Hello Experts,

we are in a process of virtualize our servers. we converted our Domain Controller from physical to virtual using VMware converter. after conversion we faced following,
-virtual server NIC did not take the IP, we assigned same IP manually
-when clients login, asking for the credentials to connect to file server in which user profiles are synchronized and after sometime it may get connected
-nslookup to our domain not getting properly

We have only one DC in our network and what is the recommendable way to convert the DC to Virtual ?. (and our DC having teamed NICs)

Valuable replies will be highly appreciated.
