    :) Not trying to solve anything with vMotion, just trying to live with it or get agreement or statement that it’s not recommended.

    My group owns the VMs running in the virtualized environment. We do NOT however own/operate the virtualized environment; ie VMWare vSphere. It is those owners/operators that maintain all VMs should be able to continue operation whenever they vMotion VMs (because of environment loading, provisioning activities or otherwise) or perform snapshots.

    I am with the position that that is not reasonable for vADCs and need to operate without VM stuns by the hypervisor.

    Thanks, that’s what I was thinking as well. I’m getting push back from our VMWare owner/operators on this. Is there an official recommendation from A10? You’re probably from A10 I realize…

    As I indicated we come from heavy physical ADC shop so the topology of dual ADCs is an easy concept to go forward in a virtual environment. I’m wondering now if a single vADC that is monitored by VMWare wouldn’t be worth exploring. I don’t know if the VMTools are required or if they’re even supported or can be installed in the underlying OS. I’m getting off subject here. Just thinking out loud.

    Thank you.

    I should clarify. I’m speaking more to the stun process/event that occurs with both vmotion and any snapshot of the VM.

    Yes the SCP password. That method does work. I was not aware password could be passed that way. Docs don’t reference that nor command line help:

    use-mgmt-port Use management port as source port
    tftp: Remote file path of tftp: file system(Format: tftp://host/file)
    ftp: Remote file path of ftp: file system(Format: ftp://%5Buser@%5Dhost%5B:port%5D/file)
    scp: Remote file path of scp: file system(Format: scp://[user@]host/file)
    sftp: Remote file path of sftp: file system(Format: sftp://[user@]host/file)

    That’s not part of ssh typically. How’d you know of that feature?

    It is a bit odd that the scp password attribute exists for import but does not for export. I can work with what you’ve supplied.

    Thank you again HelpingHand.

    Awesome, that was it. Thank you.

    I guess need to think a little more “command line”-ish
