Deploying the Move Agent on Hyper-V Host

You can manually or automatically deploy the Move agent on the source Hyper-V host.

Manual Deployment

To download and install the Move agent on each of the source Hyper-V host machine to support VM discovery and migrations, do the following:

  1. In the Hyper-V host, download move-agent-installer.exe from http://<nutanix-move-ip>/downloads/agents/move-agent-installer.exe .

    Replace <nutanix-move-ip> with the IP address of the Move VM.

  2. Go to the location where you have downloaded the agent, and copy or move the downloaded file under C:\users\Administrator.
  3. Launch the command prompt with Run as Administrator to run the following command from C:\users\Administrator.
    move-agent-installer.exe -o [operation] -ip [move ip] -u [user]

    Example: move-agent-installer.exe -o install -ip -u user

    User can be either a domain or local user with administrator privileges.

  • By default, the Move agent is installed in the user directory. If you want to change the location, use the -d option.
  • To uninstall the Move agent, use the command move-agent-installer.exe -o remove.
  • Enter help along with any command for information to display options for that command.
  • Move agent service installation will add inbound firewall rule to open port 8087, which is required for Move VM and Hyper-V interactions. The Move Hyper-V agent service running on Hyper-V uses the 8087 port for interactions with Move. This service requires only the 8087 port and you cannot customize this service to use any other port.
  • Ensure that the service manager console is not opened during installation or removal of the Move agent.
