Hi all, I have physical servers running on dying hardware. Migrating to a new domain etc would be too much/expensive/long/painful so the chosen path is to virtualize these servers in a first stage, so they are "secured" then migrate to a new domain in a later stage.
My question is about the options around the P2V (vMware). I know I can simply run the converter from a laptop for instance, but in order to maximize my time, and the new server's resources, I am wondering if there may be a way to "simply" connect to the ESXi host, tell it "grab this IP and convert it to a VM" ? Or something similar ?
Thanks for your ideas guys.
