The virt-v2v package provides a tool for converting virtual machines to use the KVM hypervisor or Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization. The tool can import a variety of guest operating systems from libvirt-managed hosts and VMware ESX.
  • VMware Tools on Microsoft Windows is unable to disable itself when it detects that it is no longer running on a VMware platform. As a consequence, converting a Microsoft Windows guest from VMware ESX, which has VMware Tools installed, resulted in multiple error messages being displayed on startup. In addition, a Stop Error (also known as Blue Screen of Death, or BSOD) was displayed every time when shutting down the guest. To work around this issue, users are advised to uninstall VMware Tools from Microsoft Windows guests before conversion. (BZ#711972)
