We are running Vmware Esxi 4.0 and want to convert a physical server to a virtual server. The physical server is in a datacenter (probably in germany) and the new server hosting the Esxi software is located here in the UK.
I have attempted to do this using VMWare convertor but without any luck, it transfers (takes about 24 hours to complete) but the machine then does not want to boot. Could someone give me an insight as to what this?
From memory dont event get a bios screen or if wee do it stops there! it does not really get into booting windows.
I should mention this is a windows 2003 machine with a domain controller and exchange 2003 with several hdds
