To relocate a virtual machine's storage (including disks) 1 Determine the path to the virtual machine configuration file. 2 Run svmotion, for example: svmotion --url=https://myvc.mycorp.com/sdk --datacenter=DC1 --vm="[storage1] myvm/myvm.vmx:new_datastore" The example is now you can power on all the other esx hosts Reply zinto says 25 June 2010 at 5:44 am Removed vm from inventory and re-added it - started OK then. For physical compatibility mode RDMs, you can migrate the mapping file only. Like Show 0 Likes (0) Actions 2.
This is the approach I have taken a few times and things just worked fine. I am not very experienced at troubleshooting any deeper than the VC / GUI. Sometimes your flash drive may have issues carrying files so this will completely restore it to manufacturing settings. Not sure on your SAN, but in the VNX I had to also make sure that it could see my esxi hosts, so those had to be added in as well.
That fails with the error - A general system error occurred: error while calling DiskLibWrapperLoader_IsDeltaDisk. If I recall right this was specific to Dell servers that had flash installed for you to install Esxi on.

The storage is shared, the esxi host can see the storage, I tried a cold migration and got the same error message.
