    2. (Optional) For a vCenter Server instance with an internal Platform Services Controller and a specified user, run the following command ./migrate-sppg -cmd check -vc FQDN_of_the_vCenter_Server -srm FQDN_of_Site_Recovery_Manager -u user_name@vsphere.local.
    3. (Optional) For a vCenter Server instance with an external Platform Services Controller, run the following command ./migrate-sppg -cmd check -vc FQDN_of_the_vCenter_Server -psc FQDN_of_Platform_Services_Controller -srm FQDN_of_Site_Recovery_Manager.
