Executive Summary

Oracle VM provides functionality to allow customers to easily convert and move Linux and Windows servers to run as guest Virtual Machines (VM) in Oracle VM Server Pools. This paper describes the virtual machine conversion functions built into Oracle VM in Release 2.1.2, and to plan and execute the virtual machine conversions using Oracle VM. The virtual machine conversion functions introduced in Oracle VM 2.1.2 include Physical to Virtual (P2V) and Virtual to Virtual (V2V) conversions. The P2V conversion utility allows administrators to perform an off-line conversion of any physical machine running supported versions of Windows or Linux to an Oracle VM hardware virtualized guest virtual machine.
