We have a K1000 appliance, maintenance agreement all up-to-date and everything.
We also have a massive VMware infrastructure in place and would like to eliminate the K1000 from our racks.

Would there be any problems with converting our physical K1000 to a VM (p2v) ? I know you can p2v linux boxes as we have done this in the past, however we were not sure if there were any "gotcha's" with the Kbox that tie it to the hardware.

Thank you.

You would just download the latest backup from your K1000 and restore it on the VK1000. It's a very simple process.

Sorry if I was not clear, but I am talking about virtualizing our existing K1000 appliance and converting it straight to a VM. I suppose we'll just try it and see what happens, worst case scenario we'll just go back to the physical one if the VM won't load.

Yes technically it is very simple. No, you don't p2v you get a new ovf and restore like airwolf said. Talk to sales about your options.

Running VMware converter to do a P2V is not a supported configuration. Like the others have said, you should talk to sales to see if you can get a OVF

Ouch: $1,000 fee to convert to a virtual license.
