  • Afaik, the only way for no downtime is having the license with vMotion and shit. And I'd think you'd know this, since you paid $$$$ for two licenses, right?

    No, vmotion isn't your only option. If both are connected to the same SAN, it's a very simple matter of registering an existing VM on the new host, snapshot including memory on the origin, power off there, and power-on at the destination.

    If you don't already have shared storage between the systems (iSCSI or NFS), then other options include ghettoVCB, Veeam Quick Migration, and plenty of others. You can even script snapshots + copying data files with vmkfstools, etc., yourself.

    Not interested in the job, though.

  • I keep thinking about this post when I see no downtime:

    I’m not sure if Exsi supports it, but in theory you could DRBD, let it sync all over in “real time” (network latency going to hurt)... then once they’re identical, shut A off, and turn B on.

    Power off and power on by definition includes downtime.

    You can use community edition of Veeam to perform a live migration. Alternately, use vCenter to perform the live migration. PM us if you are interested in having us do this for you.

    This requires paid ESXi, right? To have access to the VMWare API?

    There's a $$$ and complexity difference between minimal and no downtime. Since one usually has regular maintenance anyway, one can usually live with 5 minutes downtime to save money. It's only really critical infrastructure that needs "no downtime".

    Yes, it requires a minimum paid version of ESXi due to API restrictions on the free version of ESXi.

    You're completely wrong here.

    A key part of my comment was "snapshot including memory". Anybody with a little ESXi experience should know exactly what that means...

    It refers to the check-box seen here:

    When you power-on a VM to a snapshot that included the VM's memory, the system starts from the EXACT moment in time the snapshot was taken... Your uptime is unchanged. Everything is running.

    If you are quick, your network connections will all still be open, and connected systems will only see a momentary slowdown in their communications (which you have with vMotion as well).

    Doing it quickly is the hard part.

    Power on and power off

    Also this guy is literally want to hire people. Why no one interested for the job?

    Is it because OP doesn't say how much he is willing to pay?

    They need to pay $17K for absolutely no downtime.
