Red Hat Training

A Red Hat training course is available for Red Hat Linux

4.20. RHEA-2012:0965 — new package: virt-p2v

A new virt-p2v package is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
Virt-P2V is a tool for conversion of a physical server to a virtual guest.
This enhancement update adds the virt-p2v package to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, which contains a bootable ISO image for Virt-P2V conversion. The ISO image is also available on Red Hat Network in the Downloads section of the following channels:
  • RHEL AUS Server (v. 6.2 for 64-bit x86_64)
  • RHEL EUS Server (v. 6.2.z for 64-bit x86_64)
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux Client (v. 6 for 64-bit x86_64)
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux Compute Node (v. 6 for x86_64)
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6 for 64-bit x86_64)
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6 for x86_64)
The bootable image is needed to use the tool as the disks must be unmounted and not in use at the time of conversion. It allows you to convert servers running Microsoft Windows or Red Hat Enterprise Linux into virtual guests on Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization or libvirt hosts. For further information, refer to the V2V Guide. (BZ#807445)
All users who require virt-p2v should install this new package.
