P2V and V2V migration tools in RHEV 3.0

Latest response



Which tools is best to convert P2V and V2V migration tools in RHEV 3.0. is there any default tools provided by Red hat ?


You can use virt-v2v to migrate vms from one virtualization platform to RHEL or RHEV.


See details at http://docs.redhat.com/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Virtualization/3.0/html/V2V_Guide/index.html


For pv2, there is no supported tool as of now. We are looking at including virt-p2v in a future version of RHEL. Upstream version can be found at http://libguestfs.org/virt-v2v/


You can also use third party tools like Acronis if you want to convert physical machines to virtual machines.

Acronis ABR11 can do migration (including P2V, V2V and V2P), backup and disaster recovery from within one product. It also has broad hypervisor support so you can migrate from almost any platform to RHEV. A free trial can be downloaded from our Marketplace here:
