How to do P2V the RHEL4 running on HP Proliant BL465c - AMD

Hi All,

We would like to convert the physical server RHEL4 running on HP Proliant BL465c (AMD processor) to VMware.

What are the procedures we have to follow to accomplish that?

Shalom,

Vmware itself has a P2V tool that is free on their website.

Xen has a P2V tool which is also open source.

If you like paying http://acronis.com can also assist in this process.
