PlateSpin Migrate 11.x
PlateSpin Migrate 12.x


PlateSpin Migrate is configured to use the automated or semi-automated Server Sync of Linux workloads to Virtual or Physical host.

The target is configured to boot with the Linux Ramdisk ISO (bootofx.x2p.iso / bootofx.uefi.iso). Migrate is configured to perform a unmap of the /home partition (under Volume Mapping, within the UI).
Target's /etc/fstab file after Server Sync, /home partition mounting line will be commented out as shown below:

/dev/sda1          /                             ext3         acl,user_xattr             1
#/dev/sda5            /home                ext3        acl,user_xattr        1 2
proc                 /proc                proc       defaults              0 0
sysfs                /sys                 sysfs      noauto                 0 0
debugfs            /sys/kernel/debug     debugfs    noauto                 0 0
devpts              /dev/pts             devpts     mode=0620,gid=5       0 0


1. Login into Target server
2. Edit /etc/fstab file after Server Sync
3. Un-comment the appropriate /home line
4. Save and restart the server once.


In the Migrate UI(under Volume Mapping), if the user unmaps /home partition, Migrate Server Sync job comments out the /home partition mounting line in /etc/fstab file.
