Is it possible to relocate one of the virtual disks from one VM to another VM inside the AHV?
If it's possible, will I be able to perform the task inside the Prism or need to use command line to perform?

Also, will I be able to reuse the MAC address from a deleted VM to a new VM via Prism?

Thank you,

acli vm.list
* Get VM disk uuid
acli vm.get vmuuid
From the output find the "vmdisk_uuid" based on the index
* Find the complete disk path
nfs_ls -liaR [Run from any cvm, which will list out disk full path under container]
* Add an image with this disk [to be on safer side], copy from ADFS path
* Add this disk to VM
