Are there any work arounds to migrate a VxRail from one external vCenter to another? There are articles on how it can be done with a generic vsan cluster, but all documentation i've seen for VxRail states the VxRail needs a factory reset. With new nodes requiring VxRail 4.5 (which requires vCenter 6.5) I can only assume others are in the same boat as not being at vCenter 6.5 yet in large environments.
Articles on vsan migration to new vCenter
Solved! Go to Solution.
A couple of things to just be aware of on this as we looked into the external vCenter for our clusters.
With the procedure EMC_Troy says its not supported unless you get EMC to do it so be aware of that. So in theory the best way is to rebuild the cluster as that is supported.
Hope that helps.
A few points to what you mentioned:
For Dell EMC VxRAIL to stay relevant the ability to migrate to new vCenters in a supported way is a must.
IMO the internal vcenter has very little use case for us.
