Step 2: Prepopulate a Container

Once the pre-migration Audit is complete, you can create a migration container and populate it with the application and its dependencies. V-Maestro will copy all dependencies into the container, such as user and group accounts and COM objects. Once this step is complete, V-Maestro will dock the container, which registers the container onto the operating system of the destination.

To Create and Prepopulate a Container

  1. In the Destination Details window, click the Actions icon at the top and select Prepopulate - Create a VAA.

  2. Click Continue to confirm. You can check Current Operation in the Migrations in-Progress card to see the status of the prepopulation process.
