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

If you are using vMotion to move the VM from node to another, then the users shouldn’t ever notice the problem. The length of time it will take will depend on the amount of RAM, and how much load the server is under, and how fast the network is. It could take anywhere from a minute or two, up to 20-30 minutes.
