OnCommand SHIFT in Parallel or Queues

[ Edited ]

I am looking at a project migrating 650+ VM's to HyperV.

 

Has anyone tried running SHIFT in parallel? Do I need another shift & ESX host to get this done, or just a unique volume?

Also -- trying to figure out how to queue up a number of machines to convert. Documentation discusses it, but am not finding how to do it.

 

Any help is appreciated!

You need another Shift server and another volume. Multiple Shift servers can share the same ESX host.

Convert-ShiftVirtualMachine cmdlet automatically queues up the jobs.

 

What is the version of OnCommand Shift that you are using? Also, please provide the info about the environment (ESX version, Hyper-V version, switch type on ESX side, ...).
