Well, I'm always in favor of killing Grid Control, but in this case, I hope it works for you. I don't think we've had any problems, certainly in newer releases. Linux p2v is much more straightforward than windows as well.

Good luck!

This looks like it should do what I'm looking for. The datasheet they have
shows why our local VMWare expert would not have known about using this for
Linux, since the purchased Management Server version only seems to support
converting Win servers for some reason.

Thanks much! Hopefully it won't kill my Production Grid Control server... :)
