You can move most objects manually between folders, datacenters, resource pools, and hosts in the vSphere Client inventory.

You cannot move the root folder. If you connect directly to a host using the vSphere Client, you cannot move the host.

You can move inventory objects in the following ways:

Folders — move within a datacenter.

Datacenter — move between folders at a sibling or parent level.

Cluster — move between folders and within datacenters at a sibling or parent level.

Host — move between clusters and datacenters. When managed by vCenter Server, if a host is in a cluster, all virtual machines on the host must be shut down and the host must be placed into maintenance mode before it can be moved from the cluster.

Resource pools — move to other resource pools and folders.

Virtual machines — move to other resource pools, clusters, folders, datacenters, or hosts. When adding to anything other than a host, you must specify a target host.

Networks — move between folders at a sibling or parent level. You cannot move a dvPort Group independently of its parent Distributed Virtual Switch.

Datastores — move between folders at a sibling or parent level.
