XenDesktop Farm Migration Utility Update – Version 1.3

Following on from our SYN209 session at Synergy this year, I have been releasing a series tools that can assist with migrating to Citrix Cloud. Today, I am releasing version 1.3.0 of the XenDesktop Farm Migration Tool which now has support for Citrix Cloud. The migration functionality of the tool can now migrate a VM from a On-Prem farm to Citrix Cloud. The disaster functionality of the tool now also support Citrix Cloud for both the backup and restore capabilities. You can check out the user guide for the tool for full details of the new features and to download the new version. I got some great feedback from people after the session and that is greatly appreciated. There are a bunch of requests for new features that I am working on. These include:

  • Citrix Cloud to Citrix Cloud migration support.
  • Support for VM tags.
  • An option to not delete the VM from the source farm during the migration process.

These will all be coming in the next version. As always, any questions, suggestions or problems, please contact me.

    Hi , 1st of all congrats for the good tool 🙂
    Then i have issues with changing the DDCs, in a complex ent environment like the one i work on it is impossible to change the registry via this tool, my adm account has no rights by default to change the registry key
    What account is the tool using to change the list of DDCs ?

    Another thing : the MC and DG box is too short for me as i have very complex naming convention and i cannot see the full names, can you make it a bit bigger ?



    • Shane O'Neill says:

      The account running the tool need to be an administrator on the VM’s being migrated with permissions to edit the registry.

      I can look at making those bigger on the next version.

    Will this moved MC and DG as well? Or does that need to be staged ahead of time?
