VMware Virtual to Physical (V2P) migration

Bookmark and Share

We all know that it is possible to migrate from Physical machine to Virtual Machine (P2V migration). (If someone is not aware of it then look at a free tool from VMware called vCenter Convertor).  That is what most of us used to do to consolidate data center from physical to virtual environment.

However, recently, I had a requirement to migrate Virtual machine to Physical machine (V2P migration). And while googling, I found a whitepaper from VMware Virtual Machine to Physical Machine Migration.

I was impressed by what I found and planning to test it if time permits. If someone has gone through Virtual Machine to Physical Machine Migration (V2P migration) then please share your experience in comments below.
