Planning for Physical-to-Virtual Migrations

Where supported by the candidate operating system, System Center Virtual Machine Manager will be the primary method by which physical workloads are migrated to virtual machines. In System Center Virtual Machine Manager, a P2V conversion is the process by which a functioning physical computer is copied to an identicalor nearly identicalvirtual machine. During a P2V conversion, disk images of the physical hard disks of the target computer are created and formatted as virtual hard disks (.vhd files) for use in the new, virtual machine. The new, virtual machine will have the same identity as the original, physical machine upon which it is based.

System Center Virtual Machine Manager can perform either an offline or an online P2V migration on all supported operating systems (only offline is available for Windows 2000). Online conversions rely upon the Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS), so the source machine does not have to be rebooted during the process. In an offline conversion, the source machine is rebooted into the Windows® Pre-installation Environment (Windows PE) to image the physical

disks.

The following table lists the online and offline support for P2V migrations using System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008 R2:
