The VMs are esxi VMware. I’m not certain what the physical standalone
servers will be (raid 10 I know). I’m in a new job and simply
getting a head start on what needs to be done. A few of these
servers are OES and a few plain SLES 12 sp3. The SLES 12 servers are
not an upgrade from OES, I think.[/color]
That makes your migration much easier: you do not need to migrate the
services running on one server to a new server; you only need to move
your whole virtual machine(s) to a new host!
This forum, as you probably know, is for SLES install/boot issues. Do
you have any physical SLES boxes that you need to migrate?
As for VMware, what version of vSphere are you running and what version
Are you upgrading any of the VMware stuff or simply installing ESXi on
a new box(es) and migrating the VMs?
Can you describe a bit about what you are trying to accomplish and I’ll
offer some suggestions how you might proceed.
The transfer ID process from Netware to OES was so simple. Just
wondering if SUSE has something like this. Or how to exactly do it.
Any documents. I’m a bit rusty!! Forced to the other side for a few
years. So happy to be back here!![/color]
Transfer ID is a Novell process that allows you to transfer NetWare/OES
services from one server to a new server and make the new server appear
to be the old server. It greatly simplifies certain types of
migrations. It may still be useful.
If you are upgrading a VM’s OS from one major version to a new one, be
aware of this:
