Add the hosts ESXi-A and ESXi-B to your vSphere inventory. Place them in the cluster My EVC Cluster to ensure CPU compatibility between hosts.

1

Select My EVC Cluster in the navigator.

2

Right-click the cluster and select Add Host.

This scenario demonstrates how to add the hosts to your vSphere inventory. If the hosts are already managed by your vCenter Server system, you can move them to the EVC-enabled cluster that you created. See the procedure for adding managed hosts to a cluster in vSphere Resource Management.

3

Type the host name or IP address of the host ESXi-A, and click Next.

The example scenarios in the beginning of this publication demonstrate how to configure your ESXi hosts with specific IP address, user name, and password.

4

Type the user name and password for the host, and click Next.

5

View the summary information and click Next.

6

Assign a license, and click Next.

For the example scenario, you can use Evaluation Mode, which lets you use all vSphere features for a limited period of time.

7

Keep Enable lockdown mode deselected, and click Next.

8

Click Finish.

9

Repeat the procedure for the host ESXi-B.

You have added your two hosts to the cluster My EVC Cluster.

vMotion requires a dedicated network over which to migrate the virtual machine data. Configure networking on your ESXi hosts.
