Migrating a VMware Guest Server.

In this example, we are using a HOST1 and HOST2 these are the physical servers using VMware operating system.

We are moving a Guest1 Windows 2008 R2 DataCenter server  from HOST1 to HOST2 using a vSphere Client 5.x. You don't need to shut-down the Guest1 to migrate to HOST2.

In vSphere client, simply select the Guest1, right click to select Migrate. In a pop-up windows, select Migration Type, select Change host, click Next.

In Select Destination, click the (+) Cluster to see available HOST, here you will see your HOST1 and HOST2. Select HOST2, click Next, select High priority (Recommended), click Next. In Ready to Complete, click Finish.

In the Recent Tasks, you will see the migration status of the Guest1 server, the status will return completed when it's done. Now check your Guest1 Server.

Your migration is now complete.
