Manual Vmotion of Exchange servers 2010

I have 2 Exchange servers member of a DAG. They are both virtual machines (Vmware) and they are on 2 different ESX hosts.(ESX1 and ESX2)
I need to migrate them one at a time to ESX3 and ESX4 in order to do maintenance on ESX1 and ESX2.

I wonder if the Migration (manual vmotion is doable)

thanks

Yes, its doable if you already have vMotion setup.  You can simply vMotion one exchange at a time to different ESX host. Just right click the exchange VM -> Migrate -> Change host.

Hope this helps.

Yes you can live migrate them(vMotion) if they meet all the requirements for it.
Make sure you do this during the off hours as there will be lesser workload on the system.
