If I want to migrate Linux (Centos,RHEL,Ubuntu/SUSE) Vms from VMware to AHV using Nutanix move then is below information enough.

Below are the configuration settings to look out for when migrating a Linux VM using credentials. 

  • Ensure ssh localhost using only password authentication, ie. set “PasswordAuthentication yes” in sshd_config
  • Ensure using sudo, user assume root privileges without entering a password
  • Ensure read and write permission for /tmp.
  • root access, sshd service running 

If this is correct then I can normally migrate the Linux VMs same as I migrated the Windows VM?

Hi @Ranu 

Provided that guest operating systems and UEFI fall within the supported range and outside of the limitations, you should be able to perform the migration.

If you have any doubts you can always do a test on a clone of one of the VMs or on a freshly deployed Linux VM.
