Last week, We got the first Windows Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V Cluster up. Now, its the time for migrating some low priority payloads to test the performance and stability.
I used Shared nothing live migration on majority of the cases. I am happy to say that its a smooth and silent move.
Before starting shared nothing live migraiton
- Kerberos or Credential Security Support Provider (CredSSP) to authenticate the Live Migration is configured – Check this link.
- Network for Live Migration is configured and able to communicate
On Windows Server 2012 which is the source, Go to Failover Cluster Manager -> Cluster Name -> Networks
Right Click on Networks and Choose Live Migration setting.
- Ensure that the right network card is selected with right preference for Live migration
- The same setting needs to be checked on the Windows Server 2012 R2 cluster too.
- Ensure the communication between source server and destination server over the Live Migration network
- Remove the VM from cluster high availability is configured
- From Hyper-V Manager of source server, Right Click on the VM and choose Move
- In the Choose Move Type, Select “Move Virtual Machine”
