I will be P2V'ing a Dell R410 Server with 1TB Hardrive. I will be doing a Remote hot cloning, i.e., virtualizing a powered on physical machine.
Its been a while since ive done one and i dont remember if either the conversion part or the synchronization part at the end took a while or not or whether it caused any noticeable down time to the Physical Machine that is in use.
The plan is to Remote hot clone to a VM but keep it off the network while i get the VM ready before i put it on the network to officially switch over to it.
Im not sure what the Synchronization process does exactly or whether it is even needed in my scenario
