Moving ESXI to new gears (Server and SAN)

This post was originally published on this site

Hi all,


I am planning to move our ESXI 6.5 hosts to new Servers (7.0). Can you please advise me of the best practice?

I had done migration previously which was with the same version, no issues.

Wondering, am I able to backup the ESXI 6.5 config and restore it on the new server (Esxi 7.0)?

I tried it in my dev lab, it didn’t work even after changing UUID. I would appreciate your suggestions/comments.


Vcenter version is 6.5
