Syntax for the SVMotion command

Jason Tramer Jason Tramer Profile: Jason Tramer

Whenever I need to do a Storage VMotion in ESX I never seem to remember the command. I always end up looking this up so I  just wanted to record the syntax for the SVMotion command in the Remote CLI so that next time I need it six months from now, I’ll have an easy reference.

Here it is: --datacenter=<DC Name> --url=https://<FQDN of VCMS>/sdk --username=<Username on VCMS> --password=<Password> --vm "[<Source datastore>] <Path to VMX file of VM>:<Destination datastore>"

Hope this helps
