Q: Does PlateSpin Migrate take control require me to insert a boot CD/DVD into the source workload server or does the Migrate (boot file modification) take care of it?
I want to perform an offline migration from a remote location.
A: A user should be able to boot the source with the ISO remotely via PXE.
Along those same lines, if the issue is the lack of a physical optical drive, we have a process to create a bootable USB thumb drive as well (per my last blog post).
