Is it possible to to enable compression while performing virt-p2v ?

Solution Verified - Updated -

Issue

  • Is there a way to enable compression when performing a P2V?
  • We have a new project where we are going to need to import hundreds of machines that are only connected via 100Mbps links and have >200GB HDDs but very little actual data on those HDDs.
  • Is there a way to enable a compressed transfer of the disks from the bootable P2V image(s)? (Acronis allows this and we'll go that route if need be but would prefer to not have that extra step.)
