    At the Ready step of the wizard, you actions differ depending on the method you have chosen to use for migration.

    If VMware vMotion is used for migration, review details and click Finish. In this case, all existing jobs to which the source VM is added will switch to the migrated VM. The backup chain will be continued, thus, the next job session for the VM will be incremental.

    If Veeam Quick Migration is used, you must also choose whether you want to delete files of the VM for which the migration was launched after Veeam Backup & Replication receives a heartbeat signal from the VM on the target host (migrated VM):

    • If you want to delete the VM for which the migration was launched, leave the Delete source VM files upon successful migration check box selected. All jobs to which the VM is added will switch to the migrated VM. The backup chain will be continued, thus, the next job session for the VM will be incremental.

    If the heartbeat signal is not received from the migrated VM, the source VM will not be deleted and the migrated VM will not be added to any jobs. To protect the VM, you must add it to a backup job manually.

    • If you want to leave the VM for which the migration was launched, clear the selection of the Delete source VM files upon successful migration check box. In this case, the VM will not be deleted. All jobs to which the VM is added will continue to process this VM. To protect the migrated VM, you must add it to a backup job manually.

    Note

    The Delete source VM files upon successful migration option applies if the following conditions are met:

    • VMware vMotion is not used.
    • VMs are powered on before migration.
    • VMware Tools are installed on VMs.
