          Select a Powered On Linux Machine to Convert

          You can select a powered on Linux machine to convert. The source machine can be a physical or virtual machine.

          You can convert powered on machines that run Linux only if GRUB is installed as the boot loader on the source. LILO boot loader is not supported.

          Prerequisites

          Before you continue with the conversion, you must prepare the source Linux machine.

          • Enable SSH on the source Linux machine.
          • Make sure that you use the root account or account with sudo privileges for all commands to convert a powered on Linux machine.
          • Make sure that the Converter Standalone server machine has network access to the Linux source machine.
          • Make sure that no other conversion job is using the source you select.

          • Select Remote Linux machine from the drop down menu.
          • Provide the IP address or DNS name and select authentication method. Provide the IP address or DNS name and root credentials for the Linux machine you want to convert.
