Re: Export datastore to esxi in different vcenter

Hello Stefano,

Unfortunately it is not possilbe to export Simplivity datastores between vCenters using traditional means. The best option available would be to create a new datastore on the destination location and use Storage VMotion to transfer over the required data. Tedious I know.

Thanks,

Re: Export datastore to esxi in different vcenter

Hello Stefano,

there is a way to achieve this using the dsv-nfsd-export-add command. If you`re familiar with the dsv- commands it`s easy to handle, if not please open a support request to have an engineer assisting you.

Pre-requirement is of cause either the storage kernel or the management kernel reachable from the node you want to share to
