Move/Duplicate ESXi5 disk
Posted on 2012-03-12
ESXi is installed on 2 mirrored 300Gb SAS disks: I feel more secured with hard drive vs USB boot.
The VM and .vmsk are on 3 else 300Gb SAS disks (RAID 5)
I wish to use 2x smaller SATA disks (146Gb) for ESXi and thus be able to add the mirrored 300 Gb to the RAID 5, then increase the datastore and so the vmdisks usable space.
1) How can I "diskcopy" the ESXi 300Gb mirrored disk to the new 146Gb mirrored set ?
2) Is it possible in the same way to move ESXi from hard disk to USB ? and duplicate USB in order to have a spare ?
Thanks for your kind help,
