You can prepare and migrate VMs by using Move once the Move VM is deployed successfully. The steps involved during the entire migration process are as follows:

  1. Log on to the Move UI.

  2. Add environments for migration.
    For more information, refer to Adding Environment section for specific environments.

  3. Create a migration plan.
    For more information, refer to Creating Migration Plan section for the specific source and target.

  4. Prepare VMs automatically or manually.
    For more information, refer to Preparing VMs Manually and Preparing VMs Automatically section for the specific source and target.

  5. Perform test migration or cutover for migration in target environment.
    For more information, refer to Creating a Test Capable Migration Plan or Performing Cutover section for the specific source and target.

  6. Manage migration plans.
    For more information, refer to Environments and Migration Plan Management.

Note: Before you migrate VMs, Move does not detect whether the source VMs have security constructs or policies (such as vTPM, BitLocker, or encrypted vDisks) enabled on those VMs. During the creation of a VM on the target hypervisor (AHV), Move does not apply any security constructs or policies. Therefore, Move does not warrant the integrity of such VMs if you decide to migrate them.
