Introduction to XenConvert

by Gohar Ahmed | September 2013 | Enterprise Articles

In this article by Gohar Ahmed, the author of Implementing Citrix XenServer Quickstarter we will learn about XenConvert.

Citrix XenConvert is a tool to convert physical machines to virtual machines; that is, a Physical-to-Virtual (P2V) conversion tool. It converts a Windows-based workload from a server or desktop machine to a virtual machine in a XenServer, virtual appliance, virtual disk, or virtual disk connected to Provisioning Services.

A conversion involves copying the contents of the workload and configuring its operating systems for XenServer. So, the workload can be applications and data besides the base Windows operating system. XenConvert can convert from a single server or desktop (physical machine) running Windows to a provisioned virtual disk or VHD that Provisioning Services can import.

A good scenario would be converting a physical Windows server with all the applications hosted in it to a virtual machine for pre-staging, so that the hosted applications' behavior can be tested after adjustments. This can be the operating system upgrade or application updates/upgrades.
