There are 3 Questions that i would like to know of .

Till date , We have our ESX Servers added as part of Virtual Center through its IP address . We are planning to remove and add it using its FQDN . In this scenario , Will we be able to retain the performance data of the ESX Server and Virtual machines as such ?

Is there any impact when we change the name of the data stores with Production VMs running on them ?

How can we reroute VCB backup traffic on to a separate NIC ?

Thanks Sudharsan

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

1. The guest performance data will still be there as the names of the guest machine’s won’t be changing. The host performance data probably won’t be available as it should be tied to the old name.

2. No, the shouldn’t be any problem. VMware doesn’t use the data store name, it uses the physical address name which is different. The Data Store name is for us humans to read.

3. Put that NIC on a different subnet from your management network, and put the backup device on that same subnet. By default the traffic will go through the local network before it travels through a switched network.
