23.0 Preparing for Migration of Windows Clusters

You can migrate Microsoft Windows Cluster business services to a target VMware vCenter container or to a physical machine. For information about supported Microsoft Windows Clusters, see Clusters in Section 2.1.1, Supported Source Workloads For Migration to Non-Cloud Platforms.

You can use PlateSpin Migrate Client or PlateSpin Migrate Web Interface to migrate Windows Clusters to VMware vCenter containers. You can also use PlateSpin Migrate Client to migrate Windows Clusters to physical machines. The prerequisites for migration are the same.

NOTE:The Windows cluster management software provides the failover and failback control for the resources running on its cluster nodes. This document refers to this action as a cluster node failover or a cluster node failback.
