Migrate static desktops to different Enterprise Manager in Horizon DaaS 6.1

I recently had to do a clean upgrade of our VMware Horizon Daas environment from 6.0 to 6.1.  I chose to go with the clean install at this point because when we first installed the product back when it was Desktone, there were a lot of tweaks done to the database by Dektone engineers to get it to work the way we wanted it to. Every time I did an upgrade from Desktone and eventually VMware it broke our production systems due to the tweaks they had done.  I was tired of going through that so now I have a nice clean install ready to put into production. I found out with a quick e-mail how to easily get the static desktops that were in the old Emterprise manager’s of our tenants into the new EM’s.

1. Assign DaaSold hosts and clusters to DaaSnew Desktop Manager
2. vmotion desktops over to DaaSnew hosts / clusters
3. Remove/unassign DaaSold hosts and clusters

Note: The desktops will be in the Imported Desktops pool they will just need to be moved to the pool of your choice in the new EM.

It was that easy and it worked!! Thanks Luke at VMware for that quick solution.
