I know that cross-posting is frowned upon so I'll be delicate. I started a thread in the Activation & Updates section because it looked like most of the members in this section were not running enterprise-level HV.
I want to convert from VM's running on a single ESXi 5 Host to 8-node Clusters with HA (high availability) as well as use VMware's automated solutions for vMotion & Failover.
I am having a problem with licenses getting deactivated when they are migrated and a few other instances which I have more clearly outlined in my thread here: Virtual Environment: Reactivation Required?
If anyone else is running vSphere & ESXi 5 and using vMotion & Failover in HA clusters could you please post what your Windows 7 setup is?
I am running mostly W7x64 Professional with individual (retail) activation keys. I believe this is the root of the problem but I'm not able to switch over to a locally controlled Volume Licensing program for a variety of reasons.
Thanks for any comments or feedback.
