VMs migration from Dell cluster to Nutanix cluster


Badge +4
Hi,

We are in need to migrate VMs from Dell cluster to Nutanix cluster. Both are AHV based clusters.

What would be the best method to achive this?
1. Creating Protection Domain group and migrate OR
2. Adding Nutanix box to existing Dell cluster and migrate VMs.


Rgds,

Hi jitendra

We do not support mixing Dell XC and NX hardware in a single cluster (more details in the link below). Using a protection domain and performing a migrate would be the supported and preferred option.

Thanks,

Agree with Mike, create PD and replicate data to NX platform. This will be the easiest and cleanest way for migration
