The procedure of migrating an external vRealize Orchestrator instance to a vRealize Orchestrator instance embedded in vRealize Automation varies depending on the setup that you have. Several migration scenarios exist based on whether the external Orchestrator server is Windows-based or a virtual appliance, using the embedded database or an external one, and other conditions. You can combine the migration process with an upgrade of vRealize Orchestrator, vRealize Automation, or both. In this case, the migration procedure depends on the source versions of the products.
