PERC H700/H800 boot virtual disk migration from a different controller is not supported


Issue

If migrating a boot volume the only supported move is from a PERC H700 to a PERC H700 or from a PERC H800 to a PERC H800. The PERC H700/H800 supports migration of virtual disks created with PERC H200, PERC6 and other PERC H700/H800 controllers for non-bootable virtual disks.

It is possible to migrate a boot volume from a different controller, PERC6 or PERC H200, to a PERC H700/H800 if it will be used to access the data only and not to boot from it. Migrating this volume back to the original PERC6 or PERC H200 is not supported.


In general, do not migrate boot volumes between boot controllers that use different drivers.
