Platespin Migrate - P2P - iSCSI


I am planning on using Platespin Migrate to move several workloads (all
P2P) between DC's as part of a large scale consolidation project.

The question is around the target storage. I am forced to use HPE
Lefthand P4500 & StoreVirtual 4730 native iSCSI SAN arrays

I am struggling to find any specific mention of this protocol in the
documentation and need to understand if it is supported and if there
isany documentation to support this.

Thanks for reading

Basically, as long as the potential source workload (the server that will be migrated) can see the drive/volume as a local drive, then PlateSpin should be able to handle it.

Thank you for the response, but it looks like you have confirmed regarding the source array.

I really need to understand about the target array if iSCSI is supported on the physical target server

Thanks for looking

Hi,

Please add the drivers to the bootofx.x2p.iso which has been downloaded from the migrate product site (PhysicalTarget-12.2.zip).

Check from the site for updating the drivers for the specific hardware from Knowledge Base.

If you are able to see the drivers after discovering the physical target, then you will be able to migrate the workload.

Otherwise, please reachout to support to assist you with a valid NETIQ ID.
