In last blog we learned type of migration we have in HCX. Today we will come to know about the steps involved during migrating virtual machine from on premises to cloud
You need to log in to on premises virtual center , Go to home page and click HCX
Go to migration tab in right pane and click migrate virtual machine
On left hand side you will see the data center details of your on premises virtual center. Select the cluster from where you want to migrate the virtual machine. On right hand side you will find the name of the virtual machine from that cluster
Select the virtual machine which you want to migrate to cloud. You also need to define the migration option shown in below screen shot. You have to specify the destination cluster, destination datstore , Type of disk provision and most important is type of migration (vmotion or bulk migration) and select or verify the correct VXLAN where you want to place your machine. Once you define all option click next.
Verify the values and click finish to start migration. We have select vMotion so it will the live migration. If you select the bulk migration please speci fy the cut over time else machine will be fail over immediately after replication.
Monitor the task till it gets complete.
