The feature allows migrating virtual machine network adapters from one virtual network (port group) to another.

Migration between networks of the following switch types are supported for the current release:
  • vSphere Standard Switch (VSS)
  • vSphere Distributed Switch (VDS)
  • NSX-V Switch
Note: The network migration is an advanced function and it is considered unsafe. It requires some basic knowledge about networks and awareness about networks that exist in the environment. Migrating a virtual machine to wrong networks can result in loss of connectivity and eventually influence business applications running on the VM. Therefoere, the feature is turned off by default.
