I’m going to perform some migrations from a Hyper-V to an ESXi server. On both servers the production VM’s are using 1 Gb NIC’s as the switches in the environment doesn’t have any 10 Gb port. However both hosts actually has 10Gb NIC’s, so I’m wondering if I could create a direct connection from each host using the 10 Gb NIC’s and use that connection for the conversion? The converter tool will be running from a VM that is not on any of the two hosts (I could put a VM running the converter on one of the hosts), but SCVMM and vCenter will not be on any of the hosts. The conversions will be offline migrations.
If it is possible to achieve this, how would I let the converter know or what specifically should I do – if anything?
Thank you in advance for any hints.
