Storage migration with AHV

One of the features my customers are missing in Nutanix and AHV is the possibility to migrate running virtual machines to another container. Well, the wait is over.

Recently, Nutanix released AOS 5.19 and among the many features in this Short Term Support release version, there is the live migration of the storage of a vm.

Although the feature is not implemented (yet) in Prism, it can be easily performed from the command line using acli.

Just log on to a controller vm of the cluster and enter the acli. The command is very simple and straight forward.
vm.update_container [name of vm] container=[name of container]

Of course, I had to try this in my lab environment and recorded it.
