6.0 Discovering Workloads and Targets

For any migration job, you must have a discovered source and a discovered target. A discovery operation populates the PlateSpin Migrate database with detailed inventory information about a machine. This information provides the data necessary to determine the machine’s use and to properly configure a migration job.

NOTE:All the workloads and the targets that you discover using the PlateSpin Migrate Web Interface are listed in the PlateSpin Migrate Client also. However, if you discover workloads and targets through the PlateSpin Migrate Client, then only the workloads and targets that you discover in the default network displays on the PlateSpin Migrate Web Interface.
