I have a dedicated server that I have no physical access to. It has one partition 295GB and 265GB are free. What we want to do is be able to clone this server and transfer it to our local VMware environment.
We have Full RDP access.
Windows 2008 Without Hyper V. (We do have a Licenses for this server so there is no concern here)
I was thinking I should be able to shrink the one partition and create a second partition. Is there any way to get an image copy of the C partition while it is running? Then convert that to a VMware machine. We are running VMware ESX 4.0 and ESXi 4.1 Enterprise Plus.
