Subject VMware: Mass Storage Migration
Date Thu, 16 Apr 2015 15:03:31 GMT

I was just wondering whether it is possible/supported to use the storage migration features/functionality
directly in VMware without using CloudStack to first disconnect the data disks, move the VM
+ Root Disk, then move the data disk and re-attach?

Seeing as ACS uses VMware API's would it not just do a VM check (as it does) and discovers
that the VM is not located in specific storage anymore?

The reason I ask is that I have ~40TB of VM data which needs to move, and the ACS steps is
long and tedious. I have considered using CM to do this, but am not 100% familiar with the
product yet.
