The first step in the migration process is to implement the target Network Load Balancing cluster. If the target Network Load Balancing cluster already exists, proceed to the next step in the process, described in "Migrating to the Target Cluster" later in this chapter
The process for implementing the target is identical to the process for installing a new Network Load Balancing cluster. Complete the process described in "Implementing a New Cluster" earlier in this chapter. Ensure that implementing the target cluster does not disrupt applications running on the source cluster. For example, avoid modifying the network infrastructure that actively connects to the source cluster and avoid modifying DNS entries that direct clients to the source cluster.
