VM Migration from vcenter 5.5 to 6.5

Hello Everyone,

I'm planning to migrate more than 2000 vms from vcenter 5.5 to 6.5 and I would to get some help here if it's possible to have a script

which.

Like first

Source :shutdown the vms, unregister and remove from inventory and not delete...

Destination : Register vm, add to inventory connect to network and schedule VM compatibility upgrade

Targeting the source/destination cluster or folder that contains vms, keep same vlan, determine the port group type (standard or distributed).

Destination part, before starting vms, connect network and if possible update

  • Active Connection to both Source and Destination vCenters
  • Source vCenter
  • VM
  • VM’s Network Adapter/s
  • Destination vCenter
  • Destination ESXi Host
  • Destination Datastore
  • Destination PortGroup/s

Many thanks

Patrick
