Schedule quick migration time?

Veeam Logoby therealdj » Tue Sep 13, 2016 9:56 pm

We are currently in the process of migrating all of our VM's to new hardware / VCentre, after lots of discussions internally about adding the old hosts to the new vcentre, I noticed the quick migration function in Veeam. It appears to do exactly what we want and we have already migrated a few test servers.
There is one tiny problem though, we are going to be migrating a few servers that are really large and have a number of manual things that need running after a reboot.
From the test migrations we have done there seems to be no way to schedule the final cut over, so I cant tell our application teams exactly when its going to happen.
Is there an easy way to schedule the final cut over? or am i better looking into the full blown replication options rather than the quick migrate?

Hello Dave,
Quick migration can`t be scheduled in UI, however you can start it with Powershell which can be scheduled with Windows scheduler.
Replication job with permanent failover indeed is another option.

The replication coupled with planned failover seems to be the best option. Planned failover would guarantee that both VMs are in complete sync, and none of the changes are missing. Thanks.
