Before you migrate, review the documentation and verify that you have the required software versions. Modify your existing NSX-V environment if needed, and deploy a new NSX environment.

Required Software and Versions

  • The version of Aria Automation that you are using must support this migration. Support for this migration is available starting in Aria Automation 8.3. For more information, see the Aria Automation documentation.

    In Aria Automation, the target NSX cloud account must be associated with NSX 3.1.1 or later.

Prepare Aria Automation Environment for Migration

Do the following tasks in Aria Automation to prepare for the migration:
  • Add a new target NSX cloud account in Aria Automation for the source NSX-V cloud account in your Aria Automation projects.
  • Create a migration plan to migrate from NSX-V to NSX. Complete the following four steps in the migration plan:
    • Step 1: Specify the source and target cloud accounts.
    • Step 2: Assess the NSX cloud accounts for migration readiness.
    • Step 3: Enter maintenance mode for the cloud accounts.
    • Step 4: Generate a deployment configuration file.

    For more information, see the Aria Automation documentation about migrating NSX-V to NSX.

The deployment configuration file in .json format becomes an input to the NSX migration coordinator.
