Citrix Releases XenConvert 2.3.1

Citrix has released a new version of its XenConvert physical-to-virtual (P2V) and virtual-to-virtual (V2V) conversion tool.  The latest release is now at version 2.3.1.

  • As a P2V tool, XenConvert can convert a server or desktop workload from an online physical machine running Windows to a XenServer virtual machine or Provisioning Services vDisk.
  • As a V2V tool, XenConvert can convert a server or desktop workload from an offline virtual machine or disk, containing any guest operating system including Windows and Linux, to a XenServer VM. Formats of an offline virtual machine or disk include VHD, OVF, VMDK, and XVA.
  • XenConvert uses OVF technology from Citrix Project Kensho to describe and migrate physical and virtual machines efficiently using an open format.
  • XenConvert includes a wizard to use interactively, and a command line interface to use from a script.
  • XenConvert 2.3 adds interoperability with XenServer 5.6 Feature Pack 1, interoperability with Provisioning Services 5.6 SP1, and fixes several defects affecting conversions from a physical machine and XVA.
  • XenConvert 2.3.1 resolves an issue in environments where DHCP is unavailable on the management network.
