Ubuntu virtual VMWare to physical

I'm thinking of developing an Ubuntu server in my VMWare Server 1.07 environment on my home PC. Then I want to convert the virtual image files so that I can install the prepared server OS on a physical machine at work.
(No, I am not going to run VMWare Server 1.07 or later on the physical machine!!!). How can this be done in a most effective way?

Hi,

i dont think you have any virtual2physical solution for linux variants. But you can try your luck with vmware converter.

you can otherwise try acronis true image on ubuntu.

check this post on how to recover ubuntu from acronis true image

this might sound interesting to you. This is kind of Ghost image software for unix.

bhanukir7: I thought VMWare Converter only converts to/from Windows-platforms ?  It seems so according to the documentation. But I might try it.

the non-windows is more of a experimental one. But try the ghost4unix which sounds a better option.
