P2V Physical to Virtual

Latest response


While searching for a way to virtualize a physical machine onto VMWare, we have found that REAR can be used.

Can anyone help here or have done this before ?


Hi Tamer,

You may want to check out this discussion about P2V conversion : https://access.redhat.com/discussions/3488781
Also, you can use the VMware vCenter Converter tool to convert a physical system to a virtual VMware system. :)


tried the VMWare vCenter Converter but the VM wont boot after conversion.

The link to the discussion was very helpful, thanks. I do prefer to use the VMware converter, is there any possible ways to use it and be able to boot the machine ? My last option would be using the p2v iso.
