Migrating VCenter Server
Posted on 2013-10-25
We built two new VMWare 5.5 hosts.
Our current VMWare VCenter server is a version 4.1 server.
Since we need a VCenter Server 5.5 to manage the 5.5 Host and we didn't have a physical server at the DR site. I deployed the VCenter Server 5.5 on a virtual machine that was attached to the version 4 infrastructure.
So now, I am trying to decide how to move this VCenter server to the new hosts.
I would have to remove the server from the 4.1 inventory, Then add it back to the new 5.5 inventory. But as soon as I power it down I won't have access to the 5.5 vcenter server, so I wouldn't be able to add it back in.
