Presently, I am working on a training BE7K/ESX on which I have moved forward my config very far.
Licenses are installed on these VM(on the Publisher to be accurate)
My setup is 1 Publisher + 2 Subs.
In 1 month, I have to go on site and deploy my whole ToIP environment. And especially CUCM
An "old" BE7K is already on site
For paperworks & custom issues, I can not swap both BE7K.
I have to keep the "old" BE7K as main.
Then, I want to export all VM of my present training BE7K, and, when I am on site, install them on the "old" BE7K that is already on site.
I need an advice: what is the best operation to be done?
- ON the present BE7K: Copy from datastore? Move from Datastore? Export from datastore?
- Then on the one already on site: import? paste? move?...
- What operation will avoid me problems? Especially from licenses point of view?
Thank you for advice, community
You might have issues with the licensing when copying the VM's from ESXi to the other. You have to ask Cisco to help you with transferring the license. When you have version 12 licensing you de-register the product from the original ESXi and register it again on the target ESXi
