Re: move vsa 8.5

Have you tried to move only the VMDK at SCSI 1:0 ?

I have not tried it on ESX4, but on 3.5 it was not possible to move a single VMDK unless the VM config (.vmx & friends) was also moved.

If nothing helps, you can try to do a copy with "vmkfstools", detach the old VMDK and re-attach the copied VMDK on the new datastore.

Sure, you can delete the VSA, but then all data is gone!
So make a good backup before you touch it.
