    Do you have vCenter Server managing both hosts?

    Do you have any kind of storage shared between the hosts?

    Are the hosts on the same ESXi version or different?

    Are the hosts using the same or different hardware?

    Hi,

    We dont have vcenter however I think the old host does. I do not manage the old host/VMware software which I need the VM cloning from its managed by our external support company, I will need to put in a request for them to clone the VM however I just want to know if its possible. The Reason I want this doing is because we aare loaning the hard ware for the host from the external support company and want to create our own infrastructure

     

    There is no link between the hosts, they are on the same network/subnet when it comes to the hardware of the hosts

    I think the host from the external support company is on 7 we are on 6.7

    You might have issues going from a newer release to an earlier one. Maybe just export/import ?
