We use Vmotion in our environment.  Another (pay) option is Platespin, 
which Novell obtained by a buyout a few years back. See
  http://www.novell.com/products/migrate/  for more details.  We never 
really evaluated it, but I did watch a demonstration once.  It seemed 
pretty good.  Of course, you'd be dealing with Novell, so depending on 
your politics and/or concern over what Attachemate might do, you might 
want to wait.
