NO VMworld for me… but a question for you

Unfortunately I had to cancel my VMworld 2014 participation and all appointments I made 10 days before VMworld 2014 starts. The current project I am working on has reached a critical stage and I cannot be missed on site. Bummer. Anyway, here is a list of the sessions I chose and I would like to use this blog to ask you all a question I had reserved for the VMware consultants at the expo.

VMworld 2014 US sessions:

MGT2175 vCloud Automation Center Overview and Glimpse into the Future

As you can see, most sessions I wanted to take are around vCAC and NSX, topics very real for my current assignment so I will miss the info dearly. Of course There were some some parties in my schedule too, ideal places to do some innocent networking, like VMunderground, the PernixData party, the Tegile party, the Nutanix party, the Veeam party, the vExpert/VCDX party and the VMworld party with the Black Keys which I all have to miss. Fortunately one of my colleagues and fellow vExpert will pick up my vExpert gifts, I hope he’ll reserve some space in his suitcase for me.

The big question:

So, now to the question I wanted to raise at VMworld, and I hope you can shed some light on this: When migrating a vCloud Automation Center 6.x environment from a single tier setup to a distributed setup, can I move the PostgreSQL database to the new PostgreSQL database cluster without losing my existing tenant? The idea is that we move it after building the distributed setup (hopefully vCAC 6.1 will be available by that time), but before we create new tenants and/or workflows. Please use the form below, I hope you can help me out, many thanks in advance.
