Customizable Post-Migration Routines

During remote migration (including compute migration), it is often necessary to reconfigure the new host operating system after migration cutover including network changes, user changes and other system setting changes. With this new feature, you can provide your own customized post-migration routine to your migration session. See
How to automatically reconfigure new host after remote migration? for more information.

VMware Compute Migration (CMC Helper 5.1.0+)

A number of new features have been added to Compute Migration with VMware.

Automatically suggest CPU Core / Socket Configuration based on source host configuration.
Compute migration's default destination virtual machine configuration will now take source host's physical and logical CPU configuration into consideration. It will correctly set the amount of CPU sockets and CPU cores in most common CPU architectures.

Ethernet adapter type / MAC address is now customizable.
When mapping source host's networks to new destination virtual machine's networks, you can now customize the virtual network adapter's type (e1000, e000e, vmxnet3, etc.) and the MAC address. This is desirable for use cases where the new VM's MAC address has to match the original source VM's.

Available on CMC Helper 5.1.0 and after
