I need to update my old computer (Mavericks) before migrating to my new computer (El Capitan)?

It is not necessary. Migration wizard will allow you to move your files always your old Mac running OS X Snow Leopard or a later version, if OS X Mavericks is valid. See-> move your content to a new Mac - Apple Support

  • Need help: vSphere 4.1 old cluster to a migration 5.1 new cluster

    Need help!

    Well, we need to replace the old vmware 4.1 (3 former hosts in cluster) with the most recent output 5.1 (3 new hosts in cluster).

    We have 3 DAS old_hosts connected to the SAN HP P2000 G3 FC (we have only a single SAN who has 2 active FC ctrl with FC port 2 each - if only one FC port is free).

    As the new material is very different (1 Xeon E5335 2 GHz for every former host) and 2 Xeon E5 - 2630 2.30 GHz for each new host I'm not so sure be allowed to add new_host to the old cluster, not you?

    If this is the case, that is the best strategy to run a migration as possible interruption less?

    Anyone can suggest me what logical steps, we need to achieve our goal?

    (b) create new cluster with EVC mode enable (based on the old family)

    so, I don't do any CVS operation on the old cluster?    Y/N

    Nothing changes in the old cluster and other Word is YES! operation of EVC.

    (d) to migrate all your virtual machines in esx old new host esx (with sufficient resources)

    When I see in my inventory vcenter the old and the new cluster in order to migrate a virtual machine between them that I have to drag and drop the virtual machine on the label of the new cluster name? It is enough, or there is another way to do this?

    Yes, you can drag and drop again cluster or you may use the Migration Wizard to migrate the virtual machines. Both way can be works.

    When I have all the virtual machines in the new cluster, the situation is:

    -cluster hosts are running in VCA mode

    -VMs are run in EVC mode

    so if I now turn off the CVS mode on the cluster hosts automatically will work with all the features of the CPU or they should be stop/start?

    VCA mode cannot be disabled for virtual machines operating in EVC mode. If you want to disable, you must stop your virtual machines before first VCA mode off.

    FYI, the VCA mode is for mixed with different hosts of the family of processors, but in your case, the VCA mode is you help to minimize downtime and the planning of your downtime for virtual machines. If you don't want to use the old family processor, then you must turn off your VM and migrate to new hosts. So in this case, you have no need to allow the VCA. This CVS is you help migrate live Webcam virtual machine to the new family of processor host without downtime. Because virtual machines live runs on the cpuID of processor mode the lowest.

    If you want to disable the VCA mode on the cluster, you need to do that there is no VMs is under tension. Because to the VCA ID CPU mode will change.

    Just my cents

    Redchecker,

    There is no such thing as 'old' updates. They are there to protect against a vulnerability or provide updates of the o/s. withdrawal defeats the purpose of them being there.

  • How can I get my old iMac Mavericks on my new computer El Capitan iPhoto?

    I'm an amateur photo with literally thousands of photos of scenic and nature, all labeled with keywords and manually marked locations (since my DSLR is not an internal GPS and therefore cannot automatically geotag photos) in iPhoto on our old computer that runs on the Mavericks. Recently, we bought a new iMac that runs on El Capitan, and when we moved my data from the old computer, all of my iPhoto library moved into Photos. Unfortunately, because the pictures does not support the manual tagging locations, all hours of work I put in dropping the pins on maps to show the exact location where all my photos have been taken has disappeared. Enter Photos and keywords to adapt to all of the States, cities and specific locations where these pictures were taken just is not practical; my list of keywords would get horribly difficult to handle, and a good number of these photos were taken in "one-of-a-kind" tasks because they were taken on the fly from a moving vehicle. And that is not even taking into consideration all overtime work that would result. There must be someone out there who is dealing with the frustration of having to deal with a system that was designed for the casual snapshot-takers rather than serious photo enthusiasts! I still have the old computer with iPhoto installed on it and all the photos that I put in it until we bought the new computer. Is it possible that I can get the old computer to the new iPhoto? Can I put it on an external drive or DVD and copy it to the El Cap computer as iPhoto, or will it simply push all in Photos or choke and gag on that? I continue to work with my photos in iPhoto on your old computer, and I hope that he does not die in the near future? (And while we're at it, has any outside me informed Apple photos how bad works for those who need features in iPhoto that does not get incorporated in the Photos? I left a note on the comments, but I have no way of knowing if someone is on my suggestion.)

    Click here and try following the instructions; you will only be able to do if you got before where associated with iPhoto on the Mac App store.

    A version of aged more than 9.6 iPhoto does not open in Yosemite and newer.
