Unable to convert a V2i file created by "cold" backup to VMDK from within the recovery environment ("from the SRD").
In the Symantec Recovery Environment via booting a system with the Symantec Recovery Disk.
Not a feature of the recovery disk.
P2V conversion cannot be performed from the SRD. Conversions need to be done through an installed SSR console on either a server or workstation.
NOTE: By booting a virtual guest system that has mounted the VMDK file has a virtual disk, the V2i image could then be restored to this mounted VMDK file using the SRD.
