I am running VMware Essentials 5.5 on a small cluster and need to migrate my Windows based vCenter server to a new datastore as the SAN it resides on is being retired. Both the old and new SAN are visible to my VMware hosts as are both the source and destination datastores.
I know it can be done by shutting down the VM on the host it resides on, removing from inventory, copy the files to the new datastore, then add back into the inventory .
I am looking for a way to do it without taking the VM offline as this plays havoc with our DR replication.
Can this be done using the Veeam Quick Migration option? Can anyone suggest another way to migrate it without shutting it down?
