== Performing a Live Migration using the Failover Cluster Manager ==
Assuming that the system requirements outlined earlier in this chapter have been met and a virtual machine is running on a host within such an environment, a live migration can be now initiated.
Live migrations may be initiated either from within the ''Failover Cluster Manager'' console or using Windows PowerShell. A migration may be performed using the manager as follows:
In the Failover Cluster Manager snap-inconsole, if select the cluster that you want to configure is not displayed, which the source and destination Hyper-V hosts (referred to as nodes within the context of a cluster) belong. In the tree in the left hand pane of the console tree, select the node on which the virtual machine is currently running, right-click Failover Cluster Manager, click Manage a Cluster, on the virtual machine in the main pane and then select or specify the cluster that you want''Live migrate virtual machine to another node''.
In the console tree (on the left)Finally, select the destination node under which you want to move a clustered virtual machine using initiate the live migration. Right-click Once completed, the virtual machine resource displayed in the center pane (not on the left), and then click Live migrate virtual machine node will be listed as being assigned to another node. Select the different node that you want to move the virtual machine to. When migration is complete, the virtual machine is one it was origianlly running on the new node. To verify that the virtual machine successfully migrated, you will see the virtual machine listed under the new node (in ''Current Owner)''.
