Is it possible to do vMotion on SCSI/iSCSI. If yes, what are the conditions to do that?

I've done plenty of vMotions using iSCSI storage. I don't recall that there was anything special that I had to do to make it work. The newest SAN I use is Fibre Channel and I migrated everything from the old iSCSI storage to the new Fibre Channel system using vMotion.

If you've already using the iSCSI array for storage, you should be able to use vMotion.

Seems like source and destination CPU type is more important in vMotion.

When you say SCSI is the storage sharing by the 2 hosts that you wanted to want vMotion the VM? 

Shared storage is a requirement for vMotion.

Have a nice day.

Good point... I just considered the iSCSI portion of the equation!

Of course, Hyper-V 3.0 will allow live migrations even without shared storage when it's released ;-)

I'm really looking forward to Hyper-V 3.0. I think MS will do a good job with it.
