Physical and P2V virtual machine runing on the same network at the same time.

We have a production server that we would like to run a P2V conversion of for testing but they both need to be on the same network at the same time. If I run a P2V conversion and then run sysprep or newsid will this enable me to rename/re-IP it, add it to the domain and run them both on the same network? I need to be sure that the virtual machine will not knock the physical server off of the network.

You should run the P2V conversion, and then boot the virtual machine in an isolated network.
Assuming the server is already part of your domain, you should remove the virtual server from the domain,
while is is still in the isolated network, and is not able to contact your domain.
Your server will tell you, that the domain can not be contacted, but finally you should be able to remove it anyway.
Then I suggest that you rename the virtual server and then reboot it.
After that you should run newsid, and change the IP-adress of the virtual server (if it is not given by DHCP, then it should get a new one automatically).
Then finally you should give the virtual server access to your network, join it to the domain, and voila - you are up and running with the 2 servers, without
any interference.

So, I only need to run newsid and not sysprep. Excellent, Thank you!
