TrueImageCM how to specify vm_type "xenserver"?

By cptstefan ·
Hi everybody

I would like to convert a True Image file of a Windows 2003 server (.tib) into a .vhd file and import it into XenServer afterwards (using XenConvert). It is not a problem at all if I use the True Image GUI, but I would like to create a script which does it automatically. This is the command I would like to use:

trueimagecmd /convert /filename:C:\image.tib /target_filename:C:\convimage.vhd /vm_type:??? /harddisk:1

My problem is that I do not know how to specify the vm_type XenServer. According to the manual, the CLI only offers these parameters:

I know that there MUST be a way because if you convert the image with the GUI, the VM type XenServer is available!

I have also posted this question here, but I did not get a single reply.

Any help is appreciated.

Thank you

The format is used for Microsoft Virtual PC and was also adopted by XenSource for what is now the Citrix XenServer hypervisor. The VHD format is used by Microsoft Windows Server 2008 which includes a hypervisor-based virtualization technology called Hyper-V.
