Converting Blackberry server into Virtual Image for backup
Posted on 2009-05-14
I need help in trying to accomplish this task.
I have a BES server that I need to upgrade to BES profressional. Because we are at an old revision we have to do step upgrades. As part of my upgrade plan, I would like to create a virtual image of this server with VMware Converter and have this image ready for backup in case my physical server runs into issues with the upgrade. I can then power up the Virtual server to run in the meantime to resume production while I repair the physical server.
As I run the VMware converter at one step it warns me that Sysprep files are not loaded on the converter server machine. My questions:
- What are the Sysprep files?
- Where do I get them?
- Do I need to generate them on the physical server to be virtualized?
- What is the exact file or files that I need to load on the converter server machine?
All help is much appreciated
