Force Specific Network for System Center VMM Network Migrations RRS feed

  • Question

  • We're running SCVMM 2012 SP1.  The SCVMM system has 3 networks that are shared between it and all the Hyper-V (2008 R2) hosts.  Of these, the network we use to connect to the VMM console is running on a 1Gbps link.  The remaining 2 networks are both 20Gbps a piece.

    We need to do a number of non-clustered VM migrations from one host to another, so we'll be using the network for this.  The migrations we've done so far have gone just fine, except they always use the 1Gbps link; neither of the 20Gbps links are ever used.

    Is there any way to force SCVMM to use a specific network for network based transfers?  I've gone so far as unchecking the "Used by management" check box for the 1Gbps network on both the source and destination hosts, as well as checking the same option for the 20Gbps links, but this has no effect on the network based transfers.
