Mornign All,
Ok i was wondering what did the companies that moved from physical GW (SLES/OES) and some of them on a cluster use to do the migration to virtual, surely not that vmware "converter application"?.. i used it a couple of times, and it is very unstable in my opinion, and that were not even for big migrations, just a windows server here and there?..and one or 2 small linux boxes?..
tell me there is some magic software that works evertytime and the first time ... platespin?.... 

Kind Regards,
