This topic describes how to migrate Windows VMs to GKE with Migrate for Anthos. To perform the migration, you use a processing cluster you created with the steps in Installing Migrate for Anthos.
The steps to migrate with Migrate for Anthos:
Start a migration by configuring a source, which specifies your migration source along with information that Migrate for Anthos uses to locate the VM you're migrating. If you already have a source from a previous migration and the VMs you're migrating are from the same source, you can re-use it.
Create a migration plan by specifying the source you created, the VM you want to migrate, and the migration intent.
Customize the migration plan you generated when you created a migration.
Having created a migration, you execute the migration to extract the container artifacts, which includes the Dockerfile and other files necessary to build a container image.
migctltool to view the progress of a migration and inspect migration activity logs.
Use the generated artifacts to build a Windows container that you can then deploy to a cluster.
