Move CV to another server (VMware)


Move CV to another server (VMware)



I need to move Commando View to a new server, but I didn't succeed. During installation I got an error with "PA server could not start", after installation I logged in to CV but nothing was there and I didn't got any "do you want to manage this Storage". Do you have any suggestions? What's best practise from HP for move CV to a new server?


I have CV 10.2 and EVA6300

So the installation went without problems and you were able to logon. Is the new server zoned to the array?

Hope this helps!

No after several hours the installation fails and I got the message "PA server could not start".


The server should be zoned yes. I was able to add Vdisk to the ESX host so the zone should be OK. I have add a SCSI adapter to guest OS and I did choose Raid-HP as mentioned in the installation guide.

hi again!


now I finally got the installation through but CV is now show a warning about license but I have my licenses installed. I guess I now got a 60-day "full license". it there a way to remove or ignore that?
