Has anybody ever stumbled upon the need to replicate a live and in production server to a virtual machine?

I’m trying to virtualize a bunch of servers but I can’t figure out how can I mirror the file system. I do not want to start from scratch with them.

The whole idea is to transfer them to the virtual side as they currently are.


Any advice is welcome.

Thank you.
