Veeam Quick Migration with in-guest ISCSI

Post by cgall » Oct 15, 2014 5:09 pm

Hi,

I have some vms with in-guest iscsi. What is the best strategy to move these vms to a new environment (hosts and san) using quick migration?

Thanks,

Hello,

You can migrate these VMs as any other VM that are not using in-guest iSCSI volumes, given that new environment has network access to these iSCSI targets. Can you please tell me where these targets point to?

Thanks!

I would like to convert the iscsi to vmdk as part of the process if possible. Otherwise, I am assuming a v2v is the best option?

Veeam backup does not convert iSCSI disks to regular ones, so you should be using these recommendations instead > http://www.virtuallanger.com/2014/03/04 ... ive-vmdks/

If you want to backup these disks, then conversion will be required.
