Is it possible to migrate a VM from one ESXI host to another without vCenter using the free version of vSphere?
I want to migrate a few VMs including a secondary Domain Controller to another host. I know live migrate is out, but I thought regular powered off migration would still be possible. Looks like it's not however. Can someone confirm?
What are the alternatives? I was thinking of copying the VM data-files off to an NFS NAS backed datastore and then copy them over to the new target host data store and import the vm from the VMX file to the new host? What I am concerned about is how if at all, doing this will effect the DC VM?
