Converting Physical Servers to Virtual Machines

Posted by decipherinfosys on July 24, 2008

In almost any virtualization project, you will run into the need of converting physical machines to virtual machines. Both VMWare and Microsoft provide solutions for that. Here is the link that gives the details of the vmware converter. And here is the link for the Microsoft Virtual Server Migration Toolkit and another one that details VMM (Virtual Machine Manager) over here.

We have used the vmware one quite a few times and it is pretty easy to use and very robust as well. It does not require any downtime either. Haven’t had any experience with the MSFT toolkit so will post on it once we play with it in our labs.
