Good Afternoon:

I am working on migrating low end vm's from our ESX installation to ESXi and storage vMotion intigues me.

What I need is the ability to svmotion from ESX 2.5.4 local vmfs storage to ESXi 3.5 local vmfs storage. What I have discovered so far is that I cannot even go from 3.5 ESXi local storage to 3.5 ESXi local storage as the storage is "not shared". Bah!

What I have tested (successfully I might add), is this:

1. Create shared storage both ESXi servers can see. I used NFS storage for this - any NFS storage will do.
2. sVmotion VM from ESXi One server local vmfs storage to shared NFS storage - 6 minutes for 10 GB
3. vMotion VM from ESXi server One to ESXi server Two. 13 Seconds
4. sVmotion VM from shared NFS storage to ESXi server Two local vmfs storage. -  29 minutes
Works great in 3.5 Since 2.5.4 does NOT do NFS, what is my best bet there?

Any comments on that?
