vSphere 5.0 has many new compelling features and enhancements. Sometimes though it is that little tiny enhancement that makes life easier. In this case I am talking about a tiny enhancements for vMotion which I know many of you will appreciate. It is something that both Frank Denneman and I have addressed multiple times with our engineers and finally made it into this release.
Selection Resource Pools?
I guess we have all cursed when we had to manually migrate VMs around and accidentally selected the wrong Resource Pool. This operational “problem” has finally been resolved and I am very happy about it. As of 5.0 the “source” resource pool will automatically be selected. Of course it is still possible to override this and to select a different resource pool but in most cases “next – next – finish” will be just fine.
