XenServer Conversion Tools
I found out that Citrix has multiple versions of XenConvert. Contrary to what is written on the download page, only the 2.3.1 version has the capability of converting a XVA to VHD. I just wasted quite some time troubleshooting why version 2.4.1 won’t show me the option of taking a XVA. Beware! The link to the latest conversion tools is here.
P2V of server having GPT disks
Ok so I ran into a problem while doing P2V to Xenserver. We have a few servers which have a UEFI BIOS, Their disks are configured as GPT. I have tried these two tools to do a P2V but have been unsuccessful: 1. Citrix’s Xenconverter and 2. VMware’s vCenter Converter
