About This Manual

This manual describes how to use the VMware P2V Assistant: how to install it, and how to use it to create virtual disks for use as archives and for use with VMware virtual machines.

Intended Audience

The P2V Assistant helps you in the physical-to-virtual disk migration process by automating several steps. However, it is not intended to serve as an unattended migration tool for casual use. The physical-to-virtual migration process is complex and should be attempted only by technical system administrators with a good understanding of, and familiarity with, operating systems, drivers, imaging tools, common operating system concepts (such as a hardware abstraction layer [HAL]), and VMware products.

You are encouraged to take P2V training, offered by VMware Professional Services, before using this application. VMware partners must pass Certification by VMware before using this application.
