Tuhocmang – Virtualization – Vmware Virtualization – How to migrate virtual machine (VM) from Promox to Vmware Vsphere
For some reasons, I had to migrate my VM which was running from Promox to Vmware Vsphere
I searched on google i find the easy way to migrate.
I read that article
But, finally i decided to choose StarWin V2V for migration
This Following is my whole process
I clone my VM. Promox support vmdk, so i chose vmdk format for Clone VM (you also choose QUME image format)
After clone process. i downloaded file vmdk from my Promox to my computer (i used FileZilla).
I upload it into vmware datastore (to run on VMware Vsphere)
I create a new Vm on VMware Vsphere with the same old Vm ‘s configuration. I added vmdk file (that i have just upload) to my VM
But, i got an error. That VMDK file is not compatible with Vmware Vsphere ?? (that is reason we should choose QUME image)
I used StarWin V2V to convert (link download: https://www.starwindsoftware.com/v2v-converter-download
Choose Local File
I added VMDK that i converted to VM (step 2)
You will receive error like that
“Cannot complete operation due to concurrent modification by another operation”
Just increase the size of VMDK
When i start new VM, i also got the error
Job for network.service failed. See "systemctl status network.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.
ExecStart=/etc/rc.d/init.d/network start (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE)
OK, i removed the virtual nic and added new virtual nic. Then i started VM again and reconfigure parameter on /etc/sysconfig/network-script/…
Done… I migrated VM from Proxmox to Vmware Vsphere
My article can’t help to decrease downtime… but it can help you migrate VM from Proxmox to Vmware Vsphere with no error
