I am moving virtual machines with Move 3.6.2 from Hyper-V to an AHV CE cluster. Everything goes well, but after the cutover the AHV VM is stuck at the ‘Press F2 for EFI boot manager’ screen and cpu usage around 52%. Pressing FN+F2, F2, CTRL+F2, ALT+F2 or other combinations have no effect. Please advise. Hyper-V host is Win2019, VM is 2019 with boot from bootmgfw.efi and secure boot disabled. Also tried with Edge, Chrome and IE, same result, stuck at ‘Press F2 for EFI boot manager’ screen.
These days I’m managing, for one of customer, the migration of its virtual infrastructure to a Nutanix AHV farm from an old ESXi. It has some old VMs, with Windows XP as guest OS, that have to be migrated in Nutanix. Those VMs have installed custom software that cannot be installed in newer versions of Windows because they have been written in old VB6, so my question are:Can they be migrated over AHV? If yes, can I manage the migration with Nutanix Move or there is another way?
When trying to move from esxi to AHV of a VM with OS Debian 10, I get an error This VM is not on the AHV supported OS list. To proceed with migrating this VM, please be sure to bypass guest operations and take care of installing AHV device drivers separately. This VM has a guest OS which is not supported on ESXi. Please remove the vm from the migration plan if migrating to ESXi. Is it OS not supported?
There are several ways to move a VM from one cluster to another.A. For moving a VM from Non-Nutanix cluster to Nutanix use Nutanix Move available on the PortalNutanix Move is a cross-hypervisor mobility solution to move VMs with minimal downtime.B. For Moving a VM from one Nutanix cluster to another use Asynchronous Disaster Recovery Between On Premise Data CentersSummary of stepsConfigure a Remote Site on Cluster A Create a Protection Domain on Cluster A. Add the VM to be moved to this Protection Domain. Power Off the VM Create a schedule for (N) hours temporarily and initiate a full replication. After replication is complete, restore the VM from snapshot on cluster B and power on the VM. Unprotect the VM from Protection Domain, Delete the schedule, snapshots and Protection Domain on cluster A.

I attempted several times to move a test VM over and I am running into a issue with the Mount Container process. Is there a fix for this. I suspect it to be an Firewall issue, Any help would be appreciated.Failed VM Migration: prepare target: [[Location="/hermes/go/src/tgtagent/ahvtargetprovider.go:567", Msg="Error creating target path [Container="default-container-90861820611740", Err="exit status 32", Location="/hermes/go/src/libcloud/prism/ahvmountimpl.go:146"] Container mount failed (error=0x4012)"] Target agent error (error=0x4003)]
Looking on OS supported to migrate with Nutanix Move v3.6.0 I see CentOS 8.2 as supported but when I add a CentOS 8.2.2004 VM to be migrated from ESXi 6.7u2 to AHV 20170830.434 I get this warning:This VM is not on the AHV supported OS list. To proceed with migrating this VM, please be sure to bypass guest operations and take care of installing AHV device drivers separately. This VM has a guest OS which is not supported on ESXi. Please remove the vm from the migration plan if migrating to ESXi.Is this expected?
We are transferring vdisks from one Nutanix environment to another. We are going from Euphrates 5.5.8 to Euphrates 5.9. The copy seems to work but then after a while (maybe 15 minutes) the files in the new environment disappear. We’ve tried this several times with the same results. One vDisk is around 26 GB and the other is 2 TB. Has anyone seen this and what is the problem and the solution?
Nutanix Move (a.k.a Move) is a cross-hypervisor mobility solution to move VMs with minimal downtime. Move supports migration from the following sources to targets, with first platform being the source and second platform being the target.VMware ESXi to Nutanix AHV VMware ESXi on legacy infrastructure to VMware ESXi on Nutanix Microsoft Hyper-V to Nutanix AHV AWS EC2 to Nutanix AHV AWS EC2 to VMware ESXi on Nutanix Nutanix AHV to AWS EC2Since infrastructure underneath platform is different, a small downtime is incurred during cutover from any of the preceding sources to targets.If this sounds Interesting, but you have a lot queries about this Amazing Solution i.e. NUTANIX MOVE.Relax…!!Here is link to answer most of your queries – Move FAQsFor more details refer to Move User Guide
Good afternoon, all!I’m setting up a Move project to migrate some VMs from Hyper-V to AHV. In the 3.6 Move user guide, it says “You need PowerShell version 4.0 or later.” Do we need it on each source VM, on the HV hosts, on the management workstation, or all three?Thanks to all for looking! Gregg
This video demonstrate how Nutanix Calm with the help of Nutanix Move can migrate workloads from the public cloud to on-prem as day-2 operations. This custom integration uses Move APIs to automate the entire process via Calm. Let the community know how you are using Nutanix Calm and Move. Share your thoughts in the forums.
We are excited to announce the release of Nutanix Move 3.6.0 Adopting new infrastructure platforms often requires organizations to migrate existing workloads against tight timelines. Nutanix Move simplifies this process with infrastructure-level bulk VM migrations, removing the friction associated with onboarding new infrastructure, and enabling businesses to quickly leverage the full potential of Nutanix Enterprise Cloud, with near-zero VM or application service outage during migrations. Nutanix Move 3.6.0 is released and the bits are available on the portal for download. Release Notes User Guide What's New in Release 3.6.0 Added Support for Nutanix Clusters on AWS - Move now supports migration to Nutanix Clusters on AWS. Added Support for SUSE 15 VMs - Move now supports migration of SUSE 15 VMs. Added Support for UEFI with Secure Boot for Hyper-V - Move now supports UEFI with secure boot for Hyper-V.

Hi folks, I have done a successfull VM migration using Nutanix Move 3.5.2 from ESXI 6.5 to AHV 20191030.415. All migration process is validated and fine, the VM can be migrated from ESXI to AHV but it failed when I try to boot in from AHV console as this picture :
Does anybody encountered this kind of error? when migrating ESXI to AOS. After how many hours of seeding, It show this error. However it is ready to cutover, but doesn’t want to proceed further because of this error. I already checked this VM in EsXi, it already have a VMware tools installed. Hope i can get ideas and recommendations from you guys. Thanks!
I hope this is an easy question. Am I allowed to increase the VCPU and memory resources on the Move VM/Docker without issues? I know hot-plug is disabled, so it’s in the reboot-world. I found that we are pegging the CPUs out when we are queueing migrations, so I want to try to get some more throughput on it to take advantage of our 25Gb infrastructure. Thanks
My migration team is doing a good job trying to push as many VM’s through Move to stage reboots after-hours. I’ve noticed that replication slows way down when we have about 15-20 VM’s waiting for cutover. I have checked the load on the Move VM and increased the amount of CPUs. Replication goes well (25Gbit network), but now we only have 2 seed streams going with 19 waiting to cutover. I have 4 other VM’s that are in the “seeding data” phase, but haven’t started their copies. Is this a bottleneck within the Move postgres database? Any ideas on how I can get more VM’s copying in parallel? Thanks,
We are excited to announce the release of Nutanix Move 3.5.0 Adopting new infrastructure platforms often requires a migration of pre-existing systems.
