vSwap, changing location ?

HendersonD

I have three ESX 3.5 hosts and for all of my VMs the vSwap file is stored with my virtual machine. I want to create a centralized datastore on a separate volume to house the vSwap files. Do I need to create 3 separate datastores to do this? In other words, do the vSwap files for each ESX host need to reside on separate datastores or can they reside on one datastore?

You can definitely do it with one datastore -- either VMFS or NFS. See page 66 of TR-3428 for more details.
