Vmware P2V question
Posted on 2012-09-12
I found that there are several physical machines that are using GPT disks instead of MBR……..
Most of them are under 2TB for sure.... Only one server has more than 2TB disk.
Is there a way during the P@V migration to migrate the server to MBR disk. We perfer to use MBR instead of GPT.
Can you think of ways to convert this with least amount of time, short of restoring from backup.
Also... during this process, we found we have to repurpose existing hardware for ESXi.
Due to this, we need to P2V the server to a temporary location, i.e File server.
Is there a way with converter to place on temporary stoarge, (without any available ESXi, vcenter, or host) so then we can rebuild the physical server with ESXi, then transfer the VM from temporary location to the ESXi build and datastore?
