Oracle VM Server User's Guide


The hardware virtualized guest created by the P2V utility must have it’s own network
configuration. If you use the same network configuration as the original computer, a
network clash may occur as two computers on the network may have the same IP and
MAC address. When the guest is started, make sure Kudzu detects the network device
and configures the new network device.

You can run the P2V utility interactively, or as an automated process using a kickstart
configuration file. When you use the P2V utility with a kickstart file, no user
intervention is required.
