#VMware vSphere 6.0 vMotion – Crossing vCenter vMotion

Learn how Cross-vSwitch vMotion is supported between two standard switches, between a standard and distributed switch and also between two distributed switches in this video.

To enable migration across vCenter Server instances, your environment must meet these requirements:

  • The source and destination vCenter Server instances and ESXi hosts must be running version 6.0 or later. 
  • Both vCenter Server instances must be in Enhanced Linked Mode and must be in the same vCenter Single Sign-On domain so that the source vCenter Server can authenticate to the destination vCenter Server.
  • Both vCenter Server instances must be time-synchronized with each other for correct vCenter Single Sign-On token verification. 
  • For migration of compute resources only, both vCenter Server instances must be connected to the shared virtual machine storage.
