I have a ESXi servert and Veeam is running in a ESXi and stored on the SAN. I have LUN1 and LUN2(vMotion)

I created a New VM(terminal server3) But during installation i choosed Local hard disk of this ESX host.

How can i change ESX host (terminal server3 )from Local hard disk to LUN2? and during the changing to LUN2 what happens logged clients on terminal server 3?
Thanks

If you have vCenter, and if you have the appropriate licensing (Enterprise), you can do a storage vMotion. But, since this is on a local disk, you need to power down the VM. So, if you have users connected, they will obviously be booted off.

Actually, I just tested it on my VM that's on local storage. You should be able to move your VM to a new LUN with it powered on. Rt-click on the VM -> select Migrate -> Choose "Datastore", then select the one you want to move your VM to, then finish the migration wizard.

Just select Migrate and select the new datastore LUN2, the VM will be migrated in real time with no downtime.

Yes, then you'll have to power down the VM unfortunately...

You can check what license 'edition' you have by either going to "Home" -> "Licensing" (in vCenter), or by simply clicking on a host and selecting the Summary tab on the right...

Veeam has a built in Migrate option. Try giving that a go.  It may be dependent on your Veeam licensing though

It is dependent on both Veeam & vSphere licensing, actually.
