NAME

       virt-v2v-support - Supported hypervisors, virtualization management systems and guests in
       virt-v2v

DESCRIPTION

       This page documents which foreign hypervisors, virtualization management systems and guest
       types that virt-v2v(1) can support.

       Note this page applies to upstream virt-v2v from http://libguestfs.org and in downstream
       distributions of virt-v2v sometimes features are intentionally removed, or are present but
       not supported.

   Hypervisors (Input)
       VMware ESXi
           Must be managed by VMware vCenter ≥ 5.0 unless VDDK is available.

       OVA exported from VMware
           OVAs from other hypervisors will not work.

       VMX from VMware
           VMX files generated by other hypervisors will not work.

       RHEL 5 Xen
       SUSE Xen
       Citrix Xen
           Citrix Xen has not been recently tested.

       Hyper-V
           Not recently tested.  Requires that you export the disk or use virt-p2v(1) on Hyper-V.

       Direct from disk images
           Only disk images exported from supported hypervisors, and using container formats
           supported by qemu.

       Physical machines
           Using the virt-p2v(1) tool.

   Hypervisors (Output)
       QEMU and KVM only.

   Virtualization management systems (Output)
       OpenStack
       Red Hat Virtualization (RHV) 4.1 and up
       Local libvirt
           And hence virsh(1), virt-manager(1), and similar tools.

       Local disk

   Guests
       Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3, 4, 5, 6, 7
       CentOS 3, 4, 5, 6, 7
       Scientific Linux 3, 4, 5, 6, 7
       Oracle Linux
       Fedora
       SLES 10 and up
       OpenSUSE 10 and up
       Debian 6 and up
       Ubuntu 10.04, 12.04, 14.04, 16.04, and up
       Windows XP to Windows 10 / Windows Server 2016
           We use Windows internal version numbers, see
           https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Microsoft_Windows_versions

           Currently NT 5.2 to NT 6.3 are supported.

           See "WINDOWS" below for additional notes on converting Windows guests.

   Guest firmware
       BIOS is supported for all guest types and hypervisors.

       VMware allows you to present UEFI firmware to guests (instead of the ordinary PC BIOS).
       Virt-v2v can convert these guests, but requires that UEFI is supported by the target
       hypervisor.

       Currently KVM supports OVMF, an open source UEFI firmware, and can run these guests.

       Since OVMF support was only recently added to KVM (in 2014/2015), not all target
       environments support UEFI guests yet:

       UEFI on libvirt, qemu
           Supported.  Virt-v2v will generate the correct libvirt XML (metadata) automatically,
           but note that the same version of OVMF must be installed on the conversion host as is
           installed on the target hypervisor, else you will have to adjust paths in the
           metadata.

       UEFI on OpenStack
           Not supported.

       UEFI on oVirt or RHV
           Supported since oVirt/RHV ≥ 4.2 and virt-v2v ≥ 1.39.12.
