After a successful cutover, PlateSpin Migrate shuts down or starts the source workload and target workload, depending on the nature of the migration. For example, if the migration goal is to copy the workload, you might want both the source and target workload to be running after cutover. If you are moving a workload, you might want to stop the source workload after cutover and leave the target workload running.
To specify non-default post-cutover end states for your source and target:
In the Jobs view, select the required workload.
In the Job Configuration section of the Migration Job window, click
Configure the appropriate settings:
Source Machine End State: Specify whether to shut down the source workload after a successful cutover. For a workload move, the shut down is selected by default.
Target Machine End State: Specify whether to power on, power off, or suspend the target workload after a successful cutover.
To specify post-cutover end states for the source and target workloads after a cutover with replication:
On the Workloads page, select the prepared workload that you want to migrate.
On the Workload Commands page, specify the full or incremental replication method.
For Post-Replication Cutover, enable.
Specify the appropriate run state for the source and target workload by enabling or disabling the following settings:
Shut down source after cutover
Shut down target after cutover
PlateSpin Migrate starts the replication for the workload, executes the cutover, then shuts down the source or target as configured.
NOTE:For workloads in the cloud, the end-state shutdown stops the VM and deallocates its resources.
