I have a Linux (Fedora 23) box which has among other things VMware workstation installed. I'd like to create a virtual clone of the physical Linux box, so I can run it in VMware workstation in order to test some upgrades before upgrading the physical box.
I've looked at the VMware Standalone Converter but it will only p2v a Linux system to an ESXi infrastructure (which I don't have).
Is there any way I can make a clone of the physical system, so I can spin it up as a VM?
To be clear the upgrades I want to test aren't to do with VMware, so I won't be running VMware workstation on the VM.
I know there are other options, but I'll have to re-partition the box to create a dual boot, and I'd rather not do that if I can avoid it, and creating a VM clone seems like it would be the easiest and most flexible for me.
