*virt-p2v* is fully supported The *virt-p2v* tool, introduced in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.2 as a Technology Preview, is now fully supported. It enables converting physical machines to virtual machines compatible with the KVM hypervisor, and was previously available as a Technology Preview. *virt-p2v* is provided as an ISO image that contains a minimal Red Hat Enterprise Linux distribution and the tool itself. To convert a physical machine, burn the ISO image to a CD and use it to boot the physical machine. PXE booting and USB booting are also supported. Afterwards, follow the on-screen instructions to perform a manual conversion or activate the automated conversion. For further information, install the _virt-v2v_ package and see the virt-p2v(1) manual page, or refer to the following Knowledgebase article:
