Thanks Tim,

Will try on ESXi 5.5 & ACS 4.3 and revert my findings.

Subject: Re: CloudStack & vCenter Operations outside of CloudStack

Based on my experience with 4.2 and vSphere 5, CloudStack picks up vm migrations done from
vCenter within the same cluster.  I never tried across
cluster, but wouldn't expect it to work.    If the datastore was defined in
CloudStack as zone wide.
