Best/Fastest Way to move VMs from one ESXi 5 host to another - Local storage Only
Posted on 2014-10-23
Vsphere Essentials 5.1 - I need to decommission one of my ESXi servers. All storage is local. What is is the best/fastest way to get the data moved from one server to another.
Currently I am trying to "Export to OVF" from my laptop while connected to vCenter, but it estimates that export a 100GB VM will take 16 hours.
Is this the best method - Export to OVF and the Import the OVF on the new server? Is there a faster was to do the export/import?
Thanks for your help!
