Question:  Will P2V be added back to SCVMM 2012 R2?


I doubt it.  We have a few free P2V tools.  Disk2vhd and the Microsoft Virtual Machine Converter. 

Here is an excerpt from the What's New in VMM in System Center 2012 R2 document

Discontinued support, in System Center 2012 R2, of the VMM feature that enabled conversion of existing physical computers into virtual machines through the physical-to-virtual (P2V) conversion process. If you need to do P2V conversions, use the Microsoft Virtual Machine Converter (MVMC). For more information, see Download Microsoft Virtual Machine Converter 3.0.
