I am trying to figure out where to find the data that will tell me when a a VM is moved from 1 datastore to another datastore. I have looked at the properties basic report pack - infrastructure changes (template) -VM -???? I just can not seem to find what I am looking for. We are trying to figure out how much time has been spent moving vm's to datatstores to make a case for the enterprise version of Sphere. We are using Veeam Reporter version 4 but plan on upgrading soon. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hmm...could you please tell me how exactly you're going to estimate the total time required for migration of other VMs? I will take a look at my labs tomorrow to verify if we have all the data that you need.

The case we are tring to get across is that everytime we move a VM from 1 host to another or we need to move a datastore we have to schedule an outage to move the VM. This is usually not a big deal except that means working a weekend or evening and at this point I would rather not work every weekend. If I can show how many hours that systems are down when they don't have to be (vMotion and Storage vMotion) I can justify the cost of the upgrade.
