You can move a vCenter Server from one vSphere domain to another vSphere domain. Services such as tagging and licensing are retained and migrated to the new domain.
The following use cases are supported:
- You can migrate a vCenter Server from an existing domain to an another existing domain with or without replication. The migrated vCenter Server moves from its current Single Sign-On domain and joins the other existing domain as another vCenter Server connected via enhanced linked mode.
- See Repoint a Single vCenter Server Node from One Domain to an Existing Domain for instructions on repointing a single embedded node from one domain to an existing domain without a replication partner.
- See Repoint a vCenter Server Node from One Domain to an Existing Domain with a Replication Partner for instructions on repointing an embedded node from one domain to an existing domain using replication.
- You can migrate a vCenter Server from an existing domain to a newly created domain (where the migrated vCenter Server is the first instance). See Repoint a vCenter Server Node to a New Domain for instructions of this type of repointing. In this case, there is no replication partner.
