P2V SunFire X\* servers

About once a month, I google for references to my blog to gain a new knowledge. This time, I found one in VMWare forum.

VMware Communities: ESX 3.5 P2V Solaris 10 Sunfire X4100 ...
i'm in the midst of finishing up my DR project and the last two pieces rely on migrating 3 physical servers to my ESX farm.

which lead to another thread in the forum:

VMware Communities: vmconverter sun solaris 10 ...
I have succesful convert a Sun Solaris 10 fysical machine with the VMconverter 3.03 boot cd.


Looks like P2V of Solaris10 is quite commonplace. It also looks like that VMware converter's "Cold cloning" can clone Solaris10, which costs $$. If one wants to try P2V without paying, using free backup/restore boot-CD  may work, which I documented in my past entry.
