VMWare Vmotion (Migrate) & Exchange 2010 DAG
Posted on 2014-04-07
So I am having an issue with the vshield web manager , when you access the web interface you get the spinning wheel. Tried to do a restart of the web services as per KB and that didn't fix the issue. Called VmWare and they want me to do a rolling reboot on our cluster of 3 hosts due to a long disconnected iscsi link.
After evaluating this I see an issue. We run Exchange 2010 RTM with a DAG, Vmotion is not support from my searches. Is the proper way, to failover the DAG to a mailbox server running on another host then shutdown and vmotion or vmotion the running mailbox server? To complicate this we also have a email archiver whos database is not in a DAG due to best practices.
