Alibaba Cloud provides a Windows graphical user interface (GUI) version for a Server Migration Center (SMC) client. This allows you to migrate Windows servers to Alibaba Cloud. The settings for the SMC client on the GUI are the same as that on the command-line interface (CLI). The Windows GUI version is compatible with the CLI version.
In the daemon mode, you can import the migration source information by using the SMC client. Then, you can log on to the SMC console to complete the migration. You only need to configure Access Id and Secret Key. For more information, see Migration process.
The following video shows how to use the Windows GUI. This allows you to migrate a source server to Alibaba Cloud in the SMC console:

The settings you configure are written to the user_config.json file of the SMC client.
