Hello; When i try to migrate a Vm from Esxi to AHV with Move, the operation is being failed sometimes. Migration Status steps go well until last step "install device drivers". The error is this: "[b]Failed to execute guest command: 'msiexec.exe /i C:\Users\ADMINI~1\AppData\Local\Temp\vmware174\Nutanix-VirtIO-latest-stable.msi /quiet' ExitCode: '1603'.[/b]" My AOS version is 5.10.5. The OS is windows server 2016. I logged in with Built-in Administrator account and i installed VirtIO 1.1.4 manually. I can migrate some Server 2016 Vms but there is a problem about some Vms.
Hi; I have an ubuntu server on vmware and i want to migrate it to AHV with Move. when i type "uname -a" output is: [b]Linux TKMAPP1 4.2.0-42-generic #49~14.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Wed Jun 29 20:22:11 UTC 2016 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux[/b] when i type "grep -i virtio /boot/config-`uname -r`" output is: CONFIG_NET_9P_VIRTIO=m CONFIG_VIRTIO_BLK=y CONFIG_SCSI_VIRTIO=m CONFIG_VIRTIO_NET=y CONFIG_CAIF_VIRTIO=m CONFIG_VIRTIO_CONSOLE=y CONFIG_HW_RANDOM_VIRTIO=m CONFIG_DRM_VIRTIO_GPU=m CONFIG_VIRTIO=y # Virtio drivers CONFIG_VIRTIO_PCI=y CONFIG_VIRTIO_PCI_LEGACY=y CONFIG_VIRTIO_BALLOON=y CONFIG_VIRTIO_INPUT=m CONFIG_VIRTIO_MMIO=y CONFIG_VIRTIO_MMIO_CMDLINE_DEVICES=y As i see VirtIO drivers are installed. And then when i start to migrate on Move an error pop up is appears: [b]SCSI VirtIO device driver not found. Please download and install the appropriate device driver before retrying the migration.[/b] What can i do for this issue ?
Hello evryone, I want to migrate a Linux VM from VMWare ESXI infrastructure to AHV infrastructure. I use Xtract for do this. But when the plan is created afer a certain time the status plan becomes "failed" and I have this error message : "Internal target agent error '[Container="SMI_DS_NUTANIX_JAG_1", Err="exit status 32", Location="/root/workspace/xtract_vm_qcow2_builder_prod/go/src/tgtagent/ahvtargetprovider.go:985"] Container mount failed (error=0x4012)'" Thank you all for your answers Xtract version : 2.0.2 ESXI version : 5.5 AHV version : 20170830.185
I wanted to clarify if Xtract is just for converting from ESXi / Hyper-V /AWS to AHV or if ESXi to ESXi conversions are suppported with Xtract 2.0 / Move 3.0. We have about 100 VMs we'd like to move from one ESXi cluster to another ESXi cluster and I know we could use VM Converter or cross cluster vMotions (where supported) but wanted to see if the native Nutanix tools are also an option for this type of migration. I had thought it was mainly for migrations to AHV, has that changed?
We have a couple production SQL servers on our ESXi Cluster that need be transitioned to our new Nutanix Cluster. Nutanix Best Practices indicates that the SQL servers should be created new on the Nutanix Cluster instead of doing a VM move from ESXi to AHV. I am aware that Nutanix had Xtract Db for awhile that was supposed to make moving a SQL instance possible but they have since discontinued the product. I must assume they had issues with it. My question is what are the technical implications of using Nutanix Move to "move" the SQL VM from ESXi to AHV? I have used the tool to move a number of non-SQL VMs without any issues. Knowing that the underlying Hyper-visor components are changing and the VirtIO drivers must be installed before the move and then NGT installed after the move, what might the issue be that discourages or prevents a SQL VM cross-hyper-visor move? The SQL version is 2016 Standard with no mirroring or Always on Availability. Just standalone SQL. We hav
Good Day, I am new to Nutanix, so this may be a very simple question to answer. How do you move VMs on hyper-v 2008 to AHV. The AHV version is 20170830.270. I thought of Nutanix Move, but move does seem to support hyper-v 2008. Any guidance would be welcome, thank you.
Hello, I want to migrate vm from vmware vsphere 6.7 to AHV. When i create source and target i find that connections to vcenter and ahv are ok. But, number discovered vm's on vsphere is 0 and "create a migration plan" button is greyed out. What is a problem? xtract 2.0.2. Regards, Mindaugas
I am preparing to migrate several Windows Server VMs from VMware vSphere into Nutanix. Most of the VMs use physical RDM virtual hard disks which are unfortunately [url=https://portal.nutanix.com/#/page/docs/details?targetId=Xtract-for-VMs-v20:v20-xtract-unsupported-features-r.html]unsupported by Xtract[/url]. As I understand it, this leaves me with two options for migration: [b]Option 1: Convert RDM to VMDK[/b] Steps: [list=1] [*]Power off VMware VM [*]Convert each RDM virtual HDD to VMDK [*]Power on VMware VM [*]Begin Nutanix Xtract process [*]Schedule and perform Nutanix changeover [/list] [url=http://www.vmwarearena.com/convert-rdm-to-vmdk/]How to Convert RDM to VMDK - The Ultimate Guide[/url] With this option, Nutanix Xtract still automates and handles most of the the migration into the new environment, possibly reducing the chance for issues. However, I would need to plan for two potential downtime windows. [b]Option 2: Import Underlying VMDKs into Nuta
Hi everyone, I tried to setup lab for migrade UVM from ESXi 6.5 to AHV 5.10 using Xtract VM. After data seeding completed I select to cutover VM. However, migration was failed with error "Failed to create VM snapshot 'XTRACT-VMSnap-31'. Error: Snapshot hierarchy is too deep.." So, I've checked in snapshot manager and found many snapshot was create by Xtract tools. Does anyone face this issue before? How did you solve this problem? Thank you.

Derek Seaman blogged about the now renamed Move 3.0 on his site. [url=https://www.derekseaman.com/2019/03/nutanix-move-3-0-formerly-xtract-for-vms-now-ga.html]https://www.derekseaman.com/2019/03/nutanix-move-3-0-formerly-xtract-for-vms-now-ga.html[/url] Here is the crux...New to Move 3.0: [list] [*]Move services are now Dockerised and all Move and Move Agent Services now run as Docker Containers. Architecturally, this is an important milestone as we “servicify” move and provide the ability to add/update features without much service disruption as well as providing flexibility to run Move anywhere. [*]GA release of Hyper-V as a source, adding to source list of ESXi and AWS [*]1-click upgrade of Move. (Support for dark sites is coming) [*]Further enhancements to User Experience for Large VM migration with enhanced status updates on the UI [*]Support for a Mixed mode of Source VM setup by allowing for a mix of automatically prepared source VMs and manually prepared source V
I used an older version of Move back in September to migrate out ESXi VMs to AHV, and now with the GA release of Hyper-V with v3.0.2 I figured I'd give that a go. I just deployed 3.0.2 and attempted to add my Hyper-V box and it connects, however, it's not inventorying any VMs. I have 6 running VMs on this box so I'm not sure what the issue is. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!
I am looking for a solution to change the web GUI password of the user nutanix in Xtract 2.0.3. In the doc I only see how to change it during the first login. I have already opened a ticket with support. But there I was told to redeploy the Xtract VM to change the password. This is not really a solution for me to spend all the time again to have all configured just to have another password. Can someone help me with that?
Hi We're trying to move a couple of servers from AWS to out Nutanix cluster. I keep running into "access denied" to various resources on AWS when trying to add it as a source. What are the minimum permissions / role for the IAM account?? Does anyone have a custom policy in JSON format?? thanks
I tryed to run xtract but I'm facing a problem to install the VirtIO tools. Using the automatic script on xtract it's end with the error: "ExitCode: '1603'". If I try to install VirtIO manually the show this message "ended prematurely because of an error. Your system has not been modified". Creating a verbose log file, from the installation, I see some errors like this: MSI (c) (08:18) [22:06:00:591]: Package to be registered: 'Nutanix-VirtIO-1.1.3.msi' MSI (c) (08:18) [22:06:00:591]: Note: 1: 2205 2: 3: Error MSI (c) (08:18) [22:06:00:591]: Note: 1: 2262 2: AdminProperties 3: -2147287038 or Action start 22:06:00: PrepareDlg.
