  • 1.  Relocate vCenters SQL Server to different Hardware

    Posted Feb 14, 2012 08:47 PM

    I have two clusters.  One is AMD and another is Intel.  We are trying to retire the AMD blades but I am getting to a point where I need to move the SQL VM that hosts the vCenter DB.

    How would I be able to do that since vcenter will be down since the SQL server needs to be powered off to move from AMD to Intel? I would imagine I need to remove it from inventory then just connect to an Intel host directly and re-add it to inventory?

    Any better way?

    ....I would imagine I need to remove it from inventory then just connect to an Intel host directly and re-add it to inventory?

    That is probably the easiest and quickest approach

    If it is on shared storage that is exactly what you will have to do - remove from inventory on the AMD host and readd it to the Intel host

    Figured that would be the case.  Just wanted a sanity check.

    Thanks all.
