Cluster Migration Wizard Error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi guys,

    I'm trying to migrate an application from W2K3 cluster to W2K8R2 cluster using More Actions -> Migrate Services and Applications function. But after I enter W2K3 cluster name and click Next button I get the error: Migration Wizard only supports migration from W2K3, W2K8 and W2K8R2.

    But my old cluster is W2K3! What is the cause of this error?

  • So, the solution for my situation was to install last updates on my old cluster nodes, after that Wizard moved to the next step with a list of roles possible to migrate.

    As I told earlier roles I want to migrate are not considered at this step.

    Thank you for links, but I already read them. I'm acting the 1st method you refered and use this guide (https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff182337%28v=ws.10%29.aspx#BKMK_Steps_for_migrating). The error I described occurs between steps 9 & 10.

  • Alex, It's no matter what role I'm trying to migrate, because role selection is the next step after the Wizard being connected to the old cluster.
