Table of Contents


The Source Agent installers and the destination installers are part of the V-Maestro installation package. The destination installers are located in the VirtaMove installation location in the Extras folder:  

C:\Program files\Virtamove\Extras\DestinationInstallers\

The source installer packages are located as follows:

Port 443 (https) is used to communicate with the V-Maestro web interface from the outside. Make sure that the port is allowed through the firewall.


The following diagram illustrates all the ports required for Source Agents and V-Maestro.

To Install V-Maestro


  • The security key that you generate or select during installation is the master SSL key that V-Maestro uses to securely communicate with ALL VirtaMove Source Agents. See About SSL Keys for more information.

  • Port 9665 must be open to connect to the VirtaMove Source Agent on the source machine. Make sure that the port is allowed through the firewall.


  • Completing the installation might take some time if V-Maestro must also install .NET Framework 3.5 during the installation process.

  • You can verify the integrity of your downloaded software by checking the MD5. See here for more details.
