I was wondering if there was a better way of doing this then what im currently doing. I have now have 2 Datacenters (one is now PROD, and the other is DEV/QA) in my vCenter server and I need to move some VM's between them. I thought about doing different clusters, but as we are using vDS I rather not have all the useless networks that DEV and QA make end up in my prod environment. I have shared storage between the 2 datacenters till I get my Production equipment off of the DEV/QA system The way I'v been doing it is powering down the VM, associating the VM with Prod datacenter, fixing the networks, then powering it on, then removing the VM from inventory on the DEV system. Is this the correct way? or is there a better plan? My vCenter server is running 5.1, and all my hosts are running ESXi 5.1 as well. the networking for vMotion, FT, and management are the same in both Datacenters.
