Hi Ravi,

You can use VMware Converter (now called vCenter Converter: ). Depending on your Linux flavour, you can do hot or cold P2Vs. Have a look at the documents for limitations.

The conversion failed with VMware converter 3.0.3 enterprise - unsupported OS (or something similar)

I installed the standalone version of converter on the linux box and the hot clone worked fine.
