added stand alone host to vmware farm ESXi 4.1
Posted on 2011-10-25
We have a vmware farm running ESXi 4.1 and I have a stand alone host running ESXi 4.1...a few of you have helped me move the VMs from the stand alone to the farm, now I hope to vmotion the VMs, that are on our weakest server on the farm, to other hosts and remove that host, then bring in our formerly stand lone ESXi host and make that part of the farm. Then, of course, vmotion some of the VMs to the new, more powerful, host on the farm. Is this a simple procedure? From what I have seen with VMWARE and VMOTION, hopefully this should be pretty straight forward. I know i can easily vmotion VMs from the host we no longer need and there is no longer any crucial data on the stand alone host. What is the best procedure?
