  • As with any operation, you must select target datastore for datacenter migration. I don't know your architecture, but there is no reason to have 2 local vCenters and not to link them with Enhanced Linked Mode (ELM) otherwise.

  • VMware vSphere Replication (VR) is a product bundled with vSphere without additional cost. The VR product works hand-in-hand with vCenter Server, so if you want to set up a replication to the remote site, you'll have to have vCenter Server installed in the same location as well. VR can replicate VMs from any source storage to any target storage such that they can be local storage or a remote array.

  • You may have Windows Server 2008 R2 machines, perhaps with a Windows Server 2003 forest and a domain functional level still using the File Replication Service (FRS) as the default SYSVOL replication method. If so, you'll need to watch out because if you upgrade to Windows Server 2016 or 2019, you'll have to migrate to Distributed File System Replication (DFSR).

  • Yeah, you're right. The HTML5 client is lagging behind, but not for long I can tell you. I think since this post was written, at least two versions (6.7 U2 and 6.7 U3 went out) each one brought more into the HTML 5 client.

    It is just a question of time (next major version of vSphere NEXT) will most likely be phasing out the Adobe Flash client completely.
