To take advantage of the increased service availability offered by vMotion, you can set up a cluster and enable vMotion for all the hosts in the cluster.

Hosts must conform to the requirements described in Host Configuration Requirements for vMotion and EVC Requirements.


VMware recommends creating an empty EVC cluster and moving hosts into it later as the simplest way of creating an EVC cluster with minimal disruption to your existing infrastructure.


To migrate a virtual machine with vMotion, you must configure both the source and destination hosts.


When you add a standalone host already being managed by vCenter Server to a DRS cluster, the host’s resources become associated with the cluster.
