Migrating a vCenter Server instance from physical to virtual can be done in a couple of different ways:

  • Manually migrating vCenter Server and all of its dependencies (http://kb.vmware.com/kb/5850444)
  • A physical to virtual (P2V) migration of the vCenter Server machine itself

As the former process is much better documented than the latter, here is the process for performing a physical to virtual migration of a vCenter Server machine.
