Moving a Target Host from One Cluster to Another

KB Number:
000001710

Symptoms:

An administrator may need to move a host, which is a target for replication, from one cluster under a vCenter instance, to another cluster under the same vCenter instance.  While this process is supported, this article outlines some points to bear in mind.

Solution:

In order to move a target host from one cluster under a vCenter instance, to another cluster under the same vCenter instance, follow these instructions:

  1. Shutdown the Guest OS of the associated VRA.

    • Note that at this point, associated VPGs will enter Error state.

  2. Place the target host into Host Maintenance Mode.

  3. Move the target host from Cluster A to Cluster B.

  4. Exit Host Maintenance Mode.

  5. Power on the VRA.

    • At this point, associated VPGs will enter a short Bitmap Sync, and then enter Protecting state.

  6. If the associated VPGs were configured with a target of a resource pool beneath Cluster A, and cluster B also contains a resource pool, you must edit these VPGs, and change the default and VM specific target host settings to Cluster B, instead of the resource pool beneath Cluster B.
