Storage vMotion Custom Task
This task is used to migrate the Virtual machine disk files from one datastore to another on the ESX host. The difference between vMotion and Storage vMotion is that: vMotion moves a VM from one ESXi host to another ESXi host and retains the storage location of the VM, and Storage vMotion changes the storage location of the VM and moves it to another datastore on the ESXi host. The VM data files can be moved to any datastore on the ESXi host which includes local and shared storage.
VM must be in the powered off state.
Check the target datastore disk space.
The host on which the VM is running must have access to the source and target datastore.
