Migration is only achievable in a cluster. It is hypervisor dependant. Migration is used only
for CAP management and HA. In order to cross the hypervisor barrier you need to automate the
'create template > export template > convirt template > import template > provision'
process.

Anybody know a bit more in depth what that API call really does?  From the API docs it "Attempts
Migration of a VM to a different host or Root volume of the vm to a different storage pool".

Does this mean if the VM is on XenServer and I want to move it to vShpere, it does VHD to
OVA (VMDK?) conversion under the covers?

Just trying to understand this a bit better.

Thanks.
