Citrix XenConvert is a physical-to-virtual (P2V) conversion tool that converts a workload from a server or desktop machine running Windows to a virtual machine in XenServer, virtual appliance, virtual disk, or virtual disk connected to Provisioning Services. A workload can contain a Windows operating system, applications, and data.
XenConvert produces a virtual appliance in the Open Virtualization Format (OVF) that XenCenter can import into XenServer. Refer to the XenCenter and XenServer documentation for information about importing a virtual appliance into XenServer.
XenConvert produces a virtual disk in the Dynamic Virtual Hard Disk (VHD) format that is compatible with XenServer and Provisioning Services. Refer to the XenCenter and XenServer documentation about importing a VHD into XenServer. Refer to the Provisioning Services documentation for information about importing a virtual disk into Provisioning Services.
