H.8 PlateSpin OFX Controller Does Not Start on a Virtual Machine Source

Issue: If you configure Migrate to install the block-based component during the first replication, PlateSpin OFX Controller might not start on the source workload during the Install Block-Based Components step. The Service Manager reports this problem if the VM is running so slowly that the OFX Controller startup event times out.

Workaround: Manually start PlateSpin OFX Controller on the source workload. To avoid the problem, you can configure the workload to install the block-based component during Prepare Workload instead of First Replication, or you can increase the Memory and CPU resources of the source VM to improve its startup performance.
