This guide will demonstrate how to migrate a set of machines to AWS using CloudEndure. After an installation token has been provided, the CloudEndure agent can be downloaded and installed from the Cloudamize application. Machines which are candidates for migration to AWS will then be available in the CloudEndure dashboard.
Alternatively the Cloudamize migration report can be downloaded and used to create a CloudEndure migration blueprint.
Follow the steps below to begin.
Navigate to the Migrate Your Environment page
Launch the application to view the results summary page. From here, click View Details.
From the results dashboard, click Dashboard -> Migration Planner.
Select CloudEndure at the top left of the Migrate Your Environment window. Select a design to use for the migration. Then select the groups to migrate and click Apply. In the table below, select which machines to migrate.
Note: Cloudamize does not ensure that the CloudEndure agent prerequisites are met. In cases where installation via the console cannot be completed please follow the Cloud Endure installation instructions for a command line based installation.
To install via the Cloudamize Console
Click on Installation Options to enter the Installation Token for CloudEndure. Then click Install to install the CloudEndure agent and begin the migration process.
You can find your CloudEndure installation token in your CloudEndure account under Help - How to Add Machines
In the far right column for each machine, click on the log icon to view a detailed log for that machine.
To Install via Command Line
You can also install the CloudEndure agent through the command line interface. You can find your installation command under How to Add Machines in your CloudEndure dashboard.
You can find further CloudEndure installation guides here.
The CloudEndure agent will take approximately 10-15 minutes to download and install. Afterwards, the machine will be added to the CloudEndure database, and the installation will complete.
Using CloudEndure Migration Factory
It is also possible to use the migration plan as a starting point for CloudEndure Migration Factory blueprints.
To begin, simply download the migration plan and edit the downloaded CSV file to match the CloudEndure blueprint specification.
* Please note that machines using our agentless data collection option will not be able to be migrated via CloudEndure.
