Linux to vmware


Hey guys, ive got an hdd which is a ghosted clone a working server and im supposed to further develop the system, what i want to do is see if there is a way to somehow turn that disk into a vmware disk, so that i have a virtual copy of the disk and run it using vmware and know that if i ever mess somethign up i can kust go back and restore the image and the HDD will never be touched. thanks for the help.

HD Image to VMWare

Hi,

Yes there is.

On versions of VMWare other than workstation, you can use a tool known as P2V (Physical to Virtual). This will create a VMWare session for you.

If you download and run the the newly released version of VMWare server (Previously known as GSX) it should come with it.

Regards

Richard
