Moving existing Host into new Cluster
Posted on 2011-09-16
Quick question....I have found info on migrating a host from one cluster to another, but not moving an existing host into a cluster. Here is my setup....
Client has a new Vmware setup that includes 2 Hosts running ESXi 4.1 and managed through VCenter. Until now they have just been seperate hosts.
Host A has been in production a couple months and has about 5 server VMs on it and a Linked Pool clone for desktops. Host B was just recently setup and only consists of an ESXi 4.1 server with a Datastore connected. They are on the same subnet connected through fiber.
I have created a cluster for HA (not DRS) and just want to move both hosts into it. When I go to drag and drop Host A comes up with a warning saying "...it will collapse resourse pools..." which does not sound good. Host B moved just fine.
Host A stores the VCenter server. So I am trying to figure out what the "collapse" actually means and the best method to move a host into the cluster that is in use.
