Hi

The dedicated cloud host has an double NIC thus enabling the usage of vrack.

You would create an connection using the internal network between the two dedicated clouds. Once the connection has been established, you can use rsync to move the data between the cloud.

There are other methods as well where by you move the entire VM rather than files.

You may wish to contact support directly regarding this.

Thanks

Danny

I know vRack is for Vm and not for Host. How i can transfer the Vms using vRack?

I have 2 separate DC infrastructure and i'd like transfer the VMs from vSphere 5 to vSphere 5.5.
The procedure indicated by Support Team is:
1) From "Browse Datastore" Copy vmdk to another directory of datastore
2) Transfer tough sftps the vmdk into another infrastructure datastore
3) Create new Vm on new datacloud and import the vmdk.

But this is many slow and i think that Windows Activation ask to reactivate Windows.
There are meny difficult way to transfer the VMs?

Thank a lot.
