Migrate a VSI between dedicated hosts
Migrate a Dedicated Host instance to another Dedicated Host. You can migrate your dedicated host instances from one host to another within the same POD.

The first thing you need to get is a list of the Dedicated Hosts on your account. To list the Dedicated Hosts on your account you can use the following code:

import SoftLayer
from pprint import pprint as pp

client = SoftLayer.Client()

dedicatedHosts = client['SoftLayer_Account'].getDedicatedHosts()
pp(dedicatedHosts)

Once you have the Dedicated Host ID you want to migrate the Virtual Guest to you can use this script to kick of an immediate migration of the Virtual Guest.

import SoftLayer
from pprint import pprint as pp

destinationHostId = 987654
vsiId = 1234567
client = SoftLayer.Client()

migrateGuest = client['SoftLayer_Virtual_Guest'].migrateDedicatedHost(destinationHostId, id=vsiId)
