best option is to replicate the data by using continuous access. refer below link

I think below is the license for data migration on eva8K

Electronic Delivery LTU HP Data Migration EVA8000 Series 90 Day Software E-Delivery LTU T5330AAE

Hello,

if you don't need support, try the instant-on licenses which are delivered with Command View EVA.

"if you don't need support, try the instant-on licenses which are delivered with Command View EVA."

Assuming Command View is already installed and has been active for some time... the Instant-on License is probably expired.

What version of Command View are you running?

If time/resources allow, you could use it as a chance to run a backup/restore exercise.

Sure the license could be expired, but if not BC or CA license is issued, it should be possible to re-install CV to get the instant-on licenses running.

Or as Uwe said: Backup and restore.

Hello All,
and thank you for the fast responses.
I'm using CommandView EVA 8.0 and the controllers are HSV210-B.
yes Backup/Restore is an option but last one.
I have Business Copy unlimited LTU loaded but no CA. do you mean, i can delete the BC and commandview licenses, reinstall commandview EVA, and then use the trial license to do migration of data?
i found this part number: TA664A. i see its an option for CA. can it be used alone without CA licenses?

Hi Patrick,
Hope you doing well.

"Sure the license could be expired, but if not BC or CA license is issued, it should be possible to re-install CV to get the instant-on licenses running."

How can I get back the instant-on licenses again? I uninstall and install the CV and I didn't get any 60Days tryial for BC or CA.

You can't. You'd have to wipe the server clean.. or use a different server that does not have CV on it.
