v2v using converter
Posted on 2011-02-14
I want to do a v2v conversion on a virtual Domain Controller. I want to take the clone to offsite and test whether I can restore the DC with the same config and roles in the offsite network. that network doesn't have connectivity to the production network.
Is there a documentation on how to do this? How different is it from p2v conversion using the same?
1) will the target VM be able to boot up with the image of the source VM and come up exactly as the source machine or will it need some configuration?
2) If the 2 VMs, i.e the source and the destination, are on two different networks which are not connected, how to do I make the image accessible. Can I copy the image from the source onto an external HDD and then use that to boot up the destination? Approximately how big will be the image created by Converter?
