We have four esx v4.0 hosts and a vcenter server on 2003. Been running 7 years so it’s time to retire.
The vm’s are already on a new Equalogic iSCSI array.
I know I can’t vmotion between the different hardware platforms, and vcenter server 6.0 won’t manage ESXi 4.0 anyway.
If I bring up four new 6.0 hosts and a new vcenter server, I’m thinking I can shut down a vm, remove it from the 4.0 inventory, and add it to the 6.0 cluster. Then boot it up.
Would this work?
