We need one simple deployment of converting a given server with some OS converted to a Virtual Machine.



-> to have a simple Linux/fedora machine and install apache or any web server for testing or any application for that matter – the purpose here is to see if this application works after the conversion to a virtual machine


-> Convert P2V using the tools.


-> Start virtual machine and see if works.


We have our conversion server in place, but we would like to know how could we initiate virt-p2v GUI from my physical server, we have difficulties understanding this -> When you start virt-p2v, you'll see a graphical configuration dialog that walks you through connection to the conversion server, asks for the password, which local hard disks you want to convert, and other things like the name of the guest to create and the number of virtual CPUs to give it.


How do we start virt-p2v on a fedora 21


Further, we see this:

[root@localhost ~]# yum install virt-p2v

Loaded plugins: langpacks

updates/21/x86_64/metalink                                                                                                                                                    |  14 kB  00:00:00

updates                                                                                                                                                                       | 4.7 kB  00:00:00

No package virt-p2v available.

Error: Nothing to do

[root@localhost ~]# virt-p2v --help

bash: virt-p2v: command not found...


Could you please help us with the steps in getting up the GUI


Sorry if this is very basic and if it seems to be a stupid question, apologize upfront as we are taking a stab @ it for the first time... Awaiting for response patiently....


Thanks & Regards,
