Another way to P2V NT

Raj Perumal Raj Perumal Profile: Raj Perumal

Hello again folks! This is an update to a previous blog post. So I was P2V’ing another Windows NT server the other day and I was able to get P2V to work with an older version of VMware converter.

VMware converter version 3.0.3 is the version I used and it installed into Windows NT just fine (reboot required). Then I was able to launch the application and connect to my ESXi server and launch the conversion of the physical machine.

This means I was able to do a hot clone of Windows NT 4. I hate working with NT boxes but at least we have an easy method to virtualize them. A lot of NT servers out there are on ailing hardware that is not on warranty so having a method to hot clone them is always a good thing!
