Zerto Cloud Connector (ZCC) vMotion Between Hosts
Viewed 214 times
This article explains the ability to VMotion/migrate a ZCC machine from one host to another in the event that the ZCC needs to be evacuated off of a host.
- If the target host has a different CPU or CPU architecture than the source host, VMware may require the VM to be powered off prior to VMotioning. In this case, a guest OS shut down should be initiated on the ZCC. Note that this will effectively create a disconnection between the sites since the appliance will be unable to bridge the connection while it is shut down. If possible, VMotioning to a similar host is preferred.
- The target host must have the same access to networks required for this ZCC. This includes all appropriate VLAN tagging on the vSwitch or VDS, as well as any required trunking at the physical layer. If the disconnection is greater than 5 minutes, it is recommended to VMotion the ZCC back to the originating host and investigate the network on the target host of the VMotion.
