Enabling and configuring the Vmotion

Hi Christina,

You need to consider the following:

  • Data store compatibility – the source and destination host must use a shared storage implemented using SAN or iSCSI.
  • Network compatibility – it requires a Gigabit ethernet network. Source and destination hosts must have same access to subnets and labels to each virtual ethernet adapter should match.
  • CPU compatibility – the source and destination host must have compatible CPUs.

Steps to configure VMotion:

  • Select the host that you want to enable VMotion
  • Click on Configuration, and on the left hand side there is a panel Hardware, click on Networking
  • In the Virtual Switch that you want to enable VMotion, click on Properties
  • In the vSwitch properties’ tab Ports, add a VMkernel configuration
  • After you add it, click on Edit
  • Here are the fields that are in the VMkernel Properties
  1. Port Properties
  2. Network Lab
  3. VLAN ID (Optional)
  4. VMotion: check to box to enable VMotion
  • Do the same thing to the other host that is in same cluster.

I hope it helped.
