In the previous article, we talked a lot about Veeam Quick Migration. It is recommended that you read the article before reading the article below, which describes the method for moving virtual machines between two ESXi hosts using Veeam Quick Migration.
Virtual machine transfer between two ESXi hosts via Veeam Quick Migration
Before you can move a VM by Veeam Backup and Replication between two hosts, ESXi hosts must be added to the structure or Infrastructure of your VM server. If you do not know how to do this, you can read the following:
Add vSphere Server to Veeam
Here we assume that you have added at least two ESXi to Veeam Backup and Replication before. Now select Virtual Infrastructure from the Inventory section and then choose the vSphere server to display the virtual machines it contains. Click on the name of the virtual machine you intend to transfer.
Now select Quick Migration from the top menu.
From the Host or Cluster Host section, select the destination. (It is possible to transfer a virtual machine using this feature to a Cluster if you wish)
Here's an option called Force Veeam quick migration. If you've read the previous article, you know that the Quick Transfer process is such that it first examines the possibility of vMotion on the virtual infrastructure, and in the absence of it, chooses one of the Cold Switch or Hot Switch methods. Make Enable this option if you do not want to check vMotion and be sure to transfer it via Veeam.
In the final section, you can specify that if the migration is successful, the virtual machine files will be deleted from the source server.
As you can see in the picture, you will see a lot of information at the time of the transfer in a new window.
After the transfer ends, the Job ended message will be displayed in the Action section.
Please note that if your virtual infrastructure network is complex and multiple Port Configures have been configured, after the transfer, make sure that the virtual machine is connected to which Port Group or Standard Switch.
