Migrate VM to another datastore

Recommended Posts



I have my current ESXI datastore on a 320Gb 7200rpm drive and now I installed a Samsung 250Gb SSD. What I want is to remove the 320Gb drive and make the new SSD drive the datastore. The installation it´s completed and I can see the new datastore on vSpehere, but hot to migrate my current VM-s to the new datastore?


What I think to do is :

- Shutdown the VM

- Browse the datastore and move VM files to the new datasore from vSphere

- Edit the VM and set the new path for files

- power up and pray

- repeat for each VM


is it the correct and fastest why to do this?
