    Note: For migrating from vSS to vDS you should have network connectivity to both switches (Uplink assigned) with same or relevant VLANs trunked through.

    To migrate the service console:
    Click Host > Configuration > Networking.

    Note: This is not a cluster-wide option.

    Click the Distributed Virtual Switch view.
    Click Manage Virtual Adapters.
    Click Add.
    Select Migrate existing virtual network adapters.
    Click Next.
    Select the adapters you want to migrate.
    Select the dvPortGroup to migrate to from the dropdown.
    Click Next and Finish.

    Note: For each selected adapter, specify which dvPortgroup you want to connect it to. The migration does not interrupt traffic. For example, vCenter does not show the ESX as disconnected even if you migrate its only vswif interface.
