Gabrie dropped the following message on Twitter:
@gabvirtualworld *sigh* Why do I always have to reselect the resource pool when migrating VMs? Now I can’t move multiple VMs at once when in diff pools.
Well I felt the same about this. For the people who don’t know what Gabrie means whit his tweet, I will add two screenshots to explain it. When you start the Migrate (VMotion) task, You need to select what kind of migration you want to do. I choose the Change host option:
If you want to migrate multiple VM’s then I think you will find the next screen as annoying as I and Gabrie find it.
So to get rid of this annoying option. I created a script with an UI to VMotion multiple VM’s at the same time. Note: You can only VMotion to one Selected host.
This is a printscreen of the GUI of the script:
I created a movie of the script in action:
You can download the script here: http://poshcode.org/1220
Gabrie thanks for testing the script!
