    As you mention shared vmdk, you will use shared SCSI controller and vmotion will not work .  https://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=1003797

    You might be doing it following Enabling or disabling simultaneous write protection provided by VMFS using the multi-writer flag (1034165) | VMware KB   , but it clearly states that might cause data corruption.Read that KB really thoroughly and be sure you know what you are doing and that you have a backup :smileyhappy: .
