VEEAM Free - Unable to move between datastores

Post by zimmerru » Jul 29, 2013 2:49 pm

I just downloaded and installed VEEAM 6.5 and what I was wanting to do is move a VM from one iSCSI data store on my host, to a second iSCSI datastore on the same host. But when I go to the quick migration, the only option I have is to move it to another host. The box for datastore is greyed out and I am unable to choose the destination as a datastore.

I am sure I saw a page indicating that the free VEEAM B&R could move VM's between datastores... in fact here it is:

Any suggestions? am I missing something or is this supposed to be possible?

Rusty, is it still disabled if you select the same host, where the VM currently resides, as a target host for migration?

Yep, it's supposed to be possible. Can you confirm that you’ve taken all required steps?

• Go Virtual Machines node
• Right-Click a VM
• Quick Migration -> Destination
• Host or Cluster: Select the same host
• Datastore: Select necessary datastore that is attached to this host
• Select proxy servers
• Quick Migrate
