P2V and Disk Alignment

There were some questions asked the other day regarding using VMware Convertor and whether it performs a disk alignment when performing a P2V.

The answer is NO. VMware Convertor doesn’t do any disk alignment. You will need to carry out the alignment manually afterwards.

I have listed some good links covering disk alignment and how to perform this task.
