    Xenserver P2V

    Anyone used this with a Windows server? On the Citrix site it mentions that a third party tool is required but the link is dead.

    For existing physical instances of Windows servers, a third-party tool is required. Windows P2V software and documentation is available for download from the XenSource website at http://www.xensource.com/partners/offers

    I've found it now thanks it's not easy to find, I wonder why it's not on the 5.5 media.

    Really? I thought you could use Xenconvert in Xenserver 5.0, well that makes sence then.


    EDIT

    Well that worked well, only a couple of errors when it came back up on the Xenserver due to it installing SCSI drivers but it's running well now.

    Pretty much as straight forward as in this link http://didyourestart.blogspot.com/20...xenserver.html

    I was referring to the part of the post that mentioned
    XenServer XenConvert 2.0.2
    I believe Version 2.0.2 was not written when Xenserver 5.5 came out.

    Sorry for the confusion

    If you want resizing ability, check out the XenConvert 2.1 tech preview. Otherwise it's easier to use imagex and restore the .wim to a freshly created vm.
