Hi,

The target platform needs to be etup in support of offline migration.

Please see the HPVM v6.5 Administrators guide, for detailed setup information and the hpvmmigrate command.

Re: VM/vPar offline Migration from one host to another

Thanks for the quick response

The below procedure i have used

1. Created passwordless communication between source host and target host

2. The VM in source host is stopped(for offline migration)

3.  I have used the below command to migarte VM1 from host1 to host2

hpvmmigrate -P VM1 -h host2

the below error i got

hpvmmigrate: Connected to target VSP using 'host2'
hpvmmigrate: ERROR (VM1): Remote message: Storage/Network device not available on target.
hpvmmigrate: ERROR (VM1): Remote message: Device /dev//vg_vol/rlvol_vm21 has no match on this VSP.
hpvmmigrate: ERROR (VM1): Remote message: Device /dev//vg_vol/rlvol_vm22 has no match on this VSP.
hpvmmigrate: ERROR (VM1): Remote message: Device /dev//vg_vol/rlvol_vm23 has no match on this VSP.

4. To overcome the above issue i have used below command

# hpvmmigrate -P VM1 -h host2 -C -m disk:avio_stor:disk:/dev/vg_vol/rlvol_vm21:disk:/dev/vg_vol/rlvol_vm22:disk:/dev/vg_vol/rlvol_vm23
hpvmmigrate: Connected to target VSP using 'host2'
hpvmmigrate: Unable to find device disk:avio_stor::disk:/dev/vg_vol/rlvol_vm21

Please guide me for proper Offline migartion.
