Migrating a Windows VM
This topic describes how to migrate Windows VMs to GKE with Migrate for Anthos and GKE.
To perform the migration, you use a processing cluster you created with the
Installing Migrate for Anthos and GKE.
The steps to migrate with Migrate for Anthos and GKE:
Add a migration source.
You start a migration by configuring a source that represents the source platform
from which you are 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.
Note: Windows migration only supports Compute Engine as a source.
However, you can use Migrate for Compute Engine
to migrate or clone a Windows VM from other sources into Compute Engine,
and then migrate the resulting VM.
The migrated Windows VM does not have to be configured to run on Compute Engine.
Create a migration plan.
Create the migration plan that you then review and customize before executing the migration.
Customize your migration plan.
Edit the migration plan for your specific requirements before executing the migration.
Execute the migration.
Execute the migration to extract the container artifacts,
which include the Dockerfile and other files necessary to build a container image.
Monitor the migration.
Monitor the progress of a migration and inspect migration activity logs.
Build a Windows container image
Use the generated artifacts to build a Windows container that you can then deploy
to a cluster.
