[virt-tools-list] virt-v2v question involving esx



Hi,

I have a vm on an esx server that I want to convert using virt-v2v.  I
know that it can connect to the esx server and copy the vmdk files
down to do its conversion, but can I just use wget or something like
that to copy the vmdk files down first, then use virt-v2v to convert
the vm?

The reason that I ask is that it would be better for me to do it this
way, so that after I copy the vm files down, I can start the vm back
up and let it be used while virt-v2v does the conversion on the copied
image files.  I like virt-v2v, but it takes a long time to do it's job
with the copying.

Thanks.

-Kenny
