    I can’t wait to have a trial NSX copy to perform all the steps you described so well!

    Just finished a 2 day NSX class at EMC Office in Conshohoken PA, great potential for this.

    For one of my clusters, We attempted and uninstall that just hangs at the sand clock, been like that for days. Not sure if the uninstall completed or now. Maybe this is a cosmetic bug that will disappear if I reboot vCenter (which is not something I want to do). In this state, I can’t re-install either, any ideas anyone?

    Hmmm, must be some persistent stale data somewhere. I bounced the NSX manager, restarted vmware-client on the VCA and migrated all VMs in that cluster and did a rolling restart of each esx host, then restarted NSX Manager and vmware-client process a second time, but the uninstalling status still exists 🙁
    Any other ideas anyone?

    Speaking about VM migration (seeCluster Installation) I don’t think it can be moved away from the cluster since it uses a logical switch port, am I wrong?

    Great to see that you can do it without putting the VM in maintenance mode. Thanks you for the article.
