2.3.2. Virtualized to Virtualized Migration (V2V)

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 provides tools for converting virtual machines from other types of hypervisors to KVM. The virt-v2v tool converts and imports virtual machines from Xen, other versions of KVM, VMware ESX, and Hyper-V.
In Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.5 and later, the virt-v2v tool converts and imports virtual machines with virtual disk image formats including VHDX, VMDK, OVF, raw, and qcow2.

Important

The V2V tool for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 has been deprecated, and it is recommended to use the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 version. For more information, refer to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 V2V Guide.
