Migration via SolusVM interface


Important notes

  • It is not possible to migrate OpenVZ container from SolusVM Master node using SolusVM interface. For such migration - proceed to Manual migration for OpenVZ containers.

  • Due to differences between OpenVZ 6 and OpenVZ 7 - it is not possible to migrate from OpenVZ 7 node to OpenVZ 6 node.


In order to migrate a VPS (does not matter what virtualization) from one SolusVM slave node to other:

1. Open SolusVM > Virtual Servers > VPS_for_migration > Migrate.

2. Select the necessary configuration:
Migration1
where:
Destination node - the node where VPS should be migrated
Migrate Data - If "Yes" is selected - VPS will be migrated to another node. and location of the VPS will be changed to the new node in SolusVM interface.
If "No" is selected - VPS will not be migrated - its location will change to the new node in SolusVM interface only.
Compression - enabled compression for transferring VPS data.
Transfer Speed - limits network speed used for migration.
Transfer over Internal Network - enables transfer between nodes using an internal network. Both nodes have to have an internal IP address configured in node settings.
Automate on Success - if set to Yes - VPS on the source node is automatically deleted. 

3. Click on Start.

4. Wait until the migration is finished.

5. Select what should be done at the end of the migration:
Migration2


It is recommended to verify that migration is successful and select the corresponding option before finishing migration.


6. Click Confirm.
