Veeam Quick Migration process - VM power-state clarification

Pls clarify the power state of each VM  during and once migration completes, and how 'final' disk and memory state is managed to allow zero/minimum downtime transition to the target.


Eg :

I see something linke this :

  1. The source VM is  in power ON ->
  2. Veeam migration process starts ->
  3. migration completes ->
  4. ? source is powered off  or 'suspended' ->
  5. ? 'finale changes are replicated' disk & memory state are replicated (?) to target
  6. ? target is 'activated' or powered-on
