I've been playing with a Hyper-V 2008 R2 server with SBS 2011 & 2008 R2 (running RDS). I'm thinking of dumping Hyper-v and moving to the entry vSpere Essentials (physical machine has 64 GB which I want to access so the free licence isn't suitable with 32GB limit) Will SBS 2011 run on vSphere Essentials?
The biggest issue is because I have fixed disks in the Hyper-v backup selection for bare metal so taking forever to USB 2.
We have a pool of USB 2 drives 1TB. If I move to vSphere will I be able to use USB pass through to the SBS server? We have a backupassist licence so I would plan on installing backupasssit on the SBS VM and running backups from there. Is restore of the SBS reliable in this fasion?
Looking for gotchas etc on running these two VM in a vSpere from people who do it or have tried
