Active source support

XCP does not support the use of a baseline or an incremental Snapshot copy followed by live source migration for an incremental sync.

The following common features are not available for XCP NFS and SMB:

  • XCP multiple instances on same host: When running multiple instances of XCP on the same host you might get unpredictable results.

  • Time to complete migration: XCP upfront does not provide the time to complete the migration or the time to complete any command used for migration. If you are doing final cutover confirm that data churn on the source volume is low.

  • Running copy again on an uncleaned target: XCP baseline copy will fail when there is partial data on the destination target. For a successful XCP baseline copy and XCP verify, the destination must be clean.

  • Live destination: XCP does not support modifying data on the destination volume during a migration or during an incremental sync.
