I am attempting to perform a P2V migration of several Dell PowerEdge servers into VMware vCenter (ESX 4.0). I keep running into issues with different methods that I am trying. Has anyone found a method for P2V that doesnt have issues?
Here is what Im doing:
VMware Converter Cold Clone Boot CD: states that it can not determine the OS
VMware Converter Standalone/Enterprise: Fails
VizionCore VConverter remote Cold clone: usually unable to load the PXE
VizionCore VConverter warm: successful, but when the VM boots it either BSOD with 0x0000007b or states that it can not find the ntoskernel.
Any help is greatly appreciated!!!
