    storage vMotions is very slow between vCenters

    hello 

     

    i am trying do a storage vMotion of a 100 GB VM from one vCenter to a other vCenter within embedded  vcenter setup. live vMotion was failed stating vMotion networks are not communicating , cold migration happening but dead slow. Its taking hours to complete 100 GB for VM storage migration

    Do you have vMotion enabled on both hosts and also on the same network on each host that your trying to vMotion to and from?

    Here is the setting to enable vMotion on the network, this has to be done on each host on the same network.
