Citrix XenConvert 2.1.1 – Released
What’s New in Citrix XenConvert 2.1.1
This release adds many new conversion features.
Converting and Resizing Multiple Volumes
XenConvert can now convert and resize multiple volumes from a physical machine to all destinations:
•Provisioning Services vDisk.
For conversions to VHD, OVF Package, and XenServer, XenConvert automatically resizes the virtual disk to accommodate the used space of the selected volumes, the free space requested for each volume, and any unallocated space requested for the virtual disk.
For the conversion to a Provisioning Services vDisk, XenConvert can automatically resize the volumes on the destination disk so they fit in the Provisioning Services vDisk by changing their amount of free space. After giving first preference to the Windows Boot Volume, the free space amounts of other volumes are allocated proportionately.
Most conversions now use OVF technology with dynamic (sparse) VHDs resulting in faster conversion times and lower free space requirements on the local disk.
Compatible with Project Kensho 1.3
XenConvert produces and consumes an OVF Package compatible with Project Kensho 1.3 including new features such as EULA and compression method.
Test XenServer Default Storage Repository
For conversions to XenServer, test the availability of a default storage repository required by XenConvert. Also, for conversions from ‘This Machine to XenServer’, test for sufficient free space on the default storage repository.
