vMotion of Edge appliance on NSX-V

This post was originally published on this site

Hi. We are running nsx-v v6.4.6 and I would like to vMotion one of our Edge gateways. We know, and support confirmed, that the recommended way to move an Edge to another host is to change the configuration in NSX Manager and it will re-deploy. I am trying to move this without any network outage or blip. Our Edge are not in HA mode, but we have a 2nd Edge in the same cluster that will take traffic as well if needed. This was a professional services design. Perhaps we need to re-visit HA mode.


I know myself, and some others, have vMotioned Edge, DLR and Controller with no issue. Are just getting lucky this entire time? Well I know Controller can be vMotion.
