Will Cold-migrating vCenter mess up my Veeam jobs?

Post by pufferdude » Jul 01, 2019 6:56 pm

I have a situation where I'm replacing old Intel hosts with new AMD hosts, which demands a "cold" migration (even though it's just a compute-resource migration as both old and new hosts can see the same datastores.)

Anyway, the migration of this one VM is straightforward enough, but I'm wondering if moving my vCenter VM to a new host in this way will mess up my Veeam backup jobs in any way? I back up VMs by tags, not by name, in case that matters.

It will be fine. In general, it's normal for VMs to move from host to host in vSphere ;) and cold migration is how vSphere HA (High Availability) feature effectively works, for example.
