There is no native to Nutanix method of converting an existing File Server in a customer infrastructure into a Nutanix Files server. The reasons are numerous and once you dive a little into the architecture of Nutanix Files they become apparent.


There is however a method of migrating existing data from a file server to Nutanix Files using third party tools like Robocopy, DatadobiMigrate and Peer Software to name a few.


At Nutanix we strive to make experience of using the platform as easy as possible hence we created Nutanix Files: SMB Migration Guide. This guide provides an overview of best practices and considerations when migrating from third-party platforms to Nutanix Files when using the SMB protocol. We also walk through an example of how to perform a migration. 


For more information please see Solutions Documentation section on the Nutanix portal. Note that you can filter the list by Solution Type at the top right corner.
