I have a two live Debian linux servers that I would like to move to virtual just for testing usage. It seems that there are many solutions to do this, but I am looking for something that is free, and will be able to create a VM of the server while it is live.
I have looked into VMWare ESXi4, but it seems to be an overly complicated process, needing additional computers to run as client, ESXi server, machine to save VM etc. What a pain.
I have also been told that Oracle makes a great P2V open source product.
Does anyone have EXPERIENCE in doing this, and have a recommendation for something that is easy to use, will allow live P2V, is free, and the final VM will run in either VMWare Fusion or VirtualBox?
