I am currently working on migrating our single FCI Prod SQL Server 2008 Enterprise instance (on Win2008) multiple databases (>2TB total) to a new 2-node WSFC cluster (Win2012 R2 & SQL2014 enterprise) AlwaysOn AG.
The current single FCI prod server will be decommissioned after migration.
I could use LogShipping to migrate from our current single FCI Prod server to the new WSFC cluster Node 1 (Primary). Then, backup the Node 1 (Primary) db's and Restore on Node 2(Secondary) to prepare Node 2 (Secondary) and then Create/JOIN the AG group.
I would like to reduce the preparation time for the Node 2 (Secondary) i.e. downtime during migration i.e. to avoid separately backing up the Node 1 db's and Restoring on Node 2(Secondary).
If we Logship our current Prod db's to both Node 1 and Node 2 simultaneously, then is it possible to create an AG and JOIN db's on both these Nodes 1 and 2 successfully at the same time?
