Hyper-V 2008 Cluster Migration to another domain


  • hello,

    I am planning to migrate Windows Server 2008 Ent. Hyper-v Cluster (2 node Cluster) to another domain.

    Disk configuration is SAN Storage (individual lun for VM) no CSV or anything. 

    As per research on Net there is long process but can i do it using ADMT tool?

    In Lab i tried and it's working without any issue using ADMT tool

    before i do it production is it okay to do it using ADMT?

    Also, will MS professional support team can help to do migration if ADMT is not right way?

    Yes, but it is a for-fee service.

    If you have successfully performed the operation in a lab, you should be able to do the same in production.

    A better route would be to create a new cluster in the new domain using later software, at least 2012 R2 - better yet 2016, to get the best software.  Then move the VMs, either by moving simply moving the SAN storage or copying to a new configuration. Moving to CSV would also give you more flexibility with less management overhead than individual LUNs per VM.

  • hello, just wondering, what were the steps taken to do this?  What options did you select when translating profiles and computer options?

    I assume you powered off all vms, then migrated one host at a time, then brought them all online?
