Viewing vMotion History in Network Director

vSphere vMotion is a feature that enables live migration of running virtual machines from one host to another with zero downtime and continuous network availability. vMotion is a key feature that enables the creation of a dynamic, automated and self-optimizing data center.

If a vMotion happens in any of the virtual machines that are under the management of Network Director, then Network Director initiates a job to track the vMotion and the corresponding changes to orchestration. You can view the status of the history of all the vMotions for your virtual network in the vMotion History page. You can also view the status of the orchestration job that is initiated because of this vMotion by clicking the Orchestration Job ID field.

After the orchestration job is completed successfully, you must manually resynchronize the physical switch’s configuration by using Network Director. If the system of record (SOR) mode set for the Junos Space Network Management Platform is:

  • Network as system of record (NSOR), then performing a resynchronization ensures that Junos Space automatically resynchronizes its configuration record to match the device configuration and sets the device configuration state to In Sync when the synchronization completes. For more details, see Resynchronizing Devices When Junos Space Is in NSOR Mode.
  • Junos Space as system of record (SSOR), then you must perform a resynchronization and accept the out-of-band changes. Both the Junos Space configuration record and the Network Director Build mode configuration are resynchronized to reflect the out-of-band configuration changes. For more details, see Resynchronizing Devices When Junos Space Is in SSOR Mode.

Procedure

To view the vMotion history:

  1. While in the Monitor mode, select a Virtual Network.
  2. Select the vMotion History tab.

    The vMotion History page appears. You can view the details shown in Table 337 in the vMotion History page.

    Time when the vMotion started.

    Completed On

    Time when the vMotion completed.

    Status

    Indicates the status of the vMotion.

    Source Switches

    Host name of the physical switch to which the host was connected before the vMotion.

    Source Switch Port

    Port on the source physical switch to which the host was connected.

    Destination Switches

    Host name of the physical switch to which the host is connected after the vMotion.

    Destination Switch Port

    Port on the destination physical switch to which the host is connected.

    Orchestration Job IDs
