Hello All;

I have a 1TB drive of which has 11 VMs on it.
Taking up about 95% of the space.
I purchased some 500GB driver, I am in the process of moving the VMs over.

What I have done.
#1:
Using the datastore, I chose the VMs and I "Moved" them.
It is going to take a few days to move the ones I selected over, about 426GB.

#2: I tried the OpenSSH
Just to move one of the VMs over that is 60GB, will take over 24-hours.

Code for the SSH

[root@localhost:/vmfs/volumes/5b005dd5-2ce20e85-e704-001517fcd2e8] scp -r "00 - DNS Server" root@192.168.2.101:/vmfs/volumes/Date-2016/"00\\-\\DNS\\Server"

How can I make this go faster?
It is only going from one drive to another drive, on the same server.

Thanks
