"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Automation is provided by DRS and SDRS, e.g. it's Automatic, when enabled in your Host and Datastore Clusters.

DRS and SDRS and Licensed Options.

DRS is to Hosts, as SDRS is to Datastores.

e.g. DRS moves VMs between hosts in Host Clusters, SDRS moves VM storage (VMDKs) between Cluster datastores!

Troubleshooting, it either works or it does not work, check your vMotion Network!
