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

After you make sure the hosts are licensed for vMotion, you configure networking on them to enable vMotion.

1

You can assign a license key to an ESXi from the Licensing page in the vSphere Client.

2

You must verify that vMotion is licensed on all the hosts whose resources you want to be available for dynamic reallocation.

3

You must choose whether to use vSphere standard switches or vSphere distributed switches for networking.
