The breakpoints feature allows the user to skip or execute any specific workflows. This allows for more flexible migration scenarios where for example bridging is not necessary or vApp migration is performed in other ways or allows for more controlled step-by-step execution of the entire migration process.
The workflows can be executed in the sequence mentioned in the following table:
|topology||Mandatory||Preparation of target organization VDC, edge gateways, organization VDC networks, etc.|
|bridging||Optional||L2 bridging configuration between source and target organization VDC networks.|
|services||Optional||N/S switch over and configuration of networking services.|
|movevapp||Optional||Workload vApp/VM Migration.|
Skip feature allows to skip one or more workflows (usage: '
-s' or '
||It skips the bridging and executes the remaining workflow's topology, services, and movevApp.|
||It skips the services and movevapp workflows. It will execute the topology and bridging.|
This feature allows the user to execute only the specified workflow (Usage: '
-e' or '
||It will execute only the topology replication workflow.|
||It will execute the topology replication, L2 bridging, and service configuration workflow.|
The workflow for Topology Replication (topology) will be mandatorily executed even if not specified in the command.
