool (Get-Cluster $cluster |) Get-ResourcePool $vm. ResourcePool)

    }

    Part 2 - I want to preserve the Portgroup macaddress and the Ip of the virtual computers and connect them to the new vCenter. How can I do this with the script below. Or how can I combine them together?

    $vm_list = get-Cluster-name "clustera | Get - VM test * | Name sort

    $information = {foreach ($vm to $vm_list)

    $network_adapter_information = get-NetworkAdapter - VM $vm

    Step 2

  • Unable to migrate virtual machines from one ESX to another in a cluster

    I have 7 ESX in a cluster... 2 ESX are unable to migrate virtual machines into and out of the host... When we try to perform a manual migration, it displays the following error...

    Impossible to pass. Host CPU is not compatible with the requirements of the Virtual Machine to CPUID level 0 x 80000001 registry "edx" host bits: 1110:1111:1101:0011:1111:1011:1111:1111 required: 11 x 0:1 x 11: 1100:0011:1111:x 0x1: 1111:1111 inconsistency detected for these characteristics: * NX/XD (data execution protection). If the Virtual Machine does not have this feature, power off the virtual machine and delete the requirement of NX/XD by changing the settings of the virtual machine (advanced options).

    Looks like 2 of the 7 ESX has disabled NX/XD (or could be activated I don't know which) in the BIOS of the Server - VMware allows you to maske this characteristic shape the VM so it can vmotion between these hosts - initially put there where the NX/XD bit became more popular in order to allow users to migrate between these hosts with different parameters CPU-

  • How can I move virtual machines from a local data store for a new iSCSI SAN?

    Hello guys,.

    Now that we have a new iSCSI SAN market how can I tranfer all the virtual machine to a local data store for a new SAN? Can I stop the VM in the host, and then copy the DataStore files with all the info on the new volume?

    Thank you

    Alternatively, you can use VMware converter or cold Migration / Storage VMotion if you have the appropriate licenses.

  • Manually migrate virtual machines from the host is not responding.

    I have a 3 host cluster.  One of the guests became unresponsive.  Continue to run all the virtual machines connected to the host is not responding and I can't RDP for them.  I am able to SSH to the host does not respond, but not connect via vCenter.

    Restart the services will cancel the virtual machines running?  If this isn't the case, then what is the command to restart the services?

    What is the best plan to manually migrate those virtual machines for the other two hosts?

    SSH, cd to \usr\sbin, then run "services.sh restart" (without the quotes). Which will restart management services, with no impact to your VM. Then you should be able to re - connect with Vcenter.

  • migrate virtual machines from view 5.1 5.2 view Horizons

    Rather than upgrade my current view 5.1 deployment, I'm looking to the installation environment a separate Horizon view 5.2 to migrate to. (1 VCS and 1 VSS)  My users are on dedicated desktop computers that I want to keep during the migration to the new environment.  Is it possible to add desktop computers in a pool without using the template for the pool?   What is the best way to do it?

    Thanks in advance.

    This depends a lot on whether the pool of dedicated assignment users using right now cosists of related or desktop full clone clones. If you use clones related, there are not many things can be done, except so use the Windows Easy Transfer utility to export the profiles of existing virtual machines, hover over the users to a new pool and then use WET to restore their profiles. In addition, if you use Persona for the existing pool, which would save the profile and settings, but any installed application would go when users have been moved to the new linked clone pool.

    If you use full clone desktop computers, you could remove the portal administrator existing display, but not delete disk can create a pool of manual in the new portal administrator display and add the desktop full clone existing to the new pool. This assumes that the old display environment and a new share a common vCenter Server and underlying hosts. Otherwise, you will need to pass a complete clone of a vCenter to another (probably by exporting an ovf of this virtual machine) and then import it into the new.

    I think that there are options, but none of them are ideal. In any case, it would be a good idea to use something like the WET utility to ensure that you have a valid backup of the user's profile before you do anything else.

  • Move the virtual machine from one host to another with shared storage

    Hello

    I have a question on how to move a virtual machine from one ESX 4 host to a host ESXi 5.  These hosts have access to the same shared storage but the ESX 4 host is outside the network and host ESXi 5 is inside the network so vMotion is not an option.  They are in different groups.  I know that there must be an easy way to move this virtual machine, but for the life of me, I can't find it.  I guess I have remove the virtual machine from the external cluster but how to make the virtual machine in the internal cluster?

    Thanks in advance...

    If both host access to the data store even where VM's store, just stop the virtual machine, remove inventory on ESXi 4, go to ESXi 5 vSphere vSphere, browse the data store where the VM is stored, do a right-click on the .vmx file and add to the inventory.

  • migrate virtual machines to esxi 3.5 free vsphere 4.1 without vcenter

    Hi all

    I have vms on 2 hosts esxi 3.5 with direct (without san)-attached storage that I want to migrate to a new server esxi under license of 4.1 vsphere essentials. I intend using the stand-alone converter to migrate virtual machines from 3.5 to 4.1 and then upgrade the other two hosts to 4.1 and then moving some virtual machines using the converter.

    I have Web servers that I don't want to bring down more than 10 to 20 minutes (not the 1 to 2 hours that should be a cold conversion with converter) so I try to use the feature p2v on the virtual machine running Web servers.

    Has anyone done this with no san and no vcenter? If so how did you do?

  • migrate virtual machines to new host

    How can I migrate easily all my virtual machines (12) on my current 5.1 ESXi host to new host ESXi 5.1... ?

    [1] put the former host's hard drive in the new host and perform an upgrade from 5.1 ESXi installation disk (the hard drives of the two hosts are the same)?

    [2] put HDD in the new host as a secondary, pop disk in the ESXi 5.1 installation disc to install ESXi 5.1 on the new host's hard drive, but migrate/import virtual machines from the data on the secondary drive (drive old host) store? the host of the former

    [3] pop in the ESXi 5.1 installation disc to install ESXi 5.1 on the new host's hard drive. Once completed, put the hard drive of the host of the former in the new host as a secondary drive and copy/import virtual machines from the data store on the secondary drive (drive old host) using VMware vSphere Client?

    [4] install ESXi 5.1 on the new host, he networked with the old host and use VMware vCenter Converter to import virtual machines from the old host?

    What might work is engaging the larger disk of 'old' to a SATA port once you have installed the disk again, ESXi. Attaching to a port USB probably won't work because VMFS volumes are not supported on USB devices.

  • How to move virtual machines from one host to another without full VI and vMotion?

    Hello

    could you help me with a question?

    I have two installed hosts with ESXi 3.5 U5, which are connected to the shared iSCSI (Openfiler) - VMs storage are installed on the storage disk. My requirement is to have a cheap solution of DR - in case of failure of a host, I need to move and start VM on the host of work. How to achieve without going through VMware Infrastructure 3.5 and vMotion?

    I found this article:

    http://www.virtualizetips.com/2010/04/how-to-move-a-VM-without-vCenter-or-storage-VMotion/

    but RCLI needs Infrastructure of VMware ESXi does not have default CLI So, how to move VMs between hosts (of course I mean "cold" move) without byuing any additonal VMware SW? It is generally possible in my situation?

    Thank you.

    Danas

    If the virtual machines are running in shared storage (two guests see the same storage iSCSI or NFS) then it's simple. If a host goes down, then look for the data store on the ESXi host work. Navigate through folders for each virtual machine, right-click on the VMX file and add to the inventory. You will then be able to turn on the virtual machine.

    To move a virtual machine from one host to another, as long as both hosts had the same processors, you can pause the VM on the single host, browse and add the virtual machine to the inventory on the second break host and the United Nations.

    If the virtual machines are on local storage, but the two hosts are connected to the same shared storage, clone virtual machines on a daily basis from local storage to shared storage. Use something like ghettoVCB http://communities.vmware.com/docs/DOC-8760 make the clone. In the case of a server failure, you will be able to browse the data store, add to the inventory on the shared storage and switch the cloned machine.
