    Confused about where to run the vCenter Migration Assistant

    vadm168 Novice

      I am testing vCenter migration from vCenter 6.0 on Windows Server 2008 R2 to VCSA 6.5. In the Migration Assistant, it says


      at the top: Make sure the Migration Assistant is running on the source.

      at the bottom: Do not run this installer from the source Windows Server.




      and https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-vSphere/6.0/com.vmware.vsphere.migration.doc/GUID-50A5705E-80E7-4305-BB43-B041D4B206E8…

      "You must Copy and run the VMware Migration Assistant on your source vCenter Server or vCenter Single Sign-On to prepare it for migration from Windows to an appliance."


      Should I launch the Migration Assistant from the source vCenter 6.0 or not?


      Please clarify. Thanks,
