Our PC (we only have the one pc.2022.6) is currently hosted on an ESXi cluster, we also have 2 Nutanix clusters running ESXi as the hypervisor.  I’m looking at moving PC to one of the 2 Nutanix clusters, as the host that PC is currently sitting on will be retired soon.  What's the best way to go about this?

Are the clusters in the same vCenter? If so:

  1. Find the virtual machine in the vSphere Client.
  2. Right-click on the virtual machine and select Move To....
  3. Select a cluster.
  4. Click OK.

yes it is managed by the same vCenter. Basically we have 3 clusters.

one vSphere cluster which hosts Prism central and vCentre and two nutanix clusters hosting everyting else.

do I need to register the host cluster with PC once its moved to one of the nutanix clusters?

You don’t need to register all clusters in PC. As long as they are all managed by the same vCenter, you can simply migrate the PC VM from A to B using your vSphere Client.

If both Nutanix Cluster are registered under same VCenter, you can just move Nutanix PC VM from one cluster to other with vmotion with Storage and Compute option. 

Re-registration is not required.
